Summary:
Methionyl-tRNA synthetase (MetRS) is a member of the family of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, which interpret the genetic code by covalently linking amino acids to their specific tRNA molecules. The reaction is driven by ATP hydrolysis. MetRS belongs to the Class I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases; apart from sequence motifs whithin the active site, the different enzymes show little similarity in their primary amino acid sequences [Eriani90, Landes95].

The biochemical properties and reaction mechanism of MetRS have been studied extensively; e.g. [Lemoine68, Blanquet72, Blanquet73, Blanquet73a, Lawrence73, Lawrence73a, Lawrence74, Fayat74, Blanquet74, Blanquet75, Hyafil76, Hyafil77, Old77, Fayat77, Hyafil78, Fayat80, Smith82, Mayaux82, Lowe83, Rosevear88, McArdell89, Williams91]. MetRS acylates both initiator tRNAfMet and elongator tRNAMet; acylation of tRNAfMet appears to be more efficient [Ron78]. MetRS contains one zinc atom per active site that is coordinated by four cysteine residues which are essential for activity [Landro93, Fourmy93, Fourmy93a, Xu93].

Crystal structures of MetRS have been determined [Risler81, Zelwer82, Blow83, Brunie90, Mechulam99, Serre01, Crepin03, Schmitt09]. The structural domains can be expressed separately and can reconstitute active MetRS enzyme [Burbaum91, Kim98]. The C-terminal domain can function independently for specific binding of the tRNA anticodon stem-loop [Gale95]. The ATP binding site was identified by affinity labeling [Hountondji90]. Catalysis is proposed to involve an induced fit mechanism [Alexander99]. The evaluation of enzymes containing point mutations in residues that may link the anticodon binding motif to the catalytic domain [Alexander99, Banerjee09] as well as comparisons between crystal structures of the apo- and methionine-bound enzyme [Serre01] support this hypothesis. Molecular dynamics simulations confirm significant motility of the enzyme, suggesting that Trp461 mediates the distribution of structural ensembles [Budiman07] and confirming the pathways of communication between distant sites [Ghosh07, Ghosh08a]. The methionine binding site was predicted [Datta04], and non-hydrolyzable ATP analogues and methionine and methionyl adenylate analogues have been used to study conformational changes during catalysis [Williams91a, Crepin03, Vaughan05].

Regions within MetRS that interact with tRNAfMet [Hountondji85, Valenzuela86, Leon87, Leon87a, Schulman87, Hountondji90a] and tRNAMet [Leon87b] have been determined [Kim94]. The Trp461 residue may interact directly with the tRNA anticodon loop [Ghosh90]; Asp391 may interact directly with U36 [Kim93]. Suppressor enzymes that are able to aminoacylate methionine amber tRNA carry mutations in the vicinity of Trp461 [Meinnel91, Schmitt93].

Site-directed mutagenesis and analysis of the mutant enzymes has been used to study the domain structure, catalytic properties and the roles of active site residues of the enzyme [Mellot89, Starzyk89, Casina11]. Lys335 is required for methionine activation [Mechulam91]; Tyr358 [Ghosh91] contributes to the ATP-PPi exchange reaction. All residues within the 332KMSKS336 motif [Schmitt94] and His21 and His24 within the N-terminal HLGH motif [Schmitt95] are important for methionyl adenylate formation. Asp55 and Arg233 appear to play a role in stabilizing the transition state for formation of the methionine adenylate [Ghosh91a]. His301 and Trp305 are required for the interaction with methionine [Ghosh91a, Fourmy91], and Trp305 and Tyr15 serve to discriminate against homocysteine [Kim93a]. The conserved Pro14 within the nucleotide binding fold may open an amino acid binding cleft [Burbaum92], and a Leu13Gly [Link06] and other selected mutations [Tanrikulu09] allow use of azidonorleucine as a substrate [Schmitt09]. Arg395 [Ghosh91b], Asp391 [Kim93], Asp449 and Asp456 [Schmitt93] play roles in tRNA recognition. Mutations in the C-terminal domain peptide appendix affect interactions with the acceptor stem of tRNAfMet and enzyme dimerization [Kim93b, Crepin02]. Ile29 appears to be involved in discrimination against tRNAThrGGU [Kim98a]. Residues within the CP1 domain that contains the zinc-binding peptide contribute to the stabilization of the transition state [Fourmy95].

Specificity determinants within tRNAfMet that are important for recognition by MetRS have been investigated [Schulman73, Dube73, Bruton74, Wetzel77, Schulman77, Jacques77, Schulman83, Ohtsuka83, Schulman83a, Petersen84, Schulman84, Doi85, Doi85a, Schulman85, Ferguson86, Pelka86, Perreault89, Chattapadhyay90, Meinnel91a, Meinnel92, Meinnel93, Gale96, Jones11]. The acceptor stem [Meinnel93] and the anticodon loop including the wobble base play an essential role. Unlike CysRS and other Class I tRNA synthethases, MetRS does not discriminate against an unpaired C-A that is unique to the 1-72 position of tRNAfMet [Liu11].

MetRS can reject misactivated homocysteine by tRNA-independent pre-transfer editing [Fersht79, Jakubowski81, Jakubowski90, Jakubowski93, Jakubowski93a, Kim93a, Jakubowski96]. The homocysteine-AMP intermediate is destroyed in an intramolecular cyclization reaction in which the thiolate side chain of homocysteine displaces the AMP group, forming homocysteine-thiolactone [Jakubowski81]. A C-terminal region of MetRS is suggested to play a role in editing in vivo [Gao94].

MetRS expression is upregulated under methionine-limited growth conditions [Archibold72] and by reduced acylation levels of tRNAfMet [Cassio75]. MetRS levels are coupled to the growth rate [Cassio75a].

The metG gene encoding MetRS has been cloned [Barker82, Dardel84]. Overproduction of MetRS leads to increased levels of adenylylated bis(5'-nucleosidyl) tetraphosphates (Ap4N) in the cell [Brevet89]. A transposon insertion into the the C-terminal coding region of metG results in a 10,000-fold higher frequency of persister formation than wild type [Girgis12].

Inhibitors of MetRS activity [Lee98a, Lee99, Lee01b, Lee03c, Kim03, Kim05, Kim06b], L-methionine analogs that can be activated by MetRS [Kiick01, Kiick02], and tRNAs that can be mischarged by MetRS [Jones11] have been identified.
