  Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) neutralization can be effected by several classes of inhibitors that target distinct regions of gp41 that are accessible in the prehairpin intermediate (PHI) state and block the formation of the six-helix bundle (6-HB) conformation of gp41. The N-heptad repeat (N-HR) of gp41 is the site of action of two classes of inhibitors. One class binds to the trimeric N-HR coiled coil, while the other, exemplified by the peptide N36Mut(e,g), disrupts the trimer and sequesters the PHI through the formation of heterotrimers. We recently reported a neutralizing Fab (Fab 3674), selected from a nonimmune phage library, that binds to the trimeric N-HR coiled coil through an epitope that remains exposed in the 6-HB and is also present in heterotrimers of the N-HR and N36Mut(e,g) peptide. Here we show that N36Mut(e,g) prolongs the temporal window during which the virus is susceptible to neutralization by the bivalent Fab 3674 and that bivalent Fab 3674 and N36Mut(e,g) neutralize HXB2 and SF162 strains of HIV-1, as well as isolates of diverse primary B and C HIV-1 strains, synergistically in a Env-pseudotyped virus neutralization assay. N36Mut(e,g) also rescues neutralizing activity of Fab 3674 against resistant virus strains and renders a series of related nonneutralizing Fabs neutralizing. Moreover, N36Mut(e,g) exhibits the same effects on the broadly neutralizing 2F5 and 4E10 monoclonal antibodies directed against the membrane-proximal extended region of gp41. The mechanistic implications of these findings are discussed.

  Solution structures of complexes between the isolated A (IIAMan) and B (IIBMan) domains of the cytoplasmic component of the mannose transporter of Escherichia coli have been solved by NMR. The complex of wild-type IIAMan and IIBMan is a mixture of two species comprising a productive, phosphoryl transfer competent complex and a non-productive complex with the two active site histidines, His-10 of IIAMan and His-175 of IIBMan, separated by ∼25Å. Mutation of the active site histidine, His-10, of IIAMan to a glutamate, to mimic phosphorylation, results in the formation of a single productive complex. The apparent equilibrium dissociation constants for the binding of both wild-type and H10E IIAMan to IIBMan are approximately the same (KD ∼ 0.5 mM). The productive complex can readily accommodate a transition state involving a pentacoordinate phosphoryl group with trigonal bipyramidal geometry bonded to the Nε2 atom of His-10 of IIAMan and the Nδ1 atom of His-175 of IIBMan with negligible (<0.2Å) local backbone conformational changes in the immediate vicinity of the active site. The non-productive complex is related to the productive one by a ∼90° rotation and ∼37Å translation of IIBMan relative to IIAMan, leaving the active site His-175 of IIBMan fully exposed to solvent in the non-productive complex. The interaction surface on IIAMan for the non-productive complex comprises a subset of residues used in the productive complex and in both cases involves both subunits of IIAMan. The selection of the productive complex by IIAMan(H10E) can be attributed to neutralization of the positively charged Arg-172 of IIBMan at the center of the interface. The non-productive IIAMan-IIBMan complex may possibly be relevant to subsequent phosphoryl transfer from His-175 of IIBMan to the incoming sugar located on the transmembrane IICMan-IIDMan complex.
