Techniques used to determine Hemoglobin structure?

Post by msrowe » Tue Sep 11, 2007 12:31 am

Which of these 5 techniques would let me determine the structure of Hemoglobin?

1. NMR

2Nucleic acid sequencing

3. X ray crystallography

4. Western blotting

5 Flourescence mircroscopy

Thanks for the input.

what would nucleic acid sequencing have to do with proteins?

look up what each of them means on wikipedia and then answering it will be a breeze. Hint: you need to determine the 3D structure, the aminoacid sequence is not enough
