Title: Structure–Function Analysis of the Extended Conformation of a Polyketide Synthase Module

Abstract

Catalytic modules of assembly-line polyketide synthases (PKSs) have previously been observed in two very different conformations—an “extended” architecture and an “arch-shaped” architecture—although the catalytic relevance of neither has been directly established. By the use of a fully human naïve antigen-binding fragment (F ab) library, a high-affinity antibody was identified that bound to the extended conformation of a PKS module, as verified by X-ray crystallography and tandem size-exclusion chromatography–small-angle X-ray scattering (SEC–SAXS). Kinetic analysis proved that this antibody-stabilized module conformation was fully competent for catalysis of intermodular polyketide chain translocation as well as intramodular polyketide chain elongation and functional group modification of a growing polyketide chain. Furthermore, the extended conformation of a PKS module is fully competent for all of its essential catalytic functions.
