    Peptidomimetic inhibitors of N-myristoyltransferase from human malaria and leishmaniasis parasites

    , Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry, Vol: 12, Pages: 8132-8137, ISSN: 1477-0539

    N-Myristoyltransferase (NMT) has been shown to be essential in Leishmania and subsequently validated as a drug target in Plasmodium. Herein, we discuss the use of antifungal NMT inhibitors as a basis for inhibitor development resulting in the first sub-micromolar peptidomimetic inhibitors of Plasmodium and Leishmania NMTs. High-resolution structures of these inhibitors with Plasmodium and Leishmania NMTs permit a comparative analysis of binding modes, and provide the first crystal structure evidence for a ternary NMT-Coenzyme A/myristoylated peptide product complex.

    Global profiling of co- and post-translationally N-myristoylated proteomes in human cells

    , Nature Communications, Vol: 5, Pages: 1-13, ISSN: 2041-1723

    Protein N-myristoylation is a ubiquitous co- and post-translational modification that has been implicated in the development and progression of a range of human diseases. Here, we report the global N-myristoylated proteome in human cells determined using quantitative chemical proteomics combined with potent and specific human N-myristoyltransferase (NMT) inhibition. Global quantification of N-myristoylation during normal growth or apoptosis allowed the identification of >100 N-myristoylated proteins, >95% of which are identified for the first time at endogenous levels. Furthermore, quantitative dose response for inhibition of N-myristoylation is determined for >70 substrates simultaneously across the proteome. Small-molecule inhibition through a conserved substrate-binding pocket is also demonstrated by solving the crystal structures of inhibitor-bound NMT1 and NMT2. The presented data substantially expand the known repertoire of co- and post-translational N-myristoylation in addition to validating tools for the pharmacological inhibition of NMT in living cells.

    New chemical probes targeting cholesterylation of Sonic Hedgehog in human cells and zebrafish

    , Chemical Science, Vol: 5, Pages: 4249-4259, ISSN: 2041-6520

    Sonic Hedgehog protein (Shh) is a morphogen molecule important in embryonic development and in theprogression of many cancer types in which it is aberrantly overexpressed. Fully mature Shh requiresattachment of cholesterol and palmitic acid to its C- and N-termini, respectively. The study of lipidatedShh has been challenging due to the limited array of tools available, and the roles of theseposttranslational modifications are poorly understood. Herein, we describe the development andvalidation of optimised alkynyl sterol probes that efficiently tag Shh cholesterylation and enable itsvisualisation and analysis through bioorthogonal ligation to reporters. An optimised probe was shown tobe an excellent cholesterol biomimetic in the context of Shh, enabling appropriate release of tagged Shhfrom signalling cells, formation of multimeric transport complexes and signalling. We have used thisprobe to determine the size of transport complexes of lipidated Shh in culture medium and expressionlevels of endogenous lipidated Shh in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma cell lines through quantitativechemical proteomics, as well as direct visualisation of the probe by fluorescence microscopy anddetection of cholesterylated Hedgehog protein in developing zebrafish embryos. These sterol probesprovide a set of novel and well-validated tools that can be used to investigate the role of lipidation onactivity of Shh, and potentially other members of the Hedgehog protein family

    Genome-wide Functional Analysis of Plasmodium Protein Phosphatases Reveals Key Regulators of Parasite Development and Differentiation

    , Cell Host & Microbe, Vol: 16, Pages: 128-140, ISSN: 1934-6069

    Reversible protein phosphorylation regulated by kinasesand phosphatases controls many cellular processes.Although essential functions for the malariaparasite kinome have been reported, the roles ofmost protein phosphatases (PPs) during Plasmodiumdevelopment are unknown. We report a functionalanalysis of the Plasmodium berghei protein phosphatome,which exhibits high conservation with theP. falciparum phosphatome and comprises 30 predictedPPs with differential and distinct expressionpatterns during various stages of the life cycle. Genedisruption analysis of P. berghei PPs reveals thathalf of the genes are likely essential for asexualblood stage development, whereas six are requiredfor sexual development/sporogony in mosquitoes.Phenotypic screening coupled with transcriptomesequencing unveiled morphological changes andaltered gene expression in deletion mutants of twoN-myristoylated PPs. These findings provide systematicfunctional analyses of PPs in Plasmodium, identifyhow phosphatases regulate parasite developmentand differentiation, and can inform the identification ofdrug targets for malaria.
