|Abstract:||We study a C-terminal domain in a metalloprotein from measurements of its mean paramagnetic tensor χ¯ . The latter can be represented as a finite sum involving the corresponding magnetic susceptibility tensor χ and a finite number of rotations. We obtain an optimal estimate for the maximum probability that the C-terminal domain can assume a given orientation, and we show that only three rotations are required in the representation of χ¯ , and that in general two are not enough. We also investigate the situation in which a compatible pair of mean paramagnetic tensors is obtained. Under a mild assumption on the corresponding magnetic susceptibility tensors, justified on physical grounds, we again obtain an optimal estimate for the maximum probability that the C-terminal domain can assume a given orientation. Moreover, we prove that only ten rotations are required in the representation of the compatible pair of mean paramagnetic tensors, and that in general three are not enough. The theoretical investigation is concluded by a study of the coaxial case, when all rotations are assumed to have a common axis. Results are obtained via an interesting connection with another inverse problem, the quadratic complex moment problem. Finally, we describe an application to experimental NMR data.|
