Crystal structure of horse wild-type cyclophilin B
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Hyperelastosis cutis is an inherited autosomal recessive connective tissue disorder. Affected horses are characterized by hyperextensible skin, scarring, and severe lesions along the back. The disorder is caused by a mutation in cyclophilin B. RESULTS: The crystal structures of both wild-type and mutated (Gly6->Arg) horse cyclophilin B are presented. The mutation neither affects the overall fold of the enzyme nor impairs the catalytic site structure. Instead, it locally rearranges the flexible N-terminal end of the polypeptide chain and also makes it more rigid. CONCLUSIONS: Interactions of the mutated cyclophilin B with a set of endoplasmic reticulum-resident proteins must be affected.
