High-Field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

High-Field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Leading-edge Equipment Home

Equipment Introduction

900 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer is a core equipment for the study of biomolecular structure and development of new drugs which is installed in Ochang Center. It is utilized as a national collaborative research equipment.

Characteristics of the Equipment

  • The sensitivity of the cryogenic probe to 1H is more than 4 times (8,000) that of conventional room temperature probe, so the experiment time can be shortened to 1/16
  • Protein structural studies can be performed with 100 μM or lower concentration samples
  • Minimum mass for 13C experiment of natural products is about 100 μg

Representative Research Case

Target Search Pathways Visualized by Paramagnetic NMR Spectroscopy

NMR paramagnetic relaxation enhancement have been employed to visualize the encounter complexes between histidine-containing phosphocarrier protein and the N-terminal domain of enzyme I and demonstrate that protein association can be significantly enhanced by engineering on-pathways.

Paramagnetic NMR spectroscopy visualizes the protein target search process


  • J-based configuration analysis of natural compound
  • Self assembly and DOSY NMR of the molecular knot and macrocycle
