Abstract

We report a 2.0 Å structure of the CAE31940 protein, a proteobacterial NMT1/THI5-like domain-containing protein. We also discuss the primary and tertiary structure similarity with its homologs. The highly conserved FGGXMP motif was identified in CAE31940, which corresponds to the GCCCX motif located in the vicinity of the active center characteristic for THi5-like proteins found in yeast. This suggests that the FGGXMP motif may be a unique hallmark of proteobacterial NMT1/THI5-like proteins.
