Summary of "Optimized NMR Experiments for the Isolation of I = ½ Manifold Transitions in Methyl Groups of Proteins."

Optimized NMR experiments are developed for isolating magnetization belonging to the I=1/2 manifolds of 13CH3 methyl groups in proteins, enabling the manipulation of the magnetization of a 13CH3 moiety as if it were an AX (1H-13C) spin-system. These experiments result in the same 'simplification' of a 13CH3 spin-system that would be obtained from the production of {13CHD2}-methyl-labeled protein samples. The sensitivity of I=1/2 manifold-selection experiments is a factor of approximately 2 less than that of the experiments acquired on {13CHD2}-labeled methyl groups. The methodology described here is primarily intended for small-to-medium sized proteins, where the losses in sensitivity associated with the isolation of I=1/2 manifold transitions can be tolerated. Several NMR applications that benefit from simplification of the 13CH3 (AX3) spin-systems are described, with an emphasis on the measurements of methyl 1H-13C residual dipolar couplings in a {13CH3}-methyl-labeled deletion mutant of the human chaperone DNAJB6b, where modulation of NMR signal intensities due to evolution of methyl 1H-13C scalar and dipolar couplings follows a simple cosine function characteristic of an AX (1H-13C) spin-system, significantly simplifying data analysis.

Iron-free derivatives of heme with 4 methyl groups, 2 hydroxyethyl groups and 2 propionic acid groups attached to the pyrrole rings. Some of these PHOTOSENSITIZING AGENTS are used in the PHOTOTHERAPY of malignant NEOPLASMS.

Addition of methyl groups to DNA. DNA methyltransferases (DNA methylases) perform this reaction using S-ADENOSYLMETHIONINE as the methyl group donor.

Transmembrane sensor receptor proteins that are central components of the chemotactic systems of a number of motile bacterial species which include ESCHERICHIA COLI and SALMONELLA TYPHIMURIUM. Methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins derive their name from a sensory adaptation process which involves methylation at several glutamyl residues in their cytoplasmic domain. Methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins trigger chemotactic responses across spatial chemical gradients, causing organisms to move either toward favorable stimuli or away from toxic ones.
