The solution structure of recombinant human interferon alpha-2a (Roferon-A) has been determined by multidimensional heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy. The calculations using simulated annealing produced a family of 24 convergent structures which satisfy the experimental restraints comprising 1541 NOE-derived inter-proton distances, 187 dihedral restraints, 66(More)
For rapid endocytosis lysosomal acid phosphatase requires a Tyr-containing signal in its cytoplasmic domain, as do cell surface receptors mediating endocytosis and clustering in coated pits. To determine the structure of the internalization signal an 18 amino acid peptide representing the cytoplasmic tail of lysosomal acid phosphatase was analyzed by(More)
Random screening provided no suitable lead structures in a search for novel inhibitors of the bacterial enzyme DNA gyrase. Therefore, an alternative approach had to be developed. Relying on the detailed 3D structural information of the targeted ATP binding site, our approach combines as key techniques (1) an in silico screening for potential low molecular(More)
The complete resonance assignment of the ColE1 rop (rom) protein at pH 2.3 was obtained by two-dimensional (2D) proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H NMR) at 500 and 600 MHz using through-bond and through-space connectivities. Sequential assignments and elements of regular secondary structure were deduced by analysis of nuclear Overhauser(More)
The solution structure of the SH3 domain of human p56 Lck tyrosine kinase (Lck-SH3) has been determined by multidimensional heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy. The structure was calculated from a total of 935 experimental restraints comprising 785 distance restraints derived from 1017 assigned NOE cross peaks and 150 dihedral angel restraints derived from 160(More)
The snake venom protein flavoridin, a polypeptide of 70 amino acid residues, is a potent inhibitor of blood platelet aggregation. It binds to cell-surface integrin receptors such as the fibrinogen receptor glycoprotein IIb/IIIa. The inhibitory properties of flavoridin have been attributed to the tripeptide segment Arg-Gly-Asp (residues 49 to 51). This paper(More)
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes (Ubc) are involved in ubiquitination of proteins in the protein degradation pathway of eukaryotic cells. Ubc transfers the ubiquitin (Ub) molecules to target proteins by forming a thioester bond between their active site cysteine residue and the C-terminal glycine residue of ubiquitin. Here, we report on the NMR assignment and(More)
This paper describes a new method for the elucidation of the disulphide bonding pattern in a protein from an initial set of unrefined nuclear magnetic resonance solution structures. The use of both local and global proton-proton nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE) distance information for the identification of the disulphide bridge network in cysteine-rich(More)
In this technical note we describe the setup and application of automated sample preparation and usage of flow-through NMR equipment for the characterization of ligand binding on proteins. In addition, we focus on the perspectives of automated analysis of 2D HSQC spectra to identify changes in patterns indicative for ligand binding or changes of sample(More)
Calbindin D28k, a member of the troponin C superfamily of calcium-binding proteins, contains six putative EF hand domains but binds only four calcium-atoms: one at a binding site of very high affinity and three calcium-atoms at binding sites of lower affinity. The high-affinity site could be located within domain I while domains III, IV, and V bind calcium(More)
