The global fold of maltose binding protein in complex with beta-cyclodextrin has been determined using a CNS-based torsion angle molecular dynamics protocol involving direct refinement against dipolar couplings and carbonyl chemical shift changes that occur upon alignment. The shift changes have been included as structural restraints using a new module, CANI, that has been incorporated into CNS. Force constants and timesteps have been determined that are particularly effective in structure refinement applications involving high molecular weight proteins with small to moderate numbers of NOE restraints. Solution structures of the N- and C-domains of MBP calculated with this new protocol are within approximately 2 A of the X-ray conformation.
