We have coupled 2D-NMR and infusion FT-ICR-MS with computer-assisted assignment to profile 13C-isotopologues of glycerophospholipids (GPL) directly in crude cell extracts, resulting in very high information throughput of >3000 isobaric molecules in a few minutes. A mass accuracy of better than 1 ppm combined with a resolution of 100,000 at the measured m/z(More)
We present a set of utilities and graphical user interface (GUI) tools for evaluating the quality of protein resonance assignments. The Assignment Validation Software (AVS) suite, together with new GUI features in the AutoAssign software package, provides a set of reports and graphs for validating protein resonance assignment data before its use in(More)
Recent developments provide automated analysis of NMR assignments and three-dimensional (3D) structures of proteins. These approaches are generally applicable to proteins ranging from about 50 to 150 amino acids. In this chapter, we summarize progress by the Northeast Structural Genomics Consortium in standardizing the NMR data collection process for(More)
Although a significant number of proteins include bound metals as part of their structure, the identification of amino acid residues coordinated to non-paramagnetic metals by NMR remains a challenge. Metal ligands can stabilize the native structure and/or play critical catalytic roles in the underlying biochemistry. An atom's chemical shift is exquisitely(More)
A suite of reduced-dimensionality (13)C,(15)N,(1)H-triple-resonance NMR experiments is presented for rapid and complete protein resonance assignment. Even when using short measurement times, these experiments allow one to retain the high spectral resolution required for efficient automated analysis. "Sampling limited" and "sensitivity limited" data(More)
Advances in analytical methodologies, principally nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS), during the last decade have made large-scale analysis of the human metabolome a reality. This is leading to the reawakening of the importance of metabolism in human diseases, particularly cancer. The metabolome is the functional(More)
Stable isotope tracing with ultra-high resolution Fourier transform-ion cyclotron resonance-mass spectrometry (FT-ICR-MS) can provide simultaneous determination of hundreds to thousands of metabolite isotopologue species without the need for chromatographic separation. Therefore, this experimental metabolomics methodology may allow the tracing of metabolic(More)
A very general procedure entitled complete relaxation and conformational exchange matrix (CORCEMA) analysis has been developed to analyze the 2D-NOESY spectra of interacting systems undergoing multistate conformational exchange. This is an extension of earlier work from this laboratory on the methodological treatment of multistate conformational exchange(More)
