    Amyloidosis of Alzheimer's A peptides: solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance, transmission electron microscopy, scanning transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy studies2004In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 231-246Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aggregation cascade for Alzheimer's amyloid-β peptides, its relevance to neurotoxicity in the course of Alzheimer's disease and experimental methods useful for these studies are discussed. Details of the solid-phase peptide synthesis and sample preparation procedures for Alzheimer's β-amyloid fibrils are given. Recent progress in obtaining structural constraints on Aβ-fibrils from solid-state NMR and scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) data is discussed. Polymorphism of amyloid fibrils and oligomers of the 'Arctic' mutant of Aβ(1-40) was studied by 1H,13C solid-state NMR, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM), and a real-time aggregation of different polymorphs of the peptide was observed with the aid of in situ AFM. Recent results on binding of Cu(II) ions and Al-citrate and Al-ATP complexes to amyloid fibrils, as studied by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and solid-state 27Al NMR techniques, are also presented.

    Self-diffusion in a hyaluronic acid–albumin–water system as studied by NMR2012In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 50, no 2, p. 114-119Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the presence of even a small amount of hyaluronic acid, the self-diffusion coefficient of albumin decreases. Three hypotheses were proposed and analyzed. The most likely one is that BSA and HA molecules form complex. The state of the BSA molecules in the BSA-HA-D2O system corresponds to a ‘fast exchange’ condition from the NMR point of view: BSA molecules reside in the ‘free’ and ‘bound’ states for much shorter time than the diffusion time of the PFG NMR experiment. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an anionic biopolymer that is present in many tissues and can be involved in cancerous neoformations. HA can form complexes with proteins (particularly, serum albumin) in the body. However, HA structures and processes involving HA have not been extensively studied by NMR because the molecule's rigid structure makes these studies problematic. In the current work, self-diffusion of HA and bovine serum albumin (BSA), and water in solutions was measured by 1H pulsed field gradient NMR (PFG NMR) with a focus on the HA-BSA-D2O systems at various concentrations of BSA and HA. It was shown that in the presence of even a small amount of HA, the self-diffusion coefficient (SDC) of BSA decreases. To explain this fact, three hypotheses were proposed and analyzed. The first one was based on the effect of slowing down of water mobility in the presence of HA. The second hypothesis suggested an effect of mechanical collisions of BSA with HA molecules. The third hypothesized that BSA and HA molecules form a complex where BSA molecules reduced in mobility. It was shown that the third mechanism is the most likely. The state of the BSA molecules in the BSA-HA-D2O system corresponds to a ‘fast exchange’ condition from the NMR point of view: BSA molecules reside in the ‘free’ and ‘bound’ (with HA) states for much shorter time than the diffusion time of the PFG NMR experiment, 7 ms. The fractions of ‘bound’ BSA molecules in the BSA-HA complex were estimated.

    Dynamic Properties of Imidazolium Orthoborate Ionic Liquids Mixed with Polyethylene Glycol Studied by NMR Diffusometry and Impedance Spectroscopy2018In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 56, no 2, p. 113-119Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We used 1H pulsed field gradient (PFG) NMR to study the self-diffusion of polyethylene glycol (PEG) with average molecular mass of 200 and ions in mixtures of PEG with imidazolium bis(mandelato)borate (BMB) and imidazolium bis(oxalato)borate (BOB) ionic liquids (ILs). The ionic liquid was mixed with PEG in the concentration range of 0–100 wt%. Within the temperature range of 295 to 353 K, the diffusion coefficient of BMB is slower than that of the imidazolium cation. The diffusion coefficients of PEG, as well as the imidazolium cation and BMB anions, differ under all experimental conditions tested. This demonstrates that the IL in the mixture is present in at least a partially dissociated state. Generally, increasing the concentration of PEG leads to an increase in the diffusion coefficients of PEG and both the ions, and decreases their activation energy for diffusion. NMR chemical shift alteration analysis showed that the presence of PEG changes the chemical shifts of both ions but in different directions. Impedance spectroscopy was used to measure the ionic conductivity of the ionic liquids mixed with PEG.

    Self-diffusion and interactions in mixtures of imidazolium bis(mandelato)borate ionic liquids with polyethylene glycol: 1H NMR study2015In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 53, no 7, p. 493-497Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We used 1H nuclear magnetic resonance pulsed-field gradient to study the self-diffusion of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and ions in a mixture of PEG and imidazolium bis(mandelato)borate ionic liquids (ILs) at IL concentrations from 0 to 10 wt% and temperatures from 295 to 370 K. PEG behaves as a solvent for these ILs, allowing observation of separate lines in 1H NMR spectra assigned to the cation and anion as well as to PEG. The diffusion coefficients of PEG, as well as the imidazolium cation and bis(mandelato)borate (BMB) anion, differ under all experimental conditions tested. This demonstrates that the IL in the mixture is present in at least a partially dissociated state, while the lifetimes of the associated states of the ions and ions with PEG are less than ~30 ms. Generally, increasing the concentration of the IL leads to a decrease in the diffusion coefficients of PEG and both ions. The diffusion coefficient of the anion is less than that of the cation; the molecular mass dependence of diffusion of ions can be described by the Stokes–Einstein model. NMR chemical shift alteration analysis showed that the presence of PEG changes mainly the chemical shifts of protons belonging to imidazole ring of the cation, while chemical shifts of protons of anions and PEG remain unchanged. This demonstrated that the imidazolium cation interacts mainly with PEG, which most probably occurs through the oxygen of PEG and the imidazole ring. The BMB anion does not strongly interact with PEG, but it may be indirectly affected by PEG through interaction with the cation, which directly interacts with PEG

    Aggregation of amyloid Aβ(1-40) peptide in perdeuterated 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol caused by ultrasound sonication2010In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 48, no 6, p. 427-434Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ultrasound sonication of protein and peptide solutions is routinely used in biochemical, biophysical, pharmaceutical and medical sciences to facilitate and accelerate dissolution of macromolecules in both aqueous and organic solvents. However, the impact of ultrasound waves on folding/unfolding of treated proteins, in particular, on aggregation kinetics of amyloidogenic peptides and proteins is not understood. In this work, effects of ultrasound sonication on the misfolding and aggregation behavior of the Alzheimer's Aβ (1-40)-peptide is studied by pulsed-field gradient (PFG) spin-echo diffusion NMR and UV circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy. Upon simple dissolution of Aβ(1-40) in perdeuterated trifluoroethanol, CF3-CD2-OD (TFE-d3), the peptide is present in the solution as a stable monomer adopting α-helical secondary structural motifs. The self-diffusion coefficient of Aβ(1 -40) monomers in TFE-d3 was measured as 1.35 × 10-10 m2 s-1, reflecting its monomeric character. However, upon ultrasonic sonication for less than 5 min, considerable populations of Aβ molecules (ca 40%) form large aggregates as reflected in diffusion coefficients smaller than 4.0 × 10-13 m2 s-1. Sonication for longer times (up to 40 min in total) effectively reduces the fraction of these aggregates in 1H PFG NMR spectra to ca 25%. Additionally, absorption below 230 nm increased significantly upon sonication treatment, an observation, which also clearly confirms the ongoing aggregation process of Aβ(1-40) in TFE-d3. Surprisingly, upon ultrasound sonication only small changes in the peptide secondary structure were detected by CD: the peptide molecules mainly adopt α-helical motifs in both monomers and aggregates formed upon sonication.

    Disordering of phospholipid headgroups induced by a small amount of polyethylene oxide2013In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 51, no 1, p. 1-3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present a 31P NMR spectroscopy study of planar glass-plate-oriented multi-bilayers of dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) with addition of polyethylene oxide (PEO). This work revealed the presence of a new component in the spectra that appeared only with addition of a small fraction of PEO (up to one PEO segment per dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine molecule) and disappeared when larger amounts of PEO were added. We explained this phenomenon as an effect of an inhomogeneous force field induced by the PEO molecules located at a certain depth in the lipid membrane interface region

    Lateral diffusion in sphingomyelin bilayers2010In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 48, no 12, p. 945-950Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sphingomyelin (SM) is an important lipid of eukaryotic cellular membranes and neuronal tissues. We studied lateral diffusion in macroscopically oriented bilayers of synthetic palmitoylSM (PSM) and natural sphingomyelins of egg yolk (eSM), bovine brain (bSM) and bovine milk (mSM) by NMR pulsed field gradient (NMR PFG) in the temperature range of 50-60oC. We found that the mean values of lateral diffusion coefficients (LDCs) of SMs are 1.9-fold lower in comparison with dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine, which is similar in molecular structure. This discrepancy could be explained by the characteristics of intermolecular SM interactions. The LDCs of different SMs differ: egg SM is most similar to PSM, both of them have a 10% higher LDC value in comparison with the two other natural SMs. Besides, all natural SMs show a complicated form of the spin-echo diffusion decay, which is an indicator of a distribution of LDC values in bilayers. This peculiarity was explained by broad distributions of fatty acid lengths of the natural SMs studied here, especially mSM and bSM. We confirmed the relationship between chain length and the LDC in bilayers by computer analysis of a set of 1H NMR spectra obtained by scanning the value of the pulsed field gradient: there is a correlation between lower LDC values and SM molecules with longer acyl chains. The most probable mechanisms by which long-chain SM molecules decrease their lateral diffusion relative to the average value are protrusion into the other side of the bilayer or lateral separation into areas that diverge with their LDCs.

    Interaction of polyacrylic acid with lipid bilayers: effect of polymer mass2013In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 51, no 11, p. 750-755Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Polyanion-coated lipid vesicles are proposed to have an appreciable potential for drug delivery because of their ability to control the permeability of lipid bilayers by environmental parameters such as pH and temperature. However, details of the interaction of this class of polymers with lipids and their mechanisms of induced permeability are still being debated. In this work, we applied 1H NOESY to study details of the interaction of polyacrylic acid (PAA) fractions of molecular weights 5 and 240 kDa with dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine vesicles. We showed that PAA of two different molecular masses modifies lipid bilayers increasing disorder and probability of close contact between polar and hydrophobic groups. PAA molecules adsorb near the interface of lipid bilayers but do not penetrate into the hydrophobic core of the bilayer and, thus, cannot participate in formation of transbilayer channels, proposed in earlier works. Increasing the molecular mass of PAA from 5 kDa to 240 kDa does not change the effect of PAA on the bilayer, although PAA240 forms a more compact structure (either intra-molecular or inter-molecular) and interacts more strongly with interface lipid protons

    Solid-state 13C, 15N and 29Si NMR characterization of block copolymers with CO2 capture properties2016In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 54, no 9, p. 734-739Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Natural abundance solid-state multinuclear (13C, 15N and 29Si) cross-polarization magic-angle-spinning NMR was used to study structures of three block copolymers based on polyamide and dimethylsiloxane and two polyamides, one of which including ferrocene in its structure. Assignment of most of the resonance lines in 13C, 15N and 29Si cross-polarization magic angle-spinning NMR spectra were suggested. A comparative analysis of 13C isotropic chemical shifts of polyamides with and without ferrocene has revealed a systematic shift towards higher δ -values (de-shielding) explained as the incorporation of paramagnetic ferrocene into the polyamide backbone. In addition, the 13C NMR resonance lines for ferrocene-based polyamide were significantly broadened, because of paramagnetic effects from ferrocene incorporated in the structure of this polyamide polymer. Single resonance lines with chemical shifts ranging from 88.1 to 91.5ppm were observed for 15N sites in all of studied polyamide samples. 29Si chemical shifts were found to be around 22.4ppm in polydimethylsiloxane samples that falls in the range of chemical shifts for alkylsiloxane compounds. The CO2 capture performance of polyamide-dimethylsiloxane-based block copolymers was measured as a function of temperature and pressure. The data revealed that these polymeric materials have potential to uptake CO2 (up to 9.6 cm3 g1) at ambient pressures and in the temperature interval 30–40 °C.

    Spatial structure of heptapeptide Aβ 16-22 (beta-amyloid Aβ 1-40 active fragment) in solution and in complex with a biological membrane model2012In: Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, ISSN 0749-1581, E-ISSN 1097-458X, Vol. 50, no 12, p. 784-792Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The spatial structure of an active fragment of beta-amyloid Aβ 1-40 heptapeptide Aβ 16-22 (Lys-Leu-Val-Phe-Phe-Ala-Glu) in aqueous buffer solution and in complex with sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles as a model membrane system was investigated by 1H NMR spectroscopy and two-dimensional NMR (TOCSY, HSQC-HECADE (Heteronuclear Couplings from ASSCI-domain experiments with E.COSY-type crosspeaks), NOESY) spectroscopy. Complex formation was confirmed by the chemical shift changes of the heptapeptide's 1H NMR spectra, as well as by the signs and values of the NOE effects in different environments. We compared the spatial structure of the heptapeptide in borate buffer solution and in complex with a model of the cell surface membrane
