In this Communication, we introduce a 3D magic-angle spinning recoupling experiment that correlates chemical shift anisotropy (CSA) powder line shapes with two dimensions of site-resolved isotropic chemical shifts. The principal tensor elements from 127 ROCSA line shapes are reported, constraining 102 unique backbone and side-chain 13C sites in a microcrystalline protein (the 56 residue β1 immunoglobulin binding domain of protein G). The tensor elements, determined by fitting to numerical simulations, agree well with quantum chemical predictions. The experiments, therefore, validate calculations of CSAs in a protein of known structure. The data will be useful for the development of side-chain CSA quantum calculations and will aid in the design and interpretation of solution NMR experiments that utilize CSA-dipole cross-correlation to constrain torsion angles or to enhance resolution and sensitivity (such as in TROSY). Furthermore, the methodology described here will enable databases of CSA data to be generated with higher efficiency, for purposes of direct protein structure refinement.
