Four novel 5D (HACA(N)CONH, HNCOCACB, (HACA)CON(CA)CONH, (H)NCO(NCA)CONH), and one 6D ((H)NCO(N)CACONH) NMR pulse sequences are proposed. The new experiments employ non-uniform sampling that enables achieving high resolution in indirectly detected dimensions. The experiments facilitate resonance assignment of intrinsically disordered proteins. The novel(More)
The development of non-uniform sampling (NUS) strategies permits to obtain high-dimensional spectra with increased resolution in significantly reduced experimental time. We extended a previously proposed signal separation algorithm (SSA) to process sparse four-dimensional NMR data. It is employed for two experiments carried out for a partially unstructured(More)
A strategy for complete backbone and side-chain resonance assignment of disordered proteins with highly repetitive sequence is presented. The protocol is based on three resolution-enhanced NMR experiments: 5D HN(CA)CONH provides sequential connectivity, 5D HabCabCONH is utilized to identify amino acid types, and 5D HC(CC-TOCSY)CONH is used to assign the(More)
A new, simple procedure is proposed which enables acquisition of two or more chemical shifts encoded in a common dimension simultaneously in quadrature. For n chemical shifts projected in a single dimension, the expected effect is obtained by interleaved acquisition and appropriate combination of 2(n) data sets per increment of respective evolution time.(More)
An ultra-high-resolution NMR experiment for the measurement of intraresidue (1)H(i)-(15)N(i)-(13)C'(i) dipolar-chemical shift anisotropy relaxation interference is employed to extract information about local backbone geometries in intrinsically disordered proteins. The study of tumor suppressor BASP1 revealed a population shift of β-turn geometries at low(More)
Pulsed gradient spin echo (PGSE) is a well-known NMR technique for determining diffusion coefficients. Various signal processing techniques have been introduced to solve the task, which is especially challenging when the decay is multiexponential with an unknown number of components. Here, we introduce a new method for the processing of such types of(More)
Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) have recently attracted much interest, due to their role in many biological processes, including signaling and regulation mechanisms. High-dimensional (13)C direct-detected NMR experiments have proven exceptionally useful in case of IDPs, providing spectra with superior peak dispersion. Here, two such novel(More)
A through bond, C4 0 /H4 0 selective, ''out and stay'' type 4D HC(P)CH experiment is introduced which provides sequential connectivity via H4 0 (i) –C4 0 (i) –C4 0 (i-1) – H4 0 (i-1) correlations. The 31 P dimension (used in the conventional 3D HCP experiment) is replaced with evolution of better dispersed C4 0 dimension. The experiment fully utilizes 13(More)
A band-selective aromatic-aliphatic C,C-edited four-dimensional NOESY experiment is proposed here. Its key advantage is the absence of auto-correlation signals which makes it very attractive for joint use with non-uniform sampling. It is demonstrated here that the sensitivity of the experiment is not significantly affected by utilization of selective pulses(More)
The neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL, also known as LCN2) and its cellular receptor (LCN2-R, SLC22A17) are involved in many physiological and pathological processes such as cell differentiation, apoptosis, and inflammation. These pleiotropic functions mainly rely on NGAL's siderophore-mediated iron transport properties. However, the(More)
