Crystal structure and functional analysis of the SurE protein identify a novel phosphatase family.

Homologs of the Escherichia coli surE gene are present in many eubacteria and archaea. Despite the evolutionary conservation, little information is available on the structure and function of their gene products. We have determined the crystal structure of the SurE protein from Thermotoga maritima. The structure reveals the dimeric arrangement of the subunits and an active site around a bound metal ion. We also demonstrate that the SurE protein exhibits a divalent metal ion-dependent phosphatase activity that is inhibited by vanadate or tungstate. In the vanadate- and tungstate-complexed structures, the inhibitors bind adjacent to the divalent metal ion. Our structural and functional analyses identify the SurE proteins as a novel family of metal ion-dependent phosphatases.

Figure 2. The overall fold of T. maritima SurE. a, Stereo ribbon diagram of the SurE monomer. -helices are colored purple and -strands, cyan. The divalent metal ion is displayed as a blue ball and the residues coordinating the metal ion (Asp 8, Asp 9, Ser 39 and Asn 95) are indicated. b, Stereo ribbon diagram of the SurE dimer in complex with divalent metal ions (spheres) and tungstate ions. -helices and -strands in one monomer are colored purple and cyan, respectively. Those in the other monomer are colored in red and green, respectively. Drawn with the programs MOLSCRIPT24 and RASTER3D^25.

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 codes are shown on the right.
