Solid-state (13)C NMR chemical shift anisotropy tensors of polypeptides.

Carbon-13 chemical shift anisotropy (CSA) tensors for various carbon sites of polypeptides, and for carbon sites in alpha-helical and beta-sheet conformations of poly-L-alanine, and polyglycine, are presented. The carbonyl (13)C CSA tensors were determined from one-dimensional CPMAS spectra obtained at a slow spinning speed, whereas the CSA tensors of C… CONTINUE READING
