    Protein Summary

    The TM0061 gene of Thermotoga maritima encodes xylanase 10A, and this PDB entry contains a second of the two C-terminal type 9 carbohydrate-binding modules (CBM9-2) that can bind to all cellulose allomorphs and a range of small soluble sugars up to four sugar moieties in length. The first of the two CBM9 modules (CMB9-1) is very divergent and its exact function is not clear. TM0061 contains also two unrelated, type 4  carbohydrate-binding modules (CBM4) modules on the N-terminus and a central catalytic hydrolase domain.

    CBM9 folds into an immunoglobulin-like ?-sandwich with three calcium ions, thought to contribute to the thermostability of the protein, coordinated at loop regions (Fig. 1). Two tryptophan residues, Trp71 and Trp175, arranged parallel to each other, stack against the apolar surfaces of the carbohydrate ligand (Fig. 1). The reducing end of the sugar points inside the pocket formed by the tryptophans and provides the remaining interactions in an intricate hydrogen network involving mainly charged residues (1).

    Figure 1. Ribbon diagram of CBM9-2 bound to ?-D-glucose. CBM9-2 is spectrally colored from N-terminus (blue) to C-terminus (red). Calcium ions are shown in gray. Residues interacting with the ligand are indicated.

    Glucose binding in the pocket occurs in a different orientation to the one observed with cellobiose (1), which is surprising, given the similarity between the two substrates. The reasons for this difference are not clear. Analysis of CBM9-2  homologs shows conservation of secondary structure elements, metal binding sites and residues involved in substrate binding, suggesting that carbohydrate-binding function is also conserved.
