Prolyl oligopeptidase: an unusual beta-propeller domain regulates proteolysis.
V.Fülöp, Z.Böcskei, L.Polgár.
Prolyl oligopeptidase is a large cytosolic enzyme that belongs to a new class of serine peptidases. The enzyme is involved in the maturation and degradation of peptide hormones and neuropeptides, which relate to the induction of amnesia. The 1.4 A resolution crystal structure is presented here. The enzyme contains a peptidase domain with an alpha/beta hydrolase fold, and its catalytic triad (Ser554, His680, Asp641) is covered by the central tunnel of an unusual beta propeller. This domain makes prolyl oligopeptidase an oligopeptidase by excluding large structured peptides from the active site. In this way, the propeller protects larger peptides and proteins from proteolysis in the cytosol. The structure is also obtained with a transition state inhibitor, which may facilitate drug design to treat memory disorders.

Figure 4. Comparison of the Fold of the Noncatalytic Domain of Prolyl Oligopeptidase with a Typical β-Propeller Structure(A) The protein chain of the β-propeller domain of prolyl oligopeptidase is colored as in Figure 2 and viewed perpendicular to that, down the pseudo 7-fold axis. The β sheets of the seven blades are joined in succession (β1/1 to β7/4, cf. Figure 1) around the central axis. The “Velcro” is not closed; there are only hydrophobic interactions between the first (blue) and last (green) blades. Residues (Lys82, Glu134, His180, Asp242, Lys389, and Lys390) narrowing the entrance to the tunnel of the propeller are shown in a ball-and-stick representation.(B) The structure of G-protein β subunit (PDB entry 1tbg). The “Velcro” is closed between the two termini of the polypeptide chain by the main chain hydrogen bonds between the N terminus (blue) and the three antiparallel β strands from the C terminus (green). (Drawn with MolScript and rendered with Raster3D.)
Figure 6.
Figure 6. Surface Representation of Prolyl OligopeptidaseThe molecular surface is superimposed on the polypeptide chain. The picture shows a slab of the molecule, hence the cropping of the chain. The large cavity extends from the central tunnel of the β propeller to the catalytic domain and is accessible through the narrow hole at the bottom of the propeller. The covalently bound inhibitor, Z-Pro-prolinal, is shown in a ball-and-stick representation. The molecular surface was calculated by the method published by [11], and the figure was prepared using XOBJECTS (M. E. M. Noble, Oxford, unpublished program).

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.
