Title: Megahertz serial crystallography

Abstract

Here, the new European X-ray Free-Electron Laser is the first X-ray free-electron laser capable of delivering X-ray pulses with a megahertz inter-pulse spacing, more than four orders of magnitude higher than previously possible. However, to date, it has been unclear whether it would indeed be possible to measure high-quality diffraction data at megahertz pulse repetition rates. Here, we show that high-quality structures can indeed be obtained using currently available operating conditions at the European XFEL. We present two complete data sets, one from the well-known model system lysozyme and the other from a so far unknown complex of a β-lactamase from K. pneumoniae involved in antibiotic resistance. This result opens up megahertz serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX) as a tool for reliable structure determination, substrate screening and the efficient measurement of the evolution and dynamics of molecular structures using megahertz repetition rate pulses available at this new class of X-ray laser source.

Fig. 1 Fig. 1: Megahertz serial crystallography. Pulses from the European XFEL were focused on the interaction region using a set of Beryllium lenses. Protein crystals in crystallization solution were introduced into the focused XFEL beam using a liquid jet of 1.8 µm diameter moving at speeds between 50m/s and 100m/s. Diffractionmore » from the sample was measured using an AGIPD, which is capable of measuring up to 3520 pulses per second at megahertz frame rates. In-situ jet imaging (inset) showed that the liquid column does explode under the X-ray illumination conditions of this experiment using a jet with a speed of 100m/s, but that the liquid jet recovered in less than 1 μs to deliver fresh sample in time for arrival of the next X-ray pulse. Images and movies of jets at different speeds are included in the supplementary material« less
