AURELIA is an advanced program for the computer-aided evaluation of two-, three- and four-dimensional NMR spectra of any type of molecule. It can be used for the analysis of spectra of small molecules as well as for evaluation of complicated spectra of biological macromolecules such as proteins. AURELIA is highly interactive and offers a large number of(More)
A computer program (RFAC) has been developed, which allows the automated estimation of residual indices (R-factors) for protein NMR structures and gives a reliable measure for the quality of the structures. The R-factor calculation is based on the comparison of experimental and simulated 1H NOESY NMR spectra. The approach comprises an automatic peak picking(More)
Backbone torsional angles are a characteristic and useful parameter for the description and characterisation of protein structures determined by x-ray crystallography or NMR spectroscopy. For the comparison of an ensemble of three-dimensional structures the calculation of the statistical parameters mean and standard deviation would be very useful. However,(More)
A generally applicable method for the automated classification of 2D NMR peaks has been developed, based on a Bayesian approach coupled to a multivariate linear discriminant analysis of the data. The method can separate true NMR signals from noise signals, solvent stripes and artefact signals. The analysis relies on the assumption that the different signal(More)
A new tool, for the simulation of 15N or 13C edited 3D-NOESY-HSQC spectra using the complete relaxation matrix approach, has been developed and integrated in the program AURELIA. This tool should be particularly useful for the fast and reliable computer assisted assignment of 3D-NOESY-HSQC spectra by comparing back-calculated and experimental spectra in an(More)
Complete sequence-specific assignments of the 1H NMR spectrum of HPr protein from Staphylococcus aureus were obtained by two-dimensional NMR methods. Important secondary structure elements that can be derived from the observed nuclear Overhauser effects are a large antiparallel beta-pleated sheet consisting of four strands, A, B, C, D, a segment SAB(More)
This paper describes the developments, role and contributions of the NMR spectroscopy groups in the Structural Proteomics In Europe (SPINE) consortium. Focusing on the development of high-throughput (HTP) pipelines for NMR structure determinations of proteins, all aspects from sample preparation, data acquisition, data processing, data analysis to structure(More)
One of the major bottlenecks in the determination of proteinstructures by NMR is in the evaluation of the data produced by theexperiments. An important step in this process is assignment, where thepeaks in the spectra are assigned to specific spins within specificresidues. In this paper, we discuss a spin system assignment tool based onpattern recognition(More)
Intact rabbit myosin and two different C-terminal fragments of rabbit muscle light meromyosin (LMM) expressed in Escherichia coli, LMM-30, and LMM-30C', were studied by 1H NMR spectroscopy. X-ray small-angle scattering shows that at high ionic strength two polypeptide chains of LMM-30 (which consists of the C-terminal 262 amino acids of myosin heavy chain)(More)
Strong solvent signals lead to a disappearance of weak protein signals close to the solvent resonance frequency and to base plane variations all over the spectrum. AUREMOL-SSA provides an automated approach for solvent artifact removal from multidimensional NMR protein spectra. Its core algorithm is based on singular spectrum analysis (SSA) in the time(More)
