Abstract

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy enables the determination of three-dimensional protein structures at atomic resolution under near-physiological conditions in solution. In structural biology, NMR complements X-ray crystallography, which provides similar information on proteins in single crystals.
