Pressure induced changes in the nmr spectra of a bio polymer in aqueous solution


, : Pressure induced changes in the nmr spectra of a bio polymer in aqueous solution. Biochemistry 17(8): 1506-1509

High resolution PMR spectra of the poly(amino acid) poly[N5-(3-hydroxypropyl)-L-glutamine], of degrees of polymerization 685 and 137, were measured in a mixed D2O and H2O solvent, at pressures from 1.03-1968.5 kg/cm2 and at temperatures of 2 and 10.degree. C. Increasing the pressure appeared to cause an increased mobility of the side chain hydrocarbon residues, and also of the .alpha.-hydrocarbon residue of the polymer chain. This is interpreted to imply the occurrence of a volume decrease on unfolding of the polymer from a helix to a random coil, with subsequent exposure of hydrophobic groups to the solvent.
