Here, we present the crystal structure of the intact Escherichia coli RelB(2)E(2) complex at 2.8 {\AA} resolution, comprising both the RelB-inhibited RelE and the RelB dimerization domain that binds DNA. RelE and RelB associate into a V-shaped heterotetrameric complex with the ribbon-helix-helix (RHH) dimerization domain at the apex. Our structure supports a model in which relO is optimally bound by two adjacent RelB(2)E heterotrimeric units, and is not compatible with concomitant binding of two RelB(2)E(2) heterotetramers. The results thus provide a firm basis for understanding the model of conditional cooperativity at the molecular level.",
