3WA7: Crystal Structure Of Selenomethionine-labeled Tannase From Lactobacillus Plantarum In The Orthorhombic Crystal
Proteins (2013) 81 p.2052-2058
Tannin acylhydrolase (EC 22.214.171.124) referred commonly as tannase catalyzes the hydrolysis of the galloyl ester bond of tannins to release gallic acid. Although the enzyme is useful for various industries, the tertiary structure is not yet determined. In this study, we determined the crystal structure of tannase produced by Lactobacillus plantarum. The tannase structure belongs to a member of alpha/beta-hydrolase superfamily with an additional "lid" domain. A glycerol molecule derived from cryoprotectant solution was accommodated into the tannase active site. The binding manner of glycerol to tannase seems to be similar to that of the galloyl moiety in the substrate. Proteins 2013; 81:2052-2058. (c) 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
