Hello,
I have some questions regarding the alignment matrix and I will be very much grateful if you could clarify my doubts.

Question 1:
1) I like to calculate the angle between the magnetic field and X,Y & Z axes of the alignment frame. For that, I have run PALES and got the values for Sxx, Sxy, Sxz, Syy & Syz. From Sxx value I have calculated cos(tx) and cos(ty) from Syy. Substituting these values in 1/2(3cos(tx)*cos(ty)), I calculated Sxy. But, this calculated value does not match with Sxy obtained from PALES.

Question 2:
I found that the saupe parameters are in the order of 10 to the power -3 & above. However, an artile about the implimentation of svd procedure (Losonczi etal., J. Magnetic Resonance, 138,334-342 (1999)) indicates that the value of S's should lie between ~-1.0 to +1.0.

Question 3:
I found in the literature that Dconst= -mu*gamma(i)*gamma(j)*h/8*pi*pi*pi*r*r*r (Zweckstetter & Ad Bax, JACS, 2000, Tsui etal, 2000, J. Bio. Mol. NMR). However, an additional 2/3 term is found in the article by Bastiaan et al., Annual reports on NMR spectroscopy, 1987.
I will be very much thanful if you could help me to understand these.

When you run PALES, it should report you the magnitude of alignment, that is Sxx, Syy, Szz, etc. It should tell you the Euler angles correspondingly, right? So you can calculate the angles from these euler angles. For instance, angle between magnetic field and Szz is the Euler angle beta.

Question 2:
I found that the saupe parameters are in the order of 10 to the power -3 & above. However, an artile about the implimentation of svd procedure (Losonczi etal., J. Magnetic Resonance, 138,334-342 (1999)) indicates that the value of S's should lie between ~-1.0 to +1.0.

Hey, that is because they use different unit. It is scaled by a constant, Gamma(I)*Gamma(S)/r^3.

Question 3:
I found in the literature that Dconst= -mu*gamma(i)*gamma(j)*h/8*pi*pi*pi*r*r*r (Zweckstetter & Ad Bax, JACS, 2000, Tsui etal, 2000, J. Bio. Mol. NMR). However, an additional 2/3 term is found in the article by Bastiaan et al., Annual reports on NMR spectroscopy, 1987.
That is because they use different definition of S and R. Some guys use S and eta.

Backbone resonance assignment and order tensor estimation using residual dipolar couplings
Backbone resonance assignment and order tensor estimation using residual dipolar couplings
Abstract An NMR investigation of proteins with known X-ray structures is of interest in a number of endeavors. Performing these studies through nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) requires the costly step of resonance assignment. The prevalent assignment strategy does not make use of existing structural information and requires uniform isotope labeling. Here we present a rapid and cost-effective method of assigning NMR data to an existing structureâ??either an X-ray or computationally modeled...

RDC refinement, via gyration tensor
Hi,
I am trying to find an alignment tensor for my RNA molecule.
This I want to do by calculating the gyration tensor, and derive the alignment tensor.
like in J. Biomol. NMR (2006) 35, pp. 103-115
problem is to do relatively simple manipulations in xplor
For example calculate the product of x-coordinate times y-coordinates of all atoms in the PDB file.

Spin and spatial tensor manipulations are frequently required to describe and the theory of NMR experiments. This is a Mathematica package, which provides some of the most common functions for these calculations. Examples are the calculation of matrix representations of operators, commutators, projections, rotations, Redfield matrix elements, matrix decomposition into basis operators, change of basis, coherence filtering, and the manipulation of...
