The CCP4 (Collaborative Computational Project, number 4) program suite is a collection of programs and associated data and subroutine libraries which can be used for macromolecular structure determination by X-ray crystallography. The suite is designed to be flexible, allowing users a number of methods of achieving their aims and so there may be more than one program to cover each function. The programs are written mainly in standard Fortran77. They are from a wide variety of sources but are connected by standard data file formats. The package has been ported to all the major platforms under both Unix and VMS. The suite is distributed by anonymous ftp from Daresbury Laboratory and is widely used throughout the world.

Abstract Collagens are large structural proteins that are prevalent in mammalian connective tissue. Peptides designed to include a glycine-proline-hydroxyproline (GPO) amino acid triad are biomimetic analogs of the collagen triple helix, a fold that is a hallmark of collagen-like sequences. To inform the rational engineering of collagen-like peptides and proteins for food systems, we report the crystal structure of the (GPO)10 peptide at 0.89-A resolution, solved using direct methods. We determi...

ABSTRACT The HIV-1 envelope glycoproteins (Env) undergo conformational changes upon interaction of the gp120 exterior glycoprotein with the CD4 receptor. The gp120 inner domain topological layers facilitate the transition of Env to the CD4-bound conformation. CD4 engages gp120 by introducing its phenylalanine 43 (Phe43) in a cavity (“the Phe43 cavity”) located at the interface between the inner and outer gp120 domains. Small CD4-mimetic compounds (CD4mc) can bind within the Phe43 cavity and trig...

Abstract We report, for the first time, the three-dimensional structure and biochemical properties of a UDP-galactose 4-epimerase-like L-threonine 3-dehydrogenase (GalE-like L-ThrDH) from Phytophthora infestans, a plant disease-causing fungus. We identified GalE-like L-ThrDH using Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) database as a candidate target for the development of a new fungicide. The GalE-like L-ThrDH gene was expressed in Escherichia coli, and its product was purified and chara...

Reactive Intermediate Deaminase (Rid) protein superfamily includes eight families among which the RidA is conserved in all domains of life. RidA proteins accelerate the deamination of the reactive 2-aminoacrylate (2AA), an enamine produced by some pyridoxal phosphate (PLP)-dependent enzymes. 2AA accumulation inhibits target enzymes with a detrimental impact on fitness. As a consequence of whole genome duplication, teleost fish have two ridA paralogs, while other extant vertebrates contain a sing...

Abstract Phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PI(3,5)P2) is an essential phosphoinositide required for endosome homeostasis and sorting for lysosomal degradation, however, the underlying mechanisms, especially in mammals, remain elusive or unexplored. Here we determined a structure of PI(3,5)P2 bound to Sorting Nexin 11 (SNX11) with an opened PPII-C loop. We also obtained a SNX11 structure with its PPII-C in “closed” form that serves as a potential PI3P-binding model. In addition, our results ...

The canonical mechanistic model explaining potassium channel gating is of a conformational change that alternately dilates and constricts a collar-like intracellular entrance to the pore. It is based on the premise that K+ ions maintain a complete hydration shell while passing between the transmembrane cavity and cytosol, which must be accommodated. To put the canonical model to the test, we locked the conformation of a Kir K+ channel to prevent widening of the narrow collar. Unexpectedly, condu...

Aeromonas exotoxin A (AE) is a bacterial virulence factor recently discovered in a clinical case of necrotising fasciitis caused by the flesh-eating Aeromonas hydrophila. Here, database mining shows that AE is present in the genome of several emerging Aeromonas pathogenic species. The X-ray crystal structure of AE was solved at 2.3 A and presents all the hallmarks common to diphthamide-specific mono-ADP-ribosylating toxins, suggesting AE is a fourth member of this family alongside the diphtheria...

Human parainfluenza virus type III (HPIV3) is a common respiratory pathogen that afflicts children and can be fatal in vulnerable populations, including the immunocompromised. Unfortunately, an effective vaccine or therapeutic is not currently available, resulting in tens of thousands of hospitalizations per year. In an effort to discover a protective antibody against HPIV3, we screened the B cell repertoires from peripheral blood, tonsils, or spleen from healthy children and adults. These analy...

Activated protein C (APC) is a plasma serine protease with antithrombotic and cytoprotective functions. Based on the hypothesis that specific inhibition of APC’s anticoagulant but not its cytoprotective activity can be beneficial for hemophilia therapy, 2 types of inhibitory monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are tested: A type I active-site binding mAb and a type II mAb binding to an exosite on APC (required for anticoagulant activity) as shown by X-ray crystallography. Both mAbs increase thrombin ge...

Activation of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) enzymes by glucose 6-phosphate (G6P) and other phospho-sugars is of major physiological relevance. Previous kinetic, site-directed mutagenesis and crystallographic results are consistent with allosteric activation, but the existence of a G6P-allosteric site was questioned and competitive activation-in which G6P would bind to the active site eliciting the same positive homotropic effect as the substrate PEP-was proposed. Here we report the crys...
