Crystal structure of a phosphoinositide phosphatase, MTMR2: insights into myotubular myopathy and Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome.
M.J.Begley, G.S.Taylor, S.A.Kim, D.M.Veine, J.E.Dixon, J.A.Stuckey.
Myotubularin-related proteins are a large subfamily of protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) that dephosphorylate D3-phosphorylated inositol lipids. Mutations in members of the myotubularin family cause the human neuromuscular disorders myotubular myopathy and type 4B Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome. The crystal structure of a representative member of this family, MTMR2, reveals a phosphatase domain that is structurally unique among PTPs. A series of mutants are described that exhibit altered enzymatic activity and provide insight into the specificity of myotubularin phosphatases toward phosphoinositide substrates. The structure also reveals that the GRAM domain, found in myotubularin family phosphatases and predicted to occur in approximately 180 proteins, is part of a larger motif with a pleckstrin homology (PH) domain fold. Finally, the MTMR2 structure will serve as a model for other members of the myotubularin family and provide a framework for understanding the mechanism whereby mutations in these proteins lead to disease.

Figure 5. Model of Ins(1,3,5)P[3] in the Active Site of MTMR2(A) A schematic of the phosphate molecules and hydrogen bond network in the MTMR2 active site. Hydrogen bonds are shown as blue dotted lines.(B) Model of Ins(1,3,5)P[3] in the active site of MTMR2 with its D1 and D3 phosphate groups superimposed onto the phosphate molecules shown in (A).(C) Phosphatase activity of MTMR2 mutants toward PI(3)P and PI(3,5)P[2] substrates. Values are expressed as percent wild-type MTMR2 activity of three independent experiments (mean ± SEM).

Figure 6. Missense Disease Mutations(A) Sequence conservation of MTM1 and MTMR2 and the location of missense disease mutations. The sequence of MTMR2 corresponding to the crystal structure was aligned with MTM1. Regions of identity are boxed and shaded. Arrows and ovals represent β strands and α helices, respectively. Missense disease mutations are marked with arrowheads.(B) Van der Waals surface space-filled model of MTMR2. The view is the same as Figure 2A. The PH-GRAM domain is shown in green, the phosphatase domain in blue, and the active site motif (P loop) in yellow. Residues that are sites of missense disease mutations are red and labeled when >10% solvent accessible.(C) View corresponding to a 180° rotation around a vertical axis with respect to Figure 6B. Solvent accessible residues are 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 code is shown on the right.
