Tetraethylammonium block of the BNC1 channel. (1/363)

The brain Na+ channel-1 (BNC1, also known as MDEG1 or ASIC2) is a member of the DEG/ENaC cation channel family. Mutation of a specific residue (Gly430) that lies N-terminal to the second membrane-spanning domain activates BNC1 and converts it from a Na+-selective channel to one permeable to both Na+ and K+. Because all K+ channels are blocked by tetraethylammonium (TEA), we asked if TEA would inhibit BNC1 with a mutation at residue 430. External TEA blocked BNC1 when residue 430 was a Val or a Thr. Block was steeply voltage-dependent and was reduced when current was outward, suggesting multi-ion block within the channel pore. Block was dependent on the size of the quaternary ammonium; the smaller tetramethylammonium blocked with similar properties, whereas the larger tetrapropylammonium had little effect. When residue 430 was Phe, the effects of tetramethylammonium and tetrapropylammonium were not altered. In contrast, block by TEA was much less voltage-dependent, suggesting that the Phe mutation introduced a new TEA binding site located approximately 30% of the way across the electric field. These results provide insight into the structure and function of BNC1 and suggest that TEA may be a useful tool to probe function of this channel family.  (+info)

Paradoxical stimulation of a DEG/ENaC channel by amiloride. (2/363)

Extracellular amiloride inhibits all known DEG/ENaC ion channels, including BNC1, a proton-activated human neuronal cation channel. Earlier studies showed that protons cause a conformational change that activates BNC1 and exposes residue 430 to the extracellular solution. Here we demonstrate that, in addition to blocking BNC1, amiloride also exposes residue 430. This result suggested that, like protons, amiloride might be capable of activating the channel. To test this hypothesis, we introduced a mutation in the BNC1 pore that reduces amiloride block, and found that amiloride stimulated these channels. Amiloride inhibition was voltage-dependent, suggesting block within the pore, whereas stimulation was not, suggesting binding to an extracellular site. These data show that amiloride can have two distinct effects on BNC1, and they suggest two different interaction sites. The results suggest that extracellular amiloride binding may have a stimulatory effect similar to that of protons in BNC1 or extracellular ligands in other DEG/ENaC channels.  (+info)

Cloning and functional expression of a novel degenerin-like Na+ channel gene in mammals. (3/363)

1. A degenerate polymerase chain reaction (PCR) homology screening procedure was applied to rat brain cDNA in order to identify novel genes belonging to the amiloride-sensitive Na+ channel and degenerin (NaC/DEG) family of ion channels. A single gene was identified that encodes a protein related to but clearly different from the already cloned members of the family (18-30 % amino acid sequence identity). Phylogenetic analysis linked this protein to the group of ligand-gated channels that includes the mammalian acid-sensing ion channels and the Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-amide (FMRFamide)-activated Na+ channel. 2. Expression of gain-of-function mutants after cRNA injection into Xenopus laevis oocytes or transient transfection of COS cells induced large constitutive currents. The activated channel was amiloride sensitive (IC50, 1.31 microM) and displayed a low conductance (9-10 pS) and a high selectivity for Na+ over K+ (ratio of the respective permeabilities, PNa+/PK+ >= 10), all of which are characteristic of NaC/DEG channel behaviour. 3. Northern blot and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis revealed a predominant expression of its mRNA in the small intestine, the liver (including hepatocytes) and the brain. This channel has been called the brain-liver-intestine amiloride-sensitive Na+ channel (BLINaC). 4. Corresponding gain-of-function mutations in Caenorhabditis elegans degenerins are responsible for inherited neurodegeneration in the nematode. Besides the BLINaC physiological function that remains to be established, mutations in this novel mammalian degenerin-like channel might be of pathophysiological importance in inherited neurodegeneration and liver or intestinal pathologies.  (+info)

Molecular cloning, functional expression and chromosomal localization of an amiloride-sensitive Na(+) channel from human small intestine. (4/363)

Amiloride-sensitive Na(+) channels belonging to the recently discovered NaC/DEG family of genes have been found in several human tissues including epithelia and central and peripheral neurons. We describe here the molecular cloning of a cDNA encoding a novel human amiloride-sensitive Na(+) channel subunit that is principally expressed in the small intestine and has been called hINaC (human intestine Na(+) channel). This protein is similar to the recently identified rodent channel BLINaC and is relatively close to the acid sensing ion channels (ASICs) (79 and 29% amino acid identity, respectively). ASICs are activated by extracellular protons and probably participate in sensory neurons to nociception linked to tissue acidosis. hINaC is not activated by lowering the external pH but gain-of-function mutations can be introduced and reveal when expressed in Xenopus oocytes, an important Na(+) channel activity which is blocked by amiloride (IC(50)=0.5 microM). These results suggest the existence of a still unknown physiological activator for hINaC (e.g. an extracellular ligand). The presence of this new amiloride-sensitive Na(+) channel in human small intestine probably has interesting physiological as well as physiopathological implications that remain to be clarified. The large activation of this channel by point mutations may be associated with a degenerin-like behavior as previously observed for channels expressed in nematode mechanosensitive neurons. The hINaC gene has been mapped on the 4q31.3-q32 region of the human genome.  (+info)

Neuropeptide FF and FMRFamide potentiate acid-evoked currents from sensory neurons and proton-gated DEG/ENaC channels. (5/363)

Acidosis is associated with inflammation and ischemia and activates cation channels in sensory neurons. Inflammation also induces expression of FMRFamidelike neuropeptides, which modulate pain. We found that neuropeptide FF (Phe-Leu-Phe-Gln-Pro-Gln-Arg-Phe amide) and FMRFamide (Phe-Met-Arg-Phe amide) generated no current on their own but potentiated H+-gated currents from cultured sensory neurons and heterologously expressed ASIC and DRASIC channels. The neuropeptides slowed inactivation and induced sustained currents during acidification. The effects were specific; different channels showed distinct responses to the various peptides. These results suggest that acid-sensing ion channels may integrate multiple extracellular signals to modify sensory perception.  (+info)

Isolation of a tarantula toxin specific for a class of proton-gated Na+ channels. (6/363)

Acid sensing is associated with nociception, taste transduction, and perception of extracellular pH fluctuations in the brain. Acid sensing is carried out by the simplest class of ligand-gated channels, the family of H(+)-gated Na(+) channels. These channels have recently been cloned and belong to the acid-sensitive ion channel (ASIC) family. Toxins from animal venoms have been essential for studies of voltage-sensitive and ligand-gated ion channels. This paper describes a novel 40-amino acid toxin from tarantula venom, which potently blocks (IC(50) = 0.9 nm) a particular subclass of ASIC channels that are highly expressed in both central nervous system neurons and sensory neurons from dorsal root ganglia. This channel type has properties identical to those described for the homomultimeric assembly of ASIC1a. Homomultimeric assemblies of other members of the ASIC family and heteromultimeric assemblies of ASIC1a with other ASIC subunits are insensitive to the toxin. The new toxin is the first high affinity and highly selective pharmacological agent for this novel class of ionic channels. It will be important for future studies of their physiological and physio-pathological roles.  (+info)

Mammalian ASIC2a and ASIC3 subunits co-assemble into heteromeric proton-gated channels sensitive to Gd3+. (7/363)

Proton receptors of the acid-sensing ion channel (ASIC) family are expressed in sensory neurons and thus could play a critical role in the detection of noxious acidosis. To investigate the subunit composition of native ASICs in peripheral and central neurons, we co-injected human as well as rodent ASIC2a and ASIC3 subunits in Xenopus oocytes. The amplitudes of acid-induced biphasic responses mediated by co-expressed ASIC2a and ASIC3 subunits were much larger (as much as 20-fold) than the currents mediated by the respective homomers, clearly indicating functional association. The reversal potential of the ASIC2a+3 current (>/=+20 mV) reflected a cationic current mainly selective for sodium. The sensitivity to pH or amiloride of single versus co-expressed ASIC subunits was not significantly different; however, gadolinium ions inhibited ASIC3 and ASIC2a+3 responses with much higher potency (IC(50) approximately 40 microm) than the ASIC2a response (IC(50) >/=1 mm). Biochemical interaction between ASIC2a and ASIC3 subunits was demonstrated by co-purification from transfected human embryonic kidney (HEK293) cells and Xenopus oocytes. Our in situ hybridization data showed that rat ASIC2a and ASIC3 transcripts are co-localized centrally, whereas reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction data led us to detect co-expression of human ASIC2a and ASIC3 subunits in trigeminal sensory ganglia, brain, and testis where they might co-assemble into a novel subtype of proton-gated channels sensitive to gadolinium.  (+info)

A novel strategy for cancer therapy by mutated mammalian degenerin gene transfer. (8/363)

Mammalian degenerin (MDEG) is a member of the amiloride-sensitive sodium ion channel family, and its site-directed active mutant (MDEG-G430F) induces massive Na+ influx into cells, leading to cell ballooning and cell bursting. We attempted a novel therapeutic approach for gastric cancers by transferring MDEG-G430F into cancer cells using tumor-specific promoters. In carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)-producing gastric cancer cells, the level of cell death observed when MDEG-G430F was used with a CEA promoter was similar to that observed when using a potent nonspecific promoter such as the cytomegalovirus promoter. In an in vivo study, fusogenic liposome complexes containing MDEG-G430F driven by the CEA promoter were injected intraperitoneally into CEA-producing gastric cancer cells in a mouse peritoneal dissemination model. Although all 15 of the control mice were dead by 50 days postinoculation, 13 of the 15 mice treated with MDEG-G430F survived. These results indicate that transferring MDEG-G430F into cancer tissues using tumor-specific promoters can achieve striking and selective cancer cell death irrespective of the transcriptional efficiency of the promoters used in vivo, and suggest that this approach is a promising new strategy for cancer gene therapy.  (+info)

Inside the organism, changes in pH levels occur under pathophysiological conditions such as inflammation, ischemia, cancer, and the like, which are accompanied by pain. The Acid-sensing Ion Channel (ASIC) detects changes in pH levels in the organism and transmits the pain signal to the brain. Biologically, many studies have been conducted regarding the Acid-sensing Ion Channel; however, many areas are still unclear, especially in terms of the operational mechanism and the cell membrane merging mechanism. Professor Suhs research team detected the cell membrane merging mechanisms that modulate the activity of the Acid-sensing Ion Channel at the molecular level, and it is this discovery and identification of the new cell membrane merging mechanism of the Acid-sensing Ion Channel that had remained unknown until now. The research team identified through animal experiments that there is a different cell membrane merging mechanism between subunits of the Acid-sensing Ion Channel. ASIC2a can be merged ...
Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) are trimeric, sodium-selective channels activated by extracellular protons. Although ASICs are intriguing molecular targets for pharmacological agents, there remains a lack of selective compounds that differentiate ASIC subtypes. The peripherally located ASIC3 activates with the simple removal of calcium. Additionally, nonproton ligands, like 2-guanidine-4-methylquinazoline (GMQ), have been identified to selectively activate ASIC3 via the nonproton ligand sensor domain (NPLSD). A pair of glutamates in rat ASIC3 (E79 and E423) responsible for GMQ activation is present in ASIC1, despite having no direct modulation effect on the channel. We proposed that nonproton ligand activation of ASIC1 may be state dependent, and relies on expansion of the NPLSD in order for GMQ to reach the binding site and exert its effects. We utilized two features of ASICs in order to test our hypothesis with whole cell and outside out patch-clamp electrophysiology. First, we induced a persistent
Pathophysiological conditions such as inflammation, ischemia, infection and tissue injury can all evoke pain, and each is accompanied by local acidosis. Acid sensing ion channels (ASICs) are proton-gated cation channels expressed in both central and peripheral nervous systems. Increasing evidence suggests that ASICs represent essential sensors for tissue acidosis-related pain. This review provides an update on the role of ASICs in pain sensation and discusses their therapeutic potential for pain management.

A growing number of ion channels, particularly those native to neuronal and glial cell types, are now known to respond to fluctuations in extracellular [Ca2+]. Among these are the ASIC1a/ASIC1b, proton-gated cation channels permeable to Na+ and Ca2+ found in central and peripheral nerves (Babini et al., 2002). Interestingly, these are modulated by modest changes not only in extracellular Ca2+ but also in extracellular Mg2+ and polycations such as spermine. Xiong et al. recently provided evidence that ASIC1a is the key link between ischemia, acidosis and the injurious effects of ischemia in the brain, owing to the influx of toxic levels of Ca2+ into the cells during activation of the proton-gated channel (Xiong et al., 2004). Note that ischemia might be a condition under which derangements in extracellular [Ca2+], as well as interstitial pH, also occur (Imadojemu et al., 2004).. Novel non-selective cation channels sensitive to external Ca2+ have also been identified in hippocampal neurons (Xiong ...

Unlike AB5, AB4.1, although being proton-sensitive, produced dramatically smaller pH 4 gated currents compared with ASIC2a and demonstrated a large shift in its proton sensitivity. AB4.1 contains an additional 21 amino acids of ASIC2b compared with AB5, and lacks the following potentially protonatable sites that are expressed by the equivalent ASIC2a sequence: H145, E155, and H158. In the domain exchanged in AB4.1, there is little sequence conservation between ASIC subunits, with the exception of residues shared between ASIC2a and ASIC1a. Residues H145 and E155 are conserved between ASIC2a and ASIC1a, but not with other ASIC subunits. Residue 158 is highly variable among the mammalian ASICs, and thus, lack of this histidine is unlikely to account for ASIC2b insensitivity, and we have previously shown that mutation H158 in ASIC2a (as well as H145 and E155) did not have any significant impact upon ASIC2a proton sensitivity (Smith et al., 2007). Within the 21 ASIC2b amino acids that differentiate ...
ASICs are permeable to cations and are activated by extracellular acidosis. They are subject to modulation by extracellular alkalosis, intracellular pH and various other factors. Much of what we know about these channels properties comes from expressing recombinant ASIC subunits in heterologous cells. Channels are formed by combinations of ASIC subunits in homotrimeric or heterotrimeric complexes, with different subunits conferring distinct properties (TABLE 1). The amino acid sequences of ASIC subunits are well conserved between species, in fact the mouse ASIC 1a and the human ASIC 1a share over 99% of their amino acid sequence identity. The recently described crystal structure of the chicken ASIC1 homomultimeric channel has shed light on the subunit interactions and, along with sequence homology analyses, has driven numerous structure-function experiments that are revealing how the channels respond to pH and other stimuli. In addition to the non-covalent inter-subunit interactions, disulphide ...

Acid-sensing ionic channels (ASICs) have been shown to have a significant role in a growing number of physiological and pathological processes, such as nociception, synaptic transmission and plasticity, mechano-sensation and acidosis-induced neuronal injury. The discovery of pharmacological agents targeting ASICs has significant therapeutic potential and use as a research tool. In our work, we studied the action of transient perfusion (5 to 15 s) of aminoglycosides (AGs) (streptomycin and neomycin) on the proton-gated ionic currents in dorsal root ganglion neurons (DRG) of the rat and in HEK-293 cells. In DRG neurons, streptomycin and neomycin (30 μM) produced a significant, concentration-dependent and reversible reduction in the amplitude of the proton-gated current, and a slowing of the desensitization rate of the ASIC current. Gentamycin (30 μM) also showed a significant reversible action on the ASIC currents. The curves of the pH-effect for streptomycin and neomycin indicated that their ...
This toxin is a gating modifier that acts principally as an inhibitor on ASIC1a (ASIC isoform 2) and a potentiator on ASIC1b (ASIC isoform 3) (PubMed:10829030, PubMed:15955877, PubMed:21036899). This toxin potently and selectively inhibits rat, mouse and human ASIC1a (IC(50)=0.35-3.7 nM) (PubMed:10829030, PubMed:15955877, PubMed:21715637, PubMed:26248594, PubMed:21825095). The blockade is rapidly reversible (PubMed:10829030, PubMed:28320941). The toxin acts by shifting its steady-state desensitization to more alkaline pH (0.27 pH unit) (PubMed:15955877, PubMed:16505147). At higher concentrations, it potentiates rat and human ASIC1b and activates chicken ASIC1 by stabilizing the open state of these subtypes (PubMed:16505147, PubMed:21036899, PubMed:19185346, PubMed:24262969, PubMed:22842900). The toxin binds most tightly to the open and the desensitized states of ASIC1a (promoting desensitization), whereas it binds most tightly to the open state of ASIC1b (promoting opening) (PubMed:16505147). The toxin
Previous studies have identified a number of mutants and/or motifs that affect ASIC channel trafficking and/or function [28-34]. Most of these studies focused on ASIC1a. Our results demonstrated that the LL motifs in ASIC2a are important for its trafficking and function. All the mutants that we studied here had increased surface level (Fig. 1). However, only the DAA mutant exhibited a significant increase in surface:total ratio while the AADAA mutant had a marginal effect (p = 0.049). These data, together with our current recordings, indicate that most of the effect on ASIC2a surface trafficking and channel function was mainly mediated by the second LL motif. We speculate that the exact location of the LL motif may contribute to the differences observed between mutating the two LL motifs. It remains unclear as to the exact mechanism of how the LL motifs regulate ASIC2a. Our data here showed that the AADAA and DAA mutants increased the maturation of N-linked glycans. N-glycosylation is an ...

that all of these other stimuli were exteroceptive in nature, mainly processed through visual and auditory pathways that project to the amygdala. In contrast, CO2 acts internally at acid-activated chemoreceptors and causes an array of physiological changes. Thus, CO2 might engage interoceptive afferent sensory pathways that project to the brainstem, diencephalon and insular cortex. In addition, many brain areas outside the amygdala possess CO2 and pH-sensitive chemoreceptors, including acid-sensing ion channels. Thus, CO2 may directly activate extra-amygdalar brain structures that underlie fear and panic, which may help to explain the apparent discrepancy between these findings and previous work in mice. In either case, our results indicate that, in humans, the internal threat signaled by CO2 is detected and interpreted as fear and panic despite the absence of an intact amygdala ...

ASICs (Acid Sensing Ion Channels) are of particular interest because they are directly activated by extracellular acidity, which is a major cause of pain. Indeed, many painful conditions such as ischemia, inflammation, tumor development or tissue incision are accompanied by tissue acidification. ASIC are excitatory ion channels that are expressed in neurons, including nociceptive sensory neurons. In humans, the use of amiloride, a nonspecific inhibitor of ASICs, has demonstrated their role in the perception of pain induced by subcutaneous injections of acidic solutions. ASICs thus appear as new candidates capable of mediating pain in humans. A growing number of data suggests that, in addition to protons, ASICs may also be activated by one or more endogenous compounds produced during inflammation. The purpose of this research project is to identify these compounds by testing the effects of human inflammatory exudates on ASICs activity. The discovery of such compounds would definitely validate ...

As a component of the GATOR1 complex functions as an inhibitor of the amino acid-sensing branch of the TORC1 pathway. The GATOR1 complex strongly increases GTP hydrolysis by RRAGA and RRAGB within RRAGC-containing heterodimers, thereby deactivating RRAGs, releasing mTORC1 from lysosomal surface and inhibiting mTORC1 signaling. The GATOR1 complex is negatively regulated by GATOR2 the other GATOR subcomplex in this amino acid-sensing branch of the TORC1 pathway ...

Amiloride-sensitive cation channel 1, neuronal (degenerin), also known as ACCN1, is a human gene.[1] This gene encodes a member of the degenerin/epithelial sodium channel (DEG/ENaC) superfamily. The members of this family are amiloride-sensitive sodium channels that contain intracellular N and C termini, 2 hydrophobic transmembrane regions, and a large extracellular loop, which has many cysteine residues with conserved spacing. The member encoded by this gene may play a role in neurotransmission. In addition, a heteromeric association between this member and ACCN3 (variant 1) has been observed to co-assemble into proton-gated channels sensitive to gadolinium. Alternative splicing has been observed at this locus and two variants, encoding distinct isoforms, have been identified.[1] ...

The Epithelial Na+ Channel (ENaC) Family (TC 1.A.06) The ENaC family consists of sodium channels from animals and has no recognizable homologues in other eukaryotes or bacteria. The vertebrate ENaC proteins from epithelial cells cluster tightly together on the phylogenetic tree: voltage-insensitive ENaC homologues are also found in the brain. Eleven sequenced C. elegans proteins, including the degenerins, are distantly related to the vertebrate proteins as well as to each other. At least some of these proteins form part of a mechano-transducing complex for touch sensitivity. Other members of the ENaC family, the acid-sensing ion channels, ASIC1-3, are homo- or hetero-oligomeric neuronal H+-gated channels that mediate pain sensation in response to tissue acidosis. The homologous Helix aspersa (FMRF-amide)-activated Na+ channel is the first peptide neurotransmitter-gated ionotropic receptor to be sequenced. Mammalian ENaC is important for the maintenance of Na+ balance and the regulation of blood ...
Recent studies have shown that the acid-sensing ion channel 1 (ASIC1) contributes to the axonal degeneration in CNS lesions Physiologically, ASIC1 has been described as a postsynaptic proton receptor on hippocampal neurons influencing the intracellular Ca2+ concentration. In MS, ASIC1 seems to activate under acidic conditions predominating in the inflammatory CNS lesions leading to a Na+ and Ca2+ overload and consecutive damage and apoptosis of axons. Consecutively, in a MS mousemodel axonal damage was significantly less pronounced after administering amiloride, a clinically safe blocker of ASICs. So ASIC1 seems to play a major role in axonal degeneration in MS. To our knowledge no clinical studies have tested those promising in vitro results in humans so far.. Only one retrospective registry-based cohort study was performed. This study showed no difference in the risk of incident MS or hospitalization and death among MS patients using amilorid compared to those using thiazide diuretics. ...

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Excel33 Running Shoe:. I was an avid 260TR lover until Asics discontinued the shoe. The 260TR was a great run/walk shoe as well as a cross trainer. I dont believe Asics has another shoe like it on the market. I developed severe extensor/flexor tendonitis from cross training in my Asics Cumulus shoes so I decided to try the Excel 33s to wear when I workout with my trainer and TRX classes. I just purchased the Asics Nimbus 14 for run/walking (the next generation cumulus had horrible reviews). It has been 2 weeks and I like the Excel 33s. I dont think I would even try to run in them, but like them for my intense training sessions and TRX. I wear an 8 1/2 in my running shoes and bought these in an 8. ...
If you are a mild/moderate overpronator with poor natural support then you will need a shoe from the ASICS Structured Cushioning range..

This is effectively the same definition as a gate array.. What makes a structured/platform ASIC different from a gate array is that in a gate array the predefined metal layers serve to make manufacturing turnaround faster. In a structured/platform ASIC the predefined metallization is primarily to reduce cost of the mask sets and is also used to make the design cycle time significantly shorter as well. For example, in a cell-based or gate-array design the user often must design power, clock, and test structures themselves; these are predefined in most Structured/Platform ASICs and therefore can save time and expense for the designer compared to gate-array. Likewise, the design tools used for structured/Platform ASIC can be substantially lower cost and easier (faster) to use than cell-based tools, because the tools do not have to perform all the functions that cell-based tools do. In some cases, the structured/platform ASIC vendor requires that customized tools for their device (for example, ...

Non-elite runners would benefit more by not carrying fluids and focusing on having better form and efficiency in training runs of less than two hours. Another reason to not carry water on runs shorter than two hours is that research has indicated that more adaptation occurs when the organisms water content is 1-2% decreased. It is sometimes referred to as the quart low theory, although the unit quart should not be taken literally. So it is actually beneficial to lose some fluid during training so that you force the appropriate adaptation, become more efficient and increase your fitness. The super-compensation effect is not promoted when your body maintains the status quo of pre-training bout levels ...
