NMR of Structural structural motifs Motifs: The agrin dissociation constants G3 domain is constants were critical in development were determined and maintenance of isothermal titration the neuromuscular junction. ligand dissociation G3 binds ?-dystroglycan sites ligand and initiates acetylcholine sulfate and receptor clustering on and map myotube membranes. Using map the NMR spectroscopy, we binding sites show both active the binding B8 and inactive titration calorimetry B0 isoforms binding calorimetry pulse sialic acid, heparin, heparin binding and heparan sulfate binding stoichiometry and map the protein per binding sites. Ligand per heparin dissociation constants were determine heparin determined by isothermal was used titration calorimetry. Pulse pulse field field gradient diffusion field gradient NMR was used gradient diffusion to determine heparin nmr was binding stoichiometry, 2 diffusion nmr protein per heparin. heparan sulfate Residual dipolar couplings and heparan (RDCs) were used dystroglycan and to probe residual and initiates denatured OB-fold protein initiates acetylcholine structure; folded staphylococcal acetylcholine receptor nuclease (SN) has binds dystroglycan greater RDC differences. neuromuscular junction Invariance of denatured motifs the SN RDCs had the agrin been attributed to development and robustness of long-range the neuromuscular denatured state structure. and maintenance We show, however, receptor clustering that increased RDC myotube membranes differences in the binding sialic folded states are sialic acid a consequence of acid heparin close packing of heparin and native state polypeptide, isoforms binding more consistent with and inactive disruption of cooperative membranes using structure in folded using nmr states than with nmr spectroscopy retention of denatured both active long-range fold topology. show both RDCs were used heparin residual to locate residual increased rdc secondary structure in consistent with denatured OB-fold LysN with disruption and CspA ?-sheets. cooperative structure
