    Protein Summary

    Gene BT_3984 Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron VPI-5482 encodes the protein NP_812895 that belongs to the SusD/RagA family (PF07980). SusD is a secreted starch-binding protein with an N-terminal lipid tail that allows it to associate with the outer membrane. STRING genome context analysis suggests a 0.805 scored link with BT_3983, a putative outer membrane protein involved in nutrient binding.

    NP_812895 is the first structure from PFAM family of SusD-like proteins PF07980, which is a large family with over 2000 members involved in nutrient binding. After being produced by Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron, a human gut bacterium, BT_3984 is secreted and becomes a part of an outer membrane bound carbohydrate binding complex.

    The fold of 3gch consists of two subdomains with some resemblance to two other known folds. The first domain shows a significant structural similarity to SCOP  alpha-alpha-superhelix fold and especially to the TPR-like superfamily, SuSD-like family (Fig 2), with some traces of sequence similarity. The second subdomain shows much weaker similarity to proteins from the SCOP  alpha/alpha toroid fold (Fig 3). In each case, 3gch contains additional elements that are not seen in either of those folds. Dali top hits are with SusD homologs like PDB:3gzs (Z-scr=49), PDB:3fdh (Z-scr=30), PDB:3ihv (Z-scr=20).

    The model solved by JCSG, 3cgh, contains a truncation, with the first 22 amino acids not included in the expression construct. Additionally, residues 23-30 are disordered and not included in the model. There is a zinc atom coordinated by residues HIS 284, CYS 289, GLU 321, and HIS 344.

    Ligand Summary

    Zinc is modeled based on an x-ray flourescence scan, anomalous difference maps, and coordination geometry.
