Natural abundance 13 C and high field 1 H NMR spectroscopy are used to characterize the major coat protein of the filamentous bacteriophage fd in sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles. Chemical shift dispersion of protein resonances, slow and differential exchange rates of amide protons, and relaxation parameters of the alpha carbons of the protein indicate that the detergent solubilized coat protein has a stable native conformation. The structure of the coat protein in micelles differs from that found for typical globular proteins in solution in that parts of the peptide backbone exhibit rapid segmental motion. © 1980.
