NMR Laboratory

NMR Facility Overview

The Biomolecular NMR Facility at Western University houses three high field NMR instruments, two Varian INOVA 600 MHz and one UNITY 500 MHz spectrometers, and a variety of accessories that allow a large number of biological NMR experiments to be done.

The facility has supported research projects that focus on calcium signaling, protein folding, enzyme catalysis, signal transduction, membrane structure and function, bone mineralization and "jumping genes".

Capabilities of the facility include:
Characterization of small biological molecules
Three-dimensional structure determination of soluble proteins in solution
Drug and receptor interactions
Protein dynamics
Mapping of protein-protein binding interfaces
Determine changes in protein conformation
