Zusammenfassung
The catalytic activity of the pyridoxal 5'-phosphate-dependent tryptophan synthase alpha(2)/beta(2) complex is allosterically regulated. The hydrogen bond between the helix betaH6 residue betaSer(178) and the loop alphaL6 residue Gly(181) was shown to be critical in ligand-induced inter-subunit signaling, with the alpha-beta communication being completely lost in the mutant betaSer(178) --> Pro (Marabotti, A., De Biase, D., Tramonti, A., Bettati, S., and Mozzarelli, A (2001) J. Biol Chem. 276,17747-17753). The structural basis of the impaired allosteric regulation was investigated by determining the crystal structures of the mutant betaSer(178) --> Pro in the absence and presence of the a-subunit ligands indole-3- acetylglycine and glycerol 3-phosphate. The mutation causes local and distant conformational changes especially in the beta-subunit. The ligand-free structure exhibits larger differences at the N-terminal part of helix betaH6, whereas the enzyme ligand complexes show differences at the C-terminal side. In contrast to the wild-type enzyme loop alphaL6 remains in an open conformation even in the presence of alpha-ligands. This effects the equilibrium between active and inactive conformations of the alpha-active site, altering k(cat) and K- m, and forms the structural basis for the missing allosteric communication between the alpha- and beta-subunits.
