The structure of ActVA-Orf6, a novel type of monooxygenase involved in actinorhodin biosynthesis.
G.Sciara, S.G.Kendrew, A.E.Miele, N.G.Marsh, L.Federici, F.Malatesta, G.Schimperna, C.Savino, B.Vallone.
ActVA-Orf6 monooxygenase from Streptomyces coelicolor that catalyses the oxidation of an aromatic intermediate of the actinorhodin biosynthetic pathway is a member of a class of small monooxygenases that carry out oxygenation without the assistance of any of the prosthetic groups, metal ions or cofactors normally associated with activation of molecular oxygen. The overall structure is a ferredoxin-like fold with a novel dimeric assembly, indicating that the widely represented ferredoxin fold may sustain yet another functionality. The resolution (1.3 A) of the enzyme structure and its complex with substrate and product analogues allows us to visualize the mechanism of binding and activation of the substrate for attack by molecular oxygen, and utilization of two gates for the reaction components including a proton gate and an O(2)/H(2)O gate with a putative protein channel. This is the first crystal structure of an enzyme involved in the tailoring of a type II aromatic polyketide and illustrates some of the enzyme-substrate recognition features that may apply to a range of other enzymes involved in modifying a polyketide core structure.
  Selected figure(s)  
Figure 6.
Figure 6 Putative catalytic mechanism of ActVA-Orf6 monooxygenase. Once 6-DDHK (shown here with alternative tautomeric form) enters the active site, stabilization of intramolecular hydrogen bonds (A) is associated with H+ transfer to Tyr72 (B) to yield the deprotonated form. C-6 carbanion can react with molecular oxygen (C). This leads to a peroxy intermediate (D), stabilized by hydrogen bonds with Asn62 and Tyr51. Protonation followed by dehydration is then necessary to complete the reaction.
Figure 7.
Figure 7 Hypothetical peroxy intermediate built on the atomic coordinates of acetyl dithranol in the active site B of ActVA-Orf6 monooxygenase. The model assumes sp3 geometry for the reactive carbon C-6. Asn62 and Tyr51 are in favourable stereochemistry to stabilize such an intermediate by hydrogen bonding.

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.
