I am new in the cryoSparc program and slowly learn the software to treat the membrane protein datasets. Thanks so much for your suggestions and ideals in advance. I have one membrane protein (38KDa) with Fab complex. so we have be able to pickup the particle including Fab complex but at the same time we throw_away a lot of particles for micelle without Fab. Some particle have bad Fab and micelle connection, which we also throw away. now the resolution is around 4.7-5A after refinement but the helix-TM isn’t good and a lot of micelle density.
questions: 1) how can I remove those micelle density so that I can see the helix-TM density clear?
2) since I already know the Antibody structure and TM structure, I don’t care about Fab structure how to interact with TM-micelle. Can I only try to pickup the TM-micelle particle (not pickup the TM-micelle with Fab) so that I can keep more particles? How can I do that (mask specific area of TM-micelle)?
3) if I knew the Antibody structure and TM structure, is the way that I can use this model to improve the cryo-EM density, which is very model bias, but I just want to quickly see the density and model fit.
