Evidence of intradomain and interdomain flexibility in an OmpR/PhoB homolog from Thermotoga maritima.
D.R.Buckler, Y.Zhou, A.M.Stock.
Two-component systems, the predominant signal transduction strategy used by prokaryotes, involve phosphorelay from a sensor histidine kinase (HK) to an intracellular response regulator protein (RR) that typically acts as a transcription regulator. RRs are modular proteins, usually composed of a conserved regulatory domain, which functions as a phosphorylation-activated switch, and an attached DNA binding effector domain. The crystal structure of a Thermotoga maritima transcription factor, DrrD, has been determined at 1.5 A resolution, providing the first structural information for a full-length member of the OmpR/PhoB subfamily of RRs. A small interdomain interface occurs between alpha 5 of the regulatory domain and an antiparallel sheet of the effector domain. The lack of an extensive interface in the unphosphorylated protein distinguishes DrrD from other structurally characterized multidomain RRs and suggests a different mode of interdomain regulation.

Figure 1.
Figure 1. Structure of Full-Length DrrD(A) A ribbon representation of the DrrD structure highlighting residues at the interdomain interface (ball and stick rendering) and six thiocyanate ions (CPK rendering). For the stick and CPK renderings, carbon is in green, nitrogen is in blue, oxygen is in red, and sulfur is in yellow. Secondary structural elements are labeled a1-5 and b1-5 for the regulatory domain and H1-3 and S1-7 for the effector domain. The recognition helix, H3, in the effector domain is in gold. Two regions through which electron density was not observed, the interdomain linker and the loop connecting H2 and H3, are indicated by dashed lines.(B) Stereo Ca trace rendered in the same orientation as in (A).This figure and the protein models shown in Figure 3, Figure 4, Figure 5, Figure 6 and Figure 7 were generated using Ribbons [65] Version 3.14.

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.
