Correlation between enzyme function and conformational motions of amino acid networks>10 Å fromthe active site has been well established for discrete enzyme systems. However, approaches for charac-terizing dynamical properties across diverse sequence homologs within a family and their correlationwith enzyme activity remain challenging. Members of the pancreatic-type ribonuclease (ptRNase) super-family share similarities in structure and fold, but display large variations in conformational dynamics,catalytic efficiencies, and tissue specific biological activities, making them ideal model systems for prob-ing the relationship between conformational motions and function. As a step towards determining thisrelationship between dynamics and catalytic efficiency for various members of this broad vertebratefamily, we performed the systematic characterization of the intrinsic dynamics of>20 RNases, withexperimentally solved structures, over a wide range of time-scales by integrating molecular dynamicssimulations and NMR relaxation dispersion experiments. Our results show distinct patterns of dynamicalvariations between canonical RNases clustered into taxonomic groups, henceforth referred to as subfa-milies. We show that conformational motions on the catalytically relevant micro- to milli-second time-scale are significantly different for RNases sharing the common fold. Interestingly, sequences sharingsimilar conformational exchange on this timescale also share similar biological functions. Further, quan-titative characterization of pair-wise correlations of dynamical properties between the RNase membersshowed strong correlations within subfamilies that share similar functions. These results suggest thatselective pressure for conservation of specific atomic-scale dynamical behaviors, among other factors,may potentially impact distinct biological functions of enzymes sharing the same fold. Further experi-ments are required to characterize the correlation between conserved dynamical properties and biologi-cal function.
