Rishikesan S, et al. (2010) The NMR solution structure of subunit G (G(61)(-)(101)) of the eukaryotic V1VO ATPase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Biochim Biophys Acta 1798(10):1961-1968
Abstract: Subunit G is an essential stalk subunit of the eukaryotic proton pump V(1)V(O) ATPase. Previously the structure of the N-terminal region, G(1)(-)(59), of the 13kDa subunit G was solved at higher resolution. Here solution NMR was performed to determine the solution structure of the recombinant C-terminal region (G(61)(-)(101)) of subunit G of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae V(1)V(O) ATPase. The protein forms an extended alpha-helix between residues 64 and 100, whereby the first five- and the last residues of G(61)(-)(101) are flexible. The surface charge distribution of G(61)(-)(101) reveals an amphiphilic character at the C-terminus due to positive and negative charge distribution at one side and a hydrophobic surface on the opposite side of the structure. The hydrophobic surface pattern is mainly formed by alanine residues. The alanine residues 72, 74 and 81 were exchanged by a single cysteine in the entire subunit G. Cysteines at positions 72 and 81 showed disulfide formation. In contrast, no crosslink could be formed for the mutant Ala74Cys. Together with the recently determined NMR solution structure of G(1)(-)(59), the presented solution structure of G(61)(-)(101) enabled us to present a first structural model of the entire subunit G of the S. cerevisiae V(1)V(O) ATPase.CI - Copyright (c) 2010.
