Sažetak

Human dipeptidyl peptidase III (DPP III) is a member of the zinc-metallopeptidase family M49
with a role in intracellular protein catabolism. Ligand-free crystal structure of yeast and human orthologues
provided insight into the enzyme's active center and enabled some assumptions about the enzyme -
substrate interactions. The molecular modeling performed for human and yeast DPP III indicated involvement
of Asn406 and Asn415, respectively in ligand binding. To investigate further the role of this
asparagine residue, conserved in all eukaryotic M49 peptidases, a site-directed mutagenesis of human
DPP III was carried out. Replacement of Asn406 with Gln, but not with Ser, resulted in a large decrease in
the enzyme's binding affinity for competitive peptide inhibitor and in catalytic efficiency. Molecular dynamics
simulations performed for enzyme-substrate complexes, revealed changed coordination of the active-
site zinc ion and the orientation of the catalytically important His568, in N406Q, but not in the N406S
complexes.(doi: 10.5562/cca1808)
