Title: Crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of a bacterial l-amino-acid oxidase from Rhodococcus opacus

Abstract

The crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of a bacterial l-amino acid oxidase from R. opacus is described. The homodimeric protein contains one molecule of non-covalently bound FAD per monomer. Crystals with good diffraction properties were grown in two different orthorhombic space groups (P2{sub 1}2{sub 1}2{sub 1} and C222{sub 1}). l-Amino-acid oxidases (EC 1.4.3.2) catalyse the stereospecific oxidative deamination of an l-amino-acid substrate to an α-keto acid with the production of ammonia and hydrogen peroxide. In this study, the crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of a bacterial l-amino-acid oxidase from Rhodococcus opacus (RoLAAO) is described. RoLAAO is a dimeric protein consisting of two identical subunits of 489 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 54.2 kDa and a non-covalently bound FAD molecule. RoLAAO was crystallized by the vapour-diffusion method in two different space groups: P2{sub 1}2{sub 1}2{sub 1} (unit-cell parameters a = 65.7, b = 109.7, c = 134.4 Å) and C222{sub 1} (unit-cell parameters a = 68.3, b = 88.4, c = 186.6 Å). Both crystal forms diffracted X-rays to a resolution of at least 1.6 Å.
