Abstract

Paramagnetic effects on the NMR spectra are known to encode information on structure, electronic properties and dynamics hardly accessible with any other technique, especially in the field of biological systems. Paramagnetism-based restraints are conveniently used for the de novo determination of protein structures, the structural refinement starting from crystallographic models, and for the determination of the internal arrangement of domains with known structures. Conformational variability can also be profitably interrogated including the possibility of uncovering the presence of states with very low population. The recent advances in the quantum chemistry treatment of paramagnetic NMR effects has provided new momentum to the field, allowing for the refinement of protein structures at the metal coordination site to an unprecedented resolution.
