Engineering of a bis-chelator motif into a protein α-helix for rigid lanthanide binding and paramagnetic NMR spectroscopy.


Attachment of two nitrilotriacetic acid-based ligands to a protein α-helix in an i, i + 4 configuration produces an octadentate chelating motif that is able to bind paramagnetic lanthanide ions rigidly and with high affinity, leading to large pseudocontact shifts and residual dipolar couplings in the NMR spectrum.
