Cystatins are cysteine proteases inhibitors that are widely distributed among insects, mammalians and plants. Here we report the complete resonance assignment of canecystatin-1 from Saccharum officinarum obtained by heteronuclear multidimensional high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The consensus chemical shift index was calculated and showed the presence of one α-helix (residues 27-43) and three β-strands (residues 48-74, 78-89 and 94-104), a secondary structure pattern that suggests a domain-swapped structure as presented by stefin B and human cystatin C, opposed to the monomeric structure yet found in other phytocystatins like oryza and pineapple cystatin.
