Structure and Interdomain Interactions of a Hybrid Domain: A Disulphide-Rich Module of the Fibrillin/LTBP Superfamily of Matrix Proteins.
S.A.Jensen, S.Iqbal, E.D.Lowe, C.Redfield, P.A.Handford.
The fibrillins and latent transforming growth factor-beta binding proteins (LTBPs) form a superfamily of structurally-related proteins consisting of calcium-binding epidermal growth factor-like (cbEGF) domains interspersed with 8-cysteine-containing transforming growth factor beta-binding protein-like (TB) and hybrid (hyb) domains. Fibrillins are the major components of the extracellular 10-12 nm diameter microfibrils, which mediate a variety of cell-matrix interactions. Here we present the crystal structure of a fibrillin-1 cbEGF9-hyb2-cbEGF10 fragment, solved to 1.8 A resolution. The hybrid domain fold is similar, but not identical, to the TB domain fold seen in previous fibrillin-1 and LTBP-1 fragments. Pairwise interactions with neighboring cbEGF domains demonstrate extensive interfaces, with the hyb2-cbEGF10 interface dependent on Ca(2+) binding. These observations provide accurate constraints for models of fibrillin organization within the 10-12 nm microfibrils and provide further molecular insights into how Ca(2+) binding influences the intermolecular interactions and biomechanical properties of fibrillin-1.

Figure 1. Domain Organization of Human Fibrillin-1
The fibrillin sequence is largely dominated by cbEGF domains, interspersed with TB and hyb domains. Constructs used to determine Ca^2+ affinities of hyb-cbEGF pairs and the cbEGF9-hyb2-cbEGF10 construct are shown above the figure.
Figure 4.
Figure 4. Residues Involved in the Formation of Interdomain Interfaces
(A and B) Residues involved in interdomain contacts were identified using the program Contact in the CCP4 program suite (CCP4, 1994), with a distance limit of 4 Å. Hyb domain residues at the cbEGF9-hyb2 interface (A) or hyb2-cbEGF10 interface (B) are indicated by magenta spheres and interacting cbEGF residues are indicated by green spheres.
(C) An alignment of the hyb2 and TB4 domains shows similarities of the regions involved in interactions with either the N-terminal (red) or C-terminal (cyan) cbEGFs. Domains were aligned using Clustal W 2.0 (Larkin et al., 2007), and cysteines are highlighted in yellow.

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.
