The ~100-residue ERV/ALR sulfhydryl oxidase domain is a versatile module adapted for catalysis of disulfide bond formation in various organelles and biological settings. The ERV/ALR sulfhydryl oxidase domain has a Cys-X-X-Cys dithiol/disulfide motif adjacent to a bound FAD cofactor, enabling transfer of electrons from thiol substrates to non-thiol electron acceptors. ERV/ALR family members differ in their N- or C-terminal extensions, which typically contain at least one additional disulfide bond, the hypothesized 'shuttle' disulfide. In yeast ERV1, a mitochondrial enzyme, the shuttle disulfide is N-terminal to the catalytic core; in yeast ERV2, present in the endoplasmic reticulum, it is C-terminal. The N- and C-terminal extensions can be entire domains, such as the thioredoxin-like domains (see <PDOC00172>) or short segments that do not seem to be distinct domains. Proteins of the ERV/ALR family are encoded by all eukaryotes and cytoplasmic DNA viruses (poxviruses, African swine fever virus, iridoviruses, and Paramecium bursaria Chlorella virus 1) [1,2,3,4,5].
The ERV/ALR sulfhydryl oxidase domain contains a four-helix bundle (helices α1-α4) and an additional single turn of helix (α5) packed perpendicular to the bundle (see <PDB:1JRA>) [3,4]. The FAD prosthetic group is housed at the mouth of the 4-helix bundle and communicates with the pair of juxtaposed cysteine residues that form the proximal redox active site .
Some proteins known to contain an ERV/ALR sulfhydryl oxidase domain are listed below:
