Abstract:

Multidrug-resistance-associated protein 6 (MRP6/ABCC6) is a protein belonging to the ABC transporter family. Proteins in this family share many characteristic structural features, including two membrane-spanning domains and two nucleotide-binding domains (NBD1 and NBD2), that function cooperatively but not equally bind and hydrolyze ATP. The MRP6 protein is structurally and functionally poorly characterized. Previously, we showed, by NMR spectroscopy, that a fragment of MRP6-NBD1 presents helical structure and fluorescence experiments demonstrated that peptide binds ATP. These data suggested that the study on selected regions could be a valid approach to define the structure of MRP6.

In the present study, to better characterize MRP6-NBD1, we report data of CD spectroscopy, nucleotide binding and ATP hydrolysis on two different polypeptides, one corresponding to the full-length NBD1 domain (residues from Asp-627 to Leu-851) and the oth

We report that both polypeptides are highly structured in aqueous buffer and in 20% trifluoroethanol showing considerable helical and β-structure content. The ATP hydrolysis activity is exhibited only by the full-length NBD1 domain. Comparison between our

  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
