Miyamoto M, et al. (2005) Alanine-scanning mutagenesis of HM-1 killer toxin and the essential residues for killing activity. J Biochem 137(4):517-22
Abstract: Each of the aromatic, acidic and basic amino acid residues in HM-1 were separately substituted with alanine by site-directed mutagenesis. The mutant genes were successfully expressed in HM-1 resistant Saccharomyces cerevisiae. HM-1 gene analogues corresponding to the aromatic substitutions resulted in lower production of HM-1 analogues. In the case of the acidic amino acid residue and basic amino acid residue substitutions, some analogues were produced in the same amount as and exhibited similar killing activity to that of the wild type HM-1. But the H35A HM-1 analogue had completely lost the killing activity, and D44A, K21A, K46A, R82A, R85A and R86A HM-1 showed highly decreased killing activities. These results strongly indicate the importance of histidine-35, aspartic acid-44, lysine-21, lysine-46, and C-terminal arginine residues in HM-1 for the killing activity.
