Architecture of mammalian fatty acid synthase at 4.5 A resolution.
T.Maier, S.Jenni, N.Ban.
 
  ABSTRACT  
 
The homodimeric mammalian fatty acid synthase is one of the most complex cellular multienzymes, in that each 270-kilodalton polypeptide chain carries all seven functional domains required for fatty acid synthesis. We have calculated a 4.5 angstrom-resolution x-ray crystallographic map of porcine fatty acid synthase, highly homologous to the human multienzyme, and placed homologous template structures of all individual catalytic domains responsible for the cyclic elongation of fatty acid chains into the electron density. The positioning of domains reveals the complex architecture of the multienzyme forming an intertwined dimer with two lateral semicircular reaction chambers, each containing a full set of catalytic domains required for fatty acid elongation. Large distances between active sites and conformational differences between the reaction chambers demonstrate that mobility of the acyl carrier protein and general flexibility of the multienzyme must accompany handover of the reaction intermediates during the reaction cycle.

Figure 4.
Fig. 4. Active sites and reaction chamber. (A) Front view of FAS with ribbon representations of fitted domains colored as in Fig. 1. The overall shape is indicated by the outline of electron density; gray and blue colors of the outline mark the nonmodeled KS/MAT interconnection and suggested ACP/TE location, respectively. The positions of active sites in the two reaction chambers are indicated by solid white and blue spheres. Hollow spheres in domain colors that surround the active sites denote the length of the phosphopantheteine arm, reflecting how close ACP has to approach the individual domains during the catalytic cycle. The active sites are connected in order of the reaction sequence with distances between the active sites indicated for the left reaction chamber. (B) Side view into one reaction chamber as indicated by a white arrow in (A); for clarity, only surface representations of the fitted domains are shown. Active sites of fitted domains of one reaction chamber are indicated by a color gradient to white on the respective surfaces.
Figure 5.
Fig. 5. Interdomain hinges and conformational variability. For structural comparison, the FAS dimer is superimposed onto itself by applying the transformation relating the dimer of KS domains as indicated by an arrow. As a result, the left reaction chamber is transformed onto the right one and vice versa. The original orientation is shown in red, the transformed one in yellow. (A) Only secondary structural elements of the fitted domains are shown. Largest differences are observed for the positions of the KR and MAT domains at the periphery. The approximate position of the pseudo-twofold dimer axis is indicated by an arrow. (B) Experimental electron density is schematically shown as an outline. The positions of active sites are indicated by spheres, hinges by crossed circles. The left reaction chamber is considerably narrower than the right one with a difference of distances between the KR and MAT active sites of about 15 Å as indicated for the original orientation in red.

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 codes are shown on the right.
