Abstract
Homobifunctional chemical cross-linking reagents are important tools for fu nctional and structural characterization of proteins. Accurate measures of the lengths of these molecules currently are not available, despite their w idespread use. Stochastic dynamics calculations now provide quantitative me asures of the lengths, and length dispersions, of 32 widely used molecular rulers. Significant differences from published data have been found.
