Abstract: Cyclophilins are proteins that bind to cyclosporin A, an immunosuppressant drug usually administered during organ transplantation, against rejection. These proteins show peptidyl-prolyl isomerase activity, which catalyzes the isomerization of peptidyl-prolyl bonds from the trans form to cis form and facilitates protein folding. In plants, cyclophilins form a significant component of the chloroplast proteome. Cyclophilin 38 (CyP38) is a highly divergent multi-domain cyclophilin from Arabidopsis thaliana. The crystal structure of an intermediate form of AtCyP38 (residues 83-437) has been solved by Multi-wavelength Anomalous Dispersion (MAD) method at 2.46 Angstrom resolution. The structure has two distinct domains; a helical bundle and a cyclophilin domain. A short stretch at the N-terminus of the mature protein is expected to bind to a phosphatase and regulate the dephosphorylation process in the plant Photosystem II. The structure explains how an inactive AtCyP38 intermediate is protected during transportation and mature to form an active protein.
