The role of interaction between Asn259 (catalytic domain) with Gln821 (C-terminal domain) in PeptidaseN was investigated. The kcat of PeptidaseN containing Asn259Asp or Gln821Glu is enhanced whereas it is suppressed in Asn259AspGln821Glu. Structural analysis shows this interaction to change the relative disposition of active site residues, which modulates catalytic activity.
