The advent of Free Electron Lasers (FELs) opened up the way for an unprecedented, wide class of experiments exploiting the peculiar features of these radiation sources. Key elements of FEL beams are the high peak brilliance, the short pulse duration, which is of the order of tens of femtoseconds, and the high degree of coherence of the radiation.

In this talk I will present a first X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy study of the interactions of Zn with human BST2/tetherin and SARS- CoV-2 orf7a proteins as well as with some of their complexes. The analysis of the XANES region of the measured spectra shows that Zn can bind to BST2, as well as to orf7a and that BST2-orf7a complexes get formed. These structural information confirm the...
