Abstract
FAM72A (p17) is a novel neuronal protein that has been linked to tumorigenic effects in non-neuronal tissue. Using state of the art in silico physicochemical analyses (e.g., I-TASSER, RaptorX, and Modeller), we determined the three-dimensional (3D) protein structure of FAM72A and further identified potential ligand-protein interactions. Our data indicate a Zn2+/Fe3+-containing 3D protein structure, based on a 3GA3_A model template, which potentially interacts with the organic molecule RSM ((2s)-2-(acetylamino)-N-methyl-4-[(R)-methylsulfinyl] butanamide). The discovery of RSM may serve as potential lead for further anti-FAM72A drug screening tests in the pharmaceutical industry because interference with FAM72A's activities via RSM-related molecules might be a novel option to influence the tumor suppressor protein p53 signaling pathways for the treatment of various types of cancers.
