Using Paramagnetism to Slow Down Nuclear Relaxation in Protein NMR

Orton, Henry W; Kuprov, Ilya; Loh, Choy-Theng; Otting, Gottfried


Paramagnetic metal ions accelerate nuclear spin relaxation; this effect is widely used for distance measurement and called paramagnetic relaxation enhancement (PRE). Theoretical predictions established that, under special circumstances, it is also possible to achieve a reduction in nuclear relaxation rates (negative PRE). This situation would occur if the mechanism of nuclear relaxation in the diamagnetic state is counterbalanced by a paramagnetic relaxation mechanism caused by the metal ion....[Show more]
