The following is a sample submission:
Name: Kevin Millis
Name of lab and institution where acquired: Rabenstein Lab, UCR
Year acquired: 1992
Brief sample description: Thioltransferase and GSH/GSSG in D2O, pD 7
Field strength (e.g., 400 MHz): 500 MHz
Why is this your favorite spectrum? The chemical exchange was just fast enough to see line-broadening in the GSSG cysteinyl methylene proton resonances. Line-broadening can be a beautiful thing as it allowed me to calculate a pseudo first-order rate constant.
Additional comments: I rode my bike several miles to a butcher’s shop to get the fresh pig liver that I used to isolate the enzyme. It took 3 days and 11 chromatography steps to get purified enzyme.
