    Protein Summary

    The  hypothetical protein protein BACOVA_03105 (ZP_02066110.1) is a divergent member of PFAM PF07719(the match is below PFAM significance threshold), so it could possibly be a new family in the TRP clan. This particular subfamily of TRP repeat proteins is typical for human gut, but also for environmental Bacteroidetes. None of the proteins in this sub-family was studied experimentally for its function.

    The monomer structure is shown below.



    There are two monomers in the crystallographic asymmetric unit. Each monomer binds two Zinc atoms (magenta spheres in figures above and below). The coordination of each Zn atoms is provided by two monomers, shown below.

    There are over 1000 solved structures with TRP repeats, not surprisingly PDB BACOVA_03105 structure picks up a lot of hits in structure similarity searches. The top 10 DALI hits are shown below.

     A superposition of this protein (green) over 2vgy (blue) indicates the similarities between them.


    However, 2vgy does not have any metal bound to it.


    Interestingly, all the top hits in structural similarity are involved in protein-protein interactions, Yrrb in peptide binding with a unsusual peptide binding cavity - is it conserved here?


    What do you think about these unusual (for a TRP repeat protein) elongated helices at the C-terminal. They are used to form contacts with the second molecule in the crystallographic dimer.


    Most TRP structures are curved with a "supertwist". Ours appears unusually straight. I'm not clear what it means.
