To understand the relationship between structural properties of the β2-adrenoceptor ligands and their interactions with membranes, we have investigated the location and distribution of five β2 agonists with distinct clinical durations and onsets of action (indacaterol, two indacaterol analogues, salmeterol and formoterol) in monounsaturated model membranes using magic angle spinning NMR to measure these interactions through both 1H nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE) and paramagnetic relaxation enhancement (PRE) techniques. The hydrophilic aromatic groups of all five β2 agonists show maximum distribution in the lipid/water interface, but distinct location and dynamic behavior were observed for the lipophilic aromatic rings. Our study elucidates at atomic level that the hydrophobicity and substitution geometry of lipophilic groups play important roles in compound–lipid interactions.
