The Davis et al., 1994 2-site off-resonance fast exchange relaxation dispersion model for R1rho-type data. It extends the M61 model to off-resonance data, hence it collapses to this model for on-resonance data. The model is labelled as DPL94 in relax.


[math] \mathrm{R}_{1\rho}= \mathrm{R}_1\cos^2\theta + \left( \mathrm{R}_{1\rho}{´} + \frac{\Phi_\textrm{ex} \textrm{k}_\textrm{ex}}{\textrm{k}_\textrm{ex}^2 + \omega_\textrm{e}^2} \right) \sin^2\theta [/math]


The DPL94 model has the parameters {R', ..., Φex, kex}.


Note  R1 should be provided in rad/s, the SI default unit for this relaxation rate.

It is essential to read in R1 values before starting a calculation:

relax_data.read(ri_id='R1', ri_type='R1', frq=cdp.spectrometer_frq_list[0], file='R1_values.txt', mol_name_col=1, res_num_col=2, res_name_col=3, spin_num_col=4, spin_name_col=5, data_col=6, error_col=7)

Where the data could be stored like

# mol_name    res_num    res_name    spin_num    spin_name    value   error   
None               13           L        None            N 1.323940 0.146870
None               15           R        None            N 1.344280 0.140560
None               16           T        None            N 1.715140 0.136510

  2. R = spin.r2eff (Back calculated)
  3. Φex = spin.phi_ex (Fitted)
  4. kex = spin.kex (Fitted)
  5. R1 = spin.ri_data['R1'] (Loaded)

It is clear that there is no real name for the pseudo-parameter. It looks like that Reff was Art's original way of denoting this and that he has now changed to R2 instead.
But if one look at the reference for the TP02 dispersion model, one will see yet another notation:

Here R2 does not contain the Rex contribution. Also, Reff is absent of Rex.
But in Art's Protein Science paper (Ref [5]), the definition R2 = R20 + Rex is used. The MP05 model reference also does not use Reff.

The Reff parameter name is confusing and it seems to have been dropped from 2005 onwards. The Reff name appears to be specific to Art Palmer's group and as he himself has dropped it, then it would be best to avoid it too.

Ref [2], Equation 27. Here the calculated value is noted as: R_eff: [math]R_{\text{eff}} = R^{0}_2 + R_{ex} = R_{1\rho}' + R_{ex} = R_{1\rho} / \sin^2(\theta) - R_1 / \tan^2(\theta)[/math]
Ref [3], Equation 20. Figure 11+16, would be the reference. Here the calculated value is noted as: R_2: [math]R_{2} = R_{1\rho} / \sin^2(\theta) - R_1 / \tan^2(\theta)[/math].
Ref [4], Equation 43. [math]R_{\text{eff}} = R_{1\rho} / \sin^2(\theta) - R_1 / \tan^2(\theta)[/math]
Ref [5], Material and Methods, page 740. Figure 4 would be the wished graphs. Here the calculated value is noted as: R_2: [math]R_{2} = R^{0}_2 + R_{ex}[/math]

The following suggestions for the definition of the pseudo-parameters, which can be extracted, is then

[math]R_2 = R^{0}_2 + R_{ex} = R_{1\rho}' + R_{ex} = R_{1\rho} / \sin^2(\theta) - R_1 / \tan^2(\theta) = \frac{R_{1\rho} - R_1\cos^2(\theta)}{\sin^2(\theta)}[/math]
