Crystallographic and mass spectrometric analyses of a tandem GNAT protein from the clavulanic acid biosynthesis pathway.
(3R,5R)-Clavulanic acid (CA) is a clinically important inhibitor of Class A beta-lactamases. Sequence comparisons suggest that orf14 of the clavulanic acid biosynthesis gene cluster encodes for an acetyl transferase (CBG). Crystallographic studies reveal CBG to be a member of the emerging structural subfamily of tandem Gcn5-related acetyl transferase (GNAT) proteins. Two crystal forms (C2 and P2(1) space groups) of CBG were obtained; in both forms one molecule of acetyl-CoA (AcCoA) was bound ...Expand abstract
