Characterization of the enzymatic activity of Clostridium perfringens TpeL

Abstract : TpeL is a toxin produced by Clostridium perfringens which belongs to the large clostridial glucosylating toxin family. It was shown that TpeL modifies Ras using UDP-glucose or UDP-N-acetylglucosamine as cosubstrates (Guttenberg et al., 2012; Nagahama et al., 2011). We confirmed that TpeL preferentially glucosaminates the three isoforms of Ras (cH-Ras, N-Ras, and K-Ras) from UDP-N-acetylglucosamine and to a lower extent Rap1a and R-Ras3, and very weakly Rac1. In contrast to previous report, we observed that Ral was not a substrate of TpeL. In addition, we confirmed by in vitro glucosylation and mass spectrometry that TpeL modifies cH-Ras at Thr35.
