J Med Chem 2021 Aug 2. Epub 2021 Aug 2.

Institute of Biostructures and Bioimaging (IBB)-CNR, Via Mezzocannone, 16, 80134 Napoli, Italy.

Blocking the interaction between the apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF) and cyclophilin A (CypA) by the AIF fragment AIF(370-394) is protective against glutamate-induced neuronal cell death and brain injury in mice. Starting from AIF(370-394), we report the generation of the disulfide-bridged and shorter variant AIF(381-389) and its structural characterization by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in the free and CypA-bound state. AIF(381-389) in both the free and bound states assumes a β-hairpin conformation similar to that of the fragment in the AIF protein and shows a highly reduced conformational flexibility. Read More

Maedi-visna virus Vif protein uses motifs distinct from HIV-1 Vif to bind zinc and the cofactor required for A3 degradation.

J Biol Chem 2021 Jan-Jun;296:100045. Epub 2020 Nov 24.

Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA. Electronic address:

The mammalian apolipoprotein B mRNA-editing enzyme catalytic polypeptide-like 3 (APOBEC3 or A3) family of cytidine deaminases restrict viral infections by mutating viral DNA and impeding reverse transcription. To overcome this antiviral activity, most lentiviruses express a viral accessory protein called the virion infectivity factor (Vif), which recruits A3 proteins to cullin-RING E3 ubiquitin ligases such as cullin-5 (Cul5) for ubiquitylation and subsequent proteasomal degradation. Although Vif proteins from primate lentiviruses such as HIV-1 utilize the transcription factor core-binding factor subunit beta as a noncanonical cofactor to stabilize the complex, the maedi-visna virus (MVV) Vif hijacks cyclophilin A (CypA) instead.
