Consequently, the intracellular vestibule to the metal-binding site is highly constricted yet there is no aqueous pathway to the binding site from the external side Figure 2B. Structural alignments with the inward-open Staphylococcus capitis Sca Nramp Ehrnstorfer et al. A Updated DraNramp Patch mutant structure in an inward-open apo state with a wide intracellular aqueous vestibule red mesh Bozzi et al. All structures are viewed from within the membrane.
D The complete Nramp transport cycle likely consists of at least six distinct conformational states. Including the structures of S. GW superimposes best with the outward-open EcoNramp, validating our mutagenesis strategy to obtain an outward-open conformation. G45R superimposes better with the inward-open Patch mutant than outward-open GW, suggesting it represents an inward-occluded conformation. These structures superimpose well except for TM1a. The most significant rearrangements involve TMs 1b, 4, 5, 6a, and These significant displacements from the inward-occluded state G45R to the outward-open state GW are highlighted with red arrows.
See also Figure 2—figure supplements 1 and 2. Based on overall superpositions of the three DraNramp structures, TMs 1, 4, 5, 6, and 10 show the largest displacements to switch metal-binding site accessibility Figure 2F—I. This video cannot be played in place because your browser does support HTML5 video. You may still download the video for offline viewing. Morph of the structure of DraNramp based on a global superimposition of the three captured conformational states. TMs 1, 5, 6, and 10 are colored gold, TMs 3, 4, 8, and 9 blue, and TMs 2, 7, and 11 gray, viewed in the membrane plane and the intracellular face pointing down.
The morph starts from the GW outward-facing conformation, transitions to the G45R occluded state, then to the Patch mutant inward-open state. The view then shifts to the intracellular face, followed by the external face, continuing to alternate back and forth through these three conformations. To more objectively compare the intramolecular rearrangements that occur during the transport cycle, we calculated difference distance matrices Richards and Kundrot, , averaged by TM, for each pair of structures Figure 3.
These matrices confirm that TMs 1, 4, 5, 6, and 10 undergo the most significant displacements relative to the rest of the protein between the different structures. To compare two structures, we generated distance difference matrices Richards and Kundrot, , subtracting one distance matrix from the other. To simplify the data and focus on relative movements between helices, we then calculated the root-mean-squared deviations of submatrices, grouping residues within each helical segment. We used a total of 14 segments top right , breaking TMs 1, 6, and 10 into two separate segments before and after their helix-breaking elements.
Pairs of helices that remain stationary relative to each other have RMSD values close to 0 indicated by darker colors. In contrast, pairs of helices that rearrange significantly relative to each other have larger magnitude values indicated by lighter coloring in the heat map.
Glassy Metals I
These matrices show that A TMs 4, 5, 6a, and 10a undergo the greatest displacement relative both to the rest of the protein and to each other in the conformational change from inward-occluded to outward-open. B In contrast, the conformational change from inward-open to inward-occluded consists primarily of the large displacement of TM1a, with the rest of the protein remaining mainly stationary. C The comparison of the outward-open and inward-open states is essentially a sum of the two previous comparisons, with the large TM1a displacement added to the significant movements of TMs 4, 5, 6a, and 10a.
We used these two canonical motifs to generate an alignment of Nramp sequences Figure 2—source data 1 and calculate the conservation of other important residues Figure 2—figure supplement 1C. The TM6 unwound region is extended in the outward-open state, while TM10 bends more dramatically at P in the inward-oriented states to close outside access to the metal-binding site. For clarity, TMs 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9 are omitted in panels A-C. E—F Plots of initial rates vs. See also Figure 4—figure supplement 1. The inward-open ScaNramp structure revealed a metal-binding site consisting of three conserved sidechains corresponding to D56, N59, and M in DraNramp, and a backbone carbonyl of A Figure 4B Ehrnstorfer et al.
The increased unwinding of TM6a displaces the A carbonyl too far 6. Interestingly, A53 and A are at analogous positions within the two inverted repeats of the LeuT fold. Two waters 2. An ordered water network expands into the external vestibule as part of the extended metal coordination sphere Figure 4—figure supplement 1A. A water is also tethered to the conserved H directly below the metal-binding M, perhaps poised to hydrate the cation upon conformational change. The inward-occluded G45R binding site contains no metal. The A53 carbonyl is farther from the other metal-binding residues than the A carbonyl Figure 4C.
This is consistent with a model in which Nramp metal transport involves a switch of ligands, perhaps with the A53 and A carbonyls both coordinating the metal substrate in an as-yet-uncaptured intermediate state. While Q does not bind the metal substrate in either outward DraNramp 7. Indeed, two independent molecular dynamics MD simulations of the inward-open ScaNramp showed a metal interaction with the Q oxygen Bozzi et al. These results suggest that Nramp metal and proton transport can proceed via separate routes, with proton transport requiring only that the protein sample the outward-open state.
Traces are representative of four experiments. D Schematic for in vitro cysteine modification of A53C inside accessible and A61C outside accessible. Adding ionomycin allows divalent cation entry to achieve maximum signal. Traces are representative of three experiments. See also Figure 5—figure supplements 1 , 2 and 3. To test this new hypothesis, we reconstituted the A53C and A61C mutants, with single cysteines located just below or above the metal-binding site respectively Figure 5—figure supplement 1D. Charged, and thus membrane-impermeable, MTSET nearly eliminated metal transport by A61C, while uncharged NEM or MTSEA moderately impaired or did not affect transport, respectively Figure 5E and Figure 5—figure supplement 1E , a result consistent with our previous in vivo findings that adding steric bulk, but not formal charge, is tolerated at this position Bozzi et al.

These findings show that essentially all activity in proteoliposomes comes from outside-out DraNramp. MTSET, which should inhibit any inside-out A53C, did not affect transport Figure 5G and Figure 5—figure supplement 1F , indicating that inside-out transporters contribute negligibly to the total activity in this assay.
Consistently, while MTSET treatment spares inside-out A61C from labeling, it nevertheless nearly eliminated metal transport Figure 5E and Figure 5—figure supplement 1E , further supporting the assertion that outside-out WT-like transporters provided most of the detected transport activity.
To confirm that a mix of inside-out and outside-out transporters were indeed present in proteoliposomes, we assessed the susceptibility of DraNramp to thrombin cleavage at a naturally-occurring site Gallwitz et al. In addition, metal transport through DraNramp is much more efficient in the outside-to-inside direction than in the inside-to-outside direction under the physiological-like conditions set up in our in vitro assay.
Our in vitro results suggested that proton transport occurs via a pathway separate from the intracellular metal-release vestibule, which remains closed to bulk solvent in the proton-transporting GW mutant. Below the metal-binding site begins a network of highly-conserved hydrophilic residues, including at least seven potentially protonatable sidechains, that leads from the metal-binding D56 through a tight corridor between TMs 3, 4, 8, and 9 to the cytoplasm Figure 6A—C.
In contrast to the external and intracellular vestibules proposed as metal entrance and release pathways, the helices and residues within this polar network undergo little rearrangement between the three DraNramp structures, except the intracellular end of TM4 Figures 2F—I and 3. A View from an angle above the membrane looking down into the extracellular aqueous cavity in the outward-open GW structure. B Zoomed-in view with TM10 and TM11 omitted for clarity and C schematic showing a network of conserved protonatable residues that originates from the metal-binding site and extends into the cleft between TMs 3, 4, 8, and 9.
See also Figure 6—figure supplement 1. This network could provide the route for proton uniport in the outward-open conformation.
To assess whether these residues could be proton carriers, we calculated predicted pK a values for our outward-open and inward-occluded structures Figure 6D Dolinsky et al. Surprisingly, D56 is the only residue with a pK a in the ideal 6—7 range to facilitate proton exchange at a typical external pH. While E and H have separately been suggested as the Nramp proton-binding site Ehrnstorfer et al. In addition, previous studies showed the analogous E-to-Q mutant in EcoNramp maintained WT-like proton transport ability Ehrnstorfer et al.
Within the TM3-TM9 salt-bridge network, R and R are likely protonated and positively charged, while their respective partners E and D are likely deprotonated and negatively charged. The predicted pK a values of D and E indicate their amenability to protonation. First, removing either metal-binding residue N59 or M had little effect.
Outward-reporter A61C accessibility Figure 1C is consistent with each mutant sampling the outward-open state needed for proton transport Figure 5 , ruling out a conformation-locking explanation for the loss-of-function mutants. Starting from the outward-open state seen in our GW structure Figure 7A , left panel , metal binding and perhaps resulting proton entry into its release pathway may trigger bulk conformational rearrangement see below for details.
To close the external vestibule, TM6a, TM10, and to a lesser extent TM1b move closer to each other above their respective non-helical hinge regions, with the TM6a movement propagated through the TM linker to reorient TM5 and thus begin to open the inner gate. From this transient occluded conformation similar to our G45R structure Figure 7A , middle panel , additional movement of TM4-TM5 allows TM1a to bend upward to fully open the inner gate, enabling solvent access to and release of the metal, as the protein achieves a state similar to the Patch mutant DraNramp structure Figure 7A , right panel Bozzi et al.
TM6a and 10 bend inward to close the vestibule in the inward-occluded conformation. Finally, TM1a swings away from TM6b to open the intracellular vestibule into which the metal diffuses. B Superposition of outward- gold and inward-open teal conformations illustrate key movements by TMs 1, 5, 6, and C Overall DraNramp transport model under prevailing physiological conditions negative inside membrane potential, acidic-outside pH gradient : While metal transport requires complete conformational cycling, proton uniport occurs through the outward-open state.
Metal-stimulated proton transport may follow the same pathway as proton uniport. D Proton transport model: A proton transits the external vestibule to reach the binding site near the membrane center and initially binds to D Metal enters through the same passageway, ejecting the proton, which then passes to D, with H and E facilitating the transfer. The proton ultimately reaches the cytoplasm through the polar network between TMs 3, 4, 8, and 9, while the metal must await a bulk conformational change that opens a separate pathway between TMs 1a, 2, 5, 6b, 7, and 8.
Proton uniport follows the same route, with the DD transfer occurring at a slower rate without metal substrate.
E Model for metal coordination during the transport process: the metal initially binds in the outward-open state to D56, N59, M sidechains and the A53 carbonyl, shedding all but two water ligands. As the outward metal-permeation pathway closes, Q and the A carbonyl displace the waters so that the metal is fully coordinated by six amino acids in the inward-occluded state. As the inner gate opens, Q and the A53 carbonyl withdraw and are replaced by waters.
The metal is then released into the cytoplasmic aqueous vestibule. To facilitate the return to the outward-open state, Q and N59 donate hydrogen bonds to negatively-charged D56 in the inward-occluded return conformation seen in our G45R structure. Finally, as the transporter returns to an outward-open state, it may bind a proton in preparation for metal-binding. Our in vitro assays showed that while DraNramp metal transport requires sampling of both outward- and inward-open states, proton uniport occurs in sterically outward-locked constructs Figures 1 and 5.
In contrast, both protons and metal likely enter through the same aqueous pathway, as inward-locked proteins do not transport either substrate. This proton pathway is accessible in the outward-open state, thus enabling the well-documented proton uniport Chen et al. The proton uniport—common to the general Nramp family—that occurs under physiological conditions wastes electrochemical energy by dissipating the transmembrane proton gradient without contributing to metal uptake.
However, the precise order of events for proton and metal transport, including whether it is indeed a thermodynamically coupled symport mechanism, remains undetermined, and additional transport mechanisms are possible. DraNramp would thus reach a fully dehydrated metal-bound state not yet visualized but which may resemble our apo G45R inward-occluded structure Figure 7E.
Next, as the inner gate opens, the A53 carbonyl would exchange with a nearby water—such as the one bound to H in our GW structure—as would Q, to yield an inward-open metal-bound state similar to the ScaNramp structure Figures 4B and 7E Ehrnstorfer et al. To return to the outward-open state, the transporter must pass through an apo-occluded state as seen in the G45R structure, in which the N59 and Q sidechains reorient to stabilize D56 in the absence of the divalent cation carried during the outward-to-inward transition Figures 4C and 7E.
As the transporter reaches the outward-open state seen in EcoNramp Ehrnstorfer et al. The mechanism described above for the DraNramp transport cycle—developed from structures of the same Nramp homolog in three distinct conformations and supported by metal and proton transport data—differs significantly from those previously observed for other LeuT-fold transporters. Furthermore, the mobile helices do not move as rigid bodies, as conserved helix-breaking motifs free TMs 1a, 6a, and the top of TM10 to move independent of TMs 1b, 6b and the bottom of TM In contrast, the fully-helical TM5 wholly reorients, and may thus coordinate the opening and closing of the inner and outer gates, connecting TMs 1a, 4, and 6b with TM6a Figures 2 and 7A—B.
Not surprisingly, the DraNramp conformational changes are most similar to those predicted by comparing structures of two other bacterial Nramp homologs in complementary conformations Ehrnstorfer et al. Whereas the distinct conformational changes of DraNramp demonstrate the diverse repertoire of dynamics available to the LeuT-fold family, the most striking mechanistic differences between DraNramp and other structurally-studied LeuT-fold transporters concern the substrate transport routes.
This hypothetical evolutionary switch has precedent within the LeuT-fold family, as the proton-coupled amino acid transporter ApcT analogously uses a conserved TM5 lysine K , whose sidechain protrudes into the Na2 location, as its primary proton-binding site Shaffer et al. LeuT and other bacterial homologs also antiport a proton as they return to an outward-open state Kantcheva et al.
Available structures and MD simulations suggest that proton symport in ApcT and antiport in LeuT likely occur through the bulk opening and closing of the same permeation pathways used by the primary substrates amino acids Krishnamurthy and Gouaux, ; Malinauskaite et al. We propose a proton route from D56 through D and into a conserved salt-bridge network between TMs 3, 4, 8, and 9 Figure 6 , which remain relatively stationary during the conformational change process Figure 2.
Indeed, evolutionary analysis reveals that this polar network is unique to the Nramp clade of the LeuT-family Cellier, ; this region is mainly hydrophobic in both LeuT and ApcT Shaffer et al. A parallel transport pathway for protons could alleviate the electrostatic problem of simultaneously stabilizing three added positive charges the proton and divalent metal cation in close proximity throughout a conformational change process, although other unrelated transporters are known to accommodate multiple positive charges within their binding sites during the transport cycle Vandenberg and Ryan, It remains to be demonstrated whether the observed Nramp metal and proton transport truly constitute symport.
This new model for Nramp transport therefore illustrates the evolutionary flexibility and adaptability of the shared LeuT fold. All constructs were full-length, except the GW crystallization construct was N-terminally truncated to residue 35; this deletion did not affect metal transport Bozzi et al. Mutations were made using the Quikchange mutagenesis protocol Stratagene and confirmed by DNA sequencing.
