Abstract [en]

High-resolution, three-dimensional structures of the archetypal glycoside hydrolase family 16 (GH16) endo-xyloglucanases Tm-NXG1 and Tm-NXG2 from nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) have been solved by x-ray crystallography. Key structural features that modulate the relative rates of substrate hydrolysis to transglycosylation in the GH16 xyloglucan-active enzymes were identified by structure-function studies of the recombinantly expressed enzymes in comparison with data for the strict xyloglucan endo-transglycosylase Ptt-XET16-34 from hybrid aspen ( Populus tremula 3 Populus tremuloides). Production of the loop deletion variant Tm-NXG1-Delta YNIIG yielded an enzyme that was structurally similar to Ptt- XET16-34 and had a greatly increased transglycosylation: hydrolysis ratio. Comprehensive bioinformatic analyses of XTH gene products, together with detailed kinetic data, strongly suggest that xyloglucanase activity has evolved as a gain of function in an ancestral GH16 XET to meet specific biological requirements during seed germination, fruit ripening, and rapid wall expansion.

Abstract [en]

 

In a time when the amount of biological data present in the public domain is becoming increasingly vast, the need for good classification systems has never been greater. In the field of glycoscience the necessity of a good classification for the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis, modification and degradation of polysaccharides is even more pronounced than in other fields. This is due to the complexity of the substrates, the polysaccharides, as the theoretical number of possible hexa-oligosaccharides from only hexoses exceeds 1012 isomers! 

An initiative to classify enzymes acting on carbohydrates began around 1990 by the French scientist Bernard Henrissat. The resulting database, the Carbohydrate Active enzymes database (CAZy), classifies enzymes by sequence similarity into families allowing the inference of structure and catalytic mechanism. What CAZy does not provide however, are means to understand how members of a family are related, and in what way they differ from each other. The top-down approach used in this thesis, combining phylogenetic analysis of whole CAZy families, or sub-families, with structural determinations and detailed kinetic analysis allows for exactly that.  

Finding determinants for transglycosylation versus hydrolysis within the xth gene product family of GH16 as well as restricting the hydrolytic enzymes to a well defined clade are integral parts of paper I. In paper II a new bacterial sub-clade within CE8 was discovered. The structural determination of theEscherichia coli outer membrane lipoprotein YbhC from from the new sub-clade explained the difference in specificity. The information provided in the two papers of this thesis gives a better understanding of the development of different specificities of diverse CAZY families as well as it aids in future gene product annotations. Furthermore this work has begun to fill the white spots uncovered in the phylogenetic trees.

Abstract [en]

In this thesis, enzymes acting on the primary cell wall hemicellulose xyloglucan are studied.  Xyloglucans are ubiquitous in land plants which make them an important polysaccharide to utilise for microbes and a potentially interesting raw material for various industries.  The function of xyloglucans in plants is mainly to improve primary cell wall characteristics by coating and tethering cellulose microfibrils together.  Some plants also utilise xyloglucans as storage polysaccharides in their seeds.

In microbes, a variety of different enzymes for degrading xyloglucans have been found.  In this thesis, the structure-function relationship of three different microbial endo-xyloglucanases from glycoside hydrolase families 5, 12 and 44 are probed and reveal details of the natural diversity found in xyloglucanases.  Hopefully, a better understanding of how xyloglucanases recognise and degrade their substrate can lead to improved saccharification processes of plant matter, finding uses in for example biofuel production.

In plants, xyloglucans are modified in muro by the xyloglucan transglycosylase/hydrolase (XTH) gene products.  Interestingly, closely related XTH gene products catalyse either transglycosylation (XET activity) or hydrolysis (XEH activity) with dramatically different effects on xyloglucan and on cell wall characteristics.  The strict transglycosylases transfer xyloglucan segments between individual xyloglucan molecules while the hydrolases degrade xyloglucan into oligosaccharides.  Here, we describe and determine, a major determinant of transglycosylation versus hydrolysis in XTH gene products by solving and comparing the first 3D structure of an XEH, Tm-NXG1 and a XET, PttXET16-34.  The XEH activity was hypothesised, and later confirmed to be restricted to subset of the XTH gene products.  The in situ localisation of XEH activity in roots and hypocotyls of Arabidopsis was also visualised for the first time.  Furthermore, an evolutionary scheme for how XTH gene products developed from bacterial beta-1,3;1,4 glucanases was also presented based on the characterisation of a novel plant endo-glucanase, PtEG16-1. The EG16s are proposed to predate XTH gene products and are with activity on both xyloglucan and beta-1,3;1,4 glucans an “intermediate” in the evolution from beta-1,3;1,4 glucanases to XTH gene products.
