Copper-exporting P-type ATPase - Q59385 (COPA_ECOLI)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Copper-exporting P-type ATPase: Exports Cu(+) from the cytoplasm to the periplasm (PubMed:10639134, PubMed:11167016, PubMed:11500054, PubMed:12351646). Binds 2 Cu(+) ions per monomer, which are transferred to periplasmic copper chaperone CusF upon ATP hydrolysis (PubMed:24917681). In vitro an excess of CusF over CopA is required for efficient transfer (PubMed:24917681). May also be involved in silver export (PubMed:12351646, PubMed:12832075). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Copper-exporting P-type ATPase interacts with apo-periplasmic copper chaperone CusF; when CusF is precharged with copper it binds very little CopA. The periplasmic loops of CopA, especially the first half of loop 1, play a large role in binding to CusF (PubMed:24917681). UniProt
The N-terminal domain (exact residues are not given in the paper) is not required for Cu(+)-binding (when deleted KM for Cu(+) binding is 1.32 uM) nor for ATPase activity, binds 2 Cu(+)/monomer (PubMed:24917681). Contradictory results give a considerable decrease in Cu affinity when residues 1-150 are deleted (KM=31.9 uM for Cu(+)) (PubMed:25899340). The first of 2 N-terminal heavy metal-binding domains (HMA 1, approximately residues 1-70, equivalent to CopA(Z)) has a 5-fold higher affinity for Cu(+) than HMA 2 (residues 71-150) and as a protein fragment can transfer Cu(+) to the ATPase fragment (residues 151-834), suggesting it has a Cu-chaperone function (PubMed:25899340). HMA 2 tranfers Cu(+) to HMA 1 but the opposite reaction does not occur in vitro (PubMed:25899340). The HMA 1 fragment complements growth defects in trans, but if its CXXC motif is mutated, or if the remaining CXXC motif in HMA2 is mutated, complementation no longer occurs, showing the 2 HMA domains have different functions (PubMed:25899340). The periplasmic loops of CopA, especially the first half of loop 1, play a large role in binding to CusF (PubMed:24917681). Contradictory results between the various in vitro studies may be due to different levels of protein expression or reconstitution. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
