  • We report the co-crystal structure of the (catalytic Cys)-to-Ala mutant of the deubiquitinase domain of the Legionella pneumophila effector SdeA (SdeA DUB ) with its ubiquitin (Ub) product. Most of the intermolecular interactions are preserved in this product-bound structure compared to that of the previously characterized complex of SdeA DUB with the suicide inhibitor ubiquitin vinylmethyl ester (Ub-VME), whose structure models the acyl-enzyme thioester intermediate ...

    We report the co-crystal structure of the (catalytic Cys)-to-Ala mutant of the deubiquitinase domain of the Legionella pneumophila effector SdeA (SdeA DUB ) with its ubiquitin (Ub) product. Most of the intermolecular interactions are preserved in this product-bound structure compared to that of the previously characterized complex of SdeA DUB with the suicide inhibitor ubiquitin vinylmethyl ester (Ub-VME), whose structure models the acyl-enzyme thioester intermediate. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) titration studies show a chemical shift perturbation pattern that suggests that the same interactions also exist in solution. Isothermal titration calorimetry and NMR titration data reveal that the affinity of wild-type (WT) SdeA DUB for Ub is significantly lower than that of the Cys-to-Ala mutant. This is potentially due to repulsive interaction between the thiolate ion of the catalytic Cys residue in WT SdeA DUB and the carboxylate group of the C-terminal Gly76 residue in Ub. In the context of SdeA DUB catalysis, this electrostatic repulsion arises after the hydrolysis of the scissile isopeptide bond in the acyl-enzyme intermediate and the consequent formation of the C-terminal carboxylic group in the Ub fragment. We hypothesize that this electrostatic repulsion may expedite the release of the Ub product by SdeA DUB . We note that similar repulsive interactions may also occur in other deubiquitinases and hydrolases of ubiquitin-like protein modifiers and may constitute a fairly general mechanism of product release within this family. This is a potentially important feature for a family of enzymes that form extensive protein-protein interactions during enzyme-substrate engagement.
