Neural precursor cell-expressed, developmently downregulated 8 (NEDD8) is a small ubiquitin-like modifier, which plays important roles in many cellular processes. Although it has been well studied in many eukaryotes, NEDD8 is still uncharacterized in some unicellular parasites, such as Trypanosoma brucei (T. brucei). Here we report the resonance assignments of NEDD8 from T. brucei.
