A scattering-angle-dependent formula is obtained for estimation of anomalous diffraction signals in Friedel pairs in protein crystals. In addition to the angle dependences of atomic form factor and temperature factor, a correlation form factor is introduced for the first time to take into account anomalous-scattering clusters such as disulfide bonds. Good agreements with experimental observations suggest that such correlated anomalous difference signals may be visible from measurements before a complete structural solution is obtained.
