Title: Crystallization and diffraction data of 1H-3-hydroxy-4-oxoquinoline 2,4-dioxygenase: a cofactor-free oxygenase of the α/β-hydrolase family

Abstract

Preliminary crystallographic data for 1H-3-hydroxy-4-oxoquinoline 2,4-dioxygenase from P. putida 33/1 are reported. 1H-3-Hydroxy-4-oxoquinoline 2,4-dioxygenase (QDO) from Pseudomonas putida 33/1 catalyses the oxygenolysis of 1H-3-hydroxy-4-oxoquinoline to form N-formylanthranilic acid and carbon monoxide without the aid of cofactors. Both N-terminally His{sub 6}-tagged and native QDO were overexpressed in Escherichia coli and purified by conventional chromatographic procedures. Untagged QDO, but not His{sub 6}-tagged QDO, was crystallized by the vapour-diffusion method, giving hexagonal bipyramid crystals belonging to space group P6{sub 1}22. Selenomethionine-containing native QDO was prepared and crystallized under identical conditions. The unit-cell parameters were a = b = 90.1, c = 168.6 Å, α = β = 90, γ = 120°. Using synchrotron radiation, these crystals diffract to 2.5 Å. The expression, purification and crystallization of QDO are reported here.

  • Preliminary crystallographic data are reported for 1H-3-hydroxy-4-oxoquinaldine 2,4-dioxygenase (HOD) from A. nitroguajacolicus Rü61a. 1H-3-Hydroxy-4-oxoquinaldine 2,4-dioxygenase (HOD) is a cofactor-devoid dioxygenase that is involved in the anthranilate pathway of quinaldine degradation. HOD has been proposed to belong to the α/β-hydrolase-fold superfamily of enzymes. N-terminally His{sub 6}-tagged HOD has been crystallized by the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method using sodium/potassium tartrate as a precipitant and CuCl{sub 2} as an additive. The structure was solved by the single anomalous dispersion (SAD) technique using data collected to 3.5 Å resolution at the Cu absorption peak wavelength. The crystals belong to the primitive tetragonal space group P4{submore » 3}2{sub 1}2, with unit-cell parameters a = b = 153.788, c = 120.872 Å.« less
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are recognized as a groups of the most persistent pollutants. Many bacterial strains are recognized as PCB and biphenyl degraders, and after further degradation their catabolites are ultimate utilized as carbon and energy sources. Pseudomonas sp. is a natural isolate which can grow in biphenyl or 4-chlorobiphenyl as the sole carbon and energy source. In this study, nucleotide sequences of the pcbC and pcbD genes of Pseudomonas sp. strain D-J-12 were analyzed. 29 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.
  • The bphC and bphD genes of Pseudomonas putida involved in the catabolism of polychlorinated biphenyls or biphenyl were identified, localized, and studied for expression in Escherichia coli. This was achieved by cloning a 2.4-kilobase (kb) DNA fragment of recombinant cosmid pOH101 into HindIII site of pUC plasmids downstream of a lacZ promoter and measuring the enzyme activities of 3-phenylcatechol dioxygenase (3-PDase; a product of bphC) and the meta-cleavage product 2-hydroxy-6-phenylhexa-2,4-dienoate hydrolase (a product of bphD). The amount of 3-PDase produced in E. coli was about 20 times higher than that of the enzyme produced by the parent, P. putida. Determinationmore » of expression of the bphC and bphD genes through their own promoter sequences or by using the lacZ promoter of pUC plasmids was done by cloning the DNA that encodes bphC and bphD genes in a HindIII site of a promoter selection vector (pKK232-8) upstream of the gene for chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT). The recombinant plasmid (pAW787) constructed by the inserting the 2.4-kb DNA in pKK232-8 expressed both 3-PDase and CAT activities. Another hybrid construct (pAW786) in which the DNA insert was cloned in the opposite orientation lacked CAT activity but produced normal amounts of 3-PDase activity. On the basis of these results, we suggest that the bphC and bphD genes were expressed by using promoter sequences that are independent of the promoter that expresses CAT activity in E. coli. The locations of the bphC and bphD genes were determined by insertional inactivation of the open reading frames of structural genes bphC and bphD by Tn5 mutagenesis.« less

  • The electron-transfer complex between the terminal oxygenase and ferredoxin of carbazole 1,9a-dioxygenase was crystallized and diffraction data were collected to 1.90 Å resolution. Carbazole 1,9a-dioxygenase, which consists of an oxygenase component (CARDO-O) and the electron-transport components ferredoxin (CARDO-F) and ferredoxin reductase (CARDO-R), catalyzes dihydroxylation at the C1 and C9a positions of carbazole. The electron-transport complex between CARDO-O and CARDO-F crystallizes at 293 K using hanging-drop vapour diffusion with the precipitant PEG MME 2000 (type I crystals) or PEG 3350 (type II). Blossom-shaped crystals form from a pile of triangular plate-shaped crystals. The type I crystal diffracts to a maximum resolutionmore » of 1.90 Å and belongs to space group P2{sub 1}, with unit-cell parameters a = 97.1, b = 89.8, c = 104.9 Å, α = γ = 90, β = 103.8°. Diffraction data for the type I crystal gave an overall R{sub merge} of 8.0% and a completeness of 100%. Its V{sub M} value is 2.63 Å{sup 3} Da{sup −1}, indicating a solvent content of 53.2%.« less
