Abstract

Protein crystals typically deteriorate upon soaking in solutions very different from those used to grow them (the ‘mother liquor’). This is particularly true of solutions containing lower salt concentrations and organic solvents (i.e. DMSO, ethanol). Optimization of the relative humidity environment of the crystals can compensate for these effects and allow recovery of diffraction quality.
