Conformational changes and stabilization induced by phosphate binding to 5′-methylthioadenosine phosphorylase from the thermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus


The effect of phosphate, its analogues, and other substrates on structural features of recombinant 5′-methylthioadenosine phosphorylase from Sulfolobus solfataricus (SsMTAP) was investigated. Phosphate was found to exert a significant stabilizing effect on the protein against the inactivation caused by temperature, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), urea, and… (More)
