The Structural Biology department at the Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) within the Forschungsverbund Berlin E.V. (FVB) has considerable experience in Structural Biology on protein domains which mediate peptide-protein interactions, in the investigation of large proteins, membrane proteins and in particular in solid-state NMR of proteins. The groups published a structure of a protein larger than 40 kDa, a first high-resolution structure of an active centre of a membrane protein, and the first solid-state NMR structure of a protein. The groups have further contributed with several new structures of non-crystallizing systems determined by solid-state NMR, including alphaB-crystallin, various fibrils, and the needle of a bacterial secretion system. It has considerable expertise in labelling and large-scale protein production for Structural Genomics applications. In the course of methods development projects a setup for automated solid-state NMR data acquisition has been generated.
