A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Inosine-5′-monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) is a rate-limiting enzyme in nucleotide biosynthesis studied as an important therapeutic target and its complex functioning in vivo is still puzzling and debated. Here, we highlight the structural basis for the regulation of IMPDHs by MgATP. Our results demonstrate the essential role of the CBS tandem, conserved among almost all IMPDHs. We found that Pseudomonas aeruginosa IMPDH is an octameric enzyme allosterically regulated by MgATP and showed that this octameric organization is widely conserved in the crystal structures of other IMPDHs. We also demonstrated that human IMPDH1 adopts two types of complementary octamers that can pile up into isolated fibers in the presence of MgATP. The aggregation of such fibers in the autosomal dominant mutant, D226N, could explain the onset of the retinopathy adRP10. Thus, the regulatory CBS modules in IMPDHs are functional and they can either modulate catalysis or macromolecular assembly.
