Abstract

It is shown that a simple model for anisotropic rotations of membrane constituents can predict the angular dependence of the R1Z relaxation rates of cholesterol labelled with 2H at different ring positions. The results suggest that a general formalism is possible for the contributions from molecular motions to the nuclear spin relaxation rates.
