The three-dimensional structures of the truncated myosin head from Dictyostelium discoideum myosin II complexed with beryllium and aluminum fluoride and magnesium ADP are reported at 2.0 and 2.6 A resolution, respectively. Crystals of the beryllium fluoride-MgADP complex belong to space group P2(1)2(1)2 with unit cell parameters of a = 105.3 A, b = 182.6 A, and c = 54.7 A, whereas the crystals of the aluminum fluoride complex belong to the orthorhombic space group C222(1) with unit cell…

X-ray structure of the magnesium(II)-pyrophosphate complex of the truncated head of Dictyostelium discoideum myosin to 2.7 A resolution.

BeFx complex with S1Dc suggests that the conformational change, which occurs when ATP binds to actomyosin and which reduces the affinity of myosin for actin, is caused by the binding of the gamma- and beta-phosphate groups of the nucleotide.

X-ray Structures of the Dictyostelium discoideumMyosin Motor Domain with Six Non-nucleotide Analogs*

A comparison of the kinetic and structural properties of the nanologs relative to ATP suggests that the ability of a substrate to sustain tension and to generate movement correlates with a well defined interaction with the active site water structure observed in S1dC·MgADP·BeF x .

X-ray Structures of the Apo and MgATP-bound States ofDictyostelium discoideum Myosin Motor Domain*

The crystallized protein is enzymatically active in solution, indicating that the conformation of myosin observed in chicken skeletal myosIn subfragment-1 is unable to hydrolyze ATP and most likely represents the pre-hydrolysis structure for the myOSin head that occurs after release from actin.

Solution properties of full length and truncated forms of myosin subfragment 1 from Dictyostelium discoideum

Taken together, the results identify both truncation-caused differences between S1dC and flS1, as well as isoform-related differences between skeletal and Dictyostelium S1.

ATPase kinetics of the Dictyostelium discoideum myosin II motor domain

It is shown that the elementary steps of the S1dC ATPase pathway and the effects of actin are similar to those of the complete myosin head fragment, which indicates that truncation at residue E759, with the removal of the light chain binding sites, is not crucial to catalytic activity.

Formation and characterization of kinesin.ADP.fluorometal complexes.

The results suggest that these ternary complexes may mimic transient state intermediates in the kinesin ATPase cycle.

Solution structure of myosin-ADP-MgFn ternary complex by fluorescent probes and small-angle synchrotron X-ray scattering.

The results suggest that the overall conformation and localized functional regions of the complex are quite similar to those in the presence of ATP, indicating that the complex mimics the M(**).ADP.P(i) steady state.



Atomic structure of the actin: DNase I complex

The atomic models of the complex between rabbit skeletal muscle actin and bovine pancreatic deoxyribonuclease I both in the ATP and ADP forms have been determined byo X-ray analysis at an effective

Kinetic and equilibrium analysis of the interactions of actomyosin subfragment-1.ADP with beryllium fluoride.

The hypothesis that the stable ternary complex formed between myosin subfragment-1, MgADP and beryllium fluoride (BeF3-), denoted S-1 not equal to .ADP.BeF3-, is an analog of the intermediate state

Conserved protein domains in a myosin heavy chain gene from Dictyostelium discoideum.

The 2116-amino acid myosin heavy chain sequence from Dictyostelium discoideum was determined from DNA sequence analysis of the cloned gene, finding that certain features that are present in the head region of nematode and mammalian muscle myosins, and that have been assumed to be important for myOSin function, are missing in the DictYostelio myosIn sequence.

Extensively methylated myosin subfragment-1: examination of local structure, interactions with nucleotides and actin, and ligand-induced conformational changes.

The atomic structure of myosin subfragment-1 (S1) has been recently solved for crystals of extensively methylated S1 and the effect of such a modification on S1 structure and function was examined.

Flexibility of the myosin heavy chain: direct evidence that the region containing SH1 and SH2 can move 10 A under the influence of nucleotide binding.

Two thiols of skeletal myosin subfragment 1 (SF1) could be oxidized to a disulfide bond by treatment with a 2-fold excess of 5,5'-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) in the presence of MgADP and the resulting characteristic changes in the ATPase activities of SF1 were suggested.

Refined crystal structure of the triphosphate conformation of H‐ras p21 at 1.35 A resolution: implications for the mechanism of GTP hydrolysis.

A mechanism for GTP hydrolysis involving mainly Gln61 and Glu63 as activating species for in‐line attack of water as well as a mechanism for rate enhancement by GAP is proposed.

Structure of the regulatory domain of scallop myosin at 2.8 Ä resolution

The regulatory domain of scallop myosin is a three-chain protein complex that switches on this motor in response to Ca2+ binding and is stabilized by linkages involving the heavy chain and both light chains, accounting for the requirement of all three chains for Ca2-binding and regulation in the intactMyosin molecule.

Characterization of stable beryllium fluoride, aluminum fluoride, and vanadate containing myosin subfragment 1-nucleotide complexes.

Beryllium and aluminum fluorides are good phosphate analogues and these compounds, like orthovanadate, form stable complexes with myosin subfragment 1 (S1) in the presence of MgADP, which indicates that stable complexes cannot form when a specific site is occupied by the gamma-phosphate of ATP or by P(i) derived from the Gamma-Phosphate.

Inhibition of myosin ATPase by beryllium fluoride.

Inhibition of the myosin subfragment 1 (S-1) ATPase activity by beryllium fluoride was studied directly in the presence of MgATP and following preincubation of samples with MgADP, and it was concluded that M.ADP.BeF3- is analogous to the M++.
