Abstract : Carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) inhibitor, IC, shows no homology to any other known proteinase inhibitors and rather belongs to the phosphatidylethanolamine-binding protein (PEBP) family. We report here on the crystal structure of the IC-CPY complex at 2.7 A resolution. The structure of IC in the complex with CPY consists of one major beta-type domain and a N-terminal helical segment. The structure of the complex contains two binding sites of IC toward CPY, the N-terminal inhibitory reactive site (the primary CPY-binding site) and the secondary CPY-binding site, which interact with the S1 substrate-binding site of CPY and the hydrophobic surface flanked by the active site of the enzyme, respectively. It was also revealed that IC had the ligand-binding site, which is conserved among PEBPs and the putative binding site of the polar head group of phospholipid. The complex structure and analyses of IC mutants for inhibitory activity and the binding to CPY demonstrate that the N-terminal inhibitory reactive site is essential both for inhibitory function and the complex formation with CPY and that the binding of IC to CPY constitutes a novel mode of the proteinase-protein inhibitor interaction. The unique binding mode of IC toward the cognate proteinase provides insights into the inhibitory mechanism of PEBPs toward serine proteinases and into the specific biological functions of IC belonging to the PEBP family as well.

Abstract : Carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) inhibitor I(C) is a naturally occurring serine carboxypeptidase inhibitor from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the sequence of which is not homologous with any other known proteinase inhibitor and is classified as the phosphatidylethanolamine-binding protein (PEBP). I(C) has been crystallized in complex with the deglycosylated form of CPY by the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion technique with ammonium sulfate as a precipitant. The crystals of the complex belong to space group P2(1)2(1)2(1), with unit-cell parameters a = 81.13, b = 186.6, c = 65.14 A. Diffraction data were collected to 2.7 A resolution. Structure determination of the complex is in progress by the molecular-replacement method using the structure of CPY as a search model.

Title : The multiple site binding of carboxypeptidase Y inhibitor (IC) to the cognate proteinase. Implications for the biological roles of the phosphatidylethanolamine-binding protein - Mima_2003_J.Biol.Chem_278_29792

Abstract : The serine carboxypeptidase inhibitor in the cytoplasm of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IC, specifically inhibits vacuolar carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) and belongs to a functionally unknown family of phosphatidylethanolamine-binding proteins (PEBPs). In the presence of 1 M guanidine hydrochloride, a CPY-IC complex is formed and is almost fully activated. The reactivities of phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, p-chloromercuribenzoic acid, and diisopropyl fluorophosphate toward the complex are considerably increased in 1 M guanidine hydrochloride, indicating that IC contains a binding site other than its inhibitory reactive site. IC is able to form the complex with diisopropyl fluorophosphate-modified CPY. Tryptic digestion of the complex indicates that two fragments from IC are involved in complex formation with CPY. These findings demonstrate the multiple site binding of IC with CPY. Considering the fact that mouse PEBP has recently been identified as a novel thrombin inhibitor, the binding that characterizes the CPY-IC complex could be a common feature of PEBPs.

Title : Overexpression and functional characterization of a serine carboxypeptidase inhibitor (I(C)) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae - Mima_2002_J.Biochem_132_967

Abstract : Carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) inhibitor, I(C), a cytoplasmic inhibitor of vacuolar proteinases in yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, was purified by means of a high-level expression system using a proteinase-deficient strain, BJ2168, and an expression vector with the promoter GAL1. The purified I(C) exists as a monomeric beta-protein in solution with a mole-cular weight of 24,398.4 as determined by gel filtration chromatography, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, and far-UV CD spectroscopy. The acetylated N-terminal methionine residue is the sole posttranslational modification. I(C) specifically inhibits both the peptidase and anilidase activities of CPY with inhibitor constants (K(i)) of approximately 1.0 x 10(-9) M. The chemical modification of I(C) with sulfhydryl reagents indicated that it lacks disulfide bonds and has two free SH groups, which are responsible, not for the inhibitory function, but, apparently, for the folding of the overall structure. The formation of a complex of I(C) with CPY was highly specific, as evidenced by no detectable interaction with pro-CPY. Chemical modification studies of the CPY-I(C) complex with specific reagents demonstrated that the catalytic Ser146 and S1 substrate-binding site of CPY are covered in the complex.

Title : N-terminal acetyl group is essential for the inhibitory function of carboxypeptidase Y inhibitor (I(C)) - Mima_2002_FEBS.Lett_532_207

Abstract : Carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) inhibitor, I(C), a yeast cytoplasmic inhibitor in which the N-terminal amino acid is acetylated, was expressed in Escherichia coli and produced as an unacetylated form of I(C) (unaI(C)). Circular dichroism and fluorescence measurements showed that unaI(C) and I(C) were structurally identical and produce identical complexes with CPY. However, the K(i) values for unaI(C) for anilidase and peptidase activity of CPY were much larger, by 700- and 60-fold, respectively, than those of I(C). The reactivities of phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride and p-chloromercuribenzoic acid toward the CPY-unaI(C) complex were considerably higher than those toward the CPY-I(C) complex. Thus, the N-terminal acetyl group of I(C) is essential for achieving a tight interaction with CPY and for its complete inactivation.

Abstract : To investigate the structural importance of a "disulfide zipper" motif of carboxypeptidase Y, disulfide-deficient mutant enzymes were expressed in two strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The mutant enzymes were rapidly degraded into fragments by intracellular proteases. Thus, it is concluded that the disulfide zipper is essential in maintaining the structural integrity of CPase Y against proteolytic susceptibility.

Title : Amphipathic property of free thiol group contributes to an increase in the catalytic efficiency of carboxypeptidase Y - Mima_2002_Eur.J.Biochem_269_3220

Abstract : Cys341 of carboxypeptidase Y, which constitutes one side of the solvent-accessible surface of the S1 binding pocket, was replaced with Gly, Ser, Asp, Val, Phe or His by site-directed mutagenesis. Kinetic analysis, using Cbz-dipeptide substrates, revealed that polar amino acids at the 341 position increased K(m) whereas hydrophobic amino acids in this position tended to decrease K(m). This suggests the involvement of Cys341 in the formation of the Michaelis complex in which Cys341 favors the formation of hydrophobic interactions with the P1 side chain of the substrate as well as with residues comprising the surface of the S1 binding pocket. Furthermore, C341G and C341S mutants had significantly higher k(cat) values with substrates containing the hydrophobic P1 side chain than C341V or C341F. This indicates that the nonhydrophobic property conferred by Gly or Ser gives flexibility or instability to the S1 pocket, which contributes to the increased k(cat) values of C341G or C341S. The results suggest that Cys341 may interact with His397 during catalysis. Therefore, we propose a dual role for Cys341: (a) its hydrophobicity allows it to participate in the formation of the Michaelis complex with hydrophobic substrates, where it maintains an unfavorable steric constraint in the S1 subsite; (b) its interaction with the imidazole ring of His397 contributes to the rate enhancement by stabilizing the tetrahedral intermediate in the transition state.
