Preprint
Dengue virus infection can cause dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). Dengue NS1 is multifunctional: the intracellular dimeric NS1 (iNS1) forms part of the viral replication complex, the extracellular multi-oligomeric secreted NS1 (sNS1) is a major factor contributing to DHF. The structure of the iNS1 is well studied but not sNS1. Here we show the tetra...

The four serotypes of the mature dengue virus can display different morphologies, including the compact spherical, the bumpy spherical and the non-spherical clubshape morphologies. In addition, the maturation process of dengue virus is inefficient and therefore some partially immature dengue virus particles have been observed and they are infectiou...

Different strains within a dengue serotype (DENV1-4) can have smooth, or “bumpy” surface morphologies with different antigenic characteristics at average body temperature (37°C). We determined the neutralizing properties of a serotype cross-reactive human monoclonal antibody (HMAb) 1C19 for strains with differing morphologies within the DENV1 and D...

Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an emerging viral pathogen that causes both acute and chronic debilitating arthritis. Here, we describe the functional and structural basis as to how two anti-CHIKV monoclonal antibodies, CHK-124 and CHK-263, potently inhibit CHIKV infection in vitro and in vivo. Our in vitro studies show that CHK-124 and CHK-263 block...

Structures of flavivirus (dengue virus and Zika virus) particles are known to near-atomic resolution and show detailed structure and arrangement of their surface proteins (E and prM in immature virus or M in mature virus). By contrast, the arrangement of the capsid proteins:RNA complex, which forms the core of the particle, is poorly understood, li...

The ability of DENV2 to display different morphologies (hence different antigenic properties) complicates vaccine and therapeutics development. Previous studies showed most strains of laboratory adapted DENV2 particles changed from smooth to “bumpy” surfaced morphology when the temperature is switched from 29°C at 37°C. Here we identified five enve...
Article
Dengue virus (DENV) particles are released from cells in different maturation states. Fully immature DENV (immDENV) is generally non-infectious, but can become infectious when complexed with anti-precursor membrane (prM) protein antibodies. It is unknown how anti-prM antibody-coated particles can undergo membrane fusion since the prM caps the envel...

Graphical Abstract Highlights d ZKA190 is a potent ZIKV neutralizing mAb targeting DIII of the E protein d ZKA190 binds to all 180 E proteins on ZIKV virion distorting quaternary structure d Zika virus escapes from ZKA190 as well as DII-specific neutralizing antibodies d A ZKA190-based DII-DIII bispecific antibody prevents ZIKV escape and protects...
Article
Zika virus (ZIKV), a mosquito-borne flavivirus, causes devastating congenital birth defects. We isolated a human monoclonal antibody (mAb), ZKA190, that potently cross-neutralizes multi-lineage ZIKV strains. ZKA190 is highly effective in vivo in preventing morbidity and mortality of ZIKV-infected mice. NMR and cryo-electron microscopy show its bind...
Article
Zika virus (ZIKV), formerly a neglected pathogen, has recently been associated with microcephaly in fetuses, and with Guillian-Barré syndrome in adults. Here we present the 3.7 Å resolution cryo-electron microscopy structure of ZIKV, and show that the overall architecture of the virus is similar to that of other flaviviruses. Sequence and structura...
Article
Dengue virus, a positive-sense RNA virus, is one of the major human pathogens transmitted by mosquitoes. However, no fully effective licensed dengue vaccines or therapeutics are currently available. Several potent neutralizing antibodies against DENV have been isolated from mice and humans, and the characterization of their properties by biochemica...

There are four closely-related dengue virus (DENV) serotypes. Infection with one serotype generates antibodies that may cross-react and enhance infection with other serotypes in a secondary infection. We demonstrated that DENV serotype 2 (DENV2)-specific human monoclonal antibody (HMAb) 2D22 is therapeutic in a mouse model of antibody-enhanced seve...

Dengue virus (DENV) infects ~400 million people annually. There is no licensed vaccine or therapeutic drug. Only a small fraction of the total DENV-specific antibodies in a naturally occurring dengue infection consists of highly neutralizing antibodies. Here we show that the DENV-specific human monoclonal antibody 5J7 is exceptionally potent, neutr...

Dengue virus (DENV), which consists of four serotypes (DENV1-4), infects over 400 million people annually. Previous studies have indicated most human monoclonal antibodies (HMAbs) from dengue patients are cross-reactive and poorly neutralizing. Rare neutralizing HMAbs are usually serotype-specific and bind to quaternary structure-dependent epitopes...

Previous binding studies of antibodies that recognized a partially or fully hidden epitope suggest that insect cell-derived dengue virus undergoes structural changes at an elevated temperature. This was confirmed by our cryo-electron microscopy images of dengue virus incubated at 37°C, where viruses change their surface from smooth to rough. Here w...

PadR-like transcriptional regulators form a structurally-related family of proteins that control the expression of genes associated with detoxification, virulence and multi-drug resistance in bacteria. Only a few members of this family have been studied by genetic, biochemical and biophysical methods, and their structure/function relationships are...
Article
The lytic transglycosylase MltE from Escherichia coli is a periplasmic, outer membrane-attached enzyme that cleaves the β-1,4-glycosidic bonds between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetylglucosamine residues in the cell wall peptidoglycan, producing 1,6-anhydromuropeptides. Here we report three crystal structures of MltE: in a substrate-free state, in...

Background: Dengue virus surface proteins, envelope (E) and pre-membrane (prM), undergo rearrangement during the maturation process at acidic condition. Results: prM-stem region binds tighter to both E protein and lipid membrane when environment becomes acidic. Conclusion: At acidic condition, E proteins are attracted to the membrane-associate...
Article
Members of the aspartase/fumarase superfamily share a common tertiary and quaternary fold, as well as a similar active site architecture; the superfamily includes aspartase, fumarase, argininosuccinate lyase, adenylosuccinate lyase, δ-crystallin, and 3-carboxy-cis,cis-muconate lactonizing enzyme (CMLE). These enzymes all process succinyl-containing...

Aspartate ammonia lyases (or aspartases) catalyze the reversible deamination of L-aspartate into fumarate and ammonia. The lack of crystal structures of complexes with substrate, product, or substrate analogues so far precluded determination of their precise mechanism of catalysis. Here, we report crystal structures of AspB, the aspartase from Baci...

Glucoamylase from the yeast Saccharomycopsis fibuligera R64 (GLL1) has successfully been purified and characterized. The molecular mass of the enzyme was 56,583 Da as determined by mass spectrometry. The purified enzyme demonstrated optimum activity in the pH range of 5.6–6.4 and at 50°C. The activity of the enzyme was inhibited by acarbose with th...

beta-1,3-Glucanase F (BglF) from alkaliphilic Nocardiopsis sp. F96 is a single domain enzyme composed of only a catalytic domain. Chimeric BglFs with some carbohydrate-binding domains were constructed and characterized. By connecting the C-terminal additional domain of beta-1,3-glucanase H from Bacillus circulans IAM1165 and the chitin-binding doma...

Endo-1,3-beta-glucanase, an enzyme that hydrolyzes the 1,3-beta-glycosyl linkages of beta-glucan, belongs to the family 16 glycosyl hydrolases, which are widely distributed among bacteria, fungi and higher plants. Crystals of a family 16 endo-1,3-beta-glucanase from the alkaliphilic Nocardiopsis sp. strain F96 were obtained by the hanging-drop vapo...
