Abstract

L-Lysine α-oxidase (LysOX) from Trichoderma viride is a homodimeric 112 kDa flavoenzyme that catalyzes the oxidative deamination of L-lysine to form α-keto-ε-aminocaproate. LysOX severely inhibited growth of cancer cells but showed relatively low cytotoxicity for normal cells. We have determined the cDNA nucleotide sequence encoding LysOX from T. viride. The full-length cDNA consists of 2, 119bp and encodes a possible signal peptide (Met1-Arg77) and the mature protein (Ala78-Ile617). The LysOX gene have been cloned and heterologously expressed in Streptomyces lividans TK24 with the enzyme activity up to 9.8 U/ml. The enzymatic properties of the purified recombinant LysOX, such as substrate specificity and thermal stability, are same as those of native LysOX. The crystal structure of LysOX at 1.9 Å resolution revealed that the overall structure is similar to that of snake venom L-amino acid oxidase (LAAO), and the residues involved in the interaction with the amino or carboxy group of the substrate are structurally conserved. However, the entrance and the inner surface structures of the funnel to the active site, as well as the residues involved in the substrate side-chain recognition, are distinct from LAAOs. These structural differences well explain the unique substrate specificity of LysOX.
