The lactose-specific phosphocarrier protein enzyme III of the bacterial phosphoenol-pyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system of Staphylococcus aureus was modified by site-specific mutagenesis on the corresponding lacF gene in order to replace the histidine residues 78 and 82 of the amino acid sequence with a serine residue. Wild-type and both mutant genes were overexpressed in Escherichia coli and the gene products were purified to homogeneity. The conformation of wild-type and mutant proteins were monitored by 1H-NMR spectroscopy. In vitro phosphorylation studies on mutant lactose-specific enzyme III, as well as evidence from NMR spectroscopy, lead to the conclusion that His78 is the active-site for phosphorylation of lactose-specific enzyme III by phospho-HPr (histidine-containing protein). The role of His82 probably is the enhancement of velocity and efficiency of the phosphotransfer from lactose-specific enzyme III to lactose-specific enzyme II. This result refutes the conclusion of former work based on data by protelytic cleavage and sequencing of the 32P-labeled peptide of lactose-specific enzyme III that His82 is the active-site for phosphorylation.
