dc.description.abstractInitiation of plasmid rolling circle replication(RCR)is catalyzed by a plasmid-encoded Repprotein that performs aTyr-andmetal-dependentsite-specific cleavage of one DNA strand within the double-strand origin(dso)of replication.The crystal structure of RepB,the initiator protein of the streptococcal plasmid pMV158,constitutes the first example of a Repprotein structure from RCR plasmids.It forms a toroidal homohexamericring where each RepBprotomer consists of two domains:theC-terminal domain involved in oligomerization and the N-terminal domain containing the DNA-binding and endonuclease activities.Binding of Mn2+ to the active site is essential for the catalytic activity of RepB.In this work,we have studied the effects of metal binding on the structure and thermostability of full-length hexameric RepB and each of its separate domains by using different biophysical approaches.The analysis of the temperature-induced changes in RepB shows that the first thermal transition,which occurs at a range of temperatures physiologically relevant for the pMV158 pneumococcal host,represents an irreversible conformational change that affects the secondary and tertiary structure of the protein,which becomes prone to self-associate.This transition,which is also shown to result in loss of DNA binding capacity and catalytic activity of RepB,is confined to its N-terminal domain.Mn2+ protects the protein from undergoing this detrimental conformational hange and the ob served protection correlates well with the high-affinity binding of the cation to the active site,as substituting one of the metal-ligands at this site impairs both the protein affinity for Mn2+ and the Mn2+-driven thermostabilization effect.The level of catalytic activity of the protein,especially in the caseof full-length RepB,cannot be explained based only on the high-affinity binding of Mn2+ at the active site and suggests the existence of additional,lower-affinity metalbinding site(s),missing in these parate catalytic domain,that must also be saturated for maximal activity.The molecular bases of the thermostabilizing effect of Mn2+ on the N-terminal domain of the protein as well as the potential location of additional metalbinding sitesin the entire RepB are discussed.es_ES
