Cytochrome f (Cyt f) and plastocyanin (Pc) form a highly transient complex as part of the photosynthetic redox chain. The complex from Nostoc sp. PCC 7119 was studied by NMR relaxation spectroscopy with the aim of determining the orientation of Pc relative to Cyt f. Chemical-shift-perturbation analysis showed that the presence of spin labels on the surface(More)
The amyloid β (A β) peptide is important in the context of Alzheimer's disease, since it is one of the major components of the fibrils that constitute amyloid plaques. Agents that can influence fibril formation are important, and of those, membrane mimics are particularly relevant, because the hydrophobic part of A β suggests a possible membrane activity of(More)
For 3D-structure determination in biophysical systems EPR is rapidly gaining ground. Proteins labeled specifically with two nitroxide spin labels can be prepared, and several EPR methods are available for distance determination, which makes it possible to determine distance constraints. However, such methods require frozen solutions, potentially causing(More)
Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and, more recently, solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) have been employed to study photosynthetic processes, primarily related to the light-induced charge separation. Information obtained on the electronic structure, the relative orientation of the cofactors, and the changes in structure during these reactions(More)
