NMR spectroscopy has proven to be a powerful technique to study the structure and dynamics of biological macromolecules. Fundamentals of Protein NMR Spectroscopy is a comprehensive textbook that guides the reader from a basic understanding of the phenomenological properties of magnetic resonance to the application and interpretation of modern multi-dimensional NMR experiments on15N/13C-labeled proteins. Beginning with elementary quantum mechanics, a set of practical rules is presented and used to describe many commonly employed multi-dimensional, multi-nuclear NMR pulse sequences. A modular analysis of NMR pulse sequence building blocks also provides a basis for understanding and developing novel pulse programs. This text not only covers topics from chemical shift assignment to protein structure refinement, as well as the analysis of protein dynamics and chemical kinetics, but also provides a practical guide to many aspects of modern spectrometer hardware, sample preparation, experimental set-up, and data processing. End of chapter exercises are included to emphasize important concepts. Fundamentals of Protein NMR Spectroscopy not only offer students a systematic, in-depth, understanding of modern NMR spectroscopy and its application to biomolecular systems, but will also be a useful reference for the experienced investigator.

Professor of Biological Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University.Professor Rule's research is directed at understanding inter-molecular interactions in biological systems. An understanding of these interactions is required if biological systems are to be comprehended at the molecular level. The combined tools of molecular biology, NMR sp...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"I think this may become a very useful addition to the repertoire of books on biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. This text is more complete than the well-known book by Cavanagh et al., in the derivation of theoretical results and at the same time it contains more practical information. It is more up to date compared with the 1996 edition of Cavanagh (for instance by including residual dipolar couplings) and the inclusion of exercises is also an attractive feature."(Prof. Dr. Rob Kaptein, Bijvoet Center for Biomolecular Research, The Netherlands)
