    Simocyclinone D8 (SD8) is an antibiotic produced by Streptomyces antibioticus that targets DNA gyrase. A previous structure of SD8 complexed with the N-terminal domain of the DNA gyrase A protein (GyrA) suggested that four SD8 molecules stabilized a tetramer of the protein; subsequent mass spectrometry experiments suggested that a protein dimer with two symmetry-related SD8s was more likely. This work describes the structures of a further truncated form of the GyrA N-terminal domain fragment with and without SD8 bound. The structure with SD8 has the two SD8 molecules bound within the same GyrA dimer. This new structure is entirely consistent with the mutations in GyrA that confer SD8 resistance and, by comparison with a new apo structure of the GyrA N-terminal domain, reveals the likely conformation changes that occur upon SD8 binding and the detailed mechanism of SD8 inhibition of gyrase. Isothermal titration calorimetry experiments are consistent with the crystallography results and further suggest that a previously observed complex between SD8 and GyrB is ~1000-fold weaker than the interaction with GyrA.
