Structure of a new 'aspzincin' metalloendopeptidase from Grifola frondosa: implications for the catalytic mechanism and substrate specificity based on several different crystal forms.

Crystal structures of a peptidyl-Lys metalloendopeptidase (MEP) from the edible mushroom Grifola frondosa (GfMEP) were solved in four crystal forms. This represents the first structure of the new family 'aspzincins' with a novel active-site architecture. The active site is composed of two helices and a loop region and includes the HExxH and GTxDxxYG motifs conserved among aspzincins. His117, His121 and Asp130 coordinate to the catalytic zinc ligands. An electrostatically negative region composed of Asp154 and Glu157 attracts a positively charged Lys side chain of a substrate in a specific manner. A Tyr133 side chain located on the S1' pocket had different configurations in two crystal forms and was not observed in the other crystal forms. The flexible Tyr133 plays two roles in the enzymatic function of GfMEP. The first is to provide a hydrophobic environment with Phe83 in order to accommodate the alkyl part of the Lys side chain of a substrate and the second is as a 'proton donor' to the oxyanion of the tetrahedral transition state to stabilize the reaction transition state.

Figure 3 Representative structures of the respective MEP families. (a) GfMEP, (b) neutrophil collagenase (Bode et al., 1994[Bode, W., Reinemer, P., Huber, R., Kleine, T., Schnierer, S. & Tschesche, H. (1994). EMBO J. 13, 1263-1269.]; metzincin; PDB code [230]1jap ) and (c) thermolysin (Holden et al., 1987[231] [Holden, H. M., Tronrud, D. E., Monzingo, A. F., Weaver, L. H. & Matthews, B. W. (1987). Biochemistry, 26, 8542-8553.]-[232][bluearr.gif] ; gluzincin; PDB code [233]4tmn ). The S1' pocket region is coloured in blue and the zinc-binding site in red. The [234][alpha] -helices and [235][beta] -strands which compose the common folding topology among the three families are coloured cyan and magenta, respectively. The catalytic zinc ion and its ligand residues are also presented. Atoms are coloured with carbon in green, oxygen in red, nitrogen in blue and zinc in orange. All molecules are aligned in the same orientation with regard to the two ligand His residues and the zinc ion.

Figure 5 The molecular-surface representation of the cleft region in the hexagonal crystals coloured according to their electrostatic potential: red for the electrostatically negative region and blue for the positive region. The molecular orientation is the same as in Fig. 2-. The molecular surface and electrostatic potential were calculated with GRASP (Nicholls et al., 1991[Nicholls, A., Sharp, K. A. & Honig, B. (1991). Proteins, 11, 281-296.]).

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.
