The isolated N-terminal SH3 domain of the Drosophila signal transduction protein Drk (drkN SH3) is a useful model for the study of residual structure and fluctuating structure in disordered proteins since it exists in slow exchange between a folded (F-exch) and compact unfolded (U-exch) state in roughly equal proportions under nondenaturing conditions. The single tryptophan residue, Trp36, is believed to play a key role in forming a non-native hydrophobic cluster in the U-exch state, with a number of long-range nuclear Overhauser contacts (NOEs) observed primarily to the indole proton. Substitution of Trp36 for 5-fluoro-Trp36 resulted in a substantial shift in the equilibrium to favor the F-exch state. A variety of F-19 NMR measurements were performed to investigate the degree of solvent exposure and hydrophobicity associated with the 5-fluoro position in both the F-exch and U-exch states. Ambient T-1 measurements and H2O/D2O solvent isotope effects indicated extensive protein contacts to the 5-fluoro position in the Fexch state and greater solvent exposure in the Uexch state. This was corroborated by the measurements of paramagnetic effects (chemical shift perturbations and T-1 relaxation enhancement) from dissolved oxygen at a partial pressure of 20 atm. In contrast, paramagnetic effects from dissolved oxygen revealed less solvent exposure to the indole proton of Trp36 in the Uexch state than that observed for the Fexch state, consistent with the model in which Trp36 indole belongs to a non-native cluster. Thus, although the Uexch state may be described as a dynamically interconverting ensemble of conformers, there appears to be significant asymmetry in the environment of the indole group and the six-membered ring or backbone of Trp36. This implied lack of averaging of a side chain position is in contrast to the general view of fluctuating side chains within disordered states.
