    The binding of penicillin to penicillin acylase was studied by X-ray crystallography. The structure of the enzyme-substrate complex was determined after soaking crystals of an inactive betaN241A penicillin acylase mutant with penicillin G. Binding of the substrate induces a conformational change, in which the side chains of alphaF146 and alphaR145 move away from the active site, which allows the enzyme to accommodate penicillin G. In the resulting structure, the beta-lactam binding site is formed by the side chains of alphaF146 and betaF71, which have van der Waals interactions with the thiazolidine ring of penicillin G and the side chain of alphaR145 that is connected to the carboxylate group of the ligand by means of hydrogen bonding via two water molecules. The backbone oxygen of betaQ23 forms a hydrogen bond with the carbonyl oxygen of the phenylacetic acid moiety through a bridging water molecule. Kinetic studies revealed that the site-directed mutants alphaF146Y, alphaF146A and alphaF146L all show significant changes in their interaction with the beta-lactam substrates as compared with the wild type. The alphaF146Y mutant had the same affinity for 6-aminopenicillanic acid as the wild-type enzyme, but was not able to synthesize penicillin G from phenylacetamide and 6-aminopenicillanic acid. The alphaF146L and alphaF146A enzymes had a 3-5-fold decreased affinity for 6-aminopenicillanic acid, but synthesized penicillin G more efficiently than the wild type. The combined results of the structural and kinetic studies show the importance of alphaF146 in the beta-lactam binding site and provide leads for engineering mutants with improved synthetic properties.
