Crystal structure of an uncleaved alpha 1-antitrypsin reveals the conformation of its inhibitory reactive loop.
H.K.Song, K.N.Lee, K.S.Kwon, M.H.Yu, S.W.Suh.
The crystal structure of a recombinant human alpha 1-antitrypsin, in the uncleaved and uncomplexed state, has been determined by X-ray crystallographic methods and refined to an R-factor of 18.4% for 8.0-3.46 A data with good stereochemistry. This structure provides the first view at the inhibitory loop and the central beta-sheet A of the uncleaved alpha 1-antitrypsin. The reactive loop takes a distorted helical conformation and no pre-insertion of two residues in the reactive loop into the beta-sheet A is observed. The present structure is largely in agreement with the model predicted by Engh, Wright, and Huber [Prot. Eng. 3 (1990) 469-477].

Figure 1.
Fig. 1. Stereo ribbon diagram of uncleaved a~AT drawn with the progam MOLSCRIPT [22]. The a-helices are represented by helical ibbons and fl-sheets by arrows. The reactive loop residues P15-P5' (Gly344-Glu363) are at the top.
Figure 3.
Fi~. 3. A stereo view of the final (2Fo-Fc) electron density map and the central fl-sheet A of uncleaved ~IAT (in thick lines). The reactive loop of un,.:leaved c~]AT is also shown at the top of the figure. Thin lines in (a) and represent the superposed models of cleaved ~zAT and ovalbumin, respectively. Th strands of the ental fl-sheet A are labelled as s2A, s3A, s4A, s5A, and s6A, respectively. The P15, P1, and P5' of the reactive are also indicated.

The most recent references are shown first. Citation data come partly from CiteXplore and partly from an automated harvesting procedure. Note that this is likely to be only a partial list as not all journals are covered by either method. However, we are continually building up the citation data so more and more references will be included with time. Where a reference describes a PDB structure, the PDB codes are shown on the right.
