Solid-state 13C magic angle sample spinning NMR spectroscopy has been used to study the ionone ring portion of the chromophore of bacteriorhodopsin. Spectra were obtained from fully hydrated samples regenerated with retinals 13C labeled at positions C-5, C-6, C-7, C-8, and C-18 and from lyophilized samples regenerated with retinals labeled at C-9 and C-13. C-15-labeled samples were studied in both lyophilized and hydrated forms. Three independent NMR parameters (the downfield element of the C-5 chemical shift tensor, the C-8 isotropic chemical shift, and the C-18 longitudinal relaxation time) indicate that the chromophore has a 6-s-trans conformation in the protein, in contrast to the 6-s-cis conformation that is energetically favored for retinoids in solution. We also observe an additional 27 ppm downfield shift in the middle element of the C-5 shift tensor, which provides support for the existence of a negatively charged protein residue near C-5. Evidence for a positive charge near C-7, possibly the counterion for the negative charge, is also discussed. On the basis of these results, we present a new model for the retinal binding site, which has important implications for the mechanism of the "opsin shift" observed in bacteriorhodopsin.
