Spatiotemporal Resolution of Conformational Changes in Biomolecules by Combining Pulsed Electron–Electron Double Resonance Spectroscopy with Microsecond Freeze-Hyperquenching
- Journal Article
The function of proteins is linked to their conformations that can be resolved with several high-resolution methods. However, only a few methods can provide the temporal order of intermediates and conformational changes, with each having its limitations. Here, we combine pulsed electron–electron double resonance spectroscopy with a microsecond freeze-hyperquenching setup to achieve spatiotemporal resolution in the angstrom range and lower microsecond time scale. We show that the conformational change of the Cα-helix in the cyclic nucleotide-binding domain of the Mesorhizobium loti potassium channel occurs within about 150 μs and can be resolved with angstrom precision. Thus, this approach holds great promise for obtaining 4D landscapes of conformational changes in biomolecules. Copyright © 2021 The Authors. Published by American Chemical Society Show more
