Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Core

The main focus of the facility is to apply high resolution Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to structural characterization of biomolecules, small organic compounds and natural products; to investigate interactions between biomolecules, biomolecules and ligands, to do the NMR-based metabolomics and fragment-based drug screening etc.
 
The facility has commercial software such as Discover Studio, Chenomx as well as some free software for biomolecular characterization and metabolomics studies.
 

Abstract

The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Core is located in the Hilton Building, Room 123. The main focus of this core is to apply high resolution NMR spectroscopy to the structural characterization of biomolecules, small organic compounds, natural products; investigation of biomolecular complexes including protein-protein, protein-nucleic acid and protein-ligand complexes; identification of metabolites in biofluids; and fragment-based drug screening.
 

The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Core has one Bruker 600 MHz Avance NMR instrument that is equipped with four channels, a TXI cryo-probe and a room temperature probe, and one Bruker 700 MHz Ascend equipped with TCI cryoprobe and a sample jet can handle up to 480 NMR tubes for batch screening study. Both instruments are operated with HP workstations running the Linux operating system, have pulse shaping capability on three channels (1H/13C/15N), and 2H decoupling capability.

NEWS & UPDATES
  • On Jan. 1, 2015, six City of Hope patients who have journeyed through cancer will welcome the new year with their loved ones atop City of Hope’s Tournament of Roses Parade float. The theme of the float is “Made Possible by HOPE.” The theme of the parade is “Inspiring Stories.” Repr...
  • When 25-year-old Angelina Mattos was diagnosed with Stage 4 oral cancer earlier this year, she learned that her only hope of survival was through the removal of her tongue, a surgery that leaves people without the ability to talk or eat normally, sometimes permanently ending their ability to speak. After hearin...
  • Two years ago, Joselyn Miller and her family sat together as stem cells from her brother’s bone marrow were infused into her – a precious gift of life that the family is excited to have the chance to pass to another patient in need. Today, the stem cell recipient is healthy. Her 23-year-old son Rex, who […...
  • Even as the overall rate of oral cancers in the United States steadily declines, the rate of tongue cancer is increasing — especially among white females ages 18 to 44. An oral cancer diagnosis, although rare, is serious. Only half of the people diagnosed with oral cancer are still alive after five years, accor...
  • Sometimes cancer found in the lungs is not lung cancer at all. It can be another type of cancer that originated elsewhere in the body and spread, or metastasized, to the lungs through the bloodstream or lymphatic system. These tumors are called lung metastases, or metastatic cancer to the lungs, and are not the...
  • When it comes to research into the treatment of hematologic cancers, City of Hope scientists stand out. One study that  they presented this week at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology suggests a new standard of care for HIV-associated lymphoma, another offers promise for the treatment of re...
  • Patients with HIV-associated lymphoma may soon have increased access to the current standard of care for some non-HIV infected patients – autologous stem cell transplants. Impressive new data, presented Monday at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in San Francisco, indicate that HIV-...

  • The holidays can create an overwhelming urge to give to people in need — especially to sick children and families spending the holidays in a hospital room. That’s a good thing. Holiday donations of toys and gifts can bolster the spirits, and improve the lives, of people affected by illness, and hospitals ...

  • Cancer has a way of “talking” to the immune system and corrupting it to work on its own behalf instead of defending the body. Blocking this communication would allow the immune system to see cancer cells for what they are – something to be fought off – and stop them from growing. A breakthrough Scientists [R...
