Abstract

The National Center for Small-Angle Scattering Research is a user-dedicated facility supported by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy under an interagency agreement. The two main facilities available to users are the NSF constructed 30-m small-angle neutron scattering instrument (SANS) and the 10-m DOE constructed small-angle x-ray scattering camera (SAXS). Test measurements carried out on ATPase in H2O and in D2O buffer indicate that the SANS facility is capable of providing meaningful data on a wide variety of biological systems. Details of work carried out on the instrument by Überbacher, Olins, and Bunick, on the binding of HMG proteins to nucleosomes, are presented in a separate poster. (Research sponsored by the National Science Foundation under interagency agreement No. 40-637-77 under Union Carbide Corporation contract W-7405-ENG-26 with the U.S. Department of Energy.)
