Thanks so much Pavel for the very rapid response! One more thing, it is a disulfide linked DTT so do I do anything special to ensure that all the sulfur atoms (4 in total - two in one unit cell - one each from the cys and dtt and two in the other unit cell) stay in close enough contact for a covalent bond and not move due to non-bonded contact distance restraints?

So, create a CIF file for DTT (if you really need it - I thought it is standard thing and might be already in the library) and run the refinement following the tips in the link above.

Since part of this molecule sits on across the two-fold (special position) I will specify the occupancy as 0.5. I am hoping to get some information on how easy (or how difficult) it is to specify this arrangement in Phenix for refinement since it is covalent and sitting across a crystallographic two-fold (and presumably stabilizing the lattice). Will ReadySet build the appropriate CIF file if I build the DTT into the density and give it a 0.5 occupancy?
