Default Low concentration of a Gd-chelate increases the signal-to-noise ratio in fast pulsing BEST experiments

Low concentration of a Gd-chelate increases the signal-to-noise ratio in fast pulsing BEST experiments


Publication year: 2012

Nathalie Sibille, Gaëtan Bellot, Jing Wang, Hélène Déméné

Despite numerous developments in the past few years that aim to increase the sensitivity of NMR multidimensional experiments, NMR spectroscopy still suffers from intrinsic low sensitivity. In this report, we show that the combination of two developments in the field, the Band-selective Excitation Short-Transient (BEST) experiment [Schanda et al., J. Am. Chem. Soc., 128 (2006) 9042] and the addition of the nonionic paramagnetic gadolinium chelate gadodiamide into NMR samples, enhances the signal-to-noise ratio. This effect is shown here for four different proteins, three globular and one unfolded, of molecular weights ranging from 6.5 kDa to 40 kDa, using 2D BEST HSQC and 3D BEST triple resonance sequences. Moreover, we show that the increase in signal-to-noise ratio provided by the gadodiamide is higher for peak resonances with lower than average intensity in BEST experiments. It is interesting to note that these residues are on average the weakest ones in those experiments. In this case, the gadodiamide-mediated increase can reach a value of 60% for low and 30% for high molecular weight proteins respectively. An investigation into the origin of this “paramagnetic gain” in BEST experiments is presented.

Graphical abstract Highlights

? We combined fast pulsing of BEST sequences and addition of a gadolinium chelate. ? Combination led to enhancement of the signal-to-noise ratio of BEST experiments. ? Larger enhancement for residues benefiting the least from fast pulsing.

[Question from NMRWiki Q&A forum] Pt 195 NMR Signal to Noise
Pt 195 NMR Signal to Noise I need help with parameters on a Varian system for Pt-195 NMR. I am having trouble with signal to noise. From what I've read the sensitivity should be better than carbon but I'm not seeing that at all. Any suggestions? Check if somebody has answered this question on NMRWiki QA forum

[Question from NMRWiki Q&A forum] poor signal to noise on 1H-15N heteronculear NOE
poor signal to noise on 1H-15N heteronculear NOE I have recently attempted to run a 1H-15N heteronuclear NOE experiment in vnmrj (700 rt probe) using the standard sequence that comes with biopack, the signal to nose im getting compared to my standard HSQC is significantly reduced, is this normal? I do not recall this being the case when I ran this previously on a bruker 600 with RT probe? is this normal or does this suggest something is miss set? Also in the no NOE experiment I get very broad noise in the centre of my spectrum/water line. regards Tom

Signal enhancement in protein NMR using the spin-noise tuning optimum
Signal enhancement in protein NMR using the spin-noise tuning optimum Abstract We have assessed the potential of an alternative probe tuning strategy based on the spin-noise response for application in common high-resolution multi-dimensional biomolecular NMR experiments with water signal suppression on aqueous and salty samples. The method requires the adjustment of the optimal tuning condition, which may be offset by several 100 kHz from the conventional tuning settings using the noise response of the water protons as an indicator. Although the radio frequency-pulse durations are...
