The experiments were performed with a precipitated U-13C/15N KcsA, LPR =1, 9:1 DOPE-DOPS D2O citrate buffer pH 7.5

Processing and analysis

Use NMRGLUE for processing. T2 exponential decay is modulated by 13C-1H residual dipolar coupling. It is possible to either fit it using a numerical solution (Fresnel integral in equation 1 in Fritzsching et). Alternately, you can collect enough points to do an FT and measure dipolar coupling exactly.
