Descrição: dc.descriptionVitamin B12 acts as a cofactor for various metabolic reactions important in living organisms. The Vitamin B12 biosynthesis is restricted to prokaryotes, which means, all eukaryotic organisms must acquire this molecule through diet. This study presents the investigation of Vitamin B12 metabolism and the characterization of precorrin-4 C(11)-methyltransferase (CobM), an enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of Vitamin B12 in Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis. The analysis of the C. pseudotuberculosis genome identified two Vitamin B12-dependent pathways, which can be strongly affected by a disrupted vitamin metabolism. Molecular dynamics, circular dichroism, and NMR-STD experiments identified regions in CobM that undergo conformational changes after s-adenosyl-L-methionine binding to promote the interaction of precorrin-4, a Vitamin B12 precursor. The binding of s-adenosyl-L-methionine was examined along with the competitive binding of adenine, dATP, and suramin. Based on fluorescence spectroscopy experiments the dissociation constant for the four ligands and the target protein could be determined; SAM (1.4 ± 0.7 µM), adenine (17.8 ± 1.5 µM), dATP (15.8 ± 2.0 µM), and Suramin (6.3 ± 1.1 µM). The results provide rich information for future investigations of potential drug targets within the C. pseudotuberculosis's Vitamin B12 metabolism and related pathways to reduce the pathogen's virulence in its hosts.-
