  • Backbone 1 H, 13 C and 15 N chemical shift assignment of full-length human
           uracil DNA glycosylase UNG2
    • Authors: Edith Buchinger; Siv Å. Wiik; Anna Kusnierczyk; Renana Rabe; Per. A. Aas; Bodil Kavli; Geir Slupphaug; Finn L. Aachmann
      Pages: 15 - 22
      Abstract: Human uracil N-glycosylase isoform 2—UNG2 consists of an N-terminal intrinsically disordered regulatory domain (UNG2 residues 1–92, 9.3 kDa) and a C-terminal structured catalytic domain (UNG2 residues 93–313, 25.1 kDa). Here, we report the backbone 1H, 13C, and 15N chemical shift assignment as well as secondary structure analysis of the N-and C-terminal domains of UNG2 representing the full-length UNG2 protein.

  • 1 H, 13 C and 15 N resonance assignments and secondary structures of
           cyclophilin 2 from Trichomonas vaginalis
    • Authors: Tesmine Martin; Yuan-Chao Lou; Sarita Aryal; Jung-Hsiang Tai; Chinpan Chen
      Pages: 27 - 30
      Abstract: Cyclophilins are peptidyl prolyl isomerases that play an important role in a wide variety of biological functions like protein folding and trafficking, intracellular and extracellular signaling pathways, nuclear translocation and in pre-mRNA splicing. Two cyclophilins have been identified in the parasitic organism Trichomonas vaginalis and were named as TvCyP1 and TvCyP2. The 2 enzymes have been found to interact with Myb transcription factors in the parasite which regulate the iron induced expression of ap65-1 gene leading to cytoadherence of the parasite to human vaginal epithelial cells to cause the disease trichomoniasis. TvCyP2 was found to interact specifically with Myb3 to regulate nuclear translocation of the transcription factor. It would be intriguing to identify the binding site of both proteins as it could pave way to newer targets for drug discovery. Here we report the 1H, 13C and 15N resonance assignments and secondary structure information of TvCyP2 that could help us investigate the interaction between Myb3 and TvCyP2 in detail using NMR.

  • NMR backbone resonance assignments of the prodomain variants of BDNF in
           the urea denatured state
    • Authors: Jing Wang; Henrietta Bains; Agustin Anastasia; Clay Bracken
      Pages: 43 - 45
      Abstract: Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a member of the neurotrophin family of proteins which plays a central role in neuronal survival, growth, plasticity and memory. A single Val66Met variant has been identified in the prodomain of human BDNF that is associated with anxiety, depression and memory disorders. The structural differences within the full-length prodomain Val66 and Met66 isoforms could shed light on the mechanism of action of the Met66 and its impact on the development of neuropsychiatric-associated disorders. In the present study, we report the backbone 1H, 13C, and 15N NMR assignments of both full-length Val66 and Met66 prodomains in the presence of 2 M urea. These conditions were utilized to suppress residual structure and aid subsequent native state structural investigations aimed at mapping and identifying variant-dependent conformational differences under native-state conditions.

  • Sequence specific 1 H, 13 C and 15 N resonance assignments of a
           cataract-related variant G57W of human γS-crystallin
    • Authors: Khandekar Jishan Bari; Shrikant Sharma; Kandala V. R. Chary
      Pages: 51 - 55
      Abstract: γS-crystallin is a major structural component of the human eye lens, which maintains its stability over the lifetime of an organism with negligible turnover. The G57W mutant of human γS-crystallin (abbreviated hereafter as γS-G57W) is associated with dominant congenital cataracts. In order to provide a structural basis for the ability of γS-G57W causing cataract, we have cloned, overexpressed, isolated and purified the protein. The 2D [15N–1H]-HSQC spectrum recorded with uniformly 13C/15N-labelled γS-G57W was highly dispersed indicating the protein to adopt an ordered conformation. In this paper, we report almost complete sequence-specific 1H, 13C and 15N resonance assignments of γS-G57W using a suite of heteronuclear 3D NMR experiments.

  • Backbone and Ile-δ1, Leu, Val methyl 1 H, 15 N, and 13 C, chemical shift
           assignments for Rhizopus chinensis lipase
    • Authors: Meng Zhang; Xiao-Wei Yu; G. V. T. Swapna; Gaohua Liu; Rong Xiao; Yan Xu; Gaetano T. Montelione
      Pages: 63 - 68
      Abstract: Lipase r27RCL is a 296-residue, 33 kDa monomeric enzyme with high ester hydrolysis activity, which has significant applications in the baking, paper and leather industries. The lipase gene proRCL from Rhizopus microsporus var. chinensis (also Rhizopus chinensis) CCTCC M201021 was cloned as a fusion construct C-terminal to a maltose-binding protein (MBP) tag, and expressed as MBP-proRCL in an Escherichia coli BL21 trxB (DE3) expression system with uniform 2H,13C,15N-enrichment and Ile-δ1, Leu, and Val 13CH3 methyl labeling. The fusion protein was hydrolyzed by Kex2 protease at the recognition site Lys-Arg between residues −29 and −28 of the prosequence, producing the enzyme form called r27RCL. Here we report extensive backbone 1H, 15N, and 13C, as well as Ile-δ1, Leu, and Val side chain methyl, NMR resonance assignments for r27RCL.

  • 1 H, 13 C, and 15 N resonance assignments of FAS1-IV domain of human
           periostin, a component of extracellular matrix proteins
    • Authors: Hyosuk Yun; Eun-Hee Kim; Chul Won Lee
      Pages: 95 - 98
      Abstract: Periostin, an extracellular matrix protein, is secreted by fibroblasts and is overexpressed in various types of cancers. The four internal repeat fasciclin 1 (FAS1) domains of human periostin play crucial roles in promoting tumor metastasis and progression via interaction with cell surface integrins. Among four FAS1 domains of human periostin, the fourth FAS1 domain (FAS1-IV) was prepared for NMR study, since only FAS1-IV was highly soluble, and showed a well-dispersed 2D 1H-15N HSQC spectrum. Here, we report nearly complete backbone and side chain resonance assignments and a secondary structural analysis of the FAS1-IV domain as first steps toward the structure determination of FAS1-IV of human periostin.

  • 1 H, 13 C, 15 N NMR resonance assignments and secondary structure
           determination of the extra-cellular domain from the human proapoptotic
           TRAIL-R2 death receptor 5 (DR5-ECD)
    • Authors: Antoine Baudin; Anne Guichard; Gavin W. Collie; Sabrina Rousseau; Stéphane Chaignepain; Agnès Hocquellet; Mélanie Berbon; Antoine Loquet; Cameron Mackereth; Gilles Guichard; Benoît Odaert
      Abstract: Death receptors (DR) selectively drive cancer cells to apoptosis upon binding to the Tumor necrosis factor-a-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand (TRAIL). Complex formation induces the oligomerization of the death receptors DR4 (TRAIL-R1) and DR5 (TRAIL-R2) and transduces the apoptogenic signal to their respective death domains, leading to Death Inducing Signaling Complex (DISC) formation, caspase activation and ultimately cell death. Several crystal structures of the ExtraCellular Domain from Death Receptor 5 (DR5-ECD) have been reported in complex with the TRAIL ligand or anti-DR5 antibodies, but none for the isolated protein. In order to fill this gap and to perform binding experiments with TRAIL peptidomimetics, we have produced isotopically labelled DR5-ECD and started a conformational analysis by using high-field 3D NMR spectroscopy. Herein, we present the first resonance assignment of a TRAIL receptor in solution and the determination of its secondary structure from NMR chemical shifts.

  • NMR assignments of the WBSCR27 protein related to Williams-Beuren syndrome
    • Authors: Sofia S. Mariasina; Olga A. Petrova; Ilya A. Osterman; Olga V. Sergeeva; Sergey V. Efimov; Vladimir V. Klochkov; Petr V. Sergiev; Olga A. Dontsova; Tai-huang Huang; Chi-Fon Chang; Vladimir I. Polshakov
      Abstract: Williams-Beuren syndrome is a genetic disorder characterized by physiological and mental abnormalities, and is caused by hemizygous deletion of several genes in chromosome 7. One of the removed genes encodes the WBSCR27 protein. Bioinformatic analysis of the sequence of WBSCR27 indicates that it belongs to the family of SAM-dependent methyltransferases. However, exact cellular functions of this protein or phenotypic consequences of its deficiency are still unknown. Here we report nearly complete 1H, 15N, and 13C chemical shifts assignments of the 26 kDa WBSCR27 protein from Mus musculus in complex with the cofactor S-adenosyl-l-methionine (SAM). Analysis of the assigned chemical shifts allowed us to characterize the protein’s secondary structure and backbone dynamics. The topology of the protein’s fold confirms the assumption that the WBSCR27 protein belongs to the family of class I methyltransferases.

  • 1 H, 15 N, 13 C backbone resonance assignment of human Alkbh5
    • Authors: Jeffrey A. Purslow; Vincenzo Venditti
      Abstract: N6-methyladenosine (m6A) is the most abundant and reversible post-transcriptional modification in eukaryotic mRNA and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA). The central role of m6A in various physiological processes has generated considerable biological and pharmacological interest. Alkbh5 (AlkB homologue 5) belongs to the AlkB family and is a non-heme Fe(II)/α-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase that selectively catalyzes the oxidative demethylation of m6A. Herein, we report the backbone 1H, 15N, 13C chemical shift assignment of a fully active, 26 kDa construct of human Alkbh5. Experiments were acquired at 25 °C by heteronuclear multidimensional NMR spectroscopy. Collectively, 92% of all backbone resonances were assigned, with 195 out of a possible 212 residues assigned in the 1H–15N TROSY spectrum. Using the program TALOS+, a secondary structure prediction was generated from the assigned backbone resonance that is consistent with the previously reported X-ray structure of the enzyme. The reported assignment will permit investigations of the protein structural dynamics anticipated to provide crucial insight regarding fundamental aspects in the recognition and enzyme regulation processes.

  • Backbone NMR assignments of HypF-N under conditions generating toxic and
           non-toxic oligomers
    • Authors: Jayneil R. Patel; Yingqi Xu; Claudia Capitini; Fabrizio Chiti; Alfonso De Simone
      Abstract: The HypF protein is involved in the maturation and regulation of hydrogenases. The N-terminal domain of HypF (HypF-N) has served as a key model system to study the pathways of protein amyloid formation and the nature of the toxicity of pre-fibrilar protein oligomers. This domain can aggregate into two forms of oligomers having significantly different toxic effects when added to neuronal cultures. Here, NMR assignments of HypF-N backbone resonances are presented in its native state and under the conditions favouring the formation of toxic and non-toxic oligomers. The analyses of chemical shifts provide insights into the protein conformational state and the possible pathways leading to the formation of different types of oligomers.

  • Backbone resonance assignments of complexes of apo human calmodulin bound
           to IQ motif peptides of voltage-dependent sodium channels Na V 1.1, Na V
           1.4 and Na V 1.7
    • Authors: Holly M. Isbell; Adina M. Kilpatrick; Zesen Lin; Ryan Mahling; Madeline A. Shea
      Abstract: Human voltage-gated sodium (NaV) channels are critical for initiating and propagating action potentials in excitable cells. Nine isoforms have different roles but similar topologies, with a pore-forming α-subunit and auxiliary transmembrane β-subunits. NaV pathologies lead to debilitating conditions including epilepsy, chronic pain, cardiac arrhythmias, and skeletal muscle paralysis. The ubiquitous calcium sensor calmodulin (CaM) binds to an IQ motif in the C-terminal tail of the α-subunit of all NaV isoforms, and contributes to calcium-dependent pore-gating in some channels. Previous structural studies of calcium-free (apo) CaM bound to the IQ motifs of NaV1.2, NaV1.5, and NaV1.6 showed that CaM binding was mediated by the C-domain of CaM (CaMC), while the N-domain (CaMN) made no detectable contacts. To determine whether this domain-specific recognition mechanism is conserved in other NaV isoforms, we used solution NMR spectroscopy to assign the backbone resonances of complexes of apo CaM bound to peptides of IQ motifs of NaV1.1, NaV1.4, and NaV1.7. Analysis of chemical shift differences showed that peptide binding only perturbed resonances in CaMC; resonances of CaMN were identical to free CaM. Thus, CaMC residues contribute to the interface with the IQ motif, while CaMN is available to interact elsewhere on the channel.

      Abstract: K-Ras is a key driver of oncogenesis, accounting for approximately 80% of Ras-driven human cancers. The small GTPase cycles between an inactive, GDP-bound and an active, GTP-bound state, regulated by guanine nucleotide exchange factors and GTPase activating proteins, respectively. Activated K-Ras regulates cell proliferation, differentiation and survival by signaling through several effector pathways, including Raf-MAPK. Oncogenic mutations that impair the GTPase activity of K-Ras result in a hyperactivated state, leading to uncontrolled cellular proliferation and tumorogenesis. A cysteine mutation at glycine 12 is commonly found in K-Ras associated cancers, and has become a recent focus for therapeutic intervention. We report here 1HN, 15N, and 13C resonance assignments for the 19.3 kDa (aa 1–169) human K-Ras protein harboring an oncogenic G12C mutation in the GDP-bound form (K-RASG12C-GDP), using heteronuclear, multidimensional NMR spectroscopy. Backbone 1H–15N correlations have been assigned for all non-proline residues, except for the first methionine residue.

  • 1 H, 15 N and 13 C resonance assignments of the J-domain of co-chaperone
           Sis1 from Saccharomyces cerevisiae
    • Authors: Glaucia M. S. Pinheiro; Gisele C. Amorim; Anwar Iqbal; C. H. I. Ramos; Fabio C. L. Almeida
      Abstract: Protein folding in the cell is usually aided by molecular chaperones, from which the Hsp70 (Hsp = heat shock protein) family has many important roles, such as aiding nascent folding and participating in translocation. Hsp70 has ATPase activity which is stimulated by binding to the J-domain present in co-chaperones from the Hsp40 family. Hsp40s have many functions, as for instance the binding to partially folded proteins to be delivered to Hsp70. However, the presence of the J-domain characterizes Hsp40s or, by this reason, as J-proteins. The J-domain alone can stimulate Hsp70 ATPase activity. Apparently, it also maintains the same conformation as in the whole protein although structural information on full J-proteins is still missing. This work reports the 1H, 15N and 13C resonance assignments of the J-domain of a Hsp40 from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, named Sis1. Secondary structure and order parameter prediction from chemical shifts are also reported. Altogether, the data show that Sis1 J-domain is highly structured and predominantly formed by α-helices, results that are in very good agreement with those previously reported for the crystallographic structure.

  • Backbone 1 H, 13 C, and 15 N resonance assignments of the ligand binding
           domain of the human wildtype glucocorticoid receptor and the F602S mutant
    • Authors: Christian Köhler; Göran Carlström; Stefan Tångefjord; Tineke Papavoine; Matti Lepistö; Karl Edman; Mikael Akke
      Abstract: The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is a nuclear hormone receptor that regulates key genes controlling development, metabolism, and the immune response. GR agonists are efficacious for treatment of inflammatory, allergic, and immunological disorders. Steroid hormone binding to the ligand-binding domain (LBD) of GR is known to change the structural and dynamical properties of the receptor, which in turn control its interactions with DNA and various co-regulators and drive the pharmacological response. Previous biophysical studies of the GR LBD have required the use of mutant forms to overcome issues with limited protein stability and high aggregation propensity. However, these mutant variants are known to also influence the functional response of the receptor. Here we report a successful protocol for protein expression, purification, and NMR characterization of the wildtype human GR LBD. We achieved chemical shift assignments for 90% of the LBD backbone resonances, with 216 out of 240 non-proline residues assigned in the 1H–15N TROSY spectrum. These advancements form the basis for future investigations of allosteric effects in GR signaling.

  • Resonance assignments of an α-synuclein fibril prepared in Tris buffer at
           moderate ionic strength
    • Authors: Alexander M. Barclay; Dhruva D. Dhavale; Joseph M. Courtney; Paul T. Kotzbauer; Chad M. Rienstra
      Abstract: Fibrils of the protein α-synuclein (α-syn) are implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders. We have reported a high-resolution structure (PDB 2N0A) of an α-syn fibril form prepared by in vitro incubation of monomeric protein in 50 mM sodium phosphate buffer pH 7.4 with 0.1 mM EDTA and 0.01% sodium azide. In parallel with this structure determination, ongoing studies of small molecule ligands binding to α-syn fibrils, prepared in 2-amino-2-(hydroxymethyl)-1,3-propanediol (Tris) buffer, have been in progress, and it is therefore of interest to determine the structural similarity of these forms. Here we report the 13C and 15N resonance assignments for α-syn fibrils prepared with Tris–HCl buffer (pH 7.7 at 37 °C) and 100 mM NaCl. These fibrillization conditions yield a form with fibril core chemical shifts highly similar to those we reported (BMRB 16939) in the course of determining the high-resolution 2N0A structure, with the exception of some small perturbations from T44 to V55, including two sets of peaks observed for residues T44–V48. Additional differences occur in the patterns of observed residues in the primarily unstructured N-terminus. These results demonstrate a common fold of the fibril core for α-syn fibrils prepared in phosphate or Tris–HCl buffer at moderate ionic strength.

  • 1 H, 13 C, and 15 N resonance assignments of CW domain of the N
           -methyltransferase ASHH2 free and bound to the mono-, di- and
           tri-methylated histone H3 tail peptides
    • Authors: Olena Dobrovolska; Maxim Bril’kov; Øyvind Ødegård-Fougner; Rein Aasland; Øyvind Halskau
      Abstract: The ASHH2 CW domain is responsible for recognizing the methylation state at lysine 4 of histone 3 N-terminal tails and implicated in the recruitment of the ASHH2 methyltransferase enzyme correctly to the histones. The ASHH2 CW domain binds H3 lysine motifs that can be either mono-, di-, or tri-methylated [ARTK(meX)QTAR, where X denotes the number of methylations], but binds strongest to monomethylated instances (Kd values reported in the range of 1 µm to 500 nM). Hoppmann et al. published the uncomplexed NMR structure of an ASHH2 CW domain in 2011. Here we document the assignment of a shortened ASHH2 CW construct, CW42, with similar binding affinity and better expression yields than the one used to solve the uncomplexed structure. We also perform 1H–15N HSQC-monitored titrations that document at which protein–peptide ratios the complex is saturated. Backbone resonance assignments are presented for this shortened ASHH2 CW domain alone and bound to an H3 histone tail mimicking peptide monomethylated on lysine 4 (ARTK(me1)QTAR). Likewise, the assignment was also performed for the protein in complex with the dimethylated (ARTK(me2)QTAR) and trimethylated (ARTK(me3)QTAR) peptide. Overall, these two latter situations displayed a similar perturbation of shifts as the mono-methylated instance. In the case of the monomethylated histone tail mimic, side-chain assignment of CW42 in this complex was performed and reported in addition to backbone assignment, in preparation of a future solution structure determination and dynamics characterization of the CW42–ARTK(me1)QTAR complex.

  • 1 H, 13 C, 15 N resonance assignment of human YAP 50–171 fragment
    • Authors: Michael Feichtinger; Tomáš Sára; Gerald Platzer; Borja Mateos; Fedir Bokhovchuk; Patrick Chène; Robert Konrat
      Abstract: Yes associated protein (YAP) is an intrinsically disordered protein that plays a major role in the Hippo pathway, regulating organ size, cell proliferation, apoptosis, and is associated with cancer development. Therefore, the binding between YAP and TEAD is an interesting target for cancer therapy. The TEAD binding domain of YAP was mapped to protein residues 50–171. To obtain further structural insights into this 12 kDa segment of YAP, we report a backbone and a partial sidechain assignment of recombinant YAP 50–171.

  • Backbone chemical shift assignments of the glycine cleavage complex H
           protein of Escherichia coli
    • Authors: Usha Yadav; Monica Sundd
      Abstract: Glycine cleavage complex H protein (GcvH) is one of the four components that form the glycine cleavage complex (GCS), essential for the synthesis of C1 (one-carbon units) for cell metabolism, by the oxidative cleavage of glycine. The activity of this complex is induced in the presence of exogenous glycine, and is repressed by purines. GCS, in cooperation with GCA (serine hydroxymethyltransferase) regulates the endogenous levels of glycine and C1 units in the cell. GcvH, the lipoamide containing component of the complex, plays an indispensable role in this reaction, as its prosthetic group shuttles between the active site of the three other components of the GCS complex sequentially. In environments rich in exogenous lipoic acid, GcvH is converted to lipoyl-GcvH by Lipoate protein ligase (LplA), by the salvage pathway. When exogenous lipoic acid is deficient, it is post-translationally modified to lipoyl-GcvH by the consecutive action of two enzymes, (a) Lipoate protein ligase B (LipB) and (b) Lipoyl synthase (LipA). Although, the crystal structure has been determined for Escherichia coli GcvH, no information exists for its interaction with LipB or LipA. Therefore, we plan to study its interactions with the aforementioned enzymes. As a first step, we have carried out the complete backbone chemical shift assignments of the E. coli glycine cleavage complex H protein in its apo-form, as well as its C8- intermediate.

  • Backbone resonance assignment of the response regulator protein PhoB N
           F20D from Escherichia coli
    • Authors: Xinhui Kou; Xinghong Liu; Yixiang Liu; Conggang Li; Maili Liu; Ling Jiang
      Abstract: PhoB is a response regulator of the PhoR/PhoB two-component signal transduction system that is involved in the regulation of the phosphate (Pho) regulon of Escherichia coli. PhoB has two domains, receiver domain and effector domain. The receiver domain can be phosphorylated by its cognate histidine kinase PhoR and the phosphorylation induces conformational changes of the full length protein of PhoB that promote the DNA binding and transcription. Three-dimensional crystal structures of PhoB receiver domain (PhoBN) have been solved under apo or BeF3− (a phosphoryl analog) binding forms and it has been found that PhoBN is dimerized in both situations. However, we have found that the apo form of PhoBN has multiple conformational changes in solution that is hard to be distinguished by using NMR spectroscopy, while the mutagenesis of F20D PhoBN gives homogeneous dispersed signals in HSQC spectrum indicating a relatively uniform conformation. Meanwhile the F20D mutant has the same phosphorylation activity as the wild type protein. Here we report the backbone assignment of PhoBNF20D mutant. The chemical shift (HN, N, CO, Cα and Cβ) analysis shows that the predicted regions of secondary structure are in good agreement with those observed in the crystal structure of apo PhoBN. Therefore, the backbone chemical shifts assignment of PhoBNF20D mutant would be useful for studying the structure and dynamics of PhoB receiver domain and it has significance for explaining the mechanism of phosphorylation in TCSs.

  • 1 H, 13 C, and 15 N chemical shift assignments of a G-quadruplex forming
           sequence within the KRAS proto-oncogene promoter region
    • Authors: Julien Marquevielle; M. V. Vasantha Kumar; Jean-Louis Mergny; Gilmar F. Salgado
      Abstract: Single stranded guanine rich DNA (or RNA) sequences adopt noncanonical secondary structures called G-quadruplexes (G4). Functionally, quadruplexes control gene transcription and regulate activities such as replication, gene recombination or alternative splicing. Hence they are potential targets for cancer, neuronal, and viral related diseases. KRAS is one of the most mutated oncogenes in the genome of cancer cells and contains a nuclease hypersensitive element (NHE) sequence capable of forming G-quadruplexes via its six runs of guanines. In our work, we are interested in the NMR structure of the major G4 scaffold formed in the KRAS NHE region with a mutated sequence of 22 residues. Here, we report 1H, 13C and 15N chemical shift assignments the G4 formed within KRAS22RT sequence.
