Effects of the combined substitutions of amino acid residues on thermal properties of cold-adapted monomeric isocitrate dehydrogenases from psychrophilic bacteria

Extremophiles : Life Under Extreme Conditions
Miyuki Kobayashi, Yasuhiro Takada


In the two cold-adapted monomeric isocitrate dehydrogenases from psychrophilic bacteria, Colwellia maris and Colwellia psychrerythraea (CmIDH and CpIDH, respectively), the combined substitutions of amino acid residues between the Leu693, Leu724 and Phe735 residues of CmIDH and the corresponding Phe693, Gln724 and Leu735 residues of CpIDH were introduced by site-directed mutagenesis. A double mutant of CmIDH substituted its Leu724 and Phe735 residues by the corresponding ones of CpIDH, CmL724Q/F735L, and the triple mutant of CpIDH, CpF693L/Q724L/L735F, showed the most decrease and increase of activity, respectively, of each wild-type and its all mutated enzymes. In the case of CmIDH, the substitutions of these three amino acid residues resulted in the decrease of catalytic activity and thermostability for activity, but the combined substitutions of amino acid residues did not necessarily exert additive effects on these properties. On the other hand, similar substitutions in CpIDH had quite opposite effects to CmIDH, and the effects of the combined substitutions were additive. All multiple mutants of CmIDH and CpIDH showed lower and higher catalytic efficiency (k(cat)/K(m)) values than the respective wild-type enzymes. Single and...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
