Subunit of: holocytochrome c synthetase

Synonyms: cytochrome c heme lyase

Subunit composition of holocytochrome c synthetase = [CcmE][CcmF][CcmG][CcmH]
         membrane anchored periplasmic heme chaperone CcmE = CcmE (summary available)
         holocytochrome c synthetase - CcmF subunit = CcmF (summary available)
         holocytochrome c synthetase - thiol:disulfide oxidoreductase CcmG = CcmG (summary available)
         holocytochrome c synthetase - thiol:disulfide oxidoreductase CcmH = CcmH (summary available)

The CcmA-H proteins of E. coli K-12 function as a type 1 cytochrome c biogenesis system. In cytochrome c biogenesis, apocytochrome c is translocated across the cytoplasmic membrane into the oxidizing environment of the periplasm through the sec secretion system where it complexes with heme--also transported across the cytoplasmic membrane. An intramolecular disulfide bond in the apocyctochrome c must be reduced to the dithiol form in order for the covalent attachment of heme cofactor to occur; the iron of heme must also be reduced for thoiether bond formation. ccmE, ccmF, ccmG, and ccmH in Escherichia coli are members of an operon whose gene products (CcmA-H) have been shown to be cytoplasmic membrane proteins required for cytochrome c maturation. CcmE is the periplasmic heme chaperone that shuttles heme from the CcmABCD complex to the CcmFGH holocytochrome c synthetase. CcmF interacts with CcmE and CcmH in transferring heme from CcmE to apocytochromes c. CcmG and CcmH are thiol:disulfide oxidoreductase which form a periplasmic thiol reduction pathways to maintain apocytochromes c in the reduced dithiol form so that attachment of heme can occur.

Radiolabeling and spectroscopic analyses indicate that CcmE is a heme-binding protein, and site-directed mutagenesis showed that heme binds transiently to a conserved periplasmic histidine residue [Schulz98a]. The CcmE protein has a rigid β-barrel core with a hydrophobic surface for heme binding; a flexible α helical domain may function to protect the bound heme [Enggist02]. CcmF is an integral membrane protein; sequence analysis predicts 15 transmembrane domains (TMDs) [Rapp04]; however experimental results suggests the presence of 13 [RichardFogal09]. CcmF interacts directly with CcmE and CcmH, but not apocytochrome c [Ren02].

CcmG contains a hydrophobic N-terminal domain (residues 5-25) that anchors the protein to the inner membrane and a hydrophilic C-terminal domain that faces the periplasm [Missiakas97b, Fabianek98, Ouyang06]. The structure of CcmG in a mixed disulfide complex with DsbD has been determined to a resolution of 1.94 Å [Stirnimann05]. CcmG and CcmH contain the characteristic C-X-X-C motif of oxidoreductases; the two proteins contribute to a periplasmic thiol reduction pathway required for cytochrome c maturation [Fabianek98, Fabianek99, Edeling04]. CcmH is a membrane-bound protein; it has three domains - an N-terminal periplasmic domain containing the C-X-X-C motif, a transmembrane region and a C-terminal periplasmic domain - this latter domain is not required for CcmH function [Fabianek99]. The purified N-terminal domain (CcmH19-99) forms a homodimer but it is not clear if this is a physiologically relevant structure [Ahuja08a].

Purification and characterisation of the complexes of the Ccm pathway has helped elucidate the mechanisms of haem binding and trafficking [RichardFogal09]. Purified CcmF/H complex contains β-haem which is a stable component of the the CcmF protein. β-haem is bound to the CcmF/H complex with a stoichiometry of 1:1; His261 and His491, which reside in the transmembrane region of CcmF, function as β-heme ligands; β-haem of CcmF is reduced by ubiquinol-1 and dimethylquinone [RichardFogal09, San11]. The physiological role of CcmF may be to reduce the iron of holoCcmE (Fe3+ to Fe2+) before covalent bonding to apocytochromes c. Two conserved histidine residues in CcmF (His173 and His303) located in periplasmic domains flanking a tryptophan rich domain (the WWD domain), function as the ligands for heme in holoCcmE [San14]. HoloCcmE interacts directly with CcmF; holeCcmE must be released from CcmCD before interaction with CcmF; apoCcmE does not interact with CcmF [San14a]. Cytochrome c maturation has been engineered in the absence of CcmABCDE; the cytochrome c produced by CcmFH and CcmG is identical to that produced by the complete pathway [San14].

ccmA, ccmB, ccmC, ccmD, ccmE, ccmF, ccmG, and ccmH mutants are deficient in the ability to produce c-type cytochromes[ThonyMeyer95, Grove96, Grove96a, ThroneHolst97, Fabianek98, Tanapongpipat98, Schulz98a, Fabianek99, Reid01a, Enggist03, Edeling04, Ahuja06]. In the absence of CcmF, CcmG, or CcmH, heme is not released from CcmE to apocytochrome c, and heme-bound CcmE accumulates [Schulz98a, Reid98, Ren02]. Deletion mutation studies suggest that CcmF and CcmH form part of a heme lyase complex required to transfer heme from CcmE to the C-X-X-C-H heme-binding domains of apocytochromes c [Grove96a], and that only the N-terminal domain of CcmH containing a conserved C-X-X-C redox motif was required for cytochrome-c maturation [Fabianek99]. CcmH mutants could be complemented by addition of 2-mercapto-ethanesulfonic acid suggesting CcmH maintains the heme-binding sites of apocytochromes c in reduced form for heme ligation [Fabianek99]. CcmG mutants are unable to reduce the disulfide bonds of cytochromes c for attachment of heme [Fabianek98, Reid98, Ahuja06], but were not significantly affected in general redox reactions in the periplasm [Reid01a]. Purified CcmG mutants were used to determine the kinetics of disulfide exchange between CcmG and DsbD revealing electron transfer from DsbD to CcmG [Stirnimann05] rather than to CcmH or a CcmH-CcmG mixed disulfide as suggested by other experiments [Reid01a].

Expression of ccmABCDEFGH occurs from the napF promoter or from the ccmA promoter, and there is also a weak promoter within ccmD that enables transcription of downstream genes [Grove96, Tanapongpipat98].
