Abstract
The regulation of pyrimidine nucleotide synthesis has been proved to be controlled by a regulatory protein PyrR-mediated attenuation in the Gram-positive bacteria. After several bacterial genome sequencing projects, we have discovered the PyrR orthologues in the databases for Haemophilus influenzae and Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 genome sequences. To investigate whether these PyrR orthologue proteins regulate pyrimidine nucleotide synthesis as well as the cases of Bacillus, the PyrR regions of each strains were amplified by PCR and cloned with pUC19 or T-vector in Escherichia coli and with a shuttle vector pHPS9 for E. coli and B. subtilis. For the regulation test of the PyrR orthologues, the aspartate-transcarbamylase (ATCase) assay was carried out. From the results of the ATCase assay, it was confirmed that Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 could not restore by pyrimidines to a B. subtilis, PyrR but H. influenzae PyrR could. For purification of PyrR orthologue proteins, PyrR orthologue genes were cloned into the expression vector (pET14b). Over-expressed product of PyrR orthologue genes was purified and analyzed by the SDS-PAGE. The purified PyrR orthologue proteins from H. influenzae and Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 turned out to be molecular mass of 18 kDa and 21 kDa, respectively. The result of uracil phosphoribosyltransferase (UPRTase) assay with purified PyrR orthologue proteins showed that H. influenzae PyrR protein only has UPRTase activity. In addition, we could predict several regulatory mechanisms that PyrR orthologue proteins regulate pyrimidine de novo synthesis in bacteria, through phylogenetic analysis for PyrR orthologue protein sequences.
