In molecular biology, the Cys/Met metabolism PLP-dependent enzyme family is a family of proteins including enzymes involved in cysteine and methionine metabolism which use PLP (pyridoxal-5'-phosphate) as a cofactor.

PLP is the active form of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine or pyridoxal). PLP is a versatile catalyst, acting as a coenzyme in a multitude of reactions, including decarboxylation, deamination and transamination.[1][2][3] PLP-dependent enzymes are primarily involved in the biosynthesis of amino acids and amino acid-derived metabolites, but they are also found in the biosynthetic pathways of amino sugars and in the synthesis or catabolism of neurotransmitters; pyridoxal phosphate can also inhibit DNA polymerases and several steroid receptors .[4] Inadequate levels of pyridoxal phosphate in the brain can cause neurological dysfunction, particularly epilepsy.[5]

PLP enzymes exist in their resting state as a Schiff base, the aldehyde group of PLP forming a linkage with the epsilon-amino group of an active site lysine residue on the enzyme. The alpha-amino group of the substrate displaces the lysine epsilon-amino group, in the process forming a new aldimine with the substrate. This aldimine is the common central intermediate for all PLP-catalysed reactions, enzymatic and non-enzymatic.[6]

A number of pyridoxal-dependent enzymes involved in the metabolism of cysteine, homocysteine and methionine have been shown,[7][8] to be evolutionary related. These enzymes are proteins of about 400 amino-acid residues. The pyridoxal-P group is attached to a lysine residue located in the central section of these enzymes.

members[edit]

There are five different structurally related types of PLP enzymes. Members of this family belong to the type I and are:[9]

  • in the transsulfurylation route for methionine biosynthesis:
    • Cystathionine γ-synthase (metB) which joins an activated homoserine ether (acetyl or succinyl) with cysteine to form cystathionine
    • Cystathionine β-lyase (metC) which splits cystathionine into homocysteine and a deaminated alanine (pyruvate and ammonia)
  • in the direct sulfurylation pathway for methionine biosynthesis:
    • O-acetyl homoserine sulfhydrylase (metY) which adds a thiol group to an activated homoserine ether
    • O-succinylhomoserine sulfhydrylase (metZ) which adds a thiol group to an activated homoserine ether
  • in the reverse transsulfurylation pathway for cysteine biosynthesis:
    • Cystathionine γ-lyase (no common gene name) which joins an activated serine ether (acetyl or succinyl) with homocysteine to form cystathionine
    • Not Cystathionine β-synthase which is a PLP enzyme type II
  • cysteine biosynthesis from serine:
    • O-acetyl serine sulfhydrylase (cysK or cysM) which adds a thiol group to an activated serine ether
  • methionine degradation:
  • Methionine gamma-lyase (mdeA) which breaks down methionine at the thioether and amine bounds

Note: MetC, metB, metZ are closely related and have fuzzy boundaries so fall under the same NCBI orthologue cluster (COG0626).

Structures

For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the Cys_Met_Meta_PP domain has been found. There are 161 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein seqence.
