Abstract

Direct interaction between intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) is often difficult to characterize hampering the elucidation of their binding mechanism. Particularly challenging is the study of fuzzy complexes, in which the intrinsically disordered proteins or regions retain conformational freedom within the assembly. To date, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has proven to be one of the most powerful techniques to characterize at the atomic level intrinsically disordered proteins and their interactions, including those cases where the formed complexes are highly dynamic. Here, we present the characterization of the interaction between a viral protein, the Early region 1A protein from Adenovirus (E1A), and a disordered region of the human CREB-binding protein, namely the fourth intrinsically disordered linker CBP-ID4. E1A was widely studied as a prototypical viral oncogene. Its interaction with two folded domains of CBP was mapped, providing hints for understanding some functional aspects of the interaction with this transcriptional coactivator. However, the role of the flexible linker connecting these two globular domains of CBP in this interaction was never explored before.
