Crystallization (Commentary)
2.3 A resolution crystal structure of the deletion construct DELTA132 reveals an open conformation that relaxes steric constraints and facilitates repacking of the protein core. The open conformation stabilizes the deletion construct as a hexamer with point group symmetry 32, similar to that of the active complex. In contrast, the UDP-alpha-D-xylose-inhibited enzyme forms a lower-symmetry, horseshoe-shaped hexameric complex. The DELTA132 and the UDP-alpha-D-xylose-inhibited structures have similar hexamer-building interfaces
alternate crystal structure of human enzyme in complex with UDP-glucose at 2.8 A resolution. The substrate-bound protein complex consists of the open homohexamer. In all subunits of the open structure, residue Thr131 has translocated into the active site occupying the volume vacated by the absent active water and partially disordered NAD+ molecule. This conformation suggests a mechanism by which the enzyme may exchange NADH for NAD+ and repolarize the catalytic water molecule bound to Asp280 while protecting the reaction intermediates
crystallized from a solution of 0.2 M ammonium sulfate, 0.1 M Na cacodylate, pH 6.5, and 21% PEG 8000. Diffraction data are collected to a resolution of 2.8 A. The crystals belong to the orthorhombic space group P2(1)2(1)2(1) with unit-cell parameters a = 173.25, b = 191.16, c = 225.94 A and alpha = beta = gamma = 90.0°
in mutant E161Q, the hydrolysis step becomes completely rate-limiting so that a thioester enzyme intermediate accumulates at steady state. Crystallization of mutant E161Q in the presence of 5 mM UDP-glucose and 2 mM NAD results in trapping a thiohemiacetal enzyme intermediate. Residue Cys276 is covalently modified in the structure, establishing its role as catalytic nucleophile of the reaction
mutant K94E, to 2.08 A resolution. Cofactor binding triggers the formation of the 32 symmetry hexamer, but substrate UDP-alpha-D-glucose is needed for the stability of the complex. Loop88-110 is the cofactor-responsive allosteric switch that drives hexamer formation, loop88-110 directly links cofactor binding to the stability of the hexamer-building interface. In the interface, loop88-110 packs against the Thr131-loop/alpha6 helix, the allosteric switch that responds to the feedback inhibitor UDP-alpha-D-xylose

sitting-drop vapour-diffusion method, diffraction quality crystals (maximum dimensions of 0.1 * 0.1 * 0.1 mm) are obtained within one week at 273°C using reservoir solution composed of 4.0 M NaCl, 100 mM HEPES pH 7.5. The crystals belong to the monoclinic space group C2, with unit-cell parameters a = 117.7, b = 76.7, c = 75.6 A, beta = 125.8°. Crystal structure is at a resolution of 2.0 A. The overall fold is comprised of an N-terminal NAD+ dinucleotide binding domain and a C-terminal UDP-sugar binding domain connected by a long alpha-helix
