The crystal structures of two homologous endopeptidases from cyanobacteria Anabaena variabilis and Nostoc punctiforme were determined at 1.05 and 1.60 A resolution, respectively, and contain a bacterial SH3-like domain (SH3b) and a ubiquitous cell-wall-associated NlpC/P60 (or CHAP) cysteine peptidase domain. The NlpC/P60 domain is a primitive, papain-like peptidase in the CA clan of cysteine peptidases with a Cys126/His176/His188 catalytic triad and a conserved catalytic core. We deduced from structure and sequence analysis, and then experimentally, that these two proteins act as gamma-D-glutamyl-L-diamino acid endopeptidases (EC 3.4.22.-). The active site is located near the interface between the SH3b and NlpC/P60 domains, where the SH3b domain may help define substrate specificity, instead of functioning as a targeting domain, so that only muropeptides with an N-terminal L-alanine can bind to the active site.

Figure 3. Bacterial SH3b Domains
Structural comparison between the SH3b domain of AvPCP, ALE-1-targeting domain (PDB ID code 1r77), GW3 domain (PDB ID code 1m9s; residue range 551–629) of invasion protein InlB, and Abl SH3 domain (PDB ID code 1bbz). The four structures are shown in the same superimposed orientation. Residues of the ALE-1-targeting domain, the GW3 domain, and the Abl SH3 domain that can be superimposed with AvPCP SH3b are colored red.

Figure 4. Structural Comparisons of the Catalytic Domain of AvPCP
(A) Structural superimposition of the catalytic domains of AvPCP (green) and papain (PDB ID code 9pap; orange) in stereo. The catalytic triad of each protein is shown as sticks.
(B) Comparison of AvPCP with representative papain-like proteins: papain, Spr, the CHAP domain of GspS (Gsps-N), 2p1g (PDB ID code 2p1g), and NsPCS (PDB ID code 2bu3). The structures are shown in the same orientation of their catalytic domains.
(C) Four representative active-site pockets. The cysteine in the catalytic triad is colored in red, the histidine in blue, and the third polar residue in cyan (seen only in 2p1g, buried in others). The S sites (labeled S) are tentatively assigned based on papain.

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.
