Preliminary X-ray crystallographic and NMR studies on the exonuclease domain of the epsilon subunit of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase III.


The structured core of the N-terminal 3'-5' exonuclease domain of epsilon, the proofreading subunit of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase III, was defined by multidimensional NMR experiments with uniformly (15)N-labeled protein: it comprises residues between Ile-4 and Gln-181. A 185-residue fragment, termed epsilon(1-185), was crystallized by the hanging drop vapor diffusion method in the presence of thymidine-5'-monophosphate, a product inhibitor, and Mn(2+) at pH 5.8. The crystals are tetragonal, with typical dimensions 0.2 mm x 0.2 mm x 1.0 mm, grow over about 2 weeks at 4 degrees C, and diffract X-rays to 2.0 A. The space group was determined to be P4(n)2(1)2 (n = 0, 1, 2, 3), with unit cell dimensions a = 60.8 A, c = 111.4 A.
