One touch is all it takes: the supramolecular interaction between ubiquitin and lanthanide complexes revisited by paramagnetic NMR and molecular dynamics

Abstract

The supramolecular interaction between lanthanide complexes and proteins is at the heart of numerous chemical and biological studies. Some of these complexes have demonstrated remarkable interaction properties with proteins or peptides in solution and in the crystalline state. Here we have used the paramagnetism of lanthanide ions to characterize the affinity of two lanthanide complexes for ubiquitin. As the interaction process is dynamic, the acquired NMR data only reflect the time average of the different steps. We have used molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to get a deeper insight into the detailed interaction scenario at the microsecond scale. This NMR/MD approach enabled us to establish that the tris-dipicolinate complex interacts specifically with arginines and lysines, while the crystallophore explores the protein surface through weak interactions with carboxylates. These observations shed new light on the dynamic interaction properties of these complexes, which will ultimately enable us to propose a crystallization mechanism.
