Abstract

S100A11 protein is a member of the S100 family containing two EF-hand motifs. It undergoes phophorylation on residue T10 after cell stimulation such as an increase in Ca2+ concentration. Phosphorylated S100A11 can be recognized by its target protein, nucleolin. Although S100A11 is initially expressed in the cytoplasm, it is transported to the nucleus by the action of nucleolin. In the nucleus, S100A11 suppresses the growth of keratinocytes through p21CIP1/WAF1 activation and induces cell differentiation. Interestingly, the N-terminal fragment of S100A11 has the same activity as the full-length protein; i.e. it is phosphorylated in vivo and binds to nucleolin. In addition, this fragment leads to the arrest of cultured keratinocyte growth. We examined the solution structure of this fragment peptide and explored its structural properties before and after phosphorylation. In a trifluoroethanol solution, the peptide adopts the α-helical structure just as the corresponding region of the full-length S100A11. Phosphorylation induces a disruption of the N-capping conformation of the α-helix, and has a tendency to perturb its surrounding structure. Therefore, the phosphorylated threonine lies in the N-terminal edge of the α-helix. This local structural change can reasonably explain why the phosphorylation of a residue that is initially buried in the interior of protein allows it to be recognized by the binding partner.
