    Protein Summary

    This protein is annotated as a member of the Pfam Cupin_3 family/DUF861, PF05899.

    Pfam update: This protein is now in family Cuoin_3, at least in its C-terminal half. The family is in the Cupin clan. The actual function of the family is not known.


    There appears to be a gene duplication in the protein with the N-terminal half (approximately residues 3-130) superimposable on the C-terminal half (~residues 131-237) with a DALI Z-score of 9.5 and 2.0A rmsd over 88 Ca residues and a 15% sequence identity:


    Thus, there are 2 cupin folds in the protein molecule.


    Of the 661 unique proteins that have been classified in this Pfam, only 9 have a similar architecture that includes

    two Cupin_3 domains.

    Other related proteins can be found from the FFAS link above, the top hit being PDB id 1sfn.

    A search of other proteins of similar structure using the SSM server at EBI results in only 3 significant hits (Q-scores ~0.2-0.3 and rmsds ~3.0-3.5A, ~16-19% seq id), to PDB ids 1sfn (NYSGXRC structure), 2qdr (JCSG structure) and 2d40 (BSGI structure, Ref1), which are all solved from structural genomics centers.

    A superimposition of this structure (blue-green) with that of the 2d40 (yellow) reveals their structural similarities and also their differences, most notably, the prominent helices in the 2d40 are missing in this protein:



    The protein with PDB id 2d40 is an eGDO (E. coli gentisate 1,2-dioxygenase) which converts gentisic acid (2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid, DHB) to maleylpyruvate in aromatic compound metabolism (Ref1). It is similar in structure to the human homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase (PDB id 1ey2). Neither the 2d40 or the 1ey2 structures have substrate bound but there are some results from molecular docking experiments.

    eGDO, with 2 cupin_3 domains like this protein, was found to be a tetramer in the crystal structure as well as solution conditions. this protein is predicted to be a monomer from the crystal packing analysis. However, size-exclusion chromatography coupled with static light scattering suggest that this protein is likely to be a dimer in solution conditions.

    The active site in eGDO is believed to be be H104, H106, H145, Q93 and D159 (red sticks below) which interacts with the gentisate via an iron atom (brown sphere). However, these residues are not conserved in this proteins 403325, and are instead different residues in the corresponding positions (green sticks). So, this protein has some different function:




    One of the residues in the second cupin domain of this protein that corresponds to the residues in green above is Lys232 (black stick, below). It could be that there is another active site in this second domain. A 1,2-ethandiol (EDO) molecule from the cryoprotectant solution (magenta spheres) was modeled in the electron density near this residue:
