THE HIGH RESOLUTION X-RAY STRUCTURE OF PAPAIN COMPLEXED WITH FRAGMENTS OF THE TRYPANOSOMA BRUCEI CYSTEINE PROTEASE INHIBITOR ICP.

Publication Abstract from PubMed

Attempts to cocrystallize the cysteine protease papain derived from the latex of Carica papaya with an inhibitor of cysteine proteases (ICP) from Trypanosoma brucei were unsuccessful. However, crystals of papain that diffracted to higher resolution, 1.5 A, than other crystals of this archetypal cysteine protease were obtained, so the analysis was continued. Surprisingly, the substrate-binding cleft was occupied by two short peptide fragments which have been assigned as remnants of ICP. Comparisons reveal that these peptides bind in the active site in a manner similar to that of the human cysteine protease inhibitor stefin B when it is complexed to papain. The assignment of the fragment sequences is consistent with the specificity of the protease.
