Functional effects of amino acid substitutions within the large binding pocket of the phosphotriesterase OpdA from Agrobacterium sp. P230
The phosphotriesterase OpdA from Agrobacterium sp. P230 has about 10-fold higher activity for dimethyl organophosphate (OP) insecticides, than its homologue from Flavobacterium sp. ATCC27551, organophosphate hydrolase (OPH). OpdA shows about 10% amino acid sequence divergence from OPH and also has a 20 residue C-terminal extension. Here we show that the difference in kinetics is largely explained by just two amino acid differences between the two proteins. A truncated form of OpdA demonstrated...[Show more]
