Molecular interactions between matrilysin and the matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor doxycycline investigated by deuterium exchange mass spectrometry

Molecular Pharmacology
Ricardo A GarcíaFrancisco J Villarreal


Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play an essential role in normal and pathological extracellular matrix degradation. Deuterium exchange mass spectrometry (DXMS) was used to localize the binding regions of the broad-spectrum MMP inhibitor doxycycline on the active form of matrilysin (residues 95-267) and to assess alterations in structure induced by doxycycline binding. DXMS analyses of inhibitor-bound versus inhibitor-free forms of matrilysin reveal two primary sites of reduced hydrogen/deuterium exchange (residues 145-153; residues 193-204) that flank the structural zinc binding site. Equilibrium dialysis studies of doxycycline-matrilysin binding yielded a K(d) of 73 microM with a binding stoichiometry of 2.3 inhibitor molecules per protein, which compares well with DXMS results that show principal reduction in deuterium exchange at two sites. Lesser changes in deuterium exchange evident at the amino and carboxyl termini are attributed to inhibitor-induced structural fluctuations. Tryptophan fluorescence quenching experiments of matrilysin with potassium iodide suggest changes in conformation induced by doxycycline binding. In the presence of doxycycline, tryptophan quenching is reduced by approximately 17% relative to inhibit...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.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
