A1H-15N NMR study was performed on the GDP-bound form of a truncated human c-Ha-ras oncogene product (171 amino acid residues). Resonance cross peaks of the backbone amide1H-15N nuclei of a uniformly15N-labeled protein were observed with heteronuclear-single-quantum coherence spectroscopy (HSQC). In order to resolve overlapping cross peaks, selective15N-labeling of one or two types of amino acid residues (Ala, Arg, Asx, Glx, Gly, His, lie, Leu, Lys, Met, Phe, Ser; Thr, Tyr and/or Val) was carried out using appropriateE. coli mutant strains. By this procedure, all the backbone1H-15N cross peaks were classified into amino acid types.
