1H, 15N, 13C backbone resonance assignment of the C-terminal domain of enzyme I from Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis

Phosphoenolpyruvate binding to the C-terminal domain (EIC) of enzyme I of the bacterial phosphotransferase system (PTS) initiates a phosphorylation cascade that results in sugar translocation across the cell membrane and controls a large number of essential pathways in bacterial metabolism. EIC undergoes an expanded to compact conformational equilibrium that is regulated by ligand binding and determines the phosphorylation state of the overall PTS. Here, we report the backbone 1H, 15N and 13C chemical shift assignments of the 70 kDa EIC dimer from the thermophilic bacterium Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis. Assignments were obtained at 70 °C by heteronuclear multidimensional NMR spectroscopy. In total, 90% of all backbone resonances were assigned, with 264 out of a possible 299 residues assigned in the 1H–15N TROSY spectrum. The secondary structure predicted from the assigned backbone resonance using the program TALOS+ is in good agreement with the X-ray crystal structure of T. tengcongensis EIC. The reported assignments will allow detailed structural and thermodynamic investigations on the coupling between ligand binding and conformational dynamics in EIC.
