The crystal structure of the ferredoxin:NADP+ reductase (FNR) from the cyanobacterium Anabaena PCC 7119 has been determined at 2.6 A resolution by multiple isomorphous replacement and refined using 15.0 A to 1.8 A data, collected at 4 degrees C, to an R-factor of 0.172. The model includes 303 residues, the flavin adenine dinucleotide cofactor (FAD), one(More)
The protozoan haemoflagellate Trypanosoma brucei has two NAD-dependent glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase isoenzymes, each with a different localization within the cell. One isoenzyme is found in the cytosol, as in other eukaryotes, while the other is found in the glycosome, a microbody-like organelle that fulfils an essential role in glycolysis. The(More)
The crystal structure of malate dehydrogenase from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Archeoglobus fulgidus, in complex with its cofactor NAD, was solved at 2.9A resolution. The crystal structure shows a compact homodimer with one coenzyme bound per subunit. The substrate binding site is occupied by a sulphate ion. In order to gain insight into adaptation(More)
Ferredoxin-NADP(+) reductase (FNR) and its physiological electron donor ferredoxin (Fd) from the cyanobacterium Anabaena PCC7119 have been co-crystallized. The unit-cell parameters are a = b = 63.72, c = 158.02 A and the space group is P2(1)2(1)2(1). The crystal structure has been solved with 2.4 A resolution synchrotron data by molecular replacement,(More)
A procedure, called PBR (phase-bias reduction), has been developed to properly refine heavy-atom derivatives and to generate less biased heavy-atom phases when these derivatives contain common heavy-atom sites. Two independent events are obtained by splitting the refinement and phasing calculations into two stages, the first in which one of the derivatives(More)
The three-dimensional crystal structure of the (R207S, R292S) mutant of malate dehydrogenase from Haloarcula marismortui was solved at 1.95A resolution in order to determine the role of salt bridges and solvent ions in halophilic adaptation and quaternary structure stability. The mutations, located at the dimer-dimer interface, disrupt two inter-dimeric(More)
The three-dimensional structure of glycosomal glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase [D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (phosphorylating), EC 1.12.1.12] from the sleeping-sickness parasite Trypanosoma brucei was solved by molecular replacement at 3.2-A resolution with an x-ray data set collected by the Laue method. For data collection,(More)
Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) catalyzes the conversion of pyruvate to lactate with concomitant oxidation of NADH during the last step in anaerobic glycolysis. In the present study, we present a comparative biochemical and structural analysis of various LDHs adapted to function over a large temperature range. The enzymes were from Champsocephalus gunnari (an(More)
The crystal structure of the glycosomal enzyme pyruvate phosphate dikinase from the African protozoan parasite Trypanosoma brucei has been solved to 3.0 A resolution by molecular replacement. The search model was the 2.3 A resolution structure of the Clostridium symbiosum enzyme. Due to different relative orientations of the domains and sub-domains in the(More)
