Protein SAXS Lab Report

Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) of proteins – and of nanoparticles in general – in solution has proven to be a valuable method for the characterization and parameterization of their size and shape.


The most robust and universal parameter is the radius of gyration Rg, the root-mean-square distance of all electrons within a particle from their common center of gravity, which relates to the size of the particle.
