Unbiased artificial chemical shift data base
The unbiased artificial chemical shift data base (UACSB) was recalculated from the unbiased protein structural data base NH3D (Sillitoe et al., 2013). The structures with added protons were energy minimized in explicit water using the molecular dynamics program GROMACS (version 4.6.1) (Berendsen et al. 1995; Hess et al. 2008). The final energy minimized structure of each model was then used for a molecular dynamics simulation in explicit water. After equilibration, 400 ps trajectories have been calculated. 11 equidistant structures were extracted from these trajectories for creation of the UACSB database. Since stereospecifically defined atom names may change after energy minimization (bond rotation), it was checked again and if necessary corrected after minimization with the AUREMOL (Gronwald and Kalbitzer, 2004) tool IUPACify. Chemical shifts were calculated using SHIFTS (version 4.3) (Osapay and Case, 1991) or SHIFTX2 (version 1.04) (Neal et al., 2003). For details see Harsch et al. (2017).
