 Optimize Reagents Optimize – Cryoprotectants Santovac Cryo Oil


  • Oil based cryoprotectant



  • Low viscosity
  • Low surface tension
  • Cryoprotectant for soluble and membrane protein crystals
  • Not miscible with most solvents
  • Non toxic, non penetrating cryoprotectant



Used during cryocrystallography to displace and reduce the amount of water (mother liquor, reagent) on the crystal after the crystal is mounted in a cryoloop. Coating the crystal with oil can minimize evaporation from the crystal and reduce exposure and slow diffusion of air (oxygen) to the crystal.

Santovac Cryo Oil offers low viscosity, incredibly low vapor pressure, low surface tension, excellent chemical inertness and excellent thermal stability.

Dip the mounted crystal into the oil to displace surface water. Or add a small amount of Santovac to the crystallization drop before mounting the crystal. After adding the Santovac, mount the crystal using a Mounted Cryoloop. Withdraw the mounted crystal from the drop and the Santovac will coat the mounted crystal. Cryogenically cool the mounted crystal.

Santovac (Santovac 5) is a five ring polyphenyl ether (PPE) with very low vapor pressure and low reactivity. The oil is highly resistant to oxidation. The only elements in the pure polyphenyl ether are oxygen, hydrogen and carbon.

The fluid is chemically stable, non-corrosive, safe and non-toxic at normal operating temperatures.

Santovac is not miscible with water, paraffin oil, silicon oil, alkanes, or Parabar 10312 (Paratone). Santovac is miscible with acetone. Shelf life 5 years.

Ice Rings 冰环

Got ice rings and want to get rid of them?

While the crystal is in the beam, carefully try the following.

Try annealing the crystal by blocking the stream for a few seconds, allowing the crystal to thaw, then unblock the stream to cool the crystal again.

Try washing the crystal with liquid nitrogen. Using a pipette, carefully aspirate liquid nitrogen into the pipette, then dispense several drops or even a gentle stream over the crystal and mount. A liquid nitrogen wash can also be used to remove creeping ice from caps, pins and loops.



尝试通过阻塞流几秒钟来使晶体退火,让晶体解冻,然后解除阻塞流以再次冷却晶体。 (参考:高分子低温晶体学新技术:高分子晶体退火和低温氦,B. Leif Hansona,Constance A. Schallb 和 Gerard J. Bunick,Journal of Structural Biology

Cryo and detergents 晶体的冷冻和清洁剂

Cryo and detergents 晶体的冷冻和清洁剂

(Be aware of the potential for) detergent concentration mismatch between your mother liquor and the cryosolution. This particularly happens with vapor diffusion setups: there is a delicate balance of “free” detergent in the mother liquor versus the proportion of the detergent which is bound to the protein. Dropping a xtal into the cryosolution shocks the crystal with a bolus of extra free detergent. Hence, and counterintuitively, you may need to reduce the detergent concentration in the cryosolution to keep everything in balance. Try titrating down from 1% to even as low as 0.4% in the cryosolution. Under the conditions you are using the CMC of bOG is suppressed below the usual 0.67% (w/v).

Also, the behavior of many of the alkyl glycoside detergents is very temperature sensitive. So be careful about the temperature of all the solutions you use.

(请注意)母液和冷冻溶液之间的洗涤剂浓度不匹配的可能性。 这尤其发生在蒸汽扩散装置中:母液中的“游离”去污剂与与蛋白质结合的去污剂比例之间存在微妙的平衡。 将 xtal 滴入冷冻溶液中会用一团额外的游离洗涤剂冲击晶体。 因此,与直觉相反,您可能需要降低冷冻溶液中的洗涤剂浓度以保持一切平衡。 尝试在冷冻溶液中从 1% 滴定到甚至低至 0.4%。 在您使用的条件下,bOG 的 CMC 被抑制在通常的 0.67% (w/v) 以下。

此外,许多烷基糖苷去污剂的行为对温度非常敏感。 因此,请注意您使用的所有溶液的温度。

Change the rate of cooling.  改变冷却速度。

a) Accelerate the rate of cooling. The fastest cooling rates have been achieved by blowing off the gas layer on liquid nitrogen during plunge cooling. (Hyperquenching for protein cryocrystallography, M. Warkentin et al, J. Appl. Cryst. (2006). 39, 805-811)

b) Slow the rate of cooling. Perhaps better suited to crystals with smaller solvent channels. The key to successful slow cooling of protein crystals is to carefully and completely remove all of the solvent from the surface of the crystal using oil such as Paratone-N, Perfluoropolyether, Mineral, Silicon, NVH or other. Remove ALL of the liquid from the surface of the crystals when using oil. (Slow cooling and temperature-controlled protein crystallography, Warkentin et al 10.1007/s10969-009-9074-y and Slow cooling of protein crystals, Warkentin et al, Volume 42, Part 5, Pages 944-952, October 2009) For more information visit http://hamptonresearch.com/menus.aspx?id=3&sid=138

a) 加快冷却速度。 通过在骤冷期间吹掉液氮上的气体层,可以实现最快的冷却速度。 (蛋白质低温晶体学的超淬灭,M. Warkentin 等人,J. Appl. Cryst. (2006). 39, 805-811)

b) 减慢冷却速度。 也许更适合溶剂通道较小的晶体。 成功缓慢冷却蛋白质晶体的关键是使用 Paratone-N、全氟聚醚、矿物、硅、NVH 或其他油等仔细彻底地去除晶体表面的所有溶剂。 使用油时,除去晶体表面的所有液体。 (缓慢冷却和温度控制的蛋白质晶体学,Warkentin 等人 10.1007/s10969-009-9074-y 和蛋白质晶体的缓慢冷却,Warkentin 等人,第 42 卷,第 5 部分,第 944-952 页,2009 年 10 月) 访问 http://hamptonresearch.com/menus.aspx?id=3&sid=138

Using salt as a crystallization reagent? Many salts are cryosalts, including malonate, formate, citrate, tartrate, acetate, Tacsimate and other organic acids, ammonium sulfate (>3.5 M), lithium sulfate, lithium chloride and other alkylammonium salts. For cryo try increasing your salt concentration by 20%. (Cryosalts: suppression of ice formation in macromolecular crystallography, K. A. Rubinson et al, Acta Cryst. (2000). D56, 996-1001 doi:10.1107/S0907444900007587.

Try the identical cryo procedure again with another crystal.

Vary the time and temperature of the crystal handling steps.

Check the liquid nitrogen level in your dewar and maintain a consistent level, day to day, week to week, month to month, year to year.

Try annealing. (Macromolecular crystal annealing: Techniques and cases studies. Bunick et al, The Rigaku Journal Vol. 15/ number 2/ 1998 and Macromolecular crystal annealing: overcoming increased mosaicity associated with cryocrystallography, Harp et al. (1998). Acta Cryst. D54, 622-8

使用盐作为结晶试剂?很多盐是冰晶盐,包括丙二酸盐、甲酸盐、柠檬酸盐、酒石酸盐、乙酸盐、Tacsimate和其他有机酸、硫酸铵(>3.5 M)、硫酸锂、氯化锂和其他烷基铵盐。对于冷冻,尝试将盐浓度提高 20%。 (冷冻盐:大分子晶体学中冰形成的抑制,K. A. Rubinson 等人,Acta Cryst. (2000). D56, 996-1001 doi:10.1107/S0907444900007587。




尝试退火。 (高分子晶体退火:技术和案例研究。Bunick 等人,理学杂志第 15 卷/第 2 期/1998 年和高分子晶体退火:克服与低温晶体学相关的镶嵌性增加,Harp 等人(1998 年)。Acta Cryst. D54, 622-8

Match the osmotic pressure of your cryoprotectant to the osmotic pressure of the reagent producing the crystal. Crystallization reagents with lower salt concentrations require a higher percentage of cryoprotectant for cryo protection than crystallization reagents with higher salt solutions (Cool data: quantity and quality. Elspeth Garman. Acta Cryst. (1999). D55, 1641-1653.). Osmolality tables (Weast, R. C. (1988-1989). Editor. Handbook of Chemistry; Physics, 69th ed. Boca Raton, Florida: CRC Press) can be used to estimate the osmolality of reagents. Another trick is to slowly concentrate a drop of the mother liquor by leaving the drop open to air and allowing the drop to slowly dry down, checking the mother liquor for clear glass freeze every few minutes. If you do not have X-rays to check for clear glass freeze, you can guesstimate by carefully placing the dewar under a dissecting microscope with overhead lighting. Focus on the surface of the liquid nitrogen, and bring the cooled loop into view just above the surface of the liquid nitrogen, where it is cold enough for guesstimate freezing.

使冷冻保护剂的渗透压与产生晶体的试剂的渗透压相匹配。与具有较高盐溶液的结晶试剂相比,具有较低盐浓度的结晶试剂需要更高百分比的冷冻保护剂来进行冷冻保护(酷数据:数量和质量。Elspeth Garman. Acta Cryst. (1999). D55, 1641-1653.)。渗透压表 (West, R. C. (1988-1989). Editor. Handbook of Chemistry; Physics, 69th ed. Boca Raton, Florida: CRC Press) 可用于估计试剂的渗透压。另一个技巧是慢慢浓缩一滴母液,方法是让一滴母液对空气敞开,让液滴慢慢干燥,每隔几分钟检查一次母液是否有透明玻璃结冰。如果您没有 X 射线来检查透明玻璃是否冻结,您可以通过将杜瓦瓶小心地放在带顶灯的解剖显微镜下进行猜测。专注于液氮的表面,将冷却回路置于液氮表面上方的视野中,那里足够冷,可以推测冻结。

Try high pressure cooling. (High-pressure cooling of protein crystals without cryoprotectants, Kim et al, Acta Cryst. (2005). D61, 881–890)

Cryoprotection of delicate crystals – Artem Evdokimov’s humble recipe.

Two words. Liquid propane.

Roger S. Rowlett’s Cryoprotectant Strategy
1. Transfer crystals to mother liquor plus 30%v/v glycerol or ethylene glycol (sometimes lower depending on crystallization
2. Transfer crystals to mother liquor plus 30%w/v glucose (or try sequential soaks in mother liquor plus 15%w/v and then 30%w/v glucose. Just a few seconds or minutes is usually enough). Glucose or other sugars often work when glycerol or ethylene glycol fails.
3. Try the “no-fail” in situ cryo method, which is a gradual buildup of cryoprotectant. This method is especially appropriate for crystals that cannot tolerate direct transfer to cryoprotectant solution, or for crystals that are especially sensitive to concentration changes in the mother liquor driven by drop evaporation. In our laboratory this method is routinely used with success on otherwise very sensitive crystals. This particular method is adapted for hanging drop crystallization. Ligands can be soaked in at the same time as cryopreservation if included in the cryoprotectant solution at 125% of the final, desired concentration.
a) Prepare a solution of artificial mother liquor plus 30% w/v glucose (40% v/v glycerol or another cryoprotectant can be substituted)
b) Remove a coverslip containing a drop with crystals to be cryoprotected and add 0.25 drop volume (DV) of cryoprotectant solutions (e.g. for a 4 uL drop add 1 uL of cryoprotectant solution). Replace coverslip on well and let stand for 5 minutes. Examine the crystals for cracking and/or dissolution.
c) Repeat the previous step with the following additional cryoprotectant additions: 0.25 DV, 0.50 DV, 1.00 DV, 2.00 DV. After each addition replace the coverslip over the well and let stand for 5 minutes. Examine crystals for cracking and/or dissolution.
d) After the last addition and 5 minute incubation, remove coverlip, fish out crystals with mounting loops and freeze directly in liquid nitrogen. The final glucose concentration will be 24%, sufficient to protect most crystallization solutions from ice formation upon freezing in liquid nitrogen.
This is very gentle, and often works when #1 and #2 does not, but in our hands nearly always increases mosaicity. (But mosaic is better than no diffraction.)
4. Try dragging crystals though Paratone-N to remove surface water from the crystal. This actually nearly always works for us, but is more fussy than #1 or #2, and it is easier to damage crystals during manipulation because of the viscosity of the oil.
I normally plunge protected crystals into liquid nitrogen after mounting.
Ice rings are a good indication of poor cryoprotection, but lack of diffraction could just be your crystals, too. For our latest dataset, we just sorted through 38 crystals until we found a good one. The key, as it turned out, is that all of our beautiful large crystals were apparently difficult to visualize disordered stacks of plates (we didn’t notice this until some fractured during cryo-soaks) whereas some of the small crystals were actually single crystals. We selected a decently diffracting small one and took loooooooooooong frames to get a good data set. (Roger S. Rowlett, Professor, Colgate University Presidential Scholar, Department of Chemistry, Colgate University, NY, USA)

Dig around in the cryoprotectant database for ideas. http://idb.exst.jaxa.jp/db_data/protein/search-e.php

Try 10% glycerol. (Jim Pflugrath)

Try 10 to 20% 2,3-butanediol. It can also reduce mosaicity. Try a quick dip, 30 to 60 seconds.

Fine tune the cryo concentration by screening 2.5% concentration increments, dipping a loop in the cryo buffer, freezing it and collecting X-Ray diffraction data to find the minimum concentration required that produces a clear glass and no ice rings.

Try dragging the crystal through a 1:1 mix of Paratone-N and Mineral oil until most or all the mother liquor from surrounding the crystal has been removed. (David Briggs)

Look back in your screen plates for a different crystal in different reagent, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00 and start over at the top of this tip.

Roger S. Rowlett 的冷冻保护剂策略
1. 将晶体转移到母液中,加入 30%v/v 甘油或乙二醇(有时根据结晶情况降低
2. 将晶体转移到加 30%w/v 葡萄糖的母液中(或尝试在母液中依次浸泡加 15%w/v 和 30%w/v 葡萄糖。通常只需几秒钟或几分钟就足够了)。当甘油或乙二醇失效时,葡萄糖或其他糖通常会起作用。
3. 尝试“不失败”的原位冷冻方法,这是一种逐渐积累的冷冻保护剂。这种方法特别适用于不能直接转移到冷冻保护剂溶液中的晶体,或对液滴蒸发驱动的母液浓度变化特别敏感的晶体。在我们的实验室中,这种方法通常成功地用于其他非常敏感的晶体。这种特殊的方法适用于悬滴结晶。如果在冷冻保护剂溶液中以最终所需浓度的 125% 包含配体,则可以在冷冻保存的同时浸泡配体。
a) 制备人工母液加 30% w/v 葡萄糖的溶液(可以用 40% v/v 甘油或其他冷冻保护剂代替)
b) 取出含有一滴需要冷冻保护的晶体的盖玻片,加入 0.25 滴体积 (DV) 的冷冻保护剂溶液(例如,对于 4 uL 的液滴,加入 1 uL 的冷冻保护剂溶液)。盖好盖玻片,静置 5 分钟。检查晶体是否破裂和/或溶解。
c) 重复上一步,添加以下额外的冷冻保护剂:0.25 DV、0.50 DV、1.00 DV、2.00 DV。每次添加后,更换孔上的盖玻片并静置 5 分钟。检查晶体是否开裂和/或溶解。
d) 最后一次添加和孵育 5 分钟后,取下盖玻片,用固定环捞出晶体并直接在液氮中冷冻。最终的葡萄糖浓度为 24%,足以保护大多数结晶溶液在液氮中冷冻时不会结冰。
这是非常温和的,并且通常在 #1 和 #2 不起作用时起作用,但在我们手中几乎总是会增加镶嵌性。 (但马赛克总比没有衍射要好。)
4. 尝试通过 Paratone-N 拖动晶体以去除晶体中的表面水。这实际上几乎总是对我们有用,但比 #1 或 #2 更挑剔,并且由于油的粘度,在操作过程中更容易损坏晶体。
冰环是低温保护不良的一个很好的迹象,但缺乏衍射也可能只是你的晶体。对于我们最新的数据集,我们只是对 38 个晶体进行分类,直到找到一个好的晶体。事实证明,关键是我们所有美丽的大晶体显然很难看到无序的叠层板(直到在低温浸泡过程中有些破裂我们才注意到这一点),而一些小晶体实际上是单晶.我们选择了一个像样的衍射小帧,并用了 looooooooooooong 帧来获得一个好的数据集。 (Roger S. Rowlett,美国纽约州科尔盖特大学化学系科尔盖特大学校长学者教授)

在冷冻保护剂数据库中四处寻找想法。 http://idb.exst.jaxa.jp/db_data/protein/search-e.php

试试 10% 的甘油。 (吉姆·普弗拉格拉斯)

尝试使用 10 至 20% 的 2,3-丁二醇。它还可以减少镶嵌性。尝试快速浸泡 30 到 60 秒。

通过筛选 2.5% 的浓度增量来微调低温浓度,在低温缓冲液中浸一个循环,将其冷冻并收集 X 射线衍射数据,以找到产生透明玻璃和无冰环所需的最低浓度。

尝试将晶体拖过 Paratone-N 和矿物油的 1:1 混合物,直到去除晶体周围的大部分或全部母液。 (大卫布里格斯)

A is for Aggregation 阻止包括蛋白质、肽和核酸在内的生物大分子的结晶

A is for Aggregation  A 代表聚合

Aggregation can be a deterrent to the crystallization of biological macromolecules including proteins, peptides, and nucleic acids. The presence of sample aggregation can be detected by either dynamic light scattering or native gel electrophoresis. Aggregation might be caused by hydrophobic patches on the surface of the sample, differently charged isoforms, differently phosphorylated isoforms, mixtures of methylated and non-methylated samples, glycosylation, as well as electrostatic interactions. Aggregation can be due to autologous aggregation where the protein is aggregating with itself or heterologous contamination where the sample is aggregating with other proteins. In the case of heterologous contamination, further purification of the sample should be seriously considered. In the case of autologous aggregation that precludes crystallization one might consider:

Using molecular biology to manipulate intra and inter molecule interactions by modifying the sample sequence (alter, add, or delete residues).

Use chemical additives to manipulate sample-sample and sample solvent interactions.
Chaotropes (urea, guanidine hydrochloride, hydrochloric acid, etc)
Electrostatic agents
Alcohols (isopropanol, methanol, ethanol, etc)
Salts (sodium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium fluoride, etc)
Polyols (glycerol, PEG 400, etc)
Ligands, inhibitors, co-factors, and metals
Use temperature to prevent aggregation (0°C and 60°C)
Consider a fusion protein
Remove C-terminus or N-terminus
Truncate domains
Remove His-tag

In some cases aggregates can be removed by centrifugation or filtration.

In some cases the aggregates can be removed by mixing the sample with the crystallization reagent, allowing the sample to incubate for 15 minutes, centrifuging the sample/reagent mixture, removing the precipitate and setting the drop with the supernatant.



多元醇(甘油、PEG 400 等)
使用温度防止聚集(0°C 和 60°C)
移除 C 端或 N 端
删除 His 标签


在某些情况下,可以通过将样品与结晶试剂混合、让样品孵育 15 分钟、离心样品/试剂混合物、去除沉淀物并用上清液放置液滴来去除聚集体。

Crystal Screen as an additive screen 附加屏幕

Crystal Screen as an additive screen 附加屏幕

Although Hampton Research does offer a specifically formulated Additive Screen (HR2-428), here is a tip when one already has a sparse matrix screen or two laying about the lab. When screening additives try adding 50 microliters of each Crystal Screen reagent to 950 microliters the “best” crystallization conditions thus far in order to see if any of the reagents in Crystal Screen might serve as good additives. Crystal Screen 2 is an especially good kit for this technique since Crystal Screen 2 contains numerous divalent cations, Jeffamine® Reagent, and a few other “novel” agents.

The Sodium malonate offered by Hampton Research is Malonic acid (CAS Number 141-82-2) titrated to pH 4.0-8.0 using Sodium hydroxide as described in the publication “A comparison of salts for the crystallization of macromolecules. Alexander McPherson. Protein Science (2001), 10:418-422.”. In this same publication, Sodium malonate was reported to be more successful than any other salt, resulting in the crystallization of 19 of the 23 macromolecules, almost twice as effective as the next most successful salt, which was a draw between sodium acetate, sodium tartrate, sodium formate, and ammonium sulfate. The high success rate of Sodium malonate in producing crystals was even more impressive when an overall unique success rate with individual macromolecules was considered.

The use of Sodium malonate in place of Ammonium sulfate has been reported in one instance to improve the reproducibility of crystals and improve resistance to physicochemical shocks. Sodium malonate also acted as a good cryoprotectant (Xing and Xu 2003).

One may combine the four different sodium malonate stocks to create a pH versus sodium malonate concentration grid for screening or optimization. Refer to the pH/Dilution Table for Sodium malonate.

Based on the structure of malonic acid titrated with sodium hydroxide, there are no chiral carbons so it is not characterized as having enantiomeric structures, such as D or L.

Hampton研究提供的丙二酸钠是苹果酸(化学文摘社编号141-82-2),使用氢氧化钠滴定至pH4.0-8.0,载于出版物“大分子结晶盐的比较”,Alexander McPherson,“蛋白质科学”(2001),10:418-422。在同一份出版物中,据报道,丙二酸钠比任何其他盐都更成功,导致23种大分子中的19种结晶,几乎是第二种最成功的盐的两倍,即乙酸钠、酒石酸钠、甲酸钠和硫酸铵之间的结晶。当考虑到单个大分子的整体独特成功率时,丙二酸钠在晶体生产中的高成功率更令人印象深刻。
