The cyanobacterial NDH-1 complex is involved in respiratory as well as in cyclic electron transfer around photosystem I. Here, we report both backbone and side chain chemical shift assignments of CupS, a small subunit of the multisubunit membrane protein complex NDH-1 from Thermosynechococcus elongatus. The construct contains 159 amino acids including a Strep-tag and two additional amino acids.
