    Protein Summary

    The hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima has been the target of choice at the JointCenter for Structural Genomics (JCSG) for pipeline development and genome-wide structural annotation. Aminoacyl tRNA-synthetases (AARSs) are important enzymes of the protein translation apparatus. They are present in organisms from all kingdoms of life and are considered central to the origin of life. The main function of these proteins are to covalently append the 20 standard amino acids to their cognate tRNA's. The reaction proceeds in a two-step ATP-dependent manner, with the amino acid activated by its interaction with ATP in the first step. In the subsequent step, the mixed-anhydride reacts with tRNA forming an aminoacyl-tRNA. Most organisms contain individual tRNA-synthetases specific towards each of the twenty standard amino acids. Based on similarities in their sequences and structures, aaRSs have been broadly grouped into two classes (class I and II) each containing 10 aaRSs. Tryptophanyl tRNA-synthetase (E.C is a class I aaRS. Members of this class typically adopt a Rossmann fold and contain two highly conserved sequence motifs "HIGH" and "KMSKS" that are critical for function. Apart from TrpRS the class I group also contains ArgRS, CysRS, GlnRS, GluRS, IleRS, LeuRS, MetRS, ValRS, and TyrRS. Among these, TyrRS is particularly close, both in terms of sequence and structural similarity, to TrpRS .
    Similar to the structures of other TrpRSs, TM0492 consists of two domains. The N-terminal catalytic domain adopts a canonical Rossmann fold (RF; residues 1-181, 295-328) with a central five-stranded parallel b-sheet (b1- b5, strand order for the b-sheet is 32145), and the TAB domain adopts an all-helical fold (residues 187-285). The C-terminal TAB domain is composed of five helices (H12-H16) that are packed as a bundle. In addition, a short hinge region (182-186) connects the RF and the TAB domains. The catalytic domain of TrpRSs belong to the nucleotidylyl transferase superfamily of SCOP.

    Ligand Summary

    TM0492 has a [4Fe-4S] cluster bound at the C-terminal tRNA anti-codon binding (TAB) domain, and a L-Trp molecule bound at the active site. In addition, the final model contains two chlorine ions and 56 water molecules.
    TM0492 is the first aaRS
    structure in which a [4Fe-4S] cluster is seen bound at the TAB domain, close to the anticodon binding site.
