Literature Report

IntroductionInositol polyphosphate 1 -phosphatase (l-ptase) removes the l-position phosphate from inositol 1,4-bisphosphate, yielding inositol 4-phosphate. l-Ptase is a ubiquitous monomeric enzyme that requires Mg2+ for activity and is potently inhibited by Li+, leading to its use in therapeutic targets of lithium treatment for manic-depressive illnesses.
MechansimAs with most phosphatases the mechanism involves nucleophilic attack on the phosphate group. The nucleophile is an activated water molecule, which is co-ordinated to two magnesium cofactors and then activated by Thr158. This attacks the phosphate group forming a trigonal bipyramidal transition state which is stabilised by the magnesium ions, break down of this leads to the the inositol 4-phosphate.
Note there have been proposals for 2 and 3 magnesium ions models. This PDB code relates to a two magnesium-site enzyme.
