A 13C NMR spin-lattice relaxation study of the interaction of myelin proteins with ipid vesicles


, : A 13C NMR spin-lattice relaxation study of the interaction of myelin proteins with ipid vesicles. Biophysical Chemistry 12(1): 133-141

Natural abundance 13C nuclear magnetic spin-lattice relaxation times have been measured for bovine brain phosphatidylserine vesicles with and without bound proteins. The relaxation times were lower than published values for the corresponding nuclei in egg phosphatidylcholine, but showed the same trend, with relaxation times increasing along the acyl chains away from the polar headgroup. These times were inversely related to the degree of saturation of the lipid. Cytochrome c caused insignificant changes in the lipid acyl chain relaxation rates but reduced the resonance intensities, in agreement with Brown and Wüthrich (Biochem. Biophys. Acta 468 (1977) 389). In contrast, the basic protein from bovine myelin did not affect the intensities but reduced the relaxation times for 13C nuclei near the bilayer centre, and for nuclei near carbon-carbon double bonds. These proteins also dramatically broadened the serine headgroup carboxyl resonance. It appears, in accord with other recent evidence, that the basic protein does penetrate the hydrophobic region of the bilayer (possibly to the centre), producing quantitatively similar changes in the relaxation rates to proteolipid protein, an integral membrane protein.
