3U53: Crystal Structure Of Human Ap4a Hydrolase

ApA hydrolase (asymmetrical diadenosine tetraphosphate hydrolase, EC, an enzyme involved in a number of biological processes, is characterized as cleaving the polyphosphate chain at the fourth phosphate from the bound adenosine moiety. This paper presents the crystal structure of wild-type and E58A mutant human ApA hydrolase. Similar to the canonical Nudix fold, human ApA hydrolase shows the common alphabetaalpha-sandwich architecture. Interestingly, two sulfate ions and one diphosphate coordinated with some conserved residues were observed in the active cleft, which affords a better understanding of a possible mode of substrate binding.
