Crystal structure of constitutive endothelial nitric oxide synthase: a paradigm for pterin function involving a novel metal center.
C.S.Raman, H.Li, P.Martásek, V.Král, B.S.Masters, T.L.Poulos.
Nitric oxide, a key signaling molecule, is produced by a family of enzymes collectively called nitric oxide synthases (NOS). Here, we report the crystal structure of the heme domain of endothelial NOS in tetrahydrobiopterin (H4B)-free and -bound forms at 1.95 A and 1.9 A resolution, respectively. In both structures a zinc ion is tetrahedrally coordinated to pairs of symmetry-related cysteine residues at the dimer interface. The phylogenetically conserved Cys-(X)4-Cys motif and its strategic location establish a structural role for the metal center in maintaining the integrity of the H4B-binding site. The unexpected recognition of the substrate, L-arginine, at the H4B site indicates that this site is poised to stabilize a positively charged pterin ring and suggests a model involving a cationic pterin radical in the catalytic cycle.

Figure 5.
Figure 5. Cooperativity and Molecular Mimicry in eNOS(A) Cross talk between H[4]B and L-Arg mediated by the heme propionate (Se-edge data). The guanidinium and amino groups of L-Arg are held in place by H-bonding with the conserved Glu-363. The amino group also H-bonds with a heme propionate. H[4]B H-bonds directly with the heme propionate, while the pteridine ring is sandwiched between Phe-462 in one monomer and Trp-449 in another, respectively.(B) L-Arg is a structural mimic of H[4]B at the pterin-binding site when SEITU is bound at the active site (-H[4]B, +SEITU data). L-Arg binds to the pterin site and exquisitely mimics the H[4]B interaction with eNOS ([A] and Figure 4). The specific interaction of the potent inhibitor, SEITU, at the active site is mediated by a pair of bifurcated H-bonds to Glu-363. Two water molecules bridge between the inhibitor and heme propionate. The ethyl group of the inhibitor forms nonbonded contacts with Val-338 and Phe-355. The ureido sulfur is positioned 3.5 Å and 4.0 Å above heme pyrrole B-ring nitrogen and the heme iron, respectively.
Figure 7.
Figure 7. Proposed Mechanism for Pterin in NO BiosynthesisThe uniqueness of the H[4]B–eNOS interaction (Figure 4) and the ability to bind L-Arg at the pterin site present a strong case for the involvement of a pterin radical in NOS catalysis and rule out the possibility of H[4]B ↔ qH[2]B cycling during NO biosynthesis. R represents the dihydroxypropyl side chain at the C6 position on the pterin ring.

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.
