The double-stranded telomeric repeat-binding protein (TRP) AtTRP1 is isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana. Using gel retardation assays, we defined the C-terminal 97 amino acid residues, Gln464 to Val560 (AtTRP1(464-560)), as the minimal structured telomeric repeat-binding domain. This region contains a typical Myb DNA-binding motif and a C-terminal extension of 40 amino acid residues. The monomeric AtTRP1(464-560) binds to a 13-mer DNA duplex containing a single repeat of an A.thaliana telomeric DNA sequence (GGTTTAG) in a 1:1 complex, with a K(D) approximately 10(-6)-10(-7) M. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) examination revealed that the solution structure of AtTRP1(464-560) is a novel four-helix tetrahedron rather than the three-helix bundle structure found in typical Myb motifs and other TRPs. Binding of the 13-mer DNA duplex to AtTRP1(464-560) induced significant chemical shift perturbations of protein amide resonances, which suggests that helix 3 (H3) and the flexible loop connecting H3 and H4 are essential for telomeric DNA sequence recognition. Furthermore, similar to that in hTRF1, the N-terminal arm likely contributes to or stabilizes DNA binding. Sequence comparisons suggested that the four-helix structure and the involvement of the loop residues in DNA binding may be features unique to plant TRPs.

(a) Sequence variation with DNA binding induced chemical shift changes, Click to view the MathML source- [0?wchp=dGLbVtb-zSkWA] , of the AtTRP1[464-560] amide resonances, where Dd[NH] and Dd[N] is the chemical-shift difference for NH and 15N, respectively. (b) A schematic representation of the AtTRP1[464-560] structure. The red rods represent the helices. (c) Electrostatic charge potential on the surface of AtTRP1[464-560]. (d) The spatial locations of the DNA-perturbed residues of AtTRP1[464-560]. The magnitudes of the DNA binding-induced chemical shifts are color-coded as follow: red, Dd>0.6 ppm; orange, 0.6 >Dd> 0.4 ppm; yellow, 0.4>Dd>0.2 ppm; white, 0.02>Dd>0 ppm. Proline residues, or residues with amide resonances that cannot be observed, are colored dark grey. All structures are shown in the same orientation as in (b). (e) A model structure of AtTRP1[464-560] bound to a double-stranded telomeric DNA (sequence 5'-TAGGGTTTAGGGT-3'). The backbone of the protein molecule is shown as a yellow rope and the four helices are shown as red cylinders. The green sticks indicate residues with significant chemical shift perturbations attained upon binding to DNA. Grey and blue sticks represent the backbones of the two strands of DNA molecules, and the negatively charged phosphate group, respectively.

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.
