Why?

We actually do not have a crystallographic structure of the mercuric ion Hg(II)-dependent transcription regulator, MerR. We only have the low-resolution envelope shape from small-angle X-ray scattering. However, combining SAXS and
molecular dynamics simulations we were able to refine this structure and visualize the opening-and-closing principal dynamics of the Hg(II)-bound MerR.—Hao-Bo Guo
