Hello everyone,

I have discussed the question what the minimal molecular weight of a
(assumed globular) protein/domain might be to visualise it reliably by
negative staining or rotary shadowing (Pt or W) with a number of people
already, with very different answers.

I am curious at what molecular weight people on this list here are
raising their hopes to see something ...
