    Abstract Human mitochondrial 5'(3')-deoxyribonucleotidase (mdN) catalyzes dephosphorylation of nucleoside monophosphates, and thus helps maintain homeostasis of deoxynucleosides required for mitochondrial DNA synthesis. Mature mdN is a 23-kDa dimeric protein with highest expression levels in the heart, brain and skeletal muscle. We have identified an alternative splice variant of the mdN gene containing an 18-nucleotide insertion encoding 6 amino acids (GKWPAT) at the 3'-end of the penultimate exon 4. We recombinantly expressed this enzyme variant and characterized its biochemical and kinetic properties as well as its three-dimensional structure. Our high-resolution (1.27 Å) crystal structure revealed that the insertion forms a loop located in the vicinity of the active site pocket and affects enzyme kinetic parameters as well as protein thermal stability.
