Heterodinuclear metalloenzymes are an important class of metalloproteins, but determining the location of the different metal ions can be difficult. Herein we present a new NMR spectroscopy method that uses pseudocontact shifts (PCS) to achieve this without assumptions about the coordinating ligands. The approach is illustrated with the dinuclear [FeZn] complex of IMP-1, which is a prototypical metallo-β-lactamase (MβL) that confers resistance to β-lactam antibiotics. Results from...[Show more]
