Multiple muscle-specific isoforms of the Zn2+ metalloenzyme AMP deaminase (AMPD) have been identified based on their biochemical and genetic differences. Our previous observations suggested that the metal binding protein histidine-proline-rich glycoprotein (HPRG) participates in the assembly and maintenance of skeletal muscle AMP deaminase (AMPD1) by acting as a zinc chaperone. The evidence of a role of millimolar-strength phosphate in stabilizing the AMPD-HPRG complex of both AMPD1 and cardiac AMP deaminase (AMPD3) is suggestive of a physiological mutual dependence between the two subunit components with regard to the stability of the two isoforms of striated muscle AMPD. The observed influence of the HPRG content on the catalytic behavior of the two enzymes further strengthens this hypothesis. Based on the preferential localization of HPRG at the sarcomeric I-band and on the presence of a Zn2+ binding motif in the N-terminal regions of fast TnT and of the AMPD1 catalytic subunit, we advance the hypothesis that the Zn binding properties of HPRG could promote the association of AMPD1 to the thin filament.
