Abstract
Very fast magic-angle spinning (MAS > 80 kHz) NMR combined with high-field magnets has enabled the acquisition of proton-detected spectra in fully protonated solid samples with sufficient resolution and sensitivity. One of the primary challenges in structure determination of protein is observing long-range 1H-1H contacts. Here we use band-selective spin-lock pulses to obtain selective 1H-1H contacts (e.g., HN-HN) on the order of 5-6 Å in fully protonated proteins at 111 kHz MAS. This approach is a major advancement in structural characterization of proteins given that magnetization can be selectively transferred between protons that are 5-6 Å apart despite the presence of other protons at shorter distance. The observed contacts are similar to those previously observed only in perdeuterated proteins with selective protonation. Simulations and experiments show the proposed method has performance that is superior to that of the currently used methods. The method is demonstrated on GB1 and a β-barrel membrane protein, AlkL.
