RefDB is a secondary database of reference-corrected protein chemical shifts derived from the BioMagResBank (BMRB). The database was assembled by using a recently developed program (SHIFTX) to predict protein 1H, 13C and 15N chemical shifts from X-ray or NMR coordinate data of previously assigned proteins. The predicted shifts were then compared with the corresponding observed shifts and a variety of statistical evaluations performed. In this way, potential mis-assignments, typographical errors… 

A probabilistic approach for validating protein NMR chemical shift assignments

A new structure-independent protocol is presented, which is based on using residue-specific and secondary structure-specific chemical shift distributions calculated over small residue fragments to identify mis-assigned resonances and is able to identify and re-reference mis-referenced chemical shift assignments.

Validation of archived chemical shifts through atomic coordinates

A new method to correct and validate protein chemical shift values in relation to their 3D structure coordinates is described and an online resource with chemical shift, atom exposure, and secondary structure information for all relevant BMRB entries is provided.

A simple method to adjust inconsistently referenced 13C and 15N chemical shift assignments of proteins

This protocol appears to improve the accuracy of chemical shift-derived secondary structural identification, and has been formally incorporated into a computer program called PSSI (http//

Conformationally selective multidimensional chemical shift ranges in proteins from a PACSY database purged using intrinsic quality criteria

These chemical shift ranges, which may be defined at any statistical threshold, can be used for amino-acid type assignment and secondary-structure analysis of chemical shifts from intra-residue cross peaks by inspection or by using a provided command-line Python script, which should be useful in protein structure determination.

Automatic 13C chemical shift reference correction for unassigned protein NMR spectra

These new methods will allow non-NMR experts to detect and correct 13C referencing error at critical early data analysis steps, lowering the bar of NMR expertise required for effective protein NMR analysis.

Empirical correlation between protein backbone 15N and 13C secondary chemical shifts and its application to nitrogen chemical shift re-referencing

A way of extending the LACS approach to 15N NMR data from proteins, so as to enable the detection and correction of inconsistencies in chemical shift referencing for this nucleus, is reported, finding that a backbone 15N chemical shift provides a better indicator of the conformation of the preceding residue than of the residue itself.

Computational Assignment of Chemical Shifts for Protein Residues

Chemshift is presented, a module for handling chemical shift assignments, implemented in the protein structure determination program Phaistos, which treats both the assignment of experimental data, as well as the weighing compared to physical terms, in a probabilistic framework where no data is discarded.

CS23D: a web server for rapid protein structure generation using NMR chemical shifts and sequence data

Tests conducted on more than 100 proteins from the BioMagResBank indicate that CS23D converges for >95% of protein queries, and these chemical shift generated structures were found to be within 0.2–2.8 Å RMSD of the NMR structure generated using conventional NOE-base NMR methods or conventional X-ray methods.

It is believed that SHIFTY may have widespread utility in assigning individual members in families of related proteins, an endeavor that accounts for a growing portion of the protein NMR work being done today.

Protein chemical shift analysis: a practical guide

Proper protein chemical shift analysis requires careful experimental measurements and the implementation of standardized referencing procedures. In this article we outline the steps necessary to

This new method for rapidly and quantitatively determining the identity, extent, and location of secondary structural elements in proteins based on the simple inspection of the alpha-CH 1H resonance assignments is found to be almost as accurate as the more traditional NOE-based methods of determining secondary structure.

Cα and Cβ Carbon-13 Chemical Shifts in Proteins From an Empirical Database

We have constructed an extensive database of 13C Cα and Cβ chemical shifts in proteins of solution, for proteins of which a high-resolution crystal structure exists, and for which the crystal

Protein backbone angle restraints from searching a database for chemical shift and sequence homology

TALOS yields the 10 triplets which have the closest similarity in secondary chemical shift and amino acid sequence to those of the query sequence, and these averages can reliably be used as angular restraints for the protein whose structure is being studied.

An algorithm for prediction of 15N and 13C shifts in proteins from their structure based on density functional calculations on peptides is incorporated into a program called SHIFTS, which should be helpful in NMR assignment, crystal and solution structure comparison, and structure refinement.
