Abstract

Nonsymmetric motion: Solid-state NMR measurements of dipolar coupling tensors provide insight into protein dynamics. The hitherto ignored asymmetry of the dipolar coupling tensor contains valuable information about motional asymmetry, which was used in the first direct site-resolved measurement of such tensors. Important motions such as rotamer jumps can now be directly detected in the solid state.
