Phosphocarrier HPr protein is a small cytoplasmic protein that is a component of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS).[2][3]

The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS) is a major carbohydrate transport system in bacteria. The PTS catalyses the phosphorylation of sugar substrates during their translocation across the cell membrane. The mechanism involves the transfer of a phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) via enzyme I (EI) to enzyme II (EII) of the PTS system, which in turn transfers it to a phosphocarrier protein (HPr).[4][5] In some bacteria HPr is a domain in a larger protein that includes an EIII(Fru) (IIA) domain and in some cases also an EI domain.

There is a conserved histidine in the N-terminus of HPr, which serves as an acceptor for the phosphoryl group of EI. In the central part of HPr there is a conserved serine which, in Gram-positive bacteria only, is phosphorylated by an ATP-dependent protein kinase, a process which probably plays a regulatory role in sugar transport.

The histidine-containing phosphocarrier protein (HPr) is a central component of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS), which transfers metabolic carbohydrates across the cell membrane in many bacterial species [PUBMED:8246840, PUBMED:2197982]. PTS catalyses the phosphorylation of incoming sugar substrates concomitant with their translocation across the cell membrane. The general mechanism of the PTS is as follows: a phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is transferred to Enzyme I (EI) of the PTS, which in turn transfers it to the phosphoryl carrier protein (HPr) [PUBMED:7853396, PUBMED:7704530]. Phospho-HPr then transfers the phosphoryl group to a sugar-specific permease complex (enzymes EII/EIII).

HPr [PUBMED:1549615, PUBMED:7686067] is a small cytoplasmic protein of 70 to 90 amino acid residues. In some bacteria, HPr is a domain in a larger protein that includes a EIII(Fru) (IIA) domain and in some cases also the EI domain. A conserved histidine in the N-terminal section of HPr serves as an acceptor for the phosphoryl group of EI. In the central part of HPr, there is a conserved serine which (in Gram-positive bacteria only) is phosphorylated by an ATP-dependent protein kinase; a process which probably play a regulatory role in sugar transport. The overall architecture of the HPr domain has been described as an open faced beta-sandwich in which a beta-sheet is packed against three alpha-helices. Regulatory phosphorylation at the conserved Ser residue does not appear to induce large structural changes to the HPr domain, in particular in the region of the active site [PUBMED:11054290, PUBMED:15713472].

Alignments

We store a range of different sequence alignments for families. As well as the seed alignment from which the family is built, we provide the full alignment, generated by searching the sequence database using the family HMM. We also generate alignments using four representative proteomes (RP) sets, the NCBI sequence database, and our metagenomics sequence database. More...

View options

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family. You can see a description of each above. You can view these alignments in various ways but please note that some types of alignment are never generated while others may not be available for all families, most commonly because the alignments are too large to handle.

Structures

For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the PTS-HPr domain has been found. There are 89 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein seqence.
