[…] Data sets were collected in house using either a Rigaku 007-HF or Rigaku SuperBright FR-E+ X-ray generator with Osmic VariMax HF optics and a Saturn 944 or Saturn 944+ CCD detector. Diffraction images are available through the CSGID web page ( Data were reduced with XDS/XSCALE [] with the Bijvoet pairs unmerged (i.e., Friedel setting at FALSE). Sites were located using either phenix.hyss/phenix.autosol [] or SHELXD []. The anomalous substructure was refined and extended, and phases were estimated using PHASER EP [] from the CCP4 suite [] followed by density improvement in PARROT []. Initial models were built using automated building in BUCCANEER [], followed by model extension/rebuilding in ARP/wARP []. The model was refined using SAD refinement with optimization of the iodide ion occupancy in REFMAC []. Final models were produced after numerous iterative rounds of manual re-building in Coot [] and refinement in REFMAC [] using the merged data (i.e., Friedel setting at TRUE in XSCALE []). The correctness of each structure was examined, validated, and improved using Molprobity [, ]. […]
