Two-dimensional NMR methods have been used to assign aromatic and methyl group resonances in the 1H-NMR spectrum of oxidized uteroglobin. Assignments to specific amino acids are based on X-ray-determined structures of two crystal forms (C222(1) and P2(1] and on an energy-minimized X-ray structure of the C222(1) form of uteroglobin. These preliminary assignments are sufficient to probe the interaction of oxidized uteroglobin with progesterone in solution. The protein global structure is unmodified but some direct or indirect conformational changes are induced in the H1H4(H1’H4′) pockets and close to Phe28 by progesterone.
