  • Chemical shift assignments of the connexin37 carboxyl terminal domain
    • Authors: Hanjun Li; Gaelle Spagnol; Tasha K. Pontifex; Janis M. Burt; Paul L. Sorgen
      Pages: 137 - 141
      Abstract: Connexin37 (Cx37) is a gap junction protein involved in cell-to-cell communication in the vasculature and other tissues. Cx37 suppresses proliferation of vascular cells involved in tissue development and repair in vivo, as well as tumor cells. Global deletion of Cx37 in mice leads to enhanced vasculogenesis in development, as well as collateralgenesis and angiogenesis in response to injury, which together support improved tissue remodeling and recovery following ischemic injury. Here we report the 1H, 15N, and 13C resonance assignments for an important regulatory domain of Cx37, the carboxyl terminus (CT; C233-V333). The predicted secondary structure of the Cx37CT domain based on the chemical shifts is that of an intrinsically disordered protein. In the 1H–15N HSQC, N-terminal residues S254-Y259 displayed a second weaker peak and residues E261-Y266 had significant line broadening. These residues are flanked by prolines (P250, P258, P260, and P268), suggesting proline cis–trans isomerization. Overall, these assignments will be useful for identifying the binding sites for intra- and inter-molecular interactions that affect Cx37 channel activity.

  • Sequence-specific backbone resonance assignments and microsecond timescale
           molecular dynamics simulation of human eosinophil-derived neurotoxin
    • Authors: Donald Gagné; Chitra Narayanan; Khushboo Bafna; Laurie-Anne Charest; Pratul K. Agarwal; Nicolas Doucet
      Pages: 143 - 149
      Abstract: Eight active canonical members of the pancreatic-like ribonuclease A (RNase A) superfamily have been identified in human. All structural homologs share similar RNA-degrading functions, while also cumulating other various biological activities in different tissues. The functional homologs eosinophil-derived neurotoxin (EDN, or RNase 2) and eosinophil cationic protein (ECP, or RNase 3) are known to be expressed and secreted by eosinophils in response to infection, and have thus been postulated to play an important role in host defense and inflammatory response. We recently initiated the biophysical and dynamical investigation of several vertebrate RNase homologs and observed that clustering residue dynamics appear to be linked with the phylogeny and biological specificity of several members. Here we report the 1H, 13C and 15N backbone resonance assignments of human EDN (RNase 2) and its molecular dynamics simulation on the microsecond timescale, providing means to pursue this comparative atomic-scale functional and dynamical analysis by NMR and computation over multiple time frames.

  • Backbone resonance assignments of the Escherichia coli 62 kDa
           protein, Hsp31
    • Authors: Jihong Kim; Dongwook Choi; Chankyu Park; Kyoung-Seok Ryu
      Pages: 159 - 163
      Abstract: Dimeric Hsp31 protein was first characterized as a holding chaperone of Escherichia coli (E. coli), and has been suggested as having protease activity due to the presence of a potential catalytic triad, Cys185, His186, and Asp214. However, it has recently been reported that Hsp31 displays a relatively strong glyoxalase III activity that can decompose reactive carbonyl species (methylglyoxal and glyoxal) in the absence of additional cofactor. Hsp31 is a representative member of the DJ-1/ThiJ/PfpI protein superfamily, and the importance of DJ-1 protein in Parkinson’s disease has been well known. The structural flexibility of the long loop region, which encompasses from the P- to the A-domain, is important for the chaperone activity of Hsp31. The backbone chemical shifts (CSs) would be useful for studying the structural changes of Hsp31 that are critical for the holding chaperone activity, and also for deciphering the switching mechanism between the glyoxalase III and the chaperone. Here, we report the backbone CSs (HN, N, CO, Cα, and Cβ) of the deuterated Hsp31 protein (62 kDa). The CS analysis showed that the predicted regions of secondary structures are in good agreement with those observed in the previous crystal structure of Hsp31.

  • Near-complete backbone resonance assignments of acid-denatured human
           cytochrome c in dimethylsulfoxide: a prelude to studying interactions with
    • Authors: Andreas Ioannis Karsisiotis; Oliver M. Deacon; Colin Macdonald; Tharin M. A. Blumenschein; Geoffrey R. Moore; Jonathan A. R. Worrall
      Pages: 165 - 168
      Abstract: Human cytochrome c plays a central role in the mitochondrial electron transfer chain and in the intrinsic apoptosis pathway. Through the interaction with the phospholipid cardiolipin, cytochrome c triggers release of pro-apoptotic factors, including itself, from the mitochondrion into the cytosol of cells undergoing apoptosis. The cytochrome c/cardiolipin complex has been extensively studied through various spectroscopies, most recently with high-field solution and solid-state NMR spectroscopies, but there is no agreement between the various studies on key structural features of cytochrome c in its complex with cardiolipin. In the present study, we report backbone 1H, 13C, 15N resonance assignments of acid-denatured human cytochrome c in the aprotic solvent dimethylsulfoxide. These have led to the assignment of a reference 2D 1H-15N HSQC spectrum in which out of the 99 non-proline residues 87% of the backbone amides are assigned. These assignments are being used in an interrupted H/D exchange strategy to map the binding site of cardiolipin on human cytochrome c.

  • Backbone and side-chain resonance assignments for the tmRNA-binding
           protein, SmpB, from Mycobacterium tuberculosis
    • Authors: Juanjuan Yang; Yindi Liu; Zhao Liu; Chun Meng; Donghai Lin
      Pages: 175 - 179
      Abstract: Small protein B (SmpB) is an essential molecule in trans-translation which is a universal biological pathway for protein synthesis in bacteria. Trans-translation can release stalled ribosomes from defective mRNAs and target tag-protein fragments for degradation, and then restart protein synthesis. The SmpB-tmRNA complex coordinating with other components of the trans-translation system, plays vital roles in Mycobacterium tuberculosis under both stress conditions and non-replicating conditions. Thus, elucidation of molecular details and dynamic properties of the SmpB-tmRNA interaction is a crucial step towards effectively blocking trans-translation process to shorten the duration of tuberculosis treatment. Here, we report resonance assignments for 1H, 13C and 15N of M. tuberculosis SmpB (MtSmpB, spanning residues 4–133) protein determined by a suite of 2D/3D heteronuclear NMR experiments along with predicted the secondary structure.

  • Backbone NMR assignments of tryparedoxin, the central protein in the
           hydroperoxide detoxification cascade of African trypanosomes, in the
           oxidized and reduced form
    • Authors: Annika Wagner; Erika Diehl; R. Luise Krauth-Siegel; Ute A. Hellmich
      Pages: 193 - 196
      Abstract: Tryparedoxin (Tpx) is a pivotal protein in the redox-metabolism of trypanosomatid parasites. Tpx has previously been identified as a potential target for drug development in the fight against human African sleeping sickness caused by Trypanosoma brucei. Tpx belongs to the thioredoxin superfamily and acts as an oxidoreductase in the parasite’s cytoplasm. It contains a WCPPC active site motif, which enables the protein to undergo thiol-disulfide exchange. To promote future protein-drug interaction analyses, we report the 1H, 13C and 15N backbone chemical shift assignments for both the oxidized and reduced states of Tpx. The redox state of the protein has a significant impact on the chemical shifts of the residues at the active site of the protein, especially on the two redox active site cysteines. The NMR assignments presented here will be a prerequisite for investigating drug binding to Tpx in molecular detail and to drive further drug optimization.

  • 1 H, 13 C and 15 N NMR assignments of a bacterial immunoglobulin-like
           domain (group 2) of a protein of a bacterium Paenarthrobacter aurescens
    • Authors: Asmita D. Pawar; Deepshikha Verma; Rajeev Raman; Yogendra Sharma; Kandala V. R. Chary
      Pages: 203 - 206
      Abstract: The bacterial immunoglobulin-like (Big) domain is one of the prevalent domain types, which facilitates cell–cell adhesion by assembling into multi-domain architectures. We selected a four Big_2 domain protein (named ‘Arig’) from a Gram positive, Paenarthrobacter aurescens TC1 (known earlier as Arthrobacter aurescens TC1). In an attempt to characterize structural and ligand-binding features of individual Big_2 domains, we have cloned, overexpressed, isolated and purified the second Big_2 domain of Arig along with a few of its adjacent Big_2 domain residues (residue 143 to 269) referred to as ‘Arig2’. The 13C/15N-doubly-labeled His-tagged Arig2 (133 residues long) showed an ordered conformation as revealed by the well dispersed 2D [15N-1H]-HSQC spectrum. Subsequently, a suite of heteronuclear 3D NMR experiments has enabled almost complete 1H, 13C and 15N NMR resonance assignments of Arig2.

  • Backbone and side-chain assignments for a novel CBM69 starch binding
           domain AmyP-SBD
    • Authors: Xinxin Li; Jigang Yu; Jiahai Zhang; Hongbin Sun; Xuecheng Zhang
      Pages: 235 - 237
      Abstract: Starch binding domains (SBDs) are important for the functions of glycoside hydrolysis enzymes such as α-amylases, they have great application potential in biotechnology and industries. AmyP is a newly identified α-amylase belonging to a new subfamily 37 of glycoside hydrolysis enzyme family 13. AmyP shows preferential degradation to soluble starch, in which its C-terminal starch binding domain, AmyP-SBD, plays an important role. AmyP-SBD shares very low sequence similarity with other biochemically characterized SBDs and was assigned to a new carbohydrate binding module family CBM69. Intriguingly, AmyP-SBD is unfolded in free form, and substrate analogue β-cyclodextrin may induce it to fold into a relatively rigid state. Structure determination for AmyP-SBD will be helpful for understanding its unique properties. Here, we report the backbone and side-chain 1H, 13C and 15N resonance assignments of folded AmyP-SBD, as a basis for structure determination and further studies.

  • 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
      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.

  • Chemical shift assignment of a thermophile frataxin
    • Authors: Masooma Rasheed; Robert Yan; Geoff Kelly; Annalisa Pastore
      Abstract: Frataxin is the protein responsible for the genetically-inherited neurodegenerative disease Friedreich’s ataxia caused by partial silencing of the protein and loss of function. Although the frataxin function is not yet entirely clear, it has been associated to the machine that builds iron–sulfur clusters, essential prosthetic groups involved in several processes and is strongly conserved in organisms from bacteria to humans. Two of its important molecular partners are the protein NFS1 (or IscS in bacteria), that is the desulfurase which converts cysteine to alanine and produces sulfur, and ISU (or IscU), the scaffold protein which transiently accepts the cluster. While bacterial frataxin has been extensively characterized, only few eukaryotic frataxins have been described. Here we report the 1H, 13C and 15N backbone and side-chain chemical shift assignments of frataxin from Chaetomium thermophilum, a thermophile increasingly used by virtue of its stability.

  • NMR assignments of the N-terminal signaling domain of the TonB-dependent
           outer membrane transducer PupB
    • Authors: Jaime L. Jensen; Qiong Wu; Christopher L. Colbert
      Abstract: Outer membrane TonB-dependent transducers (TBDTs) actively transport ferric siderophore complexes from the extracellular environment into Gram-negative bacteria. They also participate in a cell-surface signaling regulatory pathway that results in upregulation of the transducer itself, in response to iron-deplete conditions. The TBDT PupB transports ferric pseudobactin, and signals through its N-terminal signaling domain (NTSD), while the TBDT homolog PupA is signaling-inactive. Here, we report the NMR chemical shift assignments of the PupB-NTSD. This information will provide the basis for structural characterization of the PupB-NTSD to further explore its signaling properties.

  • 1 H, 13 C and 15 N chemical shift assignment of lissencephaly-1 homology
           (LisH) domain homodimer of human two-hybrid-associated protein 1 with
           RanBPM (Twa1)
    • Authors: Talita S. de Araujo; Marcius S. Almeida
      Abstract: The CTLH complex is a large, highly conserved eukaryotic complex composed of eight proteins that has been associated to several cellular functions, more often described as an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex involved in protein degradation through ubiquitination but also via vacuole-dependent degradation. A common feature observed in several components of this complex is the presence of the domains lissencephaly-1 homology (LisH) and C-terminal to LisH (CTLH). The LisH domain is found in several proteins involved in chromosome segregation, microtubule dynamics, and cell migration. Also, this domain participates in protein dimerization, besides affecting protein half-life, and influencing in specific cellular localization. Among the proteins found in the CTLH complex, Twa1 (Two-hybrid-associated protein 1 with RanBPM), also known as Gid8 (glucose-induced degradation protein 8 homolog) is the smallest, being a good model for structural studies by NMR. In this work we report the chemical shift assignments of the homodimeric LisH domain of Twa1, as a first step to determine its solution structure.

  • Backbone 1 H, 13 C and 15 N resonance assignments of the OB domain of the
           single stranded DNA-binding protein hSSB2 (NABP1/OBFC2A) and chemical
           shift mapping of the DNA-binding interface
    • Authors: Ruvini Kariawasam; Maddison Knight; Roland Gamsjaeger; Liza Cubeddu
      Abstract: Single stranded DNA-binding proteins (SSBs) are essential for the maintenance of genome integrity and are required in in all known cellular organisms. Over the last 10 years, the role of two new human SSBs, hSSB1 (NABP2/OBFC2B) and hSSB2 (NABP1/OBFC2A), has been described and characterised in various important DNA repair processes. Both these proteins are made up of a conserved oligonucleotide-binding (OB) fold that is responsible for ssDNA recognition as well a unique flexible carboxy-terminal extension involved in protein–protein interactions. Due to their similar domain organisation, hSSB1 and hSSB2 have been found to display some overlapping functions. However, several studies have also revealed cell- and tissue-specific roles for these two proteins, most likely due to small but significant differences in the protein sequence of the OB domains. While the molecular details of ssDNA binding by hSSB1 has been studied extensively, comparatively little is known about hSSB2. In this study, we use NMR solution-state backbone resonance assignments of the OB domain of hSSB2 to map the ssDNA interaction interface. Our data reveal that ssDNA binding by hSSB2 is driven by four key aromatic residues in analogy to hSSB1, however, some significant differences in the chemical shift perturbations are observed, reflecting differences in ssDNA recognition. Future studies will aim at determining the structural basis of these differences and thus help to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the functional divergences that these novel hSSBs display in the context of genome maintenance.

  • 1 H, 15 N, 13 C backbone resonance assignment of the C-terminal domain of
           enzyme I from Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis
    • Authors: Rochelle Rea Dotas; Vincenzo Venditti
      Abstract: Phosphoenolpyruvate binding to the C-terminal domain (EIC) of enzyme I of the bacterial phosphotransferase system (PTS) initiates a phosphorylation cascade that results in sugar translocation across the cell membrane and controls a large number of essential pathways in bacterial metabolism. EIC undergoes an expanded to compact conformational equilibrium that is regulated by ligand binding and determines the phosphorylation state of the overall PTS. Here, we report the backbone 1H, 15N and 13C chemical shift assignments of the 70 kDa EIC dimer from the thermophilic bacterium Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis. Assignments were obtained at 70 °C by heteronuclear multidimensional NMR spectroscopy. In total, 90% of all backbone resonances were assigned, with 264 out of a possible 299 residues assigned in the 1H–15N TROSY spectrum. The secondary structure predicted from the assigned backbone resonance using the program TALOS+ is in good agreement with the X-ray crystal structure of T. tengcongensis EIC. The reported assignments will allow detailed structural and thermodynamic investigations on the coupling between ligand binding and conformational dynamics in EIC.

  • 1 H, 13 C and 15 N backbone resonance assignments of the β-lactamase BlaP
           from Bacillus licheniformis 749 / C and two mutational variants
    • Authors: David Thorn; Jennifer Kay; Noureddine Rhazi; Mireille Dumoulin; Alessandra Corazza; Christian Damblon
      Abstract: Class A β-lactamases have been widely used as versatile scaffolds to create hybrid (or chimeric) proteins for a series of applications ranging from basic research to medicine. We have, in particular, used the β-lactamase BlaP from Bacillus licheniformis 749/C (BlaP) as a protein scaffold to create model polyglutamine (polyQ) proteins in order to better understand the mechanism(s) by which an expanded polyQ sequence triggers the formation of amyloid fibrils. The model chimeras were designed by inserting a polyQ sequence of various lengths at two different locations within BlaP (i.e. position 197 or position 216) allowing a detailed comparison of the effects of subtle differences in the environment of the polyQ sequence on its ability to trigger protein aggregation. In order to investigate the effects of the polyQ insertion at both positions on the structure, stability and dynamics of BlaP, a series of NMR experiments including H/D exchange are foreseen. Accordingly, as necessitated by these studies, here we report the NMR assignment of the wild-type BlaP (BlaP-WT) and of the two reference proteins, BlaP197Q0 and BlaP216Q0, wherein a Pro-Gly dipeptide has been introduced at position 197 and 216, respectively; this dipeptide originates from the addition of the Sma1 restriction site at the genetic level to allow further polyQ sequence insertion.

  • NMR assignments of the N-terminal domain of Staphylococcus aureus
           hibernation promoting factor (SaHPF)
    • Authors: Konstantin S. Usachev; Rustam Kh. Ayupov; Shamil Z. Validov; Iskander Sh. Khusainov; Marat M. Yusupov
      Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus: hibernation-promoting factor (SaHPF) is a 22.2 kDa stationary-phase protein that binds to the ribosome and turns it to the inactive form favoring survival under stress. Sequence analysis has shown that this protein is combination of two homolog proteins obtained in Escherichia coli—ribosome hibernation promoting factor (HPF) (11,000 Da) and ribosome modulation factor RMF (6500 Da). Binding site of E. coli HPF on the ribosome have been shown by X-ray study of Thermus thermophilus ribosome complex. Hence, recent studies reported that the interface is markedly different between 100S from S. aureus and E. coli. Cryo-electron microscopy structure of 100S S. aureus ribosomes reveal that the SaHPF-NTD binds to the 30S subunit as observed for shorter variants of HPF in other species and the C-terminal domain (CTD) protrudes out of each ribosome in order to mediate dimerization. SaHPF-NTD binds to the small subunit similarly to its homologs EcHPF, EcYfiA, and a plastid-specific YfiA. Furthermore, upon binding to the small subunit, the SaHPF-NTD occludes several antibiotic binding sites at the A site (hygromycin B, tetracycline), P site (edeine) and E site (pactamycin, kasugamycin). In order to elucidate the structure, dynamics and function of SaHPF-NTD from S. aureus, here we report the backbone and side chain resonance assignments for SaHPF-NTD. Analysis of the backbone chemical shifts by TALOS+ suggests that SaHPF-NTD contains two α-helices and four β-strands (β1-α1-β2-β3-β4-α2 topology). Investigating the long-term survival of S. aureus and other bacteria under antibiotic pressure could lead to advances in antibiotherapy.

  • 1 H, 15 N, 13 C backbone resonance assignments of human phosphoglycerate
           kinase in a transition state analogue complex with ADP, 3-phosphoglycerate
           and magnesium trifluoride
    • Authors: Zhalgas Serimbetov; Nicola J. Baxter; Matthew J. Cliff; Jonathan P. Waltho
      Abstract: Human phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) is an energy generating glycolytic enzyme that catalyses the transfer of a phosphoryl group from 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate (BPG) to ADP producing 3-phosphoglycerate (3PG) and ATP. PGK is composed of two α/β Rossmann-fold domains linked by a central α-helix and the active site is located in the cleft formed between the N-domain which binds BPG or 3PG, and the C-domain which binds the nucleotides ADP or ATP. Domain closure is required to bring the two substrates into close proximity for phosphoryl transfer to occur, however previous structural studies involving a range of native substrates and substrate analogues only yielded open or partly closed PGK complexes. X-ray crystallography using magnesium trifluoride (MgF3 −) as a isoelectronic and near-isosteric mimic of the transferring phosphoryl group (PO3 −), together with 3PG and ADP has been successful in trapping human PGK in a fully closed transition state analogue (TSA) complex. In this work we report the 1H, 15N and 13C backbone resonance assignments of human PGK in the solution conformation of the fully closed PGK:3PG:MgF3:ADP TSA complex. Assignments were obtained by heteronuclear multidimensional NMR spectroscopy. In total, 97% of all backbone resonances were assigned in the complex, with 385 out of a possible 399 residues assigned in the 1H–15N TROSY spectrum. Prediction of solution secondary structure from a chemical shift analysis using the TALOS-N webserver is in good agreement with the published X-ray crystal structure of this complex.

    • Authors: Chunjie Liang; Rui Hu; Theresa A. Ramelot; Michael A. Kennedy; Xuegang Li; Yunhuang Yang; Jiang Zhu; Maili Liu
      Abstract: Protein CGL2373 from Corynebacterium glutamicum, which is 155 amino acids long and 17.7 kDa, is a member of the polyketide_cyc2 family. As a potential polyketide cyclase, it may play an important role in the biosynthesis of aromatic polyketides that are the source of many bioactive molecules. Here we report the complete 1H, 13C and 15N chemical shift assignments of CGL2373, which lays a foundation for further structural and functional research.

  • Backbone resonance assignments of complexes of human voltage-dependent
           sodium channel Na V 1.2 IQ motif peptide bound to apo calmodulin and to
           the C-domain fragment of apo calmodulin
    • Authors: Ryan Mahling; Adina M. Kilpatrick; Madeline A. Shea
      Abstract: Human voltage-gated sodium channel NaV1.2 has a single pore-forming α-subunit and two transmembrane β-subunits. Expressed primarily in the brain, NaV1.2 is critical for initiation and propagation of action potentials. Milliseconds after the pore opens, sodium influx is terminated by inactivation processes mediated by regulatory proteins including calmodulin (CaM). Both calcium-free (apo) CaM and calcium-saturated CaM bind tightly to an IQ motif in the C-terminal tail of the α-subunit. Our thermodynamic studies and solution structure (2KXW) of a C-domain fragment of apo 13C,15N- CaM (CaMC) bound to an unlabeled peptide with the sequence of rat NaV1.2 IQ motif showed that apo CaMC (a) was necessary and sufficient for binding, and (b) bound more favorably than calcium-saturated CaMC. However, we could not monitor the NaV1.2 residues directly, and no structure of full-length CaM (including the N-domain of CaM (CaMN)) was determined. To distinguish contributions of CaMN and CaMC, we used solution NMR spectroscopy to assign the backbone resonances of a complex containing a 13C,15N-labeled peptide with the sequence of human NaV1.2 IQ motif (NaV1.2IQp) bound to apo 13C,15N-CaM or apo 13C,15N-CaMC. Comparing the assignments of apo CaM in complex with NaV1.2IQp to those of free apo CaM showed that residues within CaMC were significantly perturbed, while residues within CaMN were essentially unchanged. The chemical shifts of residues in NaV1.2IQp and in the C-domain of CaM were nearly identical regardless of whether CaMN was covalently linked to CaMC. This suggests that CaMN does not influence apo CaM binding to NaV1.2IQp.

  • Backbone and side-chain resonance assignments of (Ca 2+ ) 4 –calmodulin
           bound to beta calcineurin A CaMBD peptide
    • Authors: C. Andrew Fowler; Maria F. Núñez Hernandez; Susan E. O’Donnell; Liping Yu; Madeline A. Shea
      Abstract: Calcineurin (CaN) is a heterodimeric and highly conserved serine/threonine phosphatase (PP2B) that plays a critical role in coupling calcium signals to physiological processes including embryonic cardiac development, NF-AT-regulated gene expression in immune responses, and apoptosis. The catalytic subunit (CaNA) has three isoforms (α, β, and γ,) in humans and seven isoforms in Paramecium. In all eukaryotes, the EF-hand protein calmodulin (CaM) regulates CaN activity in a calcium-dependent manner. The N- and C-domains of CaM (CaMN and CaMC) recognize a CaM-binding domain (CaMBD) within an intrinsically disordered region of CaNA that precedes the auto-inhibitory domain (AID) of CaNA. Here we present nearly complete 1H, 13C, and 15N resonance assignments of (Ca2+)4–CaM bound to a peptide containing the CaMBD sequence in the beta isoform of CaNA (βCaNA–CaMBDp). Its secondary structure elements predicted from the assigned chemical shifts were in good agreement with those observed in the high-resolution structures of (Ca2+)4–CaM bound to CaMBDs of multiple enzymes. Based on the reported literature, the CaMBD of the α isoform of CaNA can bind to CaM in two opposing orientations which may influence the regulatory function of CaM. Because a high resolution structure of (Ca2+)4–CaM bound to βCaNA–CaMBDp has not been reported, our studies serve as a starting point for determining the solution structure of this complex. This will demonstrate the preferred orientation of (Ca2+)4–CaM on the CaMBD as well as the orientations of CaMN and CaMC relative to each other and to the AID of βCaNA.
