The three-dimensional crystal structure of cholera toxin.
R.G.Zhang, D.L.Scott, M.L.Westbrook, S.Nance, B.D.Spangler, G.G.Shipley, E.M.Westbrook.
The clinical manifestations of cholera are largely attributable to the actions of a secreted hexameric AB5 enterotoxin (choleragen). We have independently solved and refined the three-dimensional structure of choleragen at 2.5 A resolution. The structure of the crystalline toxin closely resembles that described for the heat-labile enterotoxin from Escherichia coli (LT) with which it shares 80% sequence homology. In both cases, the wedge-shaped A subunit is loosely held high above the plane of the pentameric B subunits by the tethering A2 chain. The most striking difference between the two toxins occurs at the carboxyl terminus of the A2 chain. Whereas the last 14 residues of the A2 chain of LT threading through the central pore of the B5 assembly form an extended chain with a terminal loop, the A2 chain of choleragen remains a nearly continuous alpha-helix throughout its length. The four carboxyl-terminal residues of the A2 chain (KDEL sequence), disordered in the crystal structure of LT, are clearly visible in choleragen's electron-density map. In the accompanying article we describe the three-dimensional structure of the isolated B pentamer of cholera toxin (choleragenoid). Comparison of the crystalline coordinates of choleragen, choleragenoid, and LT provides a solid three-dimensional foundation for further experimental investigation. These structures, along with those of related toxins from Shigella dysenteria and Bordetella pertussis, offer a first step towards the rational design of new vaccines and anti-microbial agents.

Figure 3.
Figure 3. Representative electron-density for cholera toxin. Stereo view of the 2Fo--Fc electron-density map at the junction between the A subunit and the B pentamer. The long A2 a-helix (orange) can be seen as it begins its descent into the central pore. Residues belonging to the A1 chain or to the B pentamer are indicated (Pro120 and Ala(4)75, respectively).
Figure 9.
Figure 9. Cross-section through the central ``channel'' of choleragen. The A1 chain, A2 chain, and the B subunits are colored cyan, gold, and lavender, respectively. Side-chains contributing to the A2/B interface are shaded according to charge potential: green, non-polar; red, negatively charged; blue, positively charged. The Trp88 of opposed B subunits are shown to assist with orientation. Yellow spheres represent well-resolved water molecules. TheA2/B interface is initially quite non-polar but becomes quite polar deeper in the channel. The carboxyl terminus of the A2 chain presumably interacts with the surface of the membrane during GM1 binding. The sequence of the terminal four residues (KDEL) is identical to that shown to act as endoplasmic retention signal (Lewis & Pelham, 1990; Joseph et al., 1978, 1979).

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.
