Caractérisation structurale et fonctionnelle des phospholipases D

Abstract : Phospholipases D (PLD, EC are ubiquitary enzymes found in prokaryotes (bacteria) as well as in eukaryotes (plant, animals and fungi). PLD catalyzes the hydrolysis of the distal phosphoester bound of phospholipids thus forming phosphatidic acid, an important cell signaling messenger implicated in numerous pathways such as cell proliferation, vesicular formation and trafficking but also transcription and cell survival. PLDs belong to a superfamily of protein which share a common catalytic site called “HKD” for HXKX4D, X is a random amino acid, containing H (Histidyl), K (lysyl) and D (aspartyl) residues. This consensus sequence is duplicated in most of the PLD superfamily members. The study of plant PLD is the best way to understand this family of proteins as they are the sole eukaryotic PLDs to be purified to homogeneity so far. This work provides a functional characterization of the most conserved residues in plant PLDs leading to a structural characterization with the crystallization of this enzyme. A second part of this work proposes the modulation of the enzyme hydrolysis activity by studying the minimal domain necessary for the activity and post-translational maturation undergone by plant PLDs. Also, we look for a new specific inhibitory molecule. Finally, we propose the cloning of a new plant PLD and the development of a new way to detect in vivo PLD activity
