Human thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) exhibits considerable person-to-person variation in activity to thiopurine drugs. We have produced an N-terminal truncation of human TPMT protein, crystallized the protein in complex with the methyl donor product S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine, and determined the atomic structure to the resolution of 1.58 and 1.89 A, respectively, for the seleno-methionine incorporated and wild type proteins. The structure of TPMT indicates that the naturally occurring… CONTINUE READING
