Deuterium nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (2H NMR) has been employed to investigate the interaction of lung type II myosin protein with neutral bilayers containing dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) as the only constituent and mixed bilayers containing the negatively charged lipid dimyristoylphosphatidylglycerol (DMPG). DMPC was deuterated at its headgroup by substituting the four protons at the alpha- and beta-positions (DMPC-d4) and the nine protons at the gamma-position (DMPC-d9… CONTINUE READING
