Substrate-induced asymmetry and channel closure revealed by the apoenzyme structure of Mycobacterium tuberculosis phosphopantetheine adenylyltransferase.
V.K.Morris, T.Izard.
Phosphopantetheine adenylyltransferase (PPAT) catalyzes the penultimate step in prokaryotic coenzyme A (CoA) biosynthesis, directing the transfer of an adenylyl group from ATP to 4'-phosphopantetheine (Ppant) to yield dephospho-CoA (dPCoA). The crystal structures of Escherichia coli PPAT bound to its substrates, product, and inhibitor revealed an allosteric hexameric enzyme with half-of-sites reactivity, and established an in-line displacement catalytic mechanism. To provide insight into the mechanism of ligand binding we solved the apoenzyme (Apo) crystal structure of PPAT from Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In its Apo form, PPAT is a symmetric hexamer with an open solvent channel. However, ligand binding provokes asymmetry and alters the structure of the solvent channel, so that ligand binding becomes restricted to one trimer.

Figure 2. Stereo superposition of the E. coli PPAT structure bound to dPCoA onto the M. tuberculosis PPAT apo-structure. Residues involved in binding to dPCoA or pyrophosphate, as seen in the E. coli PPAT:dPCoA structure, are shown in red and the equivalent residues found in the M. tuberculosis are shown in blue. The product (dPCoA) is shown in ball-and-stick representation. Movements of the catalytic lysine are indicated.

Figure 3. C trace superposition of the of E. coli PPAT (three shades of gray) hexamer as seen in the PPAT:dPCoA structure onto the apo-form of M. tuberculosis PPAT (three shades of red). The N and C termini are indicated. For clarity, the hexamer is depicted in two halves of trimers. (A) The 195 C positions of residues forming strands or helices of the unliganded E. coli PPAT trimer can be superimposed onto the equivalent C positions of the apo-from of M. tuberculosis PPAT with RMSD of 0.9 .

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.
