Title: Coordination of phage genome degradation versus host genome protection by a bifunctional restriction-modification enzyme visualized by CryoEM.
Authors: Betty W Shen / Joel D Quispe / Yvette Luyten / Benjamin E McGough / Richard D Morgan / Barry L Stoddard /
Abstract: Restriction enzymes that combine methylation and cleavage into a single assemblage and modify one DNA strand are capable of efficient adaptation toward novel targets. However, they must reliably ...Restriction enzymes that combine methylation and cleavage into a single assemblage and modify one DNA strand are capable of efficient adaptation toward novel targets. However, they must reliably cleave invasive DNA and methylate newly replicated unmodified host sites. One possible solution is to enforce a competition between slow methylation at a single unmodified host target, versus faster cleavage that requires multiple unmodified target sites in foreign DNA to be brought together in a reaction synapse. To examine this model, we have determined the catalytic behavior of a bifunctional type IIL restriction-modification enzyme and determined its structure, via cryoelectron microscopy, at several different stages of assembly and coordination with bound DNA targets. The structures demonstrate a mechanism in which an initial dimer is formed between two DNA-bound enzyme molecules, positioning the endonuclease domain from each enzyme against the other's DNA and requiring further additional DNA-bound enzyme molecules to enable cleavage.

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.
