We characterized three mutant DnaA proteins with an amino acid substitution of R334H, R342H and E361G that renders chromosomal replication cold (20°C) sensitive. Each mutant DnaA protein was highly purified from overproducers, and replication activities were assayed in in vitro oriC replication systems. At 30°C, all three mutant proteins exhibited specific activity similar to that seen with the wild-type protein, whereas at 20°C, there was much less activity in a replication system using a crude replicative extract. Regarding the affinity for ATP, the dissociation rate of bound ATP and binding to oriC DNA, the three mutant DnaA proteins showed a capacity indistinguishable from that of the wild-type DnaA protein. Activity for oriC DNA unwinding of the two mutant DnaA proteins, R334H and R342H, was more sensitive to low temperature than that of the wild-type DnaA protein. We propose that R334H and R342H have a defect in their potential to unwind oriC DNA at low temperatures, the result being the cold-sensitive phenotype in oriC DNA replication. The two amino acid residues of DnaA protein, located in a motif homologous to that of NtrC protein, may play a role in the formation of the open complex. The E361 residue may be related to interaction with another protein present in a crude cell extract.
