Protein–nucleotide contacts in motor proteins detected by DNP-enhanced solid-state NMR

Protein–nucleotide contacts in motor proteins detected by DNP-enhanced solid-state NMR DNP (dynamic nuclear polarization)-enhanced solid-state NMR is employed to directly detect protein–DNA and protein–ATP interactions and identify the residue type establishing the intermolecular contacts. While conventional solid-state NMR can detect protein–DNA interactions in large oligomeric protein assemblies in favorable cases, it typically suffers from low signal-to-noise ratios. We show here, for the oligomeric DnaB helicase from Helicobacter pylori complexed with ADP and single-stranded DNA, that this limitation can be overcome by using DNP-enhanced spectroscopy. Interactions are established by DNP-enhanced 31P–13C polarization-transfer experiments followed by the recording of a 2D 13C–13C correlation experiment. The NMR spectra were obtained in less than 2 days and allowed the identification of residues of the motor protein involved in nucleotide binding. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Biomolecular NMR Springer Journals

Abstract

DNP (dynamic nuclear polarization)-enhanced solid-state NMR is employed to directly detect protein–DNA and protein–ATP interactions and identify the residue type establishing the intermolecular contacts. While conventional solid-state NMR can detect protein–DNA interactions in large oligomeric protein assemblies in favorable cases, it typically suffers from low signal-to-noise ratios. We show here, for the oligomeric DnaB helicase from Helicobacter pylori complexed with ADP and single-stranded DNA, that this limitation can be overcome by using DNP-enhanced spectroscopy. Interactions are established by DNP-enhanced 31P–13C polarization-transfer experiments followed by the recording of a 2D 13C–13C correlation experiment. The NMR spectra were obtained in less than 2 days and allowed the identification of residues of the motor protein involved in nucleotide binding.
