Title: Purification, crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of Hsp33 from Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Abstract

Heat-shock protein Hsp33 from S. cerevisiae was crystallized and diffraction data were collected to 2.7 Å resolution. The heat-shock protein Hsp33 from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been overexpressed, purified and crystallized. A crystal was obtained using the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method and a data set was collected to 2.7 Å resolution. The crystal belongs to space group P4{sub 3}2{sub 1}2, with unit-cell parameters a = b = 96.43, c = 132.22 Å, α = β = γ = 90°. The asymmetric unit is assumed to contain two subunits of Hsp33, with a V{sub M} value of 2.96 Å{sup 3} Da{sup −1} and a solvent content of 58.41%.

  • Crystals of mitochondrial thioredoxin Trx3 from S. cerevisiae were obtained and diffraction data were collected to 2.0 Å resolution. There are three thioredoxin isoforms in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae: two cytosolic/nuclear thioredoxins, Trx1 and Trx2, and one mitochondrial thioredoxin, Trx3. In the present work, S. cerevisiae Trx3 overexpressed in Escherichia coli was purified and crystallized. The Trx3 crystals were obtained by the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. A data set diffracting to 2.0 Å resolution was collected from a single crystal. The crystal belongs to space group P3{sub 1}, with unit-cell parameters a = b = 49.57, c = 94.55 Å, αmore » = β = 90, γ = 120°. The asymmetric unit is assumed to contain two subunits of Trx3, with a V{sub M} value of 2.62 Å{sup 3} Da{sup −1} and a solvent content of 53%.« less
  • The glutathione peroxidase Gpx3 from the yeast S. cerevisiae has been overexpressed, purified, crystallized and diffracted to 2.6 Å resolution. Gpx3 is a monomer in solution which is different from its counterparts in mammals. The glutathione peroxidase Gpx3 from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been overexpressed, purified and crystallized. Both gel-filtration and dynamic light-scattering (DLS) results indicate that Gpx3 is a monomer in solution at a concentration of about 2 mg ml{sup −1}, whereas glutathione peroxidases are normally tetrameric or dimeric. X-ray diffraction data from a single crystal of Gpx3 have been collected to 2.6 Å resolution. The crystals aremore » triclinic and belong to space group P1, with unit-cell parameters a = 38.187, b = 43.372, c = 56.870 Å, α = 71.405, β = 73.376, γ = 89.633°. There are two Gpx3 monomers in a crystallographic asymmetric unit. Preliminary analyses show that the yeast Gpx3 is quite different from those of mammals.« less
  • The complex of the non-ATPase subunit Nas6 with the C-terminal domain of the ATPase subunit Rpt3 of the 26S proteasome from S. cerevisiae was co-expressed in E. coli and purified to homogeneity. The crystals obtained from the protein complex diffracted to a resolution of 2.2 Å. The non-ATPase subunit Nas6, which is the human orthologue of gankyrin, was co-expressed with the C-terminal domain of the ATPase subunit Rpt3 of the yeast 26S proteasome in Escherichia coli, purified to near-homogeneity and crystallized using the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. The protein crystallized in space group P2{sub 1}, with unit-cell parameters a = 60.38,more » b = 100.22, c = 72.20 Å, β = 94.70° and with three Nas6–Rpt3C molecules per asymmetric unit.

  • In the present work, the cytosolic form of thioredoxin from S. cerevisiae was cloned, expressed, purified and crystallized. Thioredoxins play key roles in the cellular response to oxidative stress. Three isoforms of thioredoxin have been identified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae: two that are cytosolic (Trx1 and Trx2) and one that is mitochondrial (Trx3). In the present work, the cytosolic form Trx1 was cloned, expressed, purified and crystallized. Crystals were obtained by the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. A data set was collected from a single crystal to 1.7 Å resolution. The crystal belongs to space group P2{sub 1}2{sub 1}2{sub 1}, with unit-cell parametersmore » a = 32.29, b = 46.59, c = 64.20 Å, α = β = γ = 90°.« less
  • A soluble variant of the monoglyceride lipase Yju3p was successfully expressed, purified and crystallized. Diffraction data were collected to 2.4 Å resolution. The protein Yju3p is the orthologue of monoglyceride lipases in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A soluble variant of this lipase termed s-Yju3p (38.3 kDa) was generated and purified to homogeneity by affinity and size-exclusion chromatography. s-Yju3p was crystallized in a vapour-diffusion setup at 293 K and a complete data set was collected to 2.4 Å resolution. The crystal form was orthorhombic (space group P2{sub 1}2{sub 1}2{sub 1}), with unit-cell parameters a = 77.2, b = 108.6, c =more » 167.7 Å. The asymmetric unit contained four molecules with a solvent content of 46.4%.« less
