Thank you for your help. By chance, do you know of any equations would be most appropriate for slow exchange?

Hi Robert,


CCPN use the equations from the Vanderbilt website.

Use the 9th equation down form protein-ligand. The longest equation is for monomer-dimer binding.

Hi Robert,

Yes CCPNmr Analysis v2.x can hep you do this easily. Before you try fitting the data, evaluate whether you have data that will actually be worth fitting - do the chemical shifts titrate with increasing ligand concentration and follow what appears to be a saturation process, i.e. do they initially shift a lot for small ligand additions, but then you reach a ligand concentration beyond which you see no further changes?

For the actual procedure, some of this is covered in the analysis beginners course tutorial part 2

but not in much detail - partly because it's quite simple. In outline:

If everything works well, for your chosen peaks, you can get braver and pick more peaks and even try trusting Follow Shift Changes to propagate the assignments for you, but this can get messy, so be sure to Archive your project before attempting anything risky.

I am trying to calculate dissociation constant (Kd) of a ligand when it binds to my protein. I have found that CCPNmr can use binding models to do this but I am unsure on the protocol. I already have my HSQC spectra overlaid in a window. Although, I do not have the backbone assigned, I want to get a grasp on how to pick peaks and make the calculation. If anyone has experience doing this, I would be grateful if you could clarify a few things for me.


Also, if anyone has any alternative suggestions, I am open to trying a different method. Thank you.
