Regulation summary diagram for hypA

Component of: HypA-HypB heterodimer (summary available)

HypA and its homolog, HybF, are involved in the maturation of hydrogenase isozymes. A mutation in hypA almost completely abolishes hydrogenase 3 activity [Jacobi92]. HypA is specifically involved in hydrogenase 3 maturation, while HybF is involved in the maturation of hydrogenase 1 and 2; HypA and HybF can only partially substitute for each other [Hube02]. The presence of high levels of nickel can phenotypically rescue hypA and hybF mutants and a triple hypA hypB hybF mutant to a low level [Hube02, Blokesch04].

HypA has both a nanomolar-affinity Zn2+ binding site and a micromolar-affinity Ni2+ binding site. The Zn2+ binding site appears to play a structural role; Zn2+ content modulates oligomeric complex formation [Atanassova05].

Interactions of HypA with other proteins have been shown to be important for hydrogenase 3 maturation. HypA and HypB, another accessory protein for hydrogenase maturation, interact directly [Atanassova05, Chan12], and HypA by itself can interact with the large subunit of hydrogenase 3, HycE. HypA may thus act as a scaffold for assembly of HypB and SlyD, the proteins responsible for Ni2+ insertion to [NiFe] hydrogenase 3 [Chan11].
