Sequence-specific 1H NMR assignment and secondary structure of neuropeptide Y in aqueous solution

Sequence-specific assignment of the 1H NMR spectrum of the 36 amino acid polypeptide porcine neuropeptide Y (pNPY) at pH 3.1 is reported. It was achieved by use of standard two-dimensional techniques and by a combination of the sequential and main-chain-directed assignment strategies. The secondary structure was derived from inspection of the nuclear Overhauser spectra, slow hydrogen-deuterium exchange effects, chemical shifts of main-chain HA resonances, and coupling constants. These studies indicate that the C-terminal segment (residues 11-36) folds into an amphiphilic alpha-helix; the N-terminal segment, containing three prolines in both cis and trans conformations, assumes no regular structure. CD studies of pNPY at pH 3.1 and 7.4 show an increase in ordered structure at neutral pH. The difference spectrum, however, is typical of an alpha-helix and suggests a stabilization of residues 11-36, possibly via Maxfield-Scheraga pair interactions involving side-chain residues. This is supported by a comparison of the one-dimensional 1H NMR spectra of pNPY at pH 3.1 and 7.4, where no remarkable differences are observed.
