HUMAN INDUCIBLE NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE WITH INHIBITOR

Publication Abstract from PubMed

Crystal structures of human endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and human inducible NOS (iNOS) catalytic domains were solved in complex with the arginine substrate and an inhibitor S-ethylisothiourea (SEITU), respectively. The small molecules bind in a narrow cleft within the larger active-site cavity containing heme and tetrahydrobiopterin. Both are hydrogen-bonded to a conserved glutamate (eNOS E361, iNOS E377). The active-site residues of iNOS and eNOS are nearly identical. Nevertheless, structural comparisons provide a basis for design of isozyme-selective inhibitors. The high-resolution, refined structures of eNOS (2.4 A resolution) and iNOS (2.25 A resolution) reveal an unexpected structural zinc situated at the intermolecular interface and coordinated by four cysteines, two from each monomer.
