Crystal structure of MHC class II-associated p41 Ii fragment bound to cathepsin L reveals the structural basis for differentiation between cathepsins L and S. (1/22435)

The lysosomal cysteine proteases cathepsins S and L play crucial roles in the degradation of the invariant chain during maturation of MHC class II molecules and antigen processing. The p41 form of the invariant chain includes a fragment which specifically inhibits cathepsin L but not S. The crystal structure of the p41 fragment, a homologue of the thyroglobulin type-1 domains, has been determined at 2.0 A resolution in complex with cathepsin L. The structure of the p41 fragment demonstrates a novel fold, consisting of two subdomains, each stabilized by disulfide bridges. The first subdomain is an alpha-helix-beta-strand arrangement, whereas the second subdomain has a predominantly beta-strand arrangement. The wedge shape and three-loop arrangement of the p41 fragment bound to the active site cleft of cathepsin L are reminiscent of the inhibitory edge of cystatins, thus demonstrating the first example of convergent evolution observed in cysteine protease inhibitors. However, the different fold of the p41 fragment results in additional contacts with the top of the R-domain of the enzymes, which defines the specificity-determining S2 and S1' substrate-binding sites. This enables inhibitors based on the thyroglobulin type-1 domain fold, in contrast to the rather non-selective cystatins, to exhibit specificity for their target enzymes.  (+info)

Structural basis of profactor D activation: from a highly flexible zymogen to a novel self-inhibited serine protease, complement factor D. (2/22435)

The crystal structure of profactor D, determined at 2.1 A resolution with an Rfree and an R-factor of 25.1 and 20.4%, respectively, displays highly flexible or disordered conformation for five regions: N-22, 71-76, 143-152, 187-193 and 215-223. A comparison with the structure of its mature serine protease, complement factor D, revealed major conformational changes in the similar regions. Comparisons with the zymogen-active enzyme pairs of chymotrypsinogen, trypsinogen and prethrombin-2 showed a similar distribution of the flexible regions. However, profactor D is the most flexible of the four, and its mature enzyme displays inactive, self-inhibited active site conformation. Examination of the surface properties of the N-terminus-binding pocket indicates that Ile16 may play the initial positioning role for the N-terminus, and Leu17 probably also helps in inducing the required conformational changes. This process, perhaps shared by most chymotrypsinogen-like zymogens, is followed by a factor D-unique step, the re-orientation of an external Arg218 to an internal position for salt-bridging with Asp189, leading to the generation of the self-inhibited factor D.  (+info)

Crystal structure of an MHC class I presented glycopeptide that generates carbohydrate-specific CTL. (3/22435)

T cell receptor (TCR) recognition of nonpeptidic and modified peptide antigens has been recently uncovered but is still poorly understood. Immunization with an H-2Kb-restricted glycopeptide RGY8-6H-Gal2 generates a population of cytotoxic T cells that express both alpha/beta TCR, specific for glycopeptide, and gamma/delta TCR, specific for the disaccharide, even on glycolipids. The crystal structure of Kb/RGY8-6H-Gal2 now demonstrates that the peptide and H-2Kb structures are unaffected by the peptide glycosylation, but the central region of the putative TCR binding site is dominated by the extensive exposure of the tethered carbohydrate. These features of the Kb/RGY8-6H-Gal2 structure are consistent with the individual ligand binding preferences identified for the alpha/beta and gamma/delta TCRs and thus explain the generation of a carbohydrate-specific T cell response.  (+info)

Crystal structures of two H-2Db/glycopeptide complexes suggest a molecular basis for CTL cross-reactivity. (4/22435)

Two synthetic O-GlcNAc-bearing peptides that elicit H-2Db-restricted glycopeptide-specific cytotoxic T cells (CTL) have been shown to display nonreciprocal patterns of cross-reactivity. Here, we present the crystal structures of the H-2Db glycopeptide complexes to 2.85 A resolution or better. In both cases, the glycan is solvent exposed and available for direct recognition by the T cell receptor (TCR). We have modeled the complex formed between the MHC-glycopeptide complexes and their respective TCRs, showing that a single saccharide residue can be accommodated in the standard TCR-MHC geometry. The models also reveal a possible molecular basis for the observed cross-reactivity patterns of the CTL clones, which appear to be influenced by the length of the CDR3 loop and the nature of the immunizing ligand.  (+info)

Structure of CD94 reveals a novel C-type lectin fold: implications for the NK cell-associated CD94/NKG2 receptors. (5/22435)

The crystal structure of the extracellular domain of CD94, a component of the CD94/NKG2 NK cell receptor, has been determined to 2.6 A resolution, revealing a unique variation of the C-type lectin fold. In this variation, the second alpha helix, corresponding to residues 102-112, is replaced by a loop, the putative carbohydrate-binding site is significantly altered, and the Ca2+-binding site appears nonfunctional. This structure may serve as a prototype for other NK cell receptors such as Ly-49, NKR-P1, and CD69. The CD94 dimer observed in the crystal has an extensive hydrophobic interface that stabilizes the loop conformation of residues 102-112. The formation of this dimer reveals a putative ligand-binding region for HLA-E and suggests how NKG2 interacts with CD94.  (+info)

Melatonin biosynthesis: the structure of serotonin N-acetyltransferase at 2.5 A resolution suggests a catalytic mechanism. (6/22435)

Conversion of serotonin to N-acetylserotonin, the precursor of the circadian neurohormone melatonin, is catalyzed by serotonin N-acetyltransferase (AANAT) in a reaction requiring acetyl coenzyme A (AcCoA). AANAT is a globular protein consisting of an eight-stranded beta sheet flanked by five alpha helices; a conserved motif in the center of the beta sheet forms the cofactor binding site. Three polypeptide loops converge above the AcCoA binding site, creating a hydrophobic funnel leading toward the cofactor and serotonin binding sites in the protein interior. Two conserved histidines not found in other NATs are located at the bottom of the funnel in the active site, suggesting a catalytic mechanism for acetylation involving imidazole groups acting as general acid/base catalysts.  (+info)

Structural basis of multidrug recognition by BmrR, a transcription activator of a multidrug transporter. (7/22435)

Multidrug-efflux transporters demonstrate an unusual ability to recognize multiple structurally dissimilar toxins. A comparable ability to bind diverse hydrophobic cationic drugs is characteristic of the Bacillus subtilis transcription regulator BmrR, which upon drug binding activates expression of the multidrug transporter Bmr. Crystal structures of the multidrug-binding domain of BmrR (2.7 A resolution) and of its complex with the drug tetraphenylphosphonium (2.8 A resolution) revealed a drug-induced unfolding and relocation of an alpha helix, which exposes an internal drug-binding pocket. Tetraphenylphosphonium binding is mediated by stacking and van der Waals contacts with multiple hydrophobic residues of the pocket and by an electrostatic interaction between the positively charged drug and a buried glutamate residue, which is the key to cation selectivity. Similar binding principles may be used by other multidrug-binding proteins.  (+info)

Structural basis of Rab effector specificity: crystal structure of the small G protein Rab3A complexed with the effector domain of rabphilin-3A. (8/22435)

The small G protein Rab3A plays an important role in the regulation of neurotransmitter release. The crystal structure of activated Rab3A/GTP/Mg2+ bound to the effector domain of rabphilin-3A was solved to 2.6 A resolution. Rabphilin-3A contacts Rab3A in two distinct areas. The first interface involves the Rab3A switch I and switch II regions, which are sensitive to the nucleotide-binding state of Rab3A. The second interface consists of a deep pocket in Rab3A that interacts with a SGAWFF structural element of rabphilin-3A. Sequence and structure analysis, and biochemical data suggest that this pocket, or Rab complementarity-determining region (RabCDR), establishes a specific interaction between each Rab protein and its effectors. RabCDRs could be major determinants of effector specificity during vesicle trafficking and fusion.  (+info)

Written by Tatjana Barthel Macromolecular Crystallography group at BESSY II). The outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 pushed all of us into a very complicated situation, especially with strict regulations and certain lockdown periods. Performing science became challenging in these last weeks, but at the same time it is of great importance in order to fight the virus. In the development of drugs against SARS-CoV-2 X-ray crystallography plays a key role.. One field of X-ray crystallography is protein crystallography. Proteins can form crystals just as small molecules, metals and salts. The array of ordered protein molecules inside a protein crystal leaves gaps that are filled by disordered solvent molecules, i.e. mostly water. These so called solvent channels enable small molecules to enter the protein crystals and reach the individual protein molecules. Thus, protein crystals can be used for drug development, by probing them with small molecules in order to find out if and how the molecules bind to the ...

X-ray crystallography is a technique used by biochemist to determine the three dimensional structure of an enzyme, protein, molecule, etc. Although the technique requires the molecule to be able to be crystallized it has helped scientist discover how drugs can prevent certain enzyme from reacting. By determining the three dimensional structure of the protein or enzyme scientists can determine how enzyme folds and binds. From that information, scientists can design certain drugs that only stop that enzyme. For example, scientists used x-ray crystallography to determine the structure of the COX enzyme that is responsible for arthritis. Now that the scientists know the three dimensional structure of the COX enzyme, they can create drugs that would be able to stop it, such as aspirin. Therefore X-ray crystallography is a powerful tool that biochemist and scientists can use to discover new drugs that can prevent certain enzymes from activating.. ...

I just finished reading your oped article on reproducibility in science. As an experimental scientist - more precisely a chemical crystallographer - I have had to deal with this kind of situation a number of times, and at least two examples may serve as the possible exceptions to your rules.. One of the beauties of x-ray crystallography is the internal self-consistent confirmation of the result of an x-ray crystal structure determination. X-ray crystal structure determinations are today used (increasing required by journals) as essentially absolute proof of the molecular structure of a new compound. With the result of a determination there is no doubt that the crystal from which the data were obtained contained molecules with the composition and structure that can be represented by a three dimensional ball and stick model. There occasionally are some problems with measurements and refinements of structures, but they are a very, very small fraction of the mass of crystal structures (now nearing ...
where Nall is the total number of atoms and Npeak is the number of atoms which contain one or more peaks within 2.2 Å of the atom.. In order to analyse the effect of X-ray resolution, m,Fo, − D,Fc, electron-density maps were generated at five different resolutions as follows. The same X-ray refinements as those in the above procedure were performed for DNA crystal structures solved at a resolution equal to or better than 2.5 Å. The m,Fo, − D,Fc, map was calculated at 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 1.9 and 2.5 Å resolution for data of ≤1.0, 1.0-1.25, 1.25-1.5, 1.5-1.9 and 1.9-2.5 Å resolution, respectively. A search was made for peaks in the maps in the same way as above.. In this study, the r.m.s. of densities (σ) was used to distinguish peaks from noise. The density of electrons (e Å−3) can also be used and this different measure might give a different result. We then investigated the variation of electron density corresponding to 1σ in the electron-density maps. Supplementary Fig. S2 shows the ...
X-ray crystallography is the major method for structure determination of macromolecules. About 85% of all known structures deposited in the Protein Data Bank have been determined by X-ray crystallography. Knowing the structure of a protein helps in understanding better how the protein works, how it interacts with other proteins and small molecules in the cell and what kind of conformational changes it undergoes to exert its function. Even subtle changes in protein structures can have tremendous consequences on human health, causing serious diseases. A major application therefore of X-ray crystallography is in the design of new drugs.. A crystal structure determination is not a trivial task. It mainly involves five steps with the first two being the most difficult (bottlenecks):. ...
1GNR: X-ray crystal structure analysis of the catalytic domain of the oncogene product p21H-ras complexed with caged GTP and mant dGppNHp.
ABSTRACT. High-throughput crystallography requires a method by which the structures of proteins can be determined quickly and easily. Experimental phasing is an essential technique in determining the three-dimensional protein structures using single-crystal X-ray diffraction. In macromolecular crystallography, the phases are derived either by Molecular Replacement (MR) method using the atomic coordinates of a structurally similar protein or by locating the positions of heavy atoms that are intrinsic to the protein or that have been added (MIR, MIRAS, SIR, SIRAS, MAD and SAD). Availability of in-house lab data collection sources (Cu Kα and Cr Kα radiation), cryo-crystallography and improved software for heavy atom location and density modification have increased the ability to solve protein structures using SAD. SAD phasing using intrinsic anomalous scatterers like sulfur, chlorine, calcium, manganese and zinc, which are already present in the protein becomes increasingly attractive owing to ...

The conjugative transfer of F-like plasmids is repressed by FinO, an RNAbinding protein. FinO interacts with the F-plasmid encoded traJ mRNA andits antisense RNA, FinP, stabilizing FinP against endonucleolyticdegradation and facilitating sense-antisense RNA recognition. Here wepresent the 2.0 A resolution X-ray crystal structure of FinO, lacking itsflexible N-terminal extension. FinO adopts a novel, elongated, largelyhelical conformation. An N-terminal region, previously shown to contactRNA, forms a positively charged alpha-helix (helix 1) that protrudes 45 Afrom the central core of FinO. A C-terminal region of FinO that isimplicated in RNA interactions also extends out from the central body ofthe protein, adopting a helical conformation and packing against the baseof the N-terminal helix. A highly positively charged patch on the surfaceof the FinO core may present another RNA binding surface. The results ofan in vitro RNA duplexing assay demonstrate that the flexible N-terminalregion of FinO ...

Why this is my favorite X-ray crystal structure: The beautiful, strikingly unique structure of B-rhombohedral boron has successfully withstood numerous challenges of its correctness and has for a half century experienced nearly constant investigations of its structurally implied material characteristics. Arguably the most important of the several known phases of elemental boron, this form has been found to be experimentally stable from absolute zero to its melting point. Detailed consideration of the 5-foldness of its numerous discrete and merged 12-atom regular icosahedral motifs and their extended 84-atom truncated icosahedral arrays has forced a significant modification of chemical bonding theory in attempts to explain the low density, high strength, high melting, semiconducting and other notable properties of this low atomic number element. Even the observed partial occupancy of one of its 6-fold Wyckoff sets of atoms within the structure appears to be correct and to imply intriguing ...
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Phaser is a program for phasing macromolecular crystal structures by both molecular replacement and experimental phasing methods. The novel phasing algorithms implemented in Phaser have been developed using maximum likelihood and multivariate statistics. For molecular replacement, the new algorithms have proved to be significantly better than traditional methods in discriminating correct solutions from noise, and for single-wavelength anomalous dispersion experimental phasing, the new algorithms, which account for correlations between F + and F, give better phases (lower mean phase error with respect to the phases given by the refined structure) than those that use mean F and anomalous differences F. One of the design concepts of Phaser was that it be capable of a high degree of automation. To this end, Phaser (written in C++) can be called directly from Python, although it can also be called using traditional CCP4 keyword

The Alber lab at UC Berkeley is pleased to release of the code for Ringer version 1.0 (http://ucxray.berkeley.edu/ringer.htm), which depends on Chimera. Ringer is a program to detect molecular motions by systematic X-ray electron-density sampling. The aim of Ringer is to go beyond static structural snapshots of proteins by uncovering structural ensembles in X-ray electron density. This information can reveal not only which parts of proteins are flexible and which parts are rigid, but it also can define alternate conformations that may be important for function. Alternate conformations of binding sites also may afford additional targets for drug design. The Ringer method is described in Lang et al. /Protein Sci/. 2010 Jul; 19(7):1420-31 ,http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20499387,. An application of Ringer, determining the structural underpinnings of the side chain dynamics critical for the function of the enzyme proline isomerase, was published in Fraser JS et al. /Nature/. 2009 Dec ...

The 220 kDa dimeric cytochrome b6f complex of oxygenic photosynthesis provides the electronic connection between the two reaction centers, Photosystems I and II that are, respectively, coupled to NADP+ reduction and oxygen evolution. The electron transport functions of the b6f complex are coupled to proton transfer and generation of a trans-membrane proton electrochemical gradient, by mechanisms similar to those of the cytochrome bc1 complex of the respiratory chain and the photosynthetic bacteria, whose protein core is similar to that of the b6f complex. Prior to X-ray crystal structure analysis, each monomeric unit of the complex was known to contain six bound prosthetic groups, three hemes (f, two hemes b, bp and bn), one [2Fe-2S] cluster, and one molecule each of chlorophyll-a and carotene. Crystal structure analysis of the b6f complex from a green alga and a thermophilic cyanobacterium revealed the presence of an additional heme cn in the complex, which is covalently bound on the ...
ATP synthase is a membrane-bound rotary motor enzyme that is critical for cellular energy metabolism in all kingdoms of life. Despite conservation of its basic structure and function, autoinhibition by one of its rotary stalk subunits occurs in bacteria and chloroplasts but not in mitochondria. The crystal structure of the ATP synthase catalytic complex (F(1)) from Escherichia coli described here reveals the structural basis for this inhibition. The C-terminal domain of subunit ɛ adopts a heretofore unknown, highly extended conformation that inserts deeply into the central cavity of the enzyme and engages both rotor and stator subunits in extensive contacts that are incompatible with functional rotation. As a result, the three catalytic subunits are stabilized in a set of conformations and rotational positions distinct from previous F(1) structures.. ...

The grant, from the Wellcome Trust, will enable the department to purchase a state-of-the-art CCD X-ray detector which it has had on loan from the manufacturers Bruker AXS for the past 3 years.. X-ray crystallography is the most widely-used method for solving the 3D structure of proteins. During the procedure, the X-rays are scattered by crystals of the protein and their pattern provides information about the shape of the molecule. The X-rays are detected using a highly efficient CCD detector.. The detector which has been on loan to the department is fast, efficient and easy to use. It has already enabled researchers to solve the structures of many important biomedical proteins including those involved in pathogen virulence, antibiotic biosynthesis, the cell division cycle and oxygen sensing.. In addition to high quality equipment, the X-ray facility relies on the support of the Facilities Manager, Dr Ed Lowe. Dr Lowe provides high level training and assistance to all users and maintains the ...

We describe the self-assembly of a DNA crystal that contains two tensegrity triangle molecules per asymmetric unit. We have used X-ray crystallography to determine its crystal structure. In addition, we have demonstrated control over the colors of the crystals by attaching either Cy3 dye (pink) or Cy5 dye (blue-green) to the components of the crystal, yielding crystals of corresponding colors. Attaching the pair of dyes to the pair of molecules yields a purple crystal. ...

The malfunction of the transcriptional regulator RUNX1 is the major cause of several variants of acute human leukemias and its normal function is to regulate the development of the blood system in concert with other transcriptional co-regulators. RUNX1 belongs to a conserved family of heterodimeric transcription factors that share a conserved DNA binding domain, the Runt domain (RD), named after the first member of this group - Runt - found in Drosophila melanogaster. The binding partner CBFβ serves as a regulator of RUNX by enhancing its DNA binding affinity through an allosteric mechanism.. The main focus ofo my thesis work has been the crystallization and structural analysis of the RUNX1 RD and involved also more technical methodological aspects that can be applied to X-ray crystallography in general.. The high resolution crystal structure of the free RD shows that this immunoglobulin-like molecule undergoes significant structural changes upon binding to both CBFβ and DNA. This involves a ...

The structure of the intact ATP synthase from the α-proteobacterium Paracoccus denitrificans, inhibited by its natural regulatory ζ-protein, has been solved by X-ray crystallography at 4.0 Å resolution. The ζ-protein is bound via its N-terminal α-helix in a catalytic interface in the F1 domain. The bacterial F1 domain is attached to the membrane domain by peripheral and central stalks. The δ-subunit component of the peripheral stalk binds to the N-terminal regions of two α-subunits. The stalk extends via two parallel long α-helices, one in each of the related b and b′ subunits, down a noncatalytic interface of the F1 domain and interacts in an unspecified way with the a-subunit in the membrane domain. The a-subunit lies close to a ring of 12 c-subunits attached to the central stalk in the F1 domain, and, together, the central stalk and c-ring form the enzymes rotor. Rotation is driven by the transmembrane proton-motive force, by a mechanism where protons pass through the interface ...

Here, we present four crystal structures of Cv-ωTA: two in the apo form, one in the holo form and one in an intermediate state, at resolutions between 1.35 and 2.4 Å. The enzyme is a homodimer with a molecular weight of approximately 100 kDa. Each monomer has an active site at the dimeric interface that involves amino acid residues from both subunits. The apo-Cv-ωTA structure reveals unique relaxed conformations of three critical loops involved in structuring the active site, that have not previously been seen in a transaminase. Analysis of the four crystal structures reveals major structural rearrangements involving elements of the large and small domains of both monomers that reorganize the active site in the presence of PLP.

The crystal structure of the mineral tinticite has been solved by direct methods from integrated intensities of X-ray powder diffraction data and subsequently refined with the Rietveld technique. The sample used for the structure solution comes from the Gavá-Bruguers area (20 km SW of Barcelona), which contains a large variety of phosphates, some of which were exploited in gallery mines during the ancient neolithic. Tinticite crystallizes in the triclinic space group P1̄ with unit cell parameters a = 7.965(2) Å, b = 9.999(2) Å, c = 7.644(2) Å, α = 103.94(2)°, β = 115.91(2)°, ω = 67.86(2)° and cell content Fe3+5.34(PO4)3.62(VO4)0.38(OH)4·6.7 H2O; ρexp = 2.94 g/cm3; ρcale = 2.88 g/cm3. The Rietveld refinement of the data set converged to Rwp = 13.1 % and χ2 = 3.3. Due to the complexity of the disorder in this structure, the refined structure model could only account for part of it. The octahedrally coordinated Fe3+ ions form dreier single chains of general formula ∞1[Fe3O14] ...
Two different crystal forms of human thioredoxin peroxidase-B have been grown by vapour diffusion using polyethylene glycol 400 as a precipitant. Monoclinic P21 crystals were grown from freshly purified protein, whilst orthorhombic P212121 crystals were grown from purified protein that had been stored in ammonium sulfate, but otherwise under the same conditions. The diffraction from both crystal forms was observed to extend to beyond 2.0 A resolution using synchrotron radiation. Complete native data sets to 1.8 and 3. 7 A have been collected from the monoclinic and orthorhombic crystals, respectively.
Protein crystals are almost always grown in solution. The most common approach is to lower the solubility of its component molecules very gradually; if this is done too quickly, the molecules will precipitate from solution, forming a useless dust or amorphous gel on the bottom of the container. Crystal growth in solution is characterized by two steps: nucleation of a microscopic crystallite (possibly having only 100 molecules), followed by growth of that crystallite, ideally to a diffraction-quality crystal.[103] The solution conditions that favor the first step (nucleation) are not always the same conditions that favor the second step (subsequent growth). The crystallographers goal is to identify solution conditions that favor the development of a single, large crystal, since larger crystals offer improved resolution of the molecule. Consequently, the solution conditions should disfavor the first step (nucleation) but favor the second (growth), so that only one large crystal forms per droplet. ...

A novel metal-organic planar NiS4 - type complex, trans-Ni(II)-bis[O-(2-butoxyethyl)-(4-methoxyphenyl)dithiophosphonate], was synthesized by the reaction of ammonium salt of O-dithiophosphonic acid with Ni(CH3COO)(2). The crystal structure of Ni(II)-complex was determined by X-ray Diffraction (XRD) analysis. As a result of the X-ray crystal and molecule structure analyses of the studied trans-Ni(II)-complex, it was obtained that the central nickel atom is coordinated by four sulphur atoms in slightly distorted a square-planar geometry. The X-ray structure confirms a trans isomer of the Ni(II)complex. The Ni(II)-complex crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C12/c1 with unit cell parameters a 22.376(3) (angstrom), b 18.466(3) (angstrom) and c 8.6875(13) (angstrom). In addition, theoretical calculations with the basis set of B3LYP/6-311 + G(2d,p) are performed to determine the structural properties, FT-IR, NMR spectrum, electronic properties and NBO analysis of the compound.

Amino acid sequence relates HPBP to an intriguing protein family that seems ubiquitous in eukaryotes. These proteins, named DING according to the sequence of their four conserved N-terminal residues, are systematically absent from eukaryotic genome databases. As a consequence, HPBP amino acids sequence had to be first assigned from the electronic density map. Then, an original approach combining X-ray crystallography and mass spectrometry provides the complete and a ...
New Phasing HomeLab™ Solutions for Protein Crystallography Structure Determination Using Enhanced Anomalous Scattering Signals 642046618
Electron crystallography is a method to determine the arrangement of atoms in solids using an electron microscope. It can complement X-ray crystallography on proteins, such as membrane proteins, that cannot easily form the large 3-dimensional crystals required for that process. Structures are usually determined from either 2-dimensional crystals (sheets or helices), polyhedrons such as viral capsids, or dispersed individual proteins. Electrons can be used in these situations, whereas X-rays cannot, because electrons interact more strongly with atoms than X-rays do. Thus, X-rays will travel through a thin 2-dimensional crystal without diffracting significantly, whereas electrons can be used to form an image. Conversely, the strong interaction between electrons and proteins makes thick (e.g. 3-dimensional) crystals impervious to electrons, which only penetrate short distances. One of the main difficulties in X-ray crystallography is determining phases in the diffraction pattern. Because no X-ray ...

PqqB lacks two residues in the conserved signature motif HxHxDH that makes up the key metal-chelating elements that can bind up to two metal ions at the active site of MBLs and other members of its superfamily. Here, we report crystal structures of PqqB bound to Mn2+, Mg2+, Cu2+, and Zn2+. These structures demonstrate that PqqB can still bind metal ions at the canonical MBL active site. The fact that PqqB can adapt its side chains to chelate a wide spectrum of metal ions with different coordination features on a uniform main chain ...
Single crystals of CaGeO3 garnet were synthesized at 3 GPa and 1000 °C using a cubic anvil type of high pressure apparatus and the crystal structure was refined from single crystal X-ray diffraction data. This garnet is tetragonal with lattice parameters of a = 12.535(2) Å, c = 12.370(2) Å, V = 1943.5(5) Å3 and belongs to space group I41/a. Two dodecahedral sites are occupied only by Ca with mean Ca-O bond lengths of 2.480(4) and 2.467(4) Å. The Ca and Ge cations are completely ordered at two octahedral sites with mean Ca-O = 2.301(3) Å and mean Ge-O = 1.910(3) Å. Three tetrahedral sites are occupied only by Ge, and their mean Ge-O bond lengths are 1.753(3), 1.787(4), and 1.764(4) Å. Furthermore, the present tetragonal garnet has an unusual feature in that the mean value [2.704(5) Å] of the shared edge lengths of GeO6 octahedron is larger than that [2.699(5) Å] of the unshared ones, as has also been observed for other tetragonal garnets with I41/a. ...
Serine-rich repeat proteins (SRRPs) belong to a growing family of bacterial adhesins required for biofilm formation and pathogenesis. Fap1 from Streptococcus parasanguinis is the first SRRP identified. A number of genes involved in Fap1 glycosylation have been characterized. Glycosyltransferases Gtf1, Gtf2 and Gtf3 catalyze the first and second steps of Fap1 glycosylation. A glycosyltransferase, GalT1, catalyzes the third step of Fap1 glycosylation. At the N-terminus of GalT1, there is a domain of unknown function 1792 (DUF1792) that is highly conserved in bacteria and may constitute a broad protein superfamily, however its function is unknown. Objective: Solve 3-D structure of DUF1792 to determine the function of the domain Method: The recombinant DUF1792 protein was purified via Ni2+ affinity chromatography and gel filtration.

The common goal for structural genomic centers and consortiums is to decipher as quickly as possible the three-dimensional structures for a multitude of recombinant proteins derived from known genomic sequences. Since X-ray crystallography is the foremost method to acquire atomic resolution for macromolecules, the limiting step is obtaining protein crystals that can be useful of structure determination. High-throughput methods have been developed in recent years to clone, express, purify, crystallize and determine the three-dimensional structure of a protein gene product rapidly using automated devices, commercialized kits and consolidated protocols. However, the average number of protein structures obtained for most structural genomic groups has been very low compared to the total number of proteins purified. As more entire genomic sequences are obtained for different organisms from the three kingdoms of life, only the proteins that can be crystallized and whose structures can be obtained ...

The structure of the synthetic deoxyoctamer d(GGIGCTCC) has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction techniques to a resolution of 1.7A. The sequence crystallises in space group P6(1), with unit cell dimensions a = b = 45.07, c = 45.49A. The refinement converged with a crystallographic residual R = 0.14 and the location of 81 solvent molecules. The octamer forms an A-DNA duplex with 6 Watson-Crick (G.C) base pairs and 2 inosine-thymine (I.T) pairs. Refinement of the structure shows it to be essentially isomorphous with that reported for d(GGGGCTCC) with the mispairs adopting a wobble conformation. Conformational parameters and base stacking interactions are compared to those for the native duplex d(GGGGCCCC) and other similar sequences. A rationale for the apparent increased crystal packing efficiency and lattice stability of the I.T octamer is given.

In this workshop we will discuss many tenets of successful crystallization for both conventional and serial crystallography. Many topics will be covered including fundamentals of crystal growth, strategies to sample crystallization space, identifying crystal hits, electron microscopy applications of crystal analysis, practical considerations for data analysis, difficult crystallization problems, virus crystallography, and an overview of serial crystallography.
Ranasmurfin, a previously uncharacterized similar to 13 kDa blue protein found in the nests of the frog Polypedates leucomystax, has been purified and crystallized. The crystals are an intense blue colour and diffract to 1.51 angstrom with P2(1) symmetry and unit-cell parameters a = 40.9, b = 59.9, c = 45.0 angstrom, beta = 93.3 degrees. Self-rotation function analysis indicates the presence of a dimer in the asymmetric unit. Biochemical data suggest that the blue colour of the protein is related to dimer formation.

Tup1cΔ crystals were grown by hanging‐drop vapor diffusion by mixing an equal volume of protein and reservoir solution containing 50‐100 mM bis‐Tris propane pH 9, 0‐50 mM NaCl, 23‐26% (w/v) polyethylene glycol 6000 and 2 mM dithiothreitol or 1 mM BMS, and allowing the drop to equilibrate with the reservoir at 20°C. Crystals grew to an average size of 0.1 × 0.1 × 1 mm in ∼1 week. Native crystals were transferred to a drop containing well solution immediately prior to data collection. Heavy‐atom derivatives were prepared by soaking crystals in a solution containing 50 mM bis‐Tris propane pH 9 and 24% (w/v) PEG 6000 with the heavy‐atom reagent (0.5 mM EMTS for 12 h, 1 mM KAu(CN)2 for 22 h or 0.5 mM PIP for 12 h). Data were collected at room temperature on a RAXIS IIc detector equipped with a rotating‐anode Rigaku RU‐200 generator with CuKα radiation. Attempts to cryocool the crystals at −180°C were unsuccessful. All data were integrated and reduced using the ...
Mpr1 is an enzyme that catalyzes the N‐acetylation of the toxic l‐azetidine‐2‐carboxylic acid (AZC). Recently, Mpr1 has been shown to reduce levels of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) under oxidative stress. The natural substrate involved in the ROS elimination in vivo is still unknown. Mpr1 has been purified and crystallized in space groups P1 and P3112. X‐ray data were collected to 1.9 Å resolution from a trigonal crystal soaked with AZC ...

Pathogenic micro-organisms utilize protein receptors (lectins) in adhesion to host tissues, a process that in some cases relies on the interaction between lectins and human glycoconjugates. Oligosaccharide epitopes are recognized through their three-dimensional structure and their flexibility is a key issue in specificity. In this paper, we analysed by X-ray crystallography the structures of the LecB lectin from two strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in complex with Lewis x oligosaccharide present on cell surfaces of human tissues. An unusual conformation of the glycan was observed in all binding sites with a non-canonical syn orientation of the N-acetyl group of N-acetyl-glucosamine. A PDB-wide search revealed that such an orientation occurs only in 4% of protein/carbohydrate complexes. Theoretical chemistry calculations showed that the observed conformation is unstable in solution but stabilised by the lectin. A reliable description of LecB/Lewis x complex by force field-based methods had ...

The structure was solved by the molecular replacement method, using the two independent search models for each of the domains in the CheB molecule (9, 12) (Table 1). A crystal of intact S. typhimurium CheB was used to collect a native data set to a resolution of 2.4 Å. The crystal was equilibrated in cryoprotectant solution [crystallization solution with the addition of 30% (wt/vol) ethylene glycol] for 2 hr and flash-frozen in a nitrogen gas stream (Oxford Cryosystems, Oxford, U.K.) at 100 K. Data were collected on an RAXIS-IV detector (Rigaku International, Tokyo) using mirror-focused and Ni-filtered Cu Kα radiation. Space group determination and data integration were done with denzo (13). All data were merged, scaled, and truncated with the rotavata/agrovata and truncate programs in the CCP4 suite (14). Initial phase estimates were obtained by the molecular replacement method with x-plor (15). Searches were made by using the crystal structure of the CheB C-terminal domain (residues 154-347) ...
