Reconstitution and resonance assignments of yeast OST subunit Ost4 and its critical mutant Ost4V23D in liposomes by solid-state NMR

N-linked glycosylation is an essential and highly conserved co- and post-translational protein modification in all domains of life. In humans, genetic defects in N-linked glycosylation pathways result in metabolic diseases collectively called Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation. […] In yeast, Ost4 is the smallest of nine subunits and bridges the interaction of the catalytic subunit, Stt3, with Ost3 (or its homolog, Ost6). Mutations of any C-terminal hydrophobic residues in Ost4 to a charged residue destabilizes the enzyme and negatively impacts its function. Specifically, the V23D mutation results in a temperature-sensitive phenotype in yeast. Here, we report the reconstitution of both purified recombinant Ost4 and Ost4V23D each in a POPC/POPE lipid bilayer and their resonance assignments using heteronuclear 2D and 3D solid-state NMR with magic-angle spinning.
