Structure determination and refinement of the Humicola insolens endoglucanase V at 1.5 A resolution.

The structure of the catalytic core of the endoglucanase V (EGV) from Humicola insolens has been determined by the method of multiple isomorphous replacement at 1.5 A resolution. The final model, refined with X-PLOR and PROLSQ, has a crystallographic R factor of 0.163 (R(free) = 0.240) with deviations from stereochemical target values of 0.012 A and 0.037 degrees for bonds and angles, respectively. The model was further refined with SHELXL, including anisotropic modelling of the protein-atom temperature factors, to give a final model with an R factor of 0.105 and an R(free) of 0.154. The initial isomorphous replacement electron-density map was poor and uninterpretable but was improved by the use of synchrotron data collected at a wavelength chosen so as to optimize the f" contribution of the anomalous scattering from the heavy atoms. The structure of H. insolens EGV consists of a six-stranded beta-barrel domain, similar to that found in a family of plant defence proteins, linked by a number of disulfide-bonded loop regions. A long open groove runs across the surface of the enzyme either side of which lie the catalytic aspartate residues. The 9 A separation of the catalytic carboxylate groups is consistent with the observation that EGV catalyzes the hydrolysis of the cellulose, beta(1-->4) links with inversion of configuration at the anomeric C1 atom. This structure is the first representative from the glycosyl hydrolase family 45.

Fig. 1. Sections of the electron- density maps of EGV corre- sponding to residues 90-94. The three maps shown are a) MIR map (convntional source), (b) MIR map (optimized A) and (c) the 1.5 A 2Fo-Fc map. The two MIR maps are contoured at a level of l cr and the 2Fo- F,. map at a level of 04 e A -3.

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.
