Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spin-lattice (T−1 1 ) and spin-spin (T−1 2 ) relaxation rate mea- surements can act as e ective non-destructive probes of the nano-scale dynamics of 1H spins in porous media. In particular, fast- eld-cycling T−1 1 dispersion measurements contain information on the dynamics of di using spins over time scales spanning many orders of magnitude. Previously- published experimental T−1 1 dispersions from a plaster paste, synthetic saponite, mortar and oil- bearing shale are re-analysed using a model and associated theory which describe the relaxation rate contributions due to the interaction between spins ensembles in quasi-two-dimensional (Q2D) pores. Application of the model yields physically-meaningful di usion correlation times for all systems. In particular, the surface di usion correlation time and the surface desorption time take similar values for each system suggesting that surface ...

High-resolution magic angle spinning proton (HRMAS 1H) magnetic resonance spectroscopy produces well-resolved spectra of metabolites from intact tissue specimens. Here we report the results of a preliminary study of 19 human brain tumors obtained by applying this method. Among these 19 cases were 2 low-grade astrocytomas, 1 anaplastic astrocytoma, 8 glioblastomas, 6 meningiomas, and 2 schwannomas. In addition, autopsy human brain tissues from two subjects without any known neurological diseases were used as normal controls. The HRMAS 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy measurements were performed at 2°C on a 400-MHz NMR spectrometer with a HRMAS speed of 2.5 kHz. From these HRMAS 1H MR ...

*  High resolution proton nuclear magnetic resonance studies of human cerebrospinal fluid - WestminsterResearch
1. One- and two-dimensional (correlated shift spectroscopy) high resolution proton n.m.r. spectra of human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are reported. The merits of water suppression by freeze drying or irradiation, and spectral simplification by spin-echo methods, are discussed. 2. Well-resolved resonances for a range of low molecular weight metabolites such as lactate, 3-d-hydroxybutyrate, alanine, acetate, citrate, glucose, valine and formate were observed. Resonances for glutamine were observed only from freeze dried samples. Concentrations determined by n.m.r. were in reasonable agreement with those from conventional methods. 3. The n.m.r. spectra of CSF were related to the clinical conditions of the subjects. No resonances for citrate were present in spectra of CSF from subjects (three infants) with bacterial meningitis; high lactate and lowered glucose levels were observed. Strong ...

A method for determining intrinsic transverse relaxation time of a first mobile phase in a porous medium using nuclear magnetic resonance measurement sequences. The sequences are measured at first and second wait times. At least two different interecho spacing times are used for each wait time. The first and second wait time are selected to provide different magnetization recoveries of the first phase, and are selected to be longer than the longitudinal relaxation time of a second mobile phase. For the measurements made at the first interecho spacing time, components of signals in the measurements corresponding to the first phase are separated from components corresponding to the second mobile phase by determining differences between the signals measured at the first and at the second wait times. The step of separating is performed for each of the interecho spacing times. An apparent transverse relaxation time of the first mobile phase is ...

*  Human cardiac 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy at 7 Tesla. - Radcliffe Department of Medicine
PURPOSE: Phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((31)P-MRS) affords unique insight into cardiac energetics but has a low intrinsic signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in humans. Theory predicts an increased (31)P-MRS SNR at 7T, offering exciting possibilities to better investigate cardiac metabolism. We therefore compare the performance of human cardiac (31)P-MRS at 7T to 3T, and measure T1s for (31)P metabolites at 7T. METHODS: Matched (31)P-MRS data were acquired at 3T and 7T, on nine normal volunteers. A novel Look-Locker CSI acquisition and fitting approach was used to measure T1s on six normal volunteers. RESULTS: T1s in the heart at 7T were: phosphocreatine (PCr) 3.05 ± 0.41s, γ-ATP 1.82 ± 0.09s, α-ATP 1.39 ± 0.09s, β-ATP 1.02 ± 0.17s and 2,3-DPG (2,3-diphosphoglycerate) 3.05 ± 0.41s (N = 6).

Neutrophil-activating protein-2 (NAP-2) is a 72 residue protein demonstrating a range of proinflammatory activities. The solution structure of monomeric NAP-2 has been investigated by two-dimensional 1H-n.m.r. spectroscopy. Sequence-specific proton resonance assignments have been made and secondary structural elements have been identified on the basis of nuclear Overhauser data, coupling constants and amide hydrogen/deuteron exchange. The NAP-2 monomer consists of a triple-stranded anti-parallel beta-sheet arranged in a 'Greek key' and a C-terminal helix (residues 59-70) and is very similar to that found in the n.m.r. solution conformation of dimeric interleukin-8 and the crystal structure of tetrameric bovine platelet factor-4. Results are discussed in terms of heparin binding and neutrophil-activation properties of NAP-2. ...

*  Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of excised human hearts | Heart
Background-Phosphorus nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has been proposed as a method of studying the metabolism of the myocardium in patients. Little is known about 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of diseased human hearts.. Methods-Two donor hearts meeting the requirements for heart transplantation and 11 diseased hearts were removed during a transplantation procedure and were studied in a horizontal 2·35 T superconducting magnet. Spectra were obtained at 0°C about 30 minutes after the excision. The areas of the inorganic phosphate peak (Pi) and of the phosphocreatine peak (PCr) were summed and expressed as a ratio with respect to the area of the β ATP peak..

The lactose transport protein (LacS) from Streptococcus thermophilus bearing a single cysteine mutation, K373C, within the putative interhelix loop 10-11 has been overexpressed in native membranes. Cross-polarization magic-angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) could selectively distinguish binding of (13)C-labeled substrate to just 50-60 nmol of LacS(K373C) in the native fluid membranes. Nitroxide electron spin-label at the K373C location was essentially immobile on the time scale of both conventional electron spin resonance spectroscopy (ESR) (|10(-8)s) and saturation-transfer ESR (|10(-3)s), under the same conditions as used in the NMR studies. The presence of the nitroxide spin-label effectively obscured the high-resolution NMR signal from bound substrate, even though (13)C-labeled substrate was shown to be within the binding center of the protein. The interhelix loop 10-11 is ...

In vivo 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy was used to monitor the time course of intracellular pH in cat cerebral cortex subjected to global cerebral ischemia under control and hyperglycemic pretreatment conditions. Transient (16 minutes) global cerebral ischemia was induced in 14 cats using an inflatable cervical cuff combined with systemic arterial hypotension. Six cats were pretreated with infusion of 1.5 g/kg glucose prior to ischemia. Relative concentrations of high-energy phosphate metabolites and intracellular pH were continuously monitored before, during, and for 2 hours after cerebral reperfusion. During ischemia, intracellular pH fell to the same level and followed a similar time course in both groups. However, during initial reperfusion in the hyperglycemic group, there was a severe further decline (p less than 0.003) in intracellular pH. We suggest that the increased neurologic deficit and mortality found in hyperglycemic ...

Background Research exploring Bipolar Disorder (BD) phenotypes and mitochondrial dysfunction, particularly in younger subjects, has been insufficient to date. Previous studies have found abnormal cerebral pH levels in adults with BD, which may be directly linked to abnormal mitochondrial activity. To date no such studies have been reported in children with BD. Methods Phosphorus Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (31P MRS) was used to determine pH, phopshocreatine (PCr) and inorganic phosphate (Pi) levels in 8 subjects with BD and 8 healthy comparison subjects (HCS) ages 11 to 20 years old. Results There was no significant difference in pH between the patients and HCS. However, frontal pH values for patients with BD increased with age, contrary to studies of HCS and the pH values in the frontal lobe correlated negatively with the YMRS values. Global Pi was significantly lower in subjects with BD compared ...
