Dear all, I have a 17 KDa protein that gives crystals in a condition that has 0.1M bis-tris pH 6.5. The crystals are thin needle clusters and do not diffract. I have tried additives, but they haven't improved the crystals. I intend to vary the pH of the condition. My questions are- 1. should the buffer be kept the same or can it also be changed (as long as the desired pH is within the range of both the buffers)? 2. in case of a different buffer, should its molarity be the same as that of the original one in the crystallization condition?
