Abstract [en]

Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill (CPMG) relaxation dispersion NMR experiments are extremely powerful for characterizing millisecond time-scale conformational exchange processes in biomolecules. A large number of such CPMG experiments have now emerged for measuring protein backbone chemical shifts of sparsely populated (> 0.5%), excited state conformers that cannot be directly detected in NMR spectra and that are invisible to most other biophysical methods as well. A notable deficiency is, however, the absence of CPMG experiments for measurement of H-1(alpha) and C-13(alpha) chemical shifts of glycine residues in the excited state that reflects the fact that in this case the H-1(alpha), C-13(alpha) spins form a three-spin system that is more complex than the AX H-1(alpha)-C-13(alpha) spin systems in the other amino acids. Here pulse sequences for recording H-1(alpha) and C-13(alpha) CPMG relaxation dispersion profiles derived from glycine residues are presented that provide information from which H-1(alpha), C-13(alpha) chemical shifts can be obtained. The utility of these experiments is demonstrated by an application to a mutant of T4 lysozyme that undergoes a millisecond time-scale exchange process facilitating the binding of hydrophobic ligands to an internal cavity in the protein.
