DARPin-Assisted Crystallography of the CC2-LZ Domain of NEMO Reveals a Coupling between Dimerization and Ubiquitin Binding.

NEMO is an integral part of the IkappaB kinase complex and serves as a molecular switch by which the NF-kappaB signaling pathway can be regulated. Oligomerization and polyubiquitin (poly-Ub) binding, mediated through the regulatory CC2-LZ domain, were shown to be key features governing NEMO function, but the relationship between these two activities remains unclear. In this study, we solved the structure of this domain in complex with a designed ankyrin repeat protein, which helps its crystallization. We generated several NEMO mutants in this domain, including those associated with human diseases incontinentia pigmenti and immunodeficiency with or without anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. Analytical ultracentrifugation and thermal denaturation experiments were used to evaluate the dimerization properties of these mutants. A fluorescence-based assay was developed, as well, to quantify the interaction to monoubiquitin and poly-Ub chains. Moreover, the effect of these mutations was investigated for the full-length protein. We show that a proper folding of the ubiquitin-binding domain, termed NOA/UBAN/NUB, into a stable coiled-coil dimer is required but not sufficient for efficient interaction with poly-Ub. In addition, we show that binding to poly-Ub and, to a lesser extent, to monoubiquitin increases the stability of the NOA coiled-coil dimer. Collectively, these data provide structural insights into how several pathological mutations within and outside of the CC2-LZ's NOA ubiquitin binding site affect IkappaB kinase activation in the NF-kappaB signaling pathway.

Figure 2.
Fig. 2. Structural details and sequence conservation of the NOA motif. (a) Alignment of the NOA sequence from human, mouse, and Drosophila NEMO homologues and from human Optineurin and ABIN-1, -2, and -3 proteins. Numbers correspond to the first and last residue of the protein sequence. Identical and similar residues are colored red and yellow, respectively. Diamonds indicate residues linked to human pathologies: EDA-ID (blue), ID (green), and IP (red), corresponding to the following mutations (human numbering): D311N, E315A, R319Q, and A323P. The heptad position (a–g) is indicated at the bottom. (b) Close-up view of the NEMO NOA region (helices are colored as in Fig. 1). Conserved residues are shown as ball-and-stick representations, with O and N atoms in red and blue, respectively. Broken lines point to residues involved in salt bridge or H-bond formation. For clarity, only one set of conserved residues is displayed. (c) Helical wheel representation of the NOA coiled coil, starting from residue V293 at position c. Residues linked to human pathologies are colored red. Blue lines indicate intermolecular salt bridges.

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.
