Zinc, a novel structural element found in the family of bacterial adenylate kinases

Abstract : The adk gene from Bacillus stearothermophilus was cloned and overexpressed in Escherichia coli under the control of the lac promoter. The primary structure of B. stearothermophilus adenylate kinase exhibited 76% identity with the enzyme from Bacillus subtilis, 60% identity with the enzyme from Lactococcus lactis, and 42% identity with the enzyme from E. coli. The most striking property of the adenylate kinase from B. stearothermophilus is the presence of a structural zinc atom bound to four cysteines in a zinc finger-like fashion
