The binding of tungstate to the Yop51 PTPase from Yersinia induces a loop conformational change that moving an aspartic acid into the active site. Small perturbations occuring in the active site residues, especially around Arg 409, trigger the loop to close. Loop closure significantly decreases the solvent accessibility of the bound oxyanion and could effectively shield catalytic intermediates from phosphate acceptors other than water.
The loop moves up to 6 A and positions Asp 356 carboxylate within 3.8 A of the tungstate oxygen analogous to the Oeta phosphoester oxygen of a phosphotyrosine substrate.
The conformational change between the unliganded and oxyanion-bound structures probably originates from small perturbations immediately adjacent to the ligand binding site.
The two core structures superimpose with an overall RMSD of 0.83 A for all paired Calphas, but the Calpha RMSD for residues 351-359 is 3.6 A. The loop moves up to 6 A to close over the active site.
