Sorbitol dehydrogenase (hSDH) and aldose reductase form the polyol pathway that interconverts glucose and fructose. Redox changes from overproduction of the coenzyme NADH by SDH may play a role in diabetes-induced dysfunction in sensitive tissues, making SDH a therapeutic target for diabetic complications. We have purified and determined the crystal structures of human SDH alone, SDH with NAD(+), and SDH with NADH and an inhibitor that is competitive with fructose. hSDH is a tetramer of identical, catalytically active subunits. In the apo and NAD(+) complex, the catalytic zinc is coordinated by His69, Cys44, Glu70, and a water molecule. The inhibitor coordinates the zinc through an oxygen and a nitrogen atom with the concomitant dissociation of Glu70. The inhibitor forms hydrophobic interactions to NADH and likely sterically occludes substrate binding. The structure of the inhibitor complex provides a framework for developing more potent inhibitors of hSDH.

Figure 5. Binding Site of Inhibitor CP-166,572(A) Electron density for the inhibitor. Derived from a 2F[o] - F[c] omit map contoured at 1s above the mean.(B) CP-166,572 interacts with both Zn and NADH. Stereo image showing the simultaneous interaction between the inhibitor and the catalytic zinc as well as the nicotinamide ring of NADH. All other ligands to zinc are shown.(C) Binding site of CP-166,572. Stereo image showing importance of hydrophobic contacts in binding inhibitor. All residues (gray carbon atoms) within van der Waals distance to CP-166,572 (green carbon atoms) are shown. Only a single direct hydrogen bond is formed to the enzyme (to Glu155); all other hydrogen bonds are formed to water molecules (red spheres).

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.
