Pick up a prion: Solid state NMR spots the differences

Date: Nov 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Researchers in the USA have used solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to study the rogue proteins involved in familial human cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). This hereditary neurodegenerative condition is one of the family of prion diseases that afflict mammals and include bovine spongiform encephalopathy (often referred to colloquially as "mad cow disease"), Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans, their equivalents in cats, mice, hamsters and other animals.

Final piece of protein puzzle: NMR tops and tails HIV

Date: Nov 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has been used to put in place the final piece of the HIV-1 protein structure, the cytoplasmic tail of gp41 protein. The research by a team at the University of Alabama at Birmingham led by Jamil Saad will help scientists better understand how the virus infects human cells and how progeny viruses are assembled and released from infected cells.

Journal Highlight: The C6H6 NMR repository: an integral solution to control the flow of your data from the magnet to the public

Date: Oct 30, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A powerful toolbox built on recent technologies that runs inside the browser and provides a means to store, share, analyse and interact with original NMR data has been developed under MIT license to facilitate the sharing of NMR data.

Spot the difference: NMR technique for drug design

Date: Oct 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

A powerful new NMR technique DiffErential EPitope mapping by STD NMR spectroscopy (DEEP-STD NMR) is being used by researchers in the UK to reveal the nature of the contact between ligand and protein target with a view to developing new pharmaceuticals with fewer side-effects.

New 1.2 GHz NMR Spectrometers - New Horizons?

Date: Oct 3, 2017

Author: Prof. Dr. Harald Schwalbe

The latest ultrahigh-field NMR spectrometers are a huge technological challenge that require large financial investments. In his Guest Editorial written in the July issue of Angewandte Chemie, Harald Schwalbe justifies the need for spectrometers with higher magnetic field strengths. The important results from previous generations of high-field NMR spectrometers are discussed, and research areas are identified that will benefit from the latest spectrometers.

Journal Highlight: Lipoprotein particle concentration measured by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is associated with gestational age at delivery: a prospective cohort study

Date: Oct 2, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The complex relationship between maternal lipoproteins and preterm birth has been studied using NMR to measure lipoprotein particle levels in the blood of women at 24-29 weeks gestation.

Cryo-electron microscopy: Alzheimer's fibrils

Date: Oct 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

A technique that can augment X-ray crystallographic and spectroscopic studies has been demonstrated to provide an atomic resolution in imaging of the amyloid fibrils present in Alzheimer's disease, thanks to European research.

Journal Highlight: T1 Nuclear magnetic relaxation dispersion of hyperpolarized sodium and cesium hydrogencarbonate-13C

Date: Sep 4, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The T1 dispersion from low to clinical magnetic fields of different hyperpolarized hydrogencarbonate formulations previously proposed in the literature for in vivo pH measurements has been measured to aid pH mapping in tissue.

Date rape drug metabolite: NMR reveals evidence next day

Date: Aug 15, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy can be used to quickly identify a biomarker for the presence of gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB, the so-called "date rape" drug) in a biological sample from a putative victim of crime. Details are reported in the American Chemical Society's journal Analytical Chemistry.

Social rank: Stressed out by NMR

Date: Aug 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Social ranking is a major determining factor for vulnerability to chronic stress, according to a new study that uses nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to look at energy metabolism in the brain as a predictive biomarker.
