The Atg12-Atg5 conjugate, which is formed by an ubiquitin-like conjugation system, is essential to autophagosome formation, a central event in autophagy. Despite its importance, the molecular mechanism of the Atg12-Atg5 conjugate formation has not been elucidated. Here, we report the solution and crystal structures of Atg10 and Atg5 homologs from Kluyveromyces marxianus (Km), a thermotolerant yeast. KmAtg10 comprises an E2-core fold with characteristic accessories, including two β strands… CONTINUE READING
