Default High-resolution NMR study of a synthetic oligoribonucleotide with a tetranucleotide G

High-resolution NMR study of a synthetic oligoribonucleotide with a tetranucleotide GAGA loop that is a substrate for the cytotoxic protein, ricin.

Related Articles High-resolution NMR study of a synthetic oligoribonucleotide with a tetranucleotide GAGA loop that is a substrate for the cytotoxic protein, ricin.

Nucleic Acids Res. 1993 Dec 11;21(24):5670-8

Authors: Orita M, Nishikawa F, Shimayama T, Taira K, Endo Y, Nishikawa S

Ricin is a cytotoxic protein that inactivates ribosomes by hydrolyzing the N-glycosidic bond at position A4324 in eukaryotic 28S rRNA. Its substrate domain forms a double helical stem and a 17-base loop that includes the sequence GAGA, the second adenosine of which corresponds to A4324. Recently, studies of mutant RNAs have shown that the four-nucleotide loop, GAGA, can function as a substrate for ricin. To investigate the structure that is recognized by ricin, we studied the properties of a short synthetic substrate, the dodecaribonucleotide r-CUCAGAGAUGAG, which forms a RNA hairpin structure with a GABA loop and a stem of four base pairs. The results of NMR spectroscopy allowed us to construct the solution structure of this oligonucleotide by restrained molecular-dynamic calculations. We found that the stem region exists as an A-form duplex. 5G and 8A in the loop region form an unusual G:A base pair, and the phosphodiester backbone has a turn between 5G and 6A. This turn seems to help ricin to gain access to 6A which is the only site of depurination in the entire structure. The overall structure of the GAGA loop is similar to those of the GAAA and GCAA loops that have been described but that are not recognized by ricin. Therefore, in addition to the adenosine at the depurination site, the neighboring guanosine on the 3' side (7G) may also play a role in the recognition mechanism together with 5G and 8A.

High dimensional and high resolution pulse sequences for backbone resonance assignment of intrinsically disordered proteins
High dimensional and high resolution pulse sequences for backbone resonance assignment of intrinsically disordered proteins Abstract Four novel 5D (HACA(N)CONH, HNCOCACB, (HACA)CON(CA)CONH, (H)NCO(NCA)CONH), and one 6D ((H)NCO(N)CACONH) NMR pulse sequences are proposed. The new experiments employ non-uniform sampling that enables achieving high resolution in indirectly detected dimensions. The experiments facilitate resonance assignment of intrinsically disordered proteins. The novel pulse sequences were successfully tested using δ subunit (20 kDa) of Bacillus subtilis RNA polymerase...

High resolution NMR spectroscopy of nanocrystalline proteins at ultra-high magnetic field
High resolution NMR spectroscopy of nanocrystalline proteins at ultra-high magnetic field Abstract Magic-angle spinning (MAS) solid-state NMR (SSNMR) spectroscopy of uniformly-13C,15N labeled protein samples provides insight into atomic-resolution chemistry and structure. Data collection efficiency has advanced remarkably in the last decade; however, the study of larger proteins is still challenged by relatively low resolution in comparison to solution NMR. In this study, we present a systematic analysis of SSNMR protein spectra acquired at 11.7, 17.6 and 21.1 Tesla (1H frequencies of...
