Abstract [en]

We have determined the crystal structure of the bi-functional deaminase/reductase enzyme from Escherichia coli (EcRibD) that catalyzes two consecutive reactions during riboflavin biosynthesis. The polypeptide chain of EcRibD is folded into two domains where the 3D structure of the N-terminal domain (1–145) is similar to cytosine deaminase and the C-terminal domain (146–367) is similar to dihydrofolate reductase. We showed that EcRibD is dimeric and compared our structure to tetrameric RibG, an ortholog from Bacillus subtilis (BsRibG). We have also determined the structure of EcRibD in two binary complexes with the oxidized cofactor (NADP+) and with the substrate analogue ribose-5-phosphate (RP5) and superposed these two in order to mimic the ternary complex. Based on this superposition we propose that the invariant Asp200 initiates the reductive reaction by abstracting a proton from the bound substrate and that the pro-R proton from C4 of the cofactor is transferred to C1 of the substrate. A highly flexible loop is found in the reductase active site (159–173) that appears to control cofactor and substrate binding to the reductase active site and was therefore compared to the corresponding Met20 loop of E. coli dihydrofolate reductase (EcDHFR). Lys152, identified by comparing substrate analogue (RP5) coordination in the reductase active site of EcRibD with the homologous reductase from Methanocaldococcus jannaschii (MjaRED), is invariant among bacterial RibD enzymes and could contribute to the various pathways taken during riboflavin biosynthesis in bacteria and yeast.

Abstract [en]

Structure biology concerns the study of the molecular structures of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, and how these relate to the function. Protein structures are also of importance in structure-based drug design. In this thesis, the work has been carried out in two different projects. The first project concerns structural studies of proteins from the bacterium Escherichia coli and the second of proteins from five different herpesviruses.

 The E. coli project resulted in the structural characterization of three proteins: CaiB, RibD, and YhaK. CaiB is a type-III CoA transferase involved in the metabolism of carnitine. Its molecular structure revealed a spectacular fold where two monomers were interlaced forming an interlocked dimer. RibD, a bi-functional enzyme, catalyzes two consecutive reactions during riboflavin biosynthesis. In an attempt to characterize the mechanism of action of the N-terminal reductase domain, the structure of RibD was also determined in two binary complexes with the oxidized cofactor, NADP+, and with the substrate analogue ribose-5-phosphate. YhaK is a protein of unknown function normally found in low abundance in the cytosol of E. coli and was previously annotated to be a member of the Pirin family. However, some structural features seem to distinguish YhaK from these other Pirin proteins and we showed that YhaK might be regulated by reactive oxygen species.

 The Herpesvirus project resulted in the structural determination of two proteins, the SOX protein and ORF60 from Kaposi’s sarcoma associated herpesvirus (KSHV). SOX, a bi-functional shutoff and exonuclease protein, is involved in the maturation and packaging of the viral genome into the viral capsid and in the host shutoff of cellular proteins at the mRNA level. The SOX structure was also used for modeling DNA binding. The crystallization and preliminary structural studies of ORF60, the small R2 subunit of the ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) from KSHV is also discussed.
