The crystal structure of the tungsten-containing aldehyde ferredoxin oxidoreductase (AOR) from Pyrococcus furiosus, a hyperthermophilic archaeon (formerly archaebacterium) that grows optimally at 100 degrees C, has been determined at 2.3 angstrom resolution by means of multiple isomorphous replacement and multiple crystal form averaging. AOR consists of two identical subunits, each containing an Fe4S4 cluster and a molybdopterin-based tungsten cofactor that is analogous to the molybdenum… Expand

TLDR
A third type of tungsten-containing enzyme, formaldehyde ferredoxin oxidoreductase (FOR), has now been characterized and is a homotetramer with a mass of 280 kDa and contains approximately 1 W atom, 4 Fe atoms, and 1 Ca atom per subunit, together with a pterin cofactor. Expand
Purification and characterization of the tungsten enzyme aldehyde:ferredoxin oxidoreductase from the hyperthermophilic denitrifier Pyrobaculum aerophilum
TLDR
Metal analysis and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy indicate that the P. aerophilum AOR contains one tungsten center and one [4Fe-4S]2+/1+ cluster per 68-kDa monomer, and the amino acid sequence has been identified using mass spectrometry. Expand

TLDR
A structural comparison of AFEST with its mesophilic and thermophilic homologues, Brefeldin A esterase from Bacillus subtilis (BFAE) and EST2 from Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius, reveals an increase in the number of intramolecular ion pairs and secondary structure content, as well as a significant reduction in loop extensions and ratio of hydrophobic to charged surface area.

TLDR
Structural comparison revealed that the presence of extensive hydrophobic interactions and a smaller cavity volume are likely to be the main factors contributing to the hyperthermostability of McoP. Expand

Characterization of an Aldehyde Oxidoreductase From the Mesophilic Bacterium Aromatoleum aromaticum EbN1, a Member of a New Subfamily of Tungsten-Containing Enzymes
TLDR
AORAa appears to be a prototype of a new subfamily of bacterial AOR-like tungsten-enzymes, which differ from the previously known archaeal AORs mostly by their multi-subunit composition, their low sensitivity against oxygen, and the ability to use NAD+ as electron acceptor. Expand
Formylmethanofuran: tetrahydromethanopterin formyltransferase from Methanopyrus kandleri - new insights into salt-dependence and thermostability.
TLDR
The salt-dependent thermostability of Ftr might be explained on a molecular basis by ionic interactions at the protein surface, involving both protein and inorganic salt ions, and the mainly hydrophobic interactions between the subunits and within the core. Expand
Crystal structure of methionine aminopeptidase from hyperthermophile, Pyrococcus furiosus.
TLDR
Analysis of the PfMAP structure in comparison with EcMAP and other mesophile proteins reveals several factors which may contribute to the hyperthermostability of PfMAP: a significantly high number of hydrogen bonds and ion-pairs between side-chains of oppositely charged residues involved in the stabilization of helices.
