Understanding protein-protein interactions is a key challenge in biochemistry. In this work, we describe a more accurate methodology to predict Hot-Spots (HS) in protein-protein interfaces from their native complex structure compared to previous published Machine Learning (ML) techniques. Our model is trained on a large number of complexes and on a significantly larger number of different Cited by: The mechanism by which the drug export protein TolC is utilized for import of the cytotoxin colicin E1 across the outer membrane and periplasmic space is addressed. Studies of the initial binding of colicin E1 with TolC, occlusion of membrane-incorporated TolC ion channels, and the structure underlying the colicin–TolC complex were based on the interactions with TolC of individual colicin Cited by: 7.

Colicin production. Colicin E1 was produced and purified to homogeneity by the method of Stahl et al. (33). Briefly, a colicin E1-producing strain of E. coli was grown in LB medium, and colicin production was induced by the addition of mitomycin C (EMD Biosciences, San Diego, CA) to the medium.

Book Description. This book presents a case history of a patient with deficiency of the C8 complement component, to illustrate essential points about the mechanisms of immunity and to explain some of the immunological problems often seen in the clinic. It is helpful for medical and pre-medical students. Figure 3. Colicin E1 activity against Listeria monocytogenes. Figure 4. Potassium leakage induced by colicin E1. Figure 5.

Mol Microbiol. Nov;5(11) Investigation of the specificity of the interaction between colicin E9 and its immunity protein by site-directed by:   The immunity protein of colicin E7 (ImmE7) can bind specifically to the DNase-type colicin E7 and inhibit its bactericidal activity.

Here we report the angstrom crystal structure of the ImmE7 protein. This is the first x-ray structure determined in Cited by: Abstract. E colicins are plasmid-encoded, protein antibiotics produced by which kill sensitive cells after binding to the btuB-encoded cell surface receptor (DiMasi et al., ).Each E colicin plasmid also codes for the production of a specific immunity protein which, on synthesis, binds to the C-terminal domain of its cognate colicin (with the exception of the colicin El Author: R.

James, M. Curtis, R. Wallis, M. Osborne, C. Kleanthous, G. Moore. The immunity proteins to pore-forming colicins diffuse laterally in the membrane and interact with helices of the pore-forming domain of their cognate colicin just prior channel opening (12, –, 15).Genetic studies of A-type colicins indicate that the main determinant recognized by the immunity protein is the hydrophobic helical hairpin (12, 16).

The cognate complexes formed between the colicin DNases and their equivalent immunity proteins are among the highest affinity protein–protein interactions observed in nature, with K d s of ~ 10 − 15 M (Li et al., ).

Measurement of such high-affinity binding interactions presents a considerable challenge, requiring determination of the. The structural and energetic basis for high selectivity in a high-affinity protein-protein interaction. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A.

Nov 15;7(11) The immunity protein for colicin E9 (Im9) has been overproduced in a bacterial host in the absence of its colicin, to enable sufficient material to be isolated for structural studies.

The amino acid colicin E9 immunity protein (Im9), which inhibits the DNase activity of colicin E9, has been overexpressed in Escherichia coli and isotopically enriched with 15N and 13C. The rapid binding of cytotoxic colicin E3 by its cognate immunity protein Im3 is essential in safeguarding the producing cell.

The X‐ray structure of the E3/Im3 complex shows that the Im3 molecule interfaces with both the C‐terminal ribonuclease (RNase) domain and the N‐terminal translocation domain of E3. Abstract. Colicin E3 is a bacteriocin that penetrates sensitive cells and kills them by an enzymatic mode of action.

It acts as a highly specific RNase that cleaves 16S ribosomal RNA at a position 49 bases in from the 3’end (Nomura et al. ).Although only a single phosphodiester bond is cleaved and the fragments stay attached to each other following the endonucleolytic attack, protein Cited by: 2.

This plasmid-coded bactericidal protein is an endonuclease active on both single- and double-stranded DNA but with undefined specificity. An evidence describes the source of an annotation, e.g.

coli cell once it has passed into the cell. The C terminus has a hydrophobic helical hairpin, which appears to be involved in the toroidal pore formation, by perturbing the lipids and facilitating the insertion of the other more.

The immunity protein diffuses freely in the membrane and then recognizes within the lipid bilayer the colicin channel domain by interacting with its hydrophobic hairpin (Figure 1).

Figure 1. Colicin channels are made up of four helices: the voltage responsive segment (helices 5 and 6) and the helical hydrophobic hairpin (helices 8 and 9). The colicin DNase-specific immunity proteins interact with the endonuclease domain of the bacterial toxin colicin E9 with dissociation constants that span the millimolar to femtomolar affinity range.

Among the non-cognate interactions Im2 shows the strongest binding toward the E9 DNase domain with a K d of 10 −8 m, 6 orders of magnitude.

Curtis, R. Wallis, M. Osborne, C. Kleanthous, G. Moore. In molecular biology, the cloacin immunity protein is produced by bacteria if they contain a certain plasmid. It inhibits the bacterial polypeptide toxin, cloacin, which is produced by the same or other complexes with cloacin in equimolar quantities and inhibits it by binding with high affinity to the cloacin C-terminal catalytic domain.

Im9 is the cognate immunity protein for colicin E9.
