Subunit of: ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase 2

Synonyms: RDPR-II

Subunit composition of ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase 2 = [(NrdE)2][(NrdF)2]
         ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase 2, α subunit dimer = (NrdE)2
         ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase 2, β subunit dimer = (NrdF)2

Summary:
The NrdE and NrdF proteins constitute a second class I ribonucleotide reductase (RDPR-II) in E. coli, converting nucleoside 5'-diphosphates to deoxynucleoside 5'-diphosphates. The enzyme belongs to the class Ib ribonucleotide reductases that are active under aerobic conditions. Recently, it was shown that RDPR-II is active under conditions of iron starvation, when the housekeeping enzyme RDPR-I (NrdAB) is not active [Martin11a].

The catalytic mechanism involves a tyrosyl radical at the active site that inititates ribonucleotide reduction. The nature of the metal ion cofactor for NrdF has been controversial, but recent results show that the MnIII2-Y· form is the active form of NrdF [Cotruvo11, Martin11a] and is generated from two HO2- anions supplied by NrdI [Cotruvo10]. Crystal structures of MnII2-NrdF with reduced or oxidized NrdI show a channel connecting the flavin cofactor of NrdI to the NrdF active site [Boal10]. The glutaredoxin-like protein NrdH apparently replaces thioredoxin as the electron donor for ribonucleotide reduction [Gon06].

RDPR-II is an aerobic enzyme that is not essential for growth [Jordan96]. It cannot support aerobic or microaerophilic growth in an nrdAB deletion mutant. However, overexpression of nrdHIEF can rescue the growth defect of the nrdAB mutant [Gon06].

Expression of the nrdHIEF operon is increased by hydroxyurea [Jordan96] and oxidative stress [MonjeCasas01, Martin11a]. Expression is highest in minimal medium and in early log phase growth in complex medium; deletion of Trx1 and Grx1 (trxA- grxA-) increases expression more than 100-fold [MonjeCasas01]. nrdHIEF belongs to the Fur regulon [Vassinova00, Martin11a]. An nrdEF mutant is viable under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions [Jordan96].
