A novel method is proposed for the analysis of protein NOEs in solution. In this approach, chemically synthesized precursor compounds for the amino acids valine, leucine, and isoleucine are used for amino acid specific labeling of these hydrophobic residues. The methodology is based on a novel synthetic route to 12C,1H,2H Val, Leu, and Ile side chains selectively labeled with 13CH3 only at the terminal methyl group. In an otherwise 12C,1H labeled protein, discrimination between protons bound to 12C and 13C (or 15N) can be achieved using standard isotope-editing NMR pulse schemes. This strategy significantly relieves problems with spectral overlap through selective observation of interresidue methyl NOEs and will thus be a powerful extension of existing biomolecular NMR methodology.
