The Laboratory for Macromolecular Crystallography was created in 1998 to expand the role of structural biology in the OUHSC scientific community.
The laboratory itself is equipped with modern crystallographic equipment and computers. The laboratory is shared by several groups in the department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and is available to other investigators in the community.
Academic crystallographers from Oklahoma can get free access to the laboratory for X-ray data collection. Nonacademic users are welcome to discuss a possible collaboration. For more details, please contact Dr. Blaine Mooers.
The X-ray facility occupies 600 square feet of lab space in the Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center (BRC472). The laboratory houses a modern X-ray generator and data collection system comprised of a Rigaku RU-H3R X-ray generator, Varimax HF optical system, R-AXIS IV image plate system, and an X-stream cold-stream. All the X-ray equipment is from Rigaku-MSC. The R-AXIS IV has an optional helium path for working with large unit cells. Besides the X-ray equipment and computer for controlling data collection, the laboratory includes a dedicated cold room for 4 °C crystallization experiments, microscopes, and the small equipment for freezing, storing and transporting frozen crystals.
The Laboratory is located in the Biomedical Research Center Building on the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
