The reaction mechanism of sucrose phosphorylase from Bifidobacterium adolescentis (BiSP) was studied by site-directed mutagenesis and x-ray crystallography. An inactive mutant of BiSP (E232Q) was co-crystallized with sucrose. The structure revealed a substrate-binding mode comparable with that seen in other related sucrose-acting enzymes. Wild-type BiSP was also crystallized in the presence of sucrose. In the dimeric structure, a covalent glucosyl intermediate was formed in one molecule of the BiSP dimer, and after hydrolysis of the glucosyl intermediate, a beta-D-glucose product complex was formed in the other molecule. Although the overall structure of the BiSP-glucosyl intermediate complex is similar to that of the BiSP(E232Q)-sucrose complex, the glucose complex discloses major differences in loop conformations. Two loops (residues 336-344 and 132-137) in the proximity of the active site move up to 16 and 4 A, respectively. On the basis of these findings, we have suggested a reaction cycle that takes into account the large movements in the active-site entrance loops.

Figure 1.
FIGURE 1. Schematic representation of the domain organization of the mixed dimer of BiSP. The glucosyl intermediate (molecule A; left) and the glucose hydrolysis product (molecule B; right) are shown as red spheres. domains A, B, B', and C are colored green, yellow, blue, and orange, respectively. N and C correspond to the N and C termini, respectively, whereas A and B indicate the positions of loops A and B.

FIGURE 4. Structural changes occurring during the enzyme reaction. A, close-up view of loops A and B of the wild-type BiSP covalent intermediate (molecule A; cyan) superimposed on the glucose product-bound form (molecule B; yellow). The bound glucose of molecule B is shown for clarity. B, close-up view of loops A and B and the noncovalently bound glucose molecule of the wild-type BiSP-glucose complex. Glucose 1-phosphate (yellow) has been modeled based on the position of the glucose interacting with Arg^135 and Tyr^344. C, proposed intermolecular phosphate-binding site created by two Arg^135 residues. The distances indicated by dashed lines are 3.9 Å. The bound sucrose molecules are shown as red van der Waals 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.
