APS/APCF Symposium & MCSG 14th Annual Meeting

The symposium will review the achievements of X-ray macromolecular crystallography and the future structural biology opportunities in biomedical and biological sciences. We will assess the progress on understanding structures of proteins and their families and will contemplate the future impact of new free electron laser light sources on biology and chemistry. The potential contribution and impact of Advanced Photon Source upgrade and new protein research facilities will be discussed in the context of future advances in structural and molecular biology.  

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) commemorates the centennial of X-ray diffraction and declares 2014 the International Year of Crystallography.

Molecular basis for AUXIN RESPONSE FACTOR protein interaction and the control of auxin response repression.

Korasick DA, Westfall CS, Lee SG, Nanao MH, Dumas R, Hagen G, Guilfoyle TJ, Jez JM, Strader LC..Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2014 Apr 8;111(14):5427-32.

ARF7 PB1 domains formed an extended directional pentamer within the crystal. (A) The ARF7PB1 crystal contains an oriented ARF7PB1 domain pentamer of chains A, B, L, O, and P. (B) Stereo view of ARF7PB1 pentamer topology suggests formation of a curved helix multimer. The N-terminal residue of each chain is shown as a space-filling model.


TIn plants, the AUXIN RESPONSE FACTOR (ARF) transcription factor family regulates gene expression in response to auxin. In the absence of auxin, ARF transcription factors are repressed by interaction with AUXIN/INDOLE 3-ACETIC ACID (Aux/IAA) proteins. Although the C termini of ARF and Aux/IAA proteins facilitate their homo- and heterooligomerization, the molecular basis for this interaction remained undefined. The crystal structure of the C-terminal interaction domain of Arabidopsis ARF7 reveals a Phox and Bem1p (PB1) domain that provides both positive and negative electrostatic interfaces for directional protein interaction. Mutation of interface residues in the ARF7 PB1 domain yields monomeric protein and abolishes interaction with both itself and IAA17. Expression of a stabilized Aux/IAA protein (i.e., IAA16) bearing PB1 mutations in Arabidopsis suggests a multimerization requirement for ARF protein repression, leading to a refined auxin-signaling model.
