To characterize the structure of dynamic protein systems, such as partly disordered protein complexes, we propose a novel approach that relies on a combination of site-directed spin-labeled electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy and modeling of local rotation conformational spaces. We applied this approach to the intrinsically disordered C-terminal(More)
The topology of the long N-terminal domain (approximately 100 amino-acid residues) of the photosynthetic Lhc CP29 was studied using electron spin resonance. Wild-type protein containing a single cysteine at position 108 and nine single-cysteine mutants were produced, allowing to label different parts of the domain with a nitroxide spin label. In all cases,(More)
Site-directed spin-labeling electron spin resonance (SDSL-ESR) is a promising tool for membrane protein structure determination. Here we propose a novel way to translate the local structural constraints gained by SDSL-ESR data into a low-resolution structure of a protein by simulating the restrictions of the local conformational spaces of the spin label(More)
As proteins are key molecules in living cells, knowledge about their structure can provide important insights and applications in science, biotechnology, and medicine. However, many protein structures are still a big challenge for existing high-resolution structure-determination methods, as can be seen in the number of protein structures published in the(More)
Complexity of biological systems is one of the toughest problems for any experimental technique. Complex biochemical composition and a variety of biophysical interactions governing the evolution of a state of a biological system imply that the experimental response of the system would be superimposed of many different responses. To obtain a reliable(More)
