Structural mechanisms for the 5'-CCWGG sequence recognition by the N- and C-terminal domains of EcoRII.

EcoRII restriction endonuclease is specific for the 5'-CCWGG sequence (W stands for A or T); however, it shows no activity on a single recognition site. To activate cleavage it requires binding of an additional target site as an allosteric effector. EcoRII dimer consists of three structural units: a central catalytic core, made from two copies of the C-terminal domain (EcoRII-C), and two N-terminal effector DNA binding domains (EcoRII-N). Here, we report DNA-bound EcoRII-N and EcoRII-C structures, which show that EcoRII combines two radically different structural mechanisms to interact with the effector and substrate DNA. The catalytic EcoRII-C dimer flips out the central T:A base pair and makes symmetric interactions with the CC:GG half-sites. The EcoRII-N effector domain monomer binds to the target site asymmetrically in a single defined orientation which is determined by specific hydrogen bonding and van der Waals interactions with the central T:A pair in the major groove. The EcoRII-N mode of the target site recognition is shared by the large class of higher plant transcription factors of the B3 superfamily.

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.
