A rationally designed monomeric variant of anthranilate phosphoribosyltransferase from Sulfolobus solfataricus is as active as the dimeric wild-type enzyme but less thermostable.

Abstract

The anthranilate phosphoribosyltransferase from Sulfolobus solfataricus (ssAnPRT) forms a homodimer with a hydrophobic subunit interface. To elucidate the role of oligomerisation for catalytic activity and thermal stability of the enzyme, we loosened the dimer by replacing two apolar interface residues with negatively charged residues (mutations I36E and M47D). The purified double mutant ...
