Structural basis for inactivation of the human pyruvate dehydrogenase complex by phosphorylation: role of disordered phosphorylation loops.
M.Kato, R.M.Wynn, J.L.Chuang, S.C.Tso, M.Machius, J.Li, D.T.Chuang.
We report the crystal structures of the phosporylated pyruvate dehydrogenase (E1p) component of the human pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDC). The complete phosphorylation at Ser264-alpha (site 1) of a variant E1p protein was achieved using robust pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase 4 free of the PDC core. We show that unlike its unmodified counterpart, the presence of a phosphoryl group at Ser264-alpha prevents the cofactor thiamine diphosphate-induced ordering of the two loops carrying the three phosphorylation sites. The disordering of these phosphorylation loops is caused by a previously unrecognized steric clash between the phosphoryl group at site 1 and a nearby Ser266-alpha, which nullifies a hydrogen-bonding network essential for maintaining the loop conformations. The disordered phosphorylation loops impede the binding of lipoyl domains of the PDC core to E1p, negating the reductive acetylation step. This results in the disruption of the substrate channeling in the PDC, leading to the inactivation of this catalytic machine.

Figure 4.
Figure 4. Hydrogen-Bond Networks Involving Phosphorylation Site 1
(A) The H-bond network connecting phosphorylation site 1 and Tyr33-β′ of the E1p-β′ subunit in the wild-type E1p structure. Ph-loop A is in orange, and Ph-loop B in yellow. The positions of the three phosphorylation sites are shown as spheres at the corresponding Cα atom positions. Water molecules are depicted as small red spheres. H-bonds are indicated by gray dashed lines.
(B) A similar H-bond network in the Ser264E-α mutant E1p structure (PDB ID code 2OZL; Seifert et al., 2007).
(C) A stereo diagram showing absence of the H-bond network in phospho-S1-E1p containing bound Mn-ThDP. The phosphoryl group on Ser264-α (site 1) clashes with the side chain of the neighboring Ser266-α. Van der Waals radii of the phosphoryl group and side chains of both serine residues are shown as spheres of red dots.
(D) A stereo figure of the 2Fo-Fc electron density map (contoured at 1σ) at phosphorylation site 1 with a stick representation of the refined model.
(E) Average B-factor plots of the wild-type and phospho-S1-E1p structures. Average B-factors for individual residues in one of the four nonphosphorylated wild-type E1p-α subunits (solid line) and one of the two phospho-S1-E1p-α subunits with the wild-type-like “ordered” Ph-loops (dashed line) are plotted against the residue number.
The residue ranges for Ph-loops A and B are indicated on top of the graph. Each of the three phosphorylation sites and residue Ser266-α are labeled.

Figure 5. Extensive Interactions between the Two Ph-Loops in the Wild-Type E1p Structure
The stereo diagram illustrates extensive interactions between Ph-loop A (orange) and Ph-loop B (yellow) in the nonphosphorylated wild-type E1p structure. The Ph-loops are shown as stick models. Side chains of some residues are omitted for clarity. The three phosphorylation sites are S264-α (site 1), S271-α (site 2), and S203-α (site 3). Water molecules are shown as small red spheres, and the manganese atom as a pink sphere. H-bonds are indicated by gray lines.

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.
