Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill (CPMG) relaxation dispersion nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has emerged as a powerful method for quantifying chemical shifts of excited protein states. For many applications of the technique that involve the measurement of relaxation rates of carbon magnetization it is necessary to prepare samples with isolated C-13 spins so that experiments do not suffer from magnetization transfer between coupled carbon spins that would otherwise occur during the CPMG pulse train. In the case of (CO)-C-13 experiments however the large separation between (CO)-C-13 and C-13(alpha) chemical shifts offers hope that robust (CO)-C-13 dispersion profiles can be recorded on uniformly C-13 labeled samples, leading to the extraction of accurate (CO)-C-13 chemical shifts of the invisible, excited state. Here we compare such chemical shifts recorded on samples that are selectively labeled, prepared using [1-C-13]-pyruvate and (NaHCO3,)-C-13 or uniformly labeled, generated from C-13-glucose. Very similar (CO)-C-13 chemical shifts are obtained from analysis of CPMG experiments recorded on both samples, and comparison with chemical shifts measured using a second approach establishes that the shifts measured from relaxation dispersion are very accurate.
