Sample text

Binding of an allosteric ligand to an enzyme results in conformational changes that alter the structure of the active site in a way that either enhances or inhibits activity. A fascinating example is the control of ribonucleotide reductase activity by its deoxyribonucleotide products. Ribonucleotide reductases convert ribonucleotide diphosphates or triphosphates to the corresponding deoxyribonucleotides. Class I enzymes, found in eukaryotes, aerobic bacteria, and a few Archaea, use a tyrosyl radical to initiate catalysis.

Such sequence divergence occurs by neutral drift, a process by which mutations that do not affect the fitness of the organism accumulate over long periods of time.

Evolution and the Enzyme 25 Although neutral drift has little effect on enzyme function, it can influence the potential for future evolution of novel enzymes in two ways.

Adapted from T. Kosaka; S. Kato; T. Shimoyama; S. Ishii; T. Abe; K. Watanabe, Genome Res. 2008, 18, 442. 105 A problem with this hypothesis is that mutations are far more likely to destroy the function of a protein than to create a new function. An alternative scenario proposed by Hughes27 in 1994 suggests that new enzymes emerge by mutations that generate a novel secondary activity prior to gene duplication. If a secondary activity enhances fitness, selective pressure to retain a gene copy would exist immediately upon duplication; the two copies could then diverge to provide two different functions.
