|PubMed Abstract||Inosine 5'-monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) catalyzes the rate-limiting step in the de novo GTP biosynthetic pathway and plays essential roles in cell proliferation. As a clinical target, IMPDH ...Inosine 5'-monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) catalyzes the rate-limiting step in the de novo GTP biosynthetic pathway and plays essential roles in cell proliferation. As a clinical target, IMPDH has been studied for decades, but it has only been within the last years that we are starting to understand the complexity of the mechanisms of its physiological regulation. Here, we report structural and functional insights into how adenine and guanine nucleotides control a conformational switch that modulates the assembly of the two human IMPDH enzymes into cytoophidia and allosterically regulates their catalytic activity. In vitro reconstituted micron-length cytoophidia-like structures show catalytic activity comparable to unassembled IMPDH but, in turn, are more resistant to GTP/GDP allosteric inhibition. Therefore, IMPDH cytoophidia formation facilitates the accumulation of high levels of guanine nucleotides when the cell requires it. Finally, we demonstrate that most of the IMPDH retinopathy-associated mutations abrogate GTP/GDP-induced allosteric inhibition and alter cytoophidia dynamics.|

+Jan 31, 2019. EMDB accession codes are about to change! (news from PDBe EMDB page)
EMDB accession codes are about to change! (news from PDBe EMDB page)
- The allocation of 4 digits for EMDB accession codes will soon come to an end. Whilst these codes will remain in use, new EMDB accession codes will include an additional digit and will expand incrementally as the available range of codes is exhausted. The current 4-digit format prefixed with “EMD-” (i.e. EMD-XXXX) will advance to a 5-digit format (i.e. EMD-XXXXX), and so on. It is currently estimated that the 4-digit codes will be depleted around Spring 2019, at which point the 5-digit format will come into force.
- The EM Navigator/Yorodumi systems omit the EMD- prefix.
