Probing the determinants of coenzyme specificity in ferredoxin-NADP+ reductase by site-directed mutagenesis.

On the basis of sequence and three-dimensional structure comparison between Anabaena PCC7119 ferredoxin-NADP(+) reductase (FNR) and other reductases from its structurally related family that bind either NADP(+)/H or NAD(+)/H, a set of amino acid residues that might determine the FNR coenzyme specificity can be assigned. These residues include Thr-155, Ser-223, Arg-224, Arg-233 and Tyr-235. Systematic replacement of these amino acids was done to identify which of them are the main determinants of coenzyme specificity. Our data indicate that all of the residues interacting with the 2'-phosphate of NADP(+)/H in Anabaena FNR are not involved to the same extent in determining coenzyme specificity and affinity. Thus, it is found that Ser-223 and Tyr-235 are important for determining NADP(+)/H specificity and orientation with respect to the protein, whereas Arg-224 and Arg-233 provide only secondary interactions in Anabaena FNR. The analysis of the T155G FNR form also indicates that the determinants of coenzyme specificity are not only situated in the 2'-phosphate NADP(+)/H interacting region but that other regions of the protein must be involved. These regions, although not interacting directly with the coenzyme, must produce specific structural arrangements of the backbone chain that determine coenzyme specificity. The loop formed by residues 261-268 in Anabaena FNR must be one of these regions.

Figure 9.
Fig. 9. Hydrogen bond network and structural differences in the FNR WT (A) and in the T155G FNR mutant (B). In the native state, OH (Thr-155) is making a bifurcated H-bond with the Leu-263 residue. Two new interactions are created after mutation: O (Leu-263) stabilizes a new interaction with N (Met-266), and O 2 (Gly-267) stabilizes a new interaction with N (Gly-265). This produces a less extended conformation for the 261-268 loop in the mutated enzyme.
Figure 10.
Fig. 10. MOLSCRIPT drawing of the superposition of Anabaena FNR (light) and NADH-cytochrome b[5] reductase (dark) (58) near the position of residue 155. In the NAD^+/H-dependent enzymes, a Gly residue at this position is favored due to the presence of a hairpin-like region (formed by a series of prolines) that will not allow the space for a Thr to occupy position 155 of FNR. On the contrary, the absence of this hairpin in the NADP+/H-dependent enzymes permits the presence of residues such as Thr or Pro at this position. Relevant residues are labeled as chain A in FNR or chain B in cytochrome b[5] reductase.

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.
