Bioinformatics analyses, including secondary structure prediction, CD, and crystallography, were combined to characterize the molecular architecture of Trypanosoma brucei TBC-B. An efficient recombinant expression system was prepared, material-purified, and characterized by CD. Extensive crystallization screening, allied with the use of limited proteolysis, led to structures of the N-terminal ubiquitin-like and C-terminal cytoskeleton-associated protein with glycine-rich segment domains at 2.35-Å and 1.6-Å resolution, respectively. These are compact globular domains that appear to be linked by a flexible segment. The ubiquitin-like domain contains two lysines that are spatially conserved with residues known to participate in ubiquitinylation, and so may represent a module that, through covalent attachment, regulates the signalling and/or protein degradation associated with the control of microtubule assembly, catastrophe, or function. The TBC-B C-terminal cytoskeleton-associated protein with glycine-rich segment domain, a known tubulin-binding structure, is the only such domain encoded by the T. brucei genome. Interestingly, in the crystal structure, the peptide-binding groove of this domain forms intermolecular contacts with the C-terminus of a symmetry-related molecule, an association that may mimic interactions with the C-terminus of α-tubulin or other physiologically relevant partners. The interaction of TBC-B with the α-tubulin C-terminus may, in particular, protect from post-translational modifications, or simply assist in the shepherding of the protein into polymerization.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Morgan, Rachel E.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/41304/1/Fleming_2-1p0b21o7bltoj0.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Fyfe, Paul K.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Hunter, William N.</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Fyfe, Paul K.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>Attribution 3.0 Unported</dc:rights> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>The architecture of Trypanosoma brucei tubulin-binding cofactor B and implications for function</dcterms:title> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/41304/1/Fleming_2-1p0b21o7bltoj0.pdf"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-02-13T13:05:23Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2013-07</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Fleming, Jennifer R.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kelly, Sharon M.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Morgan, Rachel E.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kelly, Sharon M.</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/41304"/> <dc:contributor>Fleming, Jennifer R.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Hunter, William N.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
