SEARCH BY CITATION

Keywords:

  • molecular replacement;
  • multi-copy search.

The molecular-replacement method has been extended to a simultaneous search for multiple copies of the macromolecule in the unit cell. The central point of this approach is the construction of a multi-copy search model from the properly oriented monomers using a special translation function. The multi-copy search method has been implemented in the program MOLREP and successfully tested using experimental data.
