novel mutation (G57W) in CRYGS in this Chinese family is associated with autosomal dominant pulverulent cataract.
The data suggest that enhanced attractive protein-protein interactions, arising from the deamidation of HGS, promote protein aggregation, thereby leading to increased light scattering and opacity over time.
The effects of the V41M mutation on the structural changes of gamma S-crystallin were studied.
The cataract-associated mutant D26G of human gammaS-crystallin is remarkably close to the wild type molecule in structural features, with only a microenvironmental change in the packing around the mutation site.
replacement of valine in position 42 by the longer and bulkier methionine in human gammaS-crystallin perturbs the compact beta-sheet core packing topology in the N-terminal domain of the molecule
age-dependent cleavage of gammaS-crystallin generates a peptide that binds to cell membranes
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, circular dichroism (CD), and dynamic light scattering (DLS) measurements were used to investigate the aggregation propensity of the eye-lens protein gammaS-crystallin.
Partially folded aggregation intermediates of human gammaD-, gammaC-, and gammaS-crystallin are recognized and bound by human alphaB-crystallin (show CRYAB Proteins).
A lens gamma S-crystallin has been identified with an in vivo modification, S-methylation of cysteine residues, that may block intermolecular disulfide bondng and serve as a form of protection against cataract.
when glutathione becomes bound to gammaS-crystallin, it causes it to bind in turn to the beta-crystallin polypeptides to form a dimer
gammaS may have a functional role related to actin, perhaps in 'shepherding' filaments to maintain the optical properties of the lens cytoplasm and normal fiber cell maturation
Mutant Crygs gene can lead to changes of BFSP/filensin (show BFSP1 Proteins) and other crystallins. Changes to these crystallins, together, may secondarily lead to cataract formation.
disruption of the Hsf4 (show HSF4 Proteins) gene leads to cataracts via at least three pathways: down-regulation of gamma-crystallin, particularly gamma S-crystallin; decreased lens beaded filament expression; and loss of post-translational modification of alpha A-crystallin (show CRYAA Proteins)
Mass spectrometry analysis and a database search identified carbamylated proteins originating from alphaA-crystallin (show CRYAA Proteins), betaB2- and gammaS-(betaS)-crystallins.
Crystallins are separated into two classes taxon-specific, or enzyme, and ubiquitous. The latter class constitutes the major proteins of vertebrate eye lens and maintains the transparency and refractive index of the lens. Since lens central fiber cells lose their nuclei during development, these crystallins are made and then retained throughout life, making them extremely stable proteins. Mammalian lens crystallins are divided into alpha, beta, and gamma families\; beta and gamma crystallins are also considered as a superfamily. Alpha and beta families are further divided into acidic and basic groups. Seven protein regions exist in crystallins: four homologous motifs, a connecting peptide, and N- and C-terminal extensions. Gamma-crystallins are a homogeneous group of highly symmetrical, monomeric proteins typically lacking connecting peptides and terminal extensions. They are differentially regulated after early development. This gene encodes a protein initially considered to be a beta-crystallin but the encoded protein is monomeric and has greater sequence similarity to other gamma-crystallins. This gene encodes the most significant gamma-crystallin in adult eye lens tissue. Whether due to aging or mutations in specific genes, gamma-crystallins have been involved in cataract formation.
