Solution structure and dynamics of the DNA-binding domain of the adipocyte-transcription factor FREAC-11.
M.J.van Dongen, A.Cederberg, P.Carlsson, S.Enerbäck, M.Wikström.
Transcription factors of the forkhead type share a highly conserved DNA-binding domain of about 100 amino acid residues. FREAC-11, expressed in adipocytes, belongs to this class. Here, we report on NMR studies that established the three-dimensional structure of the FREAC-11, DNA-binding domain. Although apparent similarities to the structures of other members within the forkhead family are observed, the structure also reveals some remarkable differences. Along with the complementary dynamics, the data provide insight into the fundamentals of sequence specificity within a highly conserved motif.

Figure 2. (a) Side-by-side view of the 25 low-energy NMR structures of FREAC-11 DBD(1-94) in which the backbone atoms in the structured regions (residues 4-65, 77-80) are superimposed. (b) Schematic representation of the FREAC-11-DBD(1-94) structure, highlighting the polar and charged residues protruding from H3. HNCA, HN(CO)CA, HNCACB, CACB-(CO)NH and HNCO experiments were used to obtain sequential assignments for the backbone, whereas the side-chain resonances were assigned using TOCSY-[15N]HSQC (40 ms mixing), C(CO)NH, H(CCO)NH and HC(C)H-TOCSY experiments. Distance information was extracted from NOESY-[15N]HSQC experiments with mixing times of 40, 100 and 200 ms, as well as from two NOESY-[13C]HSQC experiments (120 ms mixing) optimized for aliphatic and aromatic carbon resonances, respectively. An HNHA experiment was recorded to obtain 3J[HN-Ha] coupling constants. Cross-correlation rates (G) between the [13C^a]-[1Ha] dipolar and 13C' chemical shift anisotropy relaxation mechanisms [Yang et al 1998], and between [13C^a]-[1Ha] and [15N]-[1HN] dipolar interactions [Yang and Kay 1998] were derived as described. An H(N)COCG experiment was recorded to assess 3J[C'-Cg] scalar couplings [Konrat et al 1997]. All NMR spectra were acquired on Varian Unity-INOVA spectrometers operating at 500, 600 and 800 MHz, and were carried out at 27 °C. NMR data were processed and analyzed using NMRPipe [Delaglio et al 1995] and ANSIG version 3.3 [Kraulis et al 1994], respectively. Distance restraints were obtained by classifying relative NOE cross peak intensities as strong (1.8-2.7 Å), medium (1.8-3.3 Å), weak (1.8-5.0 Å) and very weak (1.8-8.0 Å). The upper distance limits corresponding to strong and medium strength NOE values were subsequently raised with 0.3 and 0.5 Å for NOEs involving NH and methyl resonances, respectively. Distances involving methyl groups and non-stereospecifically assigned aromatic ring and methylene protons were represented as a (Sr -6)1/6 sums. In addition to the 965 restraints for which unambiguous assignments were available, 77 ambiguous distance restraints were applied. Backbone phi, Greek angles were restrained to -120(±40) ° for residues with 3J[HN-Ha]>8.0 Hz and for residues with DC^a< -1 ppm and DHa>0.2 ppm. In addition, phi, Greek angles were restrained to -65(±25) ° for residues with 3J[HN-Ha]<5.0 Hz and for residues with DC^a >1 ppm and DHa < -0.2 ppm. Backbone q angles were restrained to -40(±30) ° for residues with G[CaHa,C'] > 10 s -1, based on a calculated relationship between q and G[CaHa,C'] [Yang et al 1998]. Side-chain x[1] angles were either restrained to -60(±30) ° for residues with 2.5 Hz<3J[C'-Cg]<5.0 Hz [Hu and Bax 1997], or, alternatively, on the basis of relative NOE intensities involving the two b methylene protons. Distance restraints representing hydrogen bonds were included for residues showing protection from fast amide-hydrogen exchange, as well as dihedral angles and NOE patterns diagnostic of a-helical secondary structure.

The lower right halves of the matrices show the mean values, while the upper left halves show the RMSD values of the distance differences.

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.
