NADH-Cytochrome $$b$$$$_{5}$$ reductase (b5R), a flavoprotein consisting of NADH and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) binding domains, catalyzes electron transfer from the two-electron carrier NADH to the one-electron carrier cytochrome $$b$$$$_{5}$$ (Cb5). The crystal structures of both the fully reduced form and the oxidized form of porcine liver b5R were determined. In the reduced b5R structure determined at 1.68${AA}$ resolution, the relative configuration of the two domains was slightly shifted in comparison with that of the oxidized form. This shift resulted in an increase in the solvent-accessible surface area of FAD and created a new hydrogen-bonding interaction between the N5 atom of the isoalloxazine ring of FAD and the hydroxyl oxygen atom of Thr66, which is considered to be a key residue in the release of a proton from the N5 atom. The isoalloxazine ring of FAD in the reduced form is flat as in the oxidized form and stacked together with the nicotinamide ring of NAD$$^{+}$$. Determination of the oxidized b5R structure, including the hydrogen atoms, determined at 0.78${AA}$ resolution revealed the details of a hydrogen-bonding network from the N5 atom of FAD to His49 via Thr66. Both of the reduced and oxidized b5R structures explain how backflow in this catalytic cycle is prevented and the transfer of electrons to one-electron acceptors such as Cb5 is accelerated. Furthermore, crystallographic analysis by the cryo-trapping method suggests that re-oxidation follows a two-step mechanism. These results provide structural insights into the catalytic cycle of b5R.

We have been investigating for neutron detection with the MgB $$_{2}$$ transition edge sensor (TES). For the purpose, we have been developing a low noise measurement system for neutron detection. To confirm the usefulness of our detecting system, alpha-ray detection from an $$^{241}$$Am source was achieved. To improve the sensitivity, short meander samples with 35 $$mu$$m length and 1 $$mu$$m width is used. Samples are fabricated by the Kansai group. Superconducting transition temperature Tc is 23.3 K. The transition width is sharp enough less than 1 K. The detection was achieved under a constant current condition, and the resistivity changes at the sample due to the alpha-ray irradiation were detected. The bias current is 6 $$mu$$A.

NADH-cytochrome b5 reductase (b5R) is a pyridine nucleotide-dependent flavin reductase which contains a FAD in a molecule. The b5R catalyzes the electron transfer from NADH to cytochrome b5. The b5R is related to fatty acid metabolism and reduction of cytochrome P450. In order to clarify detailed structure of b5R, we carried out purification of b5R from E coli cell according to the method previously reported. Since a large-size crystal is necessary for the neutron structure analysis, we addressed enlargement of crystal by macroseeding method and periodical addition of protein sample to the crystallization solution. We succeeded in a preparation of large-scale crystal with a size of 1.0$$times$$0.5$$times$$0.3 mm, which is suitable for preliminary neutron diffraction study.

NADH-cytochrome ${it b$_{5}$}$ reductase (b5R; EC 1.6.2.2) is a flavoprotein and catalyses two-electron transfer from NADH to cytochrome ${it b$_{5}$}$ through FAD. Here, we present crystal structures of fully reduced and two re-oxidized forms of b5Rs determined. The crystal structure of fully reduced b5R showed that the relative location of two domains slightly shifted in comparison with that of oxidized form. This shift allowed to create a new hydrogen bonding interaction between N5 atom of isoalloxazine ring and hydroxyl oxygen atom of Thr66. The isoalloxazine ring of FAD in fully reduced form is flat and stacked with the nicotinamide ring of bound NAD$$^{+}$$. Moreover, two re-oxidized forms (form-1 and 2) were prepared using fully reduced crystals by exposure to the air. The electron densities for the nicotinamide ring of NAD$$^{+}$$ was ambiguous in form-1 and was completely disappeared in form-2. These results suggested that re-oxidization follows a two-step mechanism in which nicotinamide moiety is released firstly and then whole NAD$$^{+}$$ is released.

NADH-cytochrome ${it b$_{5}$}$ reductase (b5R) is a flavoprotein consisting of NADH- and FAD- domains, and catalyzes the electron transfer from two electron carriers of NADH to one electron carrier of cytochrome ${it b$_{5}$}$ (Cb5). The structure of the fully reduced form of porcine liver b5R was determined using a crystal grown under anaerobic condition. In the reduced b5R structure, which was determined at 1.68 ${AA}$ resolution, the relative location of the two domains was slightly shifted in comparison with that of the oxidized form. This shift resulted in an increase in the solvent accessible surface area of FAD, and created a new hydrogen bonding interaction between the N5 atom of the isoalloxazine ring of FAD and the hydroxyl oxygen atom of Thr66, which is considered to be a key residue in the release of a proton from the N5 atom. The isoalloxazine ring of FAD in the reduced form is flat, which is similar to that in the oxidized form, and is stacked with the nicotinamide ring of NAD$$^{+}$$. Both of reduced and oxidized b5R structures could explain how prevents the backflow and accelerates the transfer of electrons to one-electron acceptors, such as Cb5, in the catalytic cycle. Furthermore, the crystallographic analysis by the cryo-trapping method, which controls the exposure time of the fully reduced crystals against the air, suggested that re-oxidation follows a two-step mechanism. These results provide structural insights into the catalytic cycle of b5R.

NADH-cytochrome ${it b$_{5}$}$ reductase (b5R), a flavoprotein consisting of NADH- and FAD-domains, catalyzes electron transfer from the two-electron carrier NADH to the one-electron carrier cytochrome ${it b$_{5}$}$. The reaction catalyzed by b5R plays a role in fatty acid synthesis, cholesterol synthesis, and xenobiotic oxidation as a member of the electron transport chain on the endoplasmic reticulum. We have already determined the crystal structures of both the fully reduced and oxidized forms of porcine liver b5R by X-ray crystallography, but, its detail mechanism, especially hydride/proton transfers and exact states of semiquinone, still remains unknown. The hydrogen information obtained by neutron crystallography will be essential for the real understanding of catalytic cycle of the b5R. For neutron diffraction experiments, we prepared large crystals with the size of almost 2 mm$$^{3}$$. Large crystals were transferred to cryo-protectant solution by stepwise soaking method, and then were flash-frozen in a cold nitrogen gas stream. In preliminary neutron experiment, we confirmed some diffraction spots above 1.4 ${AA}$, resolution from a crystal with the size of 1.8 mm$$^{3}$$ under 100 K at BL03 (iBIX), MLF, J-PARC after 14 hours exposure at 300 KW accelerator power.

A large crystal with the size of almost 2 mm$$^{3}$$ was transferred to cryo-protectant solution by stepwise soaking method, and then were flash-frozen in a cold nitrogen gas stream. Using this crystal, we collected neutron data to 1.4${AA}$ resolution at BL03 (iBIX), MLF, J-PARC, and then collected to 0.85${AA}$ resolution at BL5A, PF, KEK. Crystallographic refinement using both neutron and X-ray data is in progress.
