Allosteric regulation of even-skipped repression activity by phosphorylation. (1/3161)

The Drosophila homeodomain protein Even-skipped (Eve) is a well characterized transcriptional repressor. Here, we show that Eve's ability to function in vitro is negatively regulated by phosphorylation. DNA-binding activity was unaffected by phosphorylation, but phosphorylated Eve was unable to interact with the TATA-binding protein (TBP), a known target for repression. Unexpectedly, phosphorylation of the Eve N terminus, which is dispensable for repression and TBP binding, was necessary and sufficient to inactivate Eve. LiCl, which specifically inhibits glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3), reduced Eve phosphorylation in nuclear extract and blocked inhibition of repression. In addition, Eve was phosphorylated and inactivated by purified GSK-3 beta plus casein kinase II. Our results suggest a novel mechanism of transcriptional control involving phosphorylation-induced allosteric interference with a repressive protein-protein interaction.  (+info)

Regulation of AMP deaminase from chicken erythrocytes. A kinetic study of the allosteric interactions. (2/3161)

The allosteric properties of AMP deaminase [EC 3.5.4.6] from chicken erythrocytes have been qualitatively and quantitatively accounted for by the concerted transition theory of Monod et al., on the assumption that this enzyme has different numbers of binding sites for each ligand. Theoretical curves yield a satisfactory fit for all experimental saturation functions with respect to activation by alkali metals and inhibition by Pi, assuming that the numbers of binding sites for AMP, alkali metals, and Pi are 4, 2, and 4, respectively. The enzyme was inhibited by concentrations of ATP and GTP below 0.1 and 0.25 mM, respectively, whereas activation of the enzyme was observed at ATP and GTP concentrations above 0.4 and 1.5 mM, respectively. These unusual kinetics with respect to ATP and GTP could be also accounted for by assuming 2 inhibitory and 4 activating sites for each ligand.  (+info)

An allosteric synthetic DNA. (3/3161)

Allosteric DNA oligonucleotides are potentially useful diagnostic reagents. Here we develop a model system for the study of allosteric interactions in DNAs. A DNA that binds either Cibacron blue or cholic acid was isolated and partially characterized. Isolation was performed using a multi-stage SELEX. First, short oligos that bind either Cibacron blue or cholic acid were enriched from random oligonucleotide pools. Then, members of the two pools were fused to form longer oligos, which were then selected for theability to bind Cibacron blue columns and elute with cholic acid. One resulting isolate (A22) was studied. Dye- and cholate-binding functions can be separated on sequences from the 5'- and 3'-regions, respectively. Ligand-column affinity assays indicate that each domain binds only its respective ligand. However, the full-length A22 will bind either dye or cholate columns and elute with the other ligand, as if binding by the ligands is mutually exclusive. Furthermore, S1 nuclease protection assays show that Cibacron blue causes a structural change in A22 and that cholic acid inhibits this change. This system will be useful for elucidating mechanisms of allosteric interactions in synthetic DNAs.  (+info)

Heterotropic effectors exert more significant strain on monoligated than on unligated hemoglobin. (4/3161)

The effect of allosteric effectors, such as inositol hexakisphosphate and/or bezafibrate, has been investigated on the unliganded human adult hemoglobin both spectroscopically (employing electronic absorption, circular dichroism, resonance Raman, and x-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopies) and functionally (following the kinetics of the first CO binding step up to a final 4% ligand saturation degree). All data indicate that the unliganded T-state is not perturbed by the interaction with either one or both effectors, suggesting that their functional influence is only exerted when a ligand molecule is bound to the heme. This is confirmed by the observation that CO dissociation from partially liganded hemoglobin ( +info)

Dual allosteric modulation of pacemaker (f) channels by cAMP and voltage in rabbit SA node. (5/3161)

1. A Monod-Whyman-Changeux (MWC) allosteric reaction model was used in the attempt to describe the dual activation of 'pacemaker' f-channel gating subunits by voltage hyperpolarization and cyclic nucleotides. Whole-channel kinetics were described by assuming that channels are composed of two identical subunits gated independently according to the Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) equations. 2. The simple assumption that cAMP binding favours open channels was found to readily explain induction of depolarizing voltage shifts of open probability with a sigmoidal dependence on agonist concentration. 3. Voltage shifts of open probability were measured against cAMP concentration in macropatches of sino-atrial (SA) node cells; model fitting of dose-response relations yielded dissociation constants of 0.0732 and 0.4192 microM for cAMP binding to open and closed channels, respectively. The allosteric model correctly predicted the modification of the pacemaker current (If) time constant curve induced by 10 microM cAMP (13.7 mV depolarizing shift). 4. cAMP shifted deactivation more than activation rate constant curves, according to sigmoidal dose-response relations (maximal shifts of +22.3 and +13.4 mV at 10 microM cAMP, respectively); this feature was fully accounted for by allosteric interactions, and indicated that cAMP acts primarily by 'locking' f-channels in the open configuration. 5. These results provide an interpretation of the dual voltage- and cyclic nucleotide- dependence of f-channel activation.  (+info)

Coupling of the oxygen-linked interaction energy for inositol hexakisphosphate and bezafibrate binding to human HbA0. (6/3161)

The energetics of signal propagation between different functional domains (i.e. the binding sites for O2, inositol hexakisphospate (IHP), and bezafibrate (BZF)) of human HbA0 was analyzed at different heme ligation states and through the use of a stable, partially heme ligated intermediate. Present data allow three main conclusions to be drawn, and namely: (i) IHP and BZF enhance each others binding as the oxygenation proceeds, the coupling free energy going from close to zero in the deoxy state to -3.4 kJ/mol in the oxygenated form; (ii) the simultaneous presence of IHP and BZF stabilizes the hemoglobin T quaternary structure at very low O2 pressures, but as oxygenation proceeds it does not impair the transition toward the R structure, which indeed occurs also under these conditions; (iii) under room air pressure (i.e. pO2 = 150 torr), IHP and BZF together induce the formation of an asymmetric dioxygenated hemoglobin tetramer, whose features appear reminiscent of those suggested for transition state species (i.e. T- and R-like tertiary conformation(s) within a quaternary R-like structure).  (+info)

Allosteric control of three B12-dependent (class II) ribonucleotide reductases. Implications for the evolution of ribonucleotide reduction. (7/3161)

Three separate classes of ribonucleotide reductases are known, each with a distinct protein structure. One common feature of all enzymes is that a single protein generates each of the four deoxyribonucleotides. Class I and III enzymes contain an allosteric substrate specificity site capable of binding effectors (ATP or various deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates) that direct enzyme specificity. Some (but not all) enzymes contain a second allosteric site that binds only ATP or dATP. Binding of dATP to this site inhibits the activity of these enzymes. X-ray crystallography has localized the two sites within the structure of the Escherichia coli class I enzyme and identified effector-binding amino acids. Here, we have studied the regulation of three class II enzymes, one from the archaebacterium Thermoplasma acidophilum and two from eubacteria (Lactobacillus leichmannii and Thermotoga maritima). Each enzyme has an allosteric site that binds ATP or various deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates and that regulates its substrate specificity according to the same rules as for class I and III enzymes. dATP does not inhibit enzyme activity, suggesting the absence of a second active allosteric site. For the L. leichmannii and T. maritima enzymes, binding experiments also indicate the presence of only one allosteric site. Their primary sequences suggest that these enzymes lack the structural requirements for a second site. In contrast, the T. acidophilum enzyme binds dATP at two separate sites, and its sequence contains putative effector-binding amino acids for a second site. The presence of a second site without apparent physiological function leads to the hypothesis that a functional site was present early during the evolution of ribonucleotide reductases, but that its function was lost from the T. acidophilum enzyme. The other two B12 enzymes lost not only the function, but also the structural basis for the site. Also a large subgroup (Ib) of class I enzymes, but none of the investigated class III enzymes, has lost this site. This is further indirect evidence that class II and I enzymes may have arisen by divergent evolution from class III enzymes.  (+info)

Accelerated transcription of PRPS1 in X-linked overactivity of normal human phosphoribosylpyrophosphate synthetase. (8/3161)

Phosphoribosylpyrophosphate (PRPP) synthetase (PRS) superactivity is an X-linked disorder characterized by gout with overproduction of purine nucleotides and uric acid. Study of the two X-linked PRS isoforms (PRS1 and PRS2) in cells from certain affected individuals has shown selectively increased concentrations of structurally normal PRS1 transcript and isoform, suggesting that this form of the disorder involves pretranslational dysregulation of PRPS1 expression and might be more appropriately termed overactivity of normal PRS. We applied Southern and Northern blot analyses and slot blotting of nuclear runoffs to delineate the process underlying aberrant PRPS1 expression in fibroblasts and lymphoblasts from patients with overactivity of normal PRS. Neither PRPS1 amplification nor altered stability or processing of PRS1 mRNA was identified, but PRPS1 transcription was increased relative to GAPDH (3- to 4-fold normal in fibroblasts; 1.9- to 2.4-fold in lymphoblasts) and PRPS2. Nearly coordinate relative increases in each process mediating transfer of genetic information from PRPS1 transcription to maximal PRS1 isoform expression in patient fibroblasts further supported the idea that accelerated PRPS1 transcription is the major aberration leading to PRS1 overexpression. In addition, modulated relative increases in PRS activities at suboptimal Pi concentration and in rates of PRPP and purine nucleotide synthesis in intact patient fibroblasts indicate that despite an intact allosteric mechanism of regulation of PRS activity, PRPS1 transcription is a major determinant of PRPP and purine synthesis. The genetic basis of disordered PRPS1 transcription remains unresolved; normal- and patient-derived PRPS1s share nucleotide sequence identity at least 850 base pairs 5' to the consensus transcription initiation site.  (+info)

HEK-293 cells stably expressing human ...
Allosteric modulation occurs when the functional activity of a protein is altered by the binding of an effector at a site topographically distinct from the orthosteric, active site. Allosteric modulators do not possess intrinsic efficacy but instead augment (positive allosteric modulators) or diminish (negative allosteric modulators; NAMs) the activity of orthosteric agonists (on receptors) or the catalytic transformation of substrates (by enzymes). Therefore, because their action is limited by the concentration of the endogenous ligand, allosteric drugs generally possess important advantages over orthosteric drugs, such as fewer side effects and lower toxicity. Despite much progress having been made in understanding the mechanisms of allosteric modulation, the development of allosteric drugs for therapeutic targets is still very limited, particularly in the enzymology field. This is a stark contrast to our knowledge on enzyme inhibition and the wealth of studies describing enzyme orthosteric ...
Positive allosteric modulators (PAMs), also known as allosteric enhancers or potentiators, induce an amplification of the effect of receptors response to the primary ligand without directly activating the receptor.[2][3] Benzodiazepines principally act as PAMs at the GABAA receptor.[4]. Negative allosteric modulators (NAMs) act at an allosteric site to reduce the responsiveness of the receptor to the endogenous ligand.[3] Ro15-4513 is a NAM at the α1β2γ2 GABAA receptor[citation needed].[nb 1]. Silent allosteric modulators (SAMs), also called neutral or null modulators, occupy the allosteric binding site and behave functionally neutral. Flumazenil can be regarded as such an example. The modulatory activity can be first-order, second-order, or both. Second-order modulators alter the modulatory activity of first-order modulators, whereas first-order modulators do not alter the activity of other allosteric modulators.[citation needed] (−)‐Epigallocatechin‐3‐gallate is one such example of ...
P2X7 is an ATP-gated ion channel that is highly expressed by leukocytes, such as macrophages. Here, it has been demonstrated to be involved in the regulation of various cell death pathways; including apoptosis, pyroptosis, necrosis, and autophagy. However, cell death induction via P2X7 is complex and is reliant upon the nature of the stimulus, the duration of the stimulus, and the cell type investigated. Previous reports state that high extracellular ATP concentrations promote osmotic lysis, but whether positive allosteric modulation of P2X7 in the presence of lower concentrations of ATP condemns cells to the same fate is unknown. In this study, we compared cell death induced by high ATP concentrations, to cell death induced by compound K, a recently identified and potent positive allosteric modulator of P2X7. Based on our observations, we propose that high ATP concentrations induce early cell swelling, loss of mitochondrial membrane potential, plasma membrane rupture, and LDH release. ...
Negative allosteric modulation (also known as allosteric inhibition) occurs when the binding of one ligand decreases the affinity for substrate at other active sites. For example, when 2,3-BPG binds to an allosteric site on hemoglobin, the affinity for oxygen of all subunits decreases. This is when a regulator is absent from the binding site.. Direct thrombin inhibitors provides an excellent example of negative allosteric modulation. Allosteric inhibitors of thrombin have been discovered which could potentially be used as anticoagulants.. Another example is strychnine, a convulsant poison, which acts as an allosteric inhibitor of the glycine receptor. Glycine is a major post-synaptic inhibitory neurotransmitter in mammalian spinal cord and brain stem. Strychnine acts at a separate binding site on the glycine receptor in an allosteric manner; i.e., its binding lowers the affinity of the glycine receptor for glycine. Thus, strychnine inhibits the action of an inhibitory transmitter, leading to ...

VCP171 is an AR positive allosteric modulator. VCP171 elicited positive allosteric effects on the binding affinity of orthosteric agonists at both the rat and human A1 -receptors that showed clear probe dependence.
The theoretical basis for using radioligand binding and pharmacological techniques to estimate the dissociation constants of drugs which interact allosterically with receptors is described. This theory predicts that an allosteric ligand changes the affinity of another ligand which binds at the primary recognition site on the receptor complex without affecting the binding capacity of the primary ligand. The magnitude of this effect depends on the amount of cooperativity (positive or negative) between the binding of ligands at the allosteric and primary recognition sites. It is possible to estimate the dissociation constant of an allosteric ligand by measuring its effect on the binding of a radioligand at a fixed concentration. In this situation, the dissociation constant of the allosteric ligand can be calculated from the concentration of ligand which causes half of its maximal effect on radioligand binding. The effects of an allosteric ligand on the pharmacological responses to an agonist can be ...

AU - Osmulski, Pawel A.. AU - Jankowska, Elzbieta. PY - 2014/8. Y1 - 2014/8. N2 - Proteasome is a proteolytic factory that constitutes an essential part of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. The involvement of proteasome in regulation of all major aspects of cellular physiology makes it an attractive drug target. So far, only inhibitors of the proteasome entered the clinic as anti-cancer drugs. However, proteasome regulators may also be useful for treatment of inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. We established in our previous studies that the peptide Tat2, comprising the basic domain of HIV-1 Tat protein: R49KKRRQRR56, supplemented with Q66DPI 69 fragment, inhibits the 20S proteasome in a noncompetitive manner. Mechanism of Tat2 likely involves allosteric regulation because it competes with ...
BioAssay record AID 390611 submitted by ChEMBL: Modulation of human adenosine A1 receptor expressed in CHO-K1 cells assessed as allosteric effect on [125I]ABA dissociation.
The main objective when analyzing equilibrium data are to identify elements that respond to external forces, and to quantify their interactions with the catalytic unit, which in ion channels is the conducting pore. Quaternary descriptions of enzyme function have been useful in studying regulatory proteins-most notably hemoglobin, widely considered the poster child of protein allosteric theory. Modeling hemoglobin using sophisticated variants of the classical Monod-Wyman-Changeux (MWC) equation (Monod et al., 1965) has achieved impressive insight into its allosteric machinery (Eaton et al., 2007). A K+ channel whose regulation, at a basic level, is formulaically similar to that of hemoglobin (though mechanistically distinct), is the large-conductance voltage- and Ca2+-dependent (BK) channel. The BK channel derives its voltage dependence from four voltage-sensing (J) domains located within the membrane electric field, and also to a small degree from the pore (L) itself. Calcium sensors (K) are ...
Positive allosteric modulators of the ionotropic glutamate receptor-2 (GluA2) are promising compounds for the treatment of cognitive disorders, e.g. Alzheimers disease. These modulators bind within the dimer interface of the LBD (ligand-binding domain) and stabilize the agonist-bound conformation slowing receptor desensitization and/or deactivation. In the present study, we employ isothermal titration calorimetry to determine binding affinities and thermodynamic details of binding of modulators of GluA2. A mutant of the LBD of GluA2 (LBD-L483Y-N754S) that forms a stable dimer in solution was used. The potent GluA2 modulator BPAM-97 was used as a reference compound. Evidence that BPAM-97 binds in the same pocket as the well-known GluA2 modulator cyclothiazide was obtained from X-ray structures. The LBD-L483Y-N754S:BPAM-97 complex has a Kd of 5.6 μM (ΔH=−4.9 kcal/mol, −TΔS=−2.3 kcal/mol; where 1 kcal≈4.187 kJ). BPAM-97 was used in a displacement assay to determine a Kd of 0.46 mM ...

Allosteric coupling describes a reciprocal process whereby G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) relay ligand-induced conformational changes from the extracellular binding pocket to the intracellular signaling surface. Therefore, GPCR activation is sensitive to both the type of extracellular ligand and intracellular signaling protein. We hypothesized that ligand-specific allosteric coupling may result in preferential (i.e., biased) engagement of downstream effectors. However, the structural basis underlying ligand-dependent control of this essential allosteric mechanism is poorly understood. Here, we show that two sets of extended muscarinic acetylcholine receptor M(1) agonists, which only differ in linker length, progressively constrain receptor signaling. We demonstrate that stepwise shortening of their chemical linker gradually hampers binding pocket closure, resulting in divergent coupling to distinct G-protein families. Our data provide an experimental strategy for the design of ligands with ...

A molecule that treats multiple age-related diseases would have a major impact on global health and economics. The SIRT1 deacetylase has drawn attention in this regard as a target for drug design. Yet controversy exists around the mechanism of sirtuin-activating compounds (STACs). We found that specific hydrophobic motifs found in SIRT1 substrates such as PGC-1α and FOXO3a facilitate SIRT1 activation by STACs. A single amino acid in SIRT1, Glu230, located in a structured N-terminal domain, was critical for activation by all previously reported STAC scaffolds and a new class of chemically distinct activators. In primary cells reconstituted with activation-defective SIRT1, the metabolic effects of STACs were blocked. Thus, SIRT1 can be directly activated through an allosteric mechanism common to chemically diverse STACs. ...
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Hilde Hambro.. : In mechanics the forces of interaction between defects in an elastic solid are well understood. Just as defects produce local elastic fields in a solid, proteins binding to DNA also deform it locally. Since DNA behaves like an elastic rod at scales of a few tens of nanometers, we expect that if two proteins bind to DNA separated by a distance r then their deformation fields will overlap and lead to an interaction energy that depends on r. This problem has not been theoretically addressed so far, but there is experimental evidence of the interaction. For example, gene expression, which depends on RNA polymerase binding affinity to DNA , is a function of the proximity of LacR and RNA polymerase. These effects are called allosteric interactions on DNA . In this talk we will use a birod model of DNA to study how proteins deform it locally, and how this leads to allosteric interactions between them. Similar elastic deformations ...
Allosteric modulation of adenosine A1 receptors (A1ARs) offers a novel therapeutic approach for the treatment of numerous central and peripheral disorders. However, despite decades of research, there is a relative paucity of structural information regarding the A1AR allosteric site and mechanisms governing cooperativity with orthosteric ligands. We combined alanine-scanning mutagenesis of the A1AR second extracellular loop (ECL2) with radioligand binding and functional interaction assays to quantify effects on allosteric ligand affinity, cooperativity and efficacy. Docking and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were performed using an A1AR homology model based on an agonist-bound A2AAR structure. Substitution of E172ECL2 for alanine reduced the affinity of the allosteric modulators, PD81723 and VCP171, for the unoccupied A1AR. Residues involved in cooperativity with the orthosteric agonist, NECA, were different between PD81723 and VCP171; positive cooperativity between PD81723 and NECA was ...

The Adairs constants, obtained from the oxygen binding isotherms, show that at the first step of oxygenation normal hemoglobin and DecHb have a very similar oxygen affinity. In DecHb negative binding cooperativity is present at the second step of oxygenation, which has an affinity 27 times lower than at the ...
ITK (interleukin-2-inducible T-cell kinase) is a critical component of signal transduction in T-cells and has a well-validated role in their proliferation, cytokine release and chemotaxis. ITK is an attractive target for the treatment of T-cell-mediated inflammatory diseases. In the present study we describe the discovery of kinase inhibitors that preferentially bind to an allosteric pocket of ITK. The novel ITK allosteric site was characterized by NMR, surface plasmon resonance, isothermal titration calorimetry, enzymology and X-ray crystallography. Initial screening hits bound to both the allosteric pocket and the ATP site. Successful lead optimization was achieved by improving the contribution of the allosteric component to the overall inhibition. NMR competition experiments demonstrated that the dual-site binders showed higher affinity for the allosteric site compared with the ATP site. Moreover, an optimized inhibitor displayed non-competitive inhibition with respect to ATP as shown by ...

Positive allosteric modulation of the ionotropic glutamate receptor GluA2 presents a potential treatment of cognitive disorders, for example, Alzheimers disease.

It is informative to calculate the ratio of binding affinities for pairs of different ternary complexes, because it reveals how allosteric couplings between sites vary with ligand and coregulator peptide identity. The free energy of binding a coregulator peptide to a GR-ligand complex is given by ΔG = ΔGP + ΔgLP + ΔgLA + ΔgbP. It follows that the difference in ΔG between two different GR-ligand complexes is ΔΔG = −RT ln[Ka(Lm, Pi)/Ka(Ln, Pi)] = ΔΔgLP + ΔΔgLA. However, the minor variation in pm (i.e., the relative population of active helix 12 conformations detected by NMR) between the different ternary complexes indicates that the variation ΔΔgLA contributes relatively little to variations in coregulator-binding affinity (fig. S5), which instead is dominated by ΔΔgLP. Thus, the SPR results can be interpreted to extract differences between ligands in their strength of allosteric coupling to coregulator binding, ΔΔgLP.. Comparing complexes with different ligands but the same ...
cAMP (adenosine 3,5-cyclic monophosphate) is a ubiquitous second messenger that activates a multitude of essential cellular responses. Two key receptors for cAMP in eukaryotes are protein kinase A (PKA) and the exchange protein directly activated by cAMP (EPAC), which is a recently discovered guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for the small GTPases Rap1 and Rap2. Previous attempts to investigate the mechanism of allosteric activation of eukaryotic cAMP-binding domains (CBDs) at atomic or residue resolution have been hampered by the instability of the apo form, which requires the use of mixed apo/holo systems, that have provided only a partial picture of the CBD apo state and of the allosteric networks controlled by cAMP. Here, we show that, unlike other eukaryotic CBDs, both apo and cAMP-bound states of the EPAC1 CBD are stable under our experimental conditions, providing a unique opportunity to define at an unprecedented level of detail the allosteric interactions linking two critical ...

The GLP-1R is a major target for the treatment and management of type II diabetes but peptides, despite the approval of several drugs (exenatide and liraglutide), do not provide ideal therapeutics because their use is complicated by the route of administration. This has driven the search for low molecular weight, orally active compounds that activate or augment GLP-1R signaling as the idealized therapeutic drug. Recent drug discovery efforts for the GLP-1R have focused on targeting sites for allosteric modulation. Allosteric interactions are often complex because ligands can alter the biological properties of the endogenous ligand by modulating the affinity and/or efficacy as well as having the potential to exhibit their own agonism. This can be complicated if there are multiple endogenous ligands (as is the case for the GLP-1R), because the allosteric interaction can vary with the nature of the orthosteric ligand, a property termed probe dependence (May et al., 2007b). These allosteric ...
The situation under which substrate cooperativity is apparent only in the presence of an inhibitor has been investigated. When a substrate and an inhibitor bind independently to a cooperative enzyme that conforms to the concerted Monod-Wyman-Changeux model, each of the two ligands must induce intersubunit transitions in the protein molecule in order to have their allosteric effects coupled to one another. The inhibitor exerts a heterotropic influence on the saturation function of the substrate and enhances the otherwise recondite homotropic effect of the latter. If the ligands bind competitively to the enzyme, however, intersubunit transitions in the enzyme need be induced only by the inhibitor. A sigmoidal substrate saturation curve is then obtained as a result of displacement of the inhibitor from the enzyme by the substrate. In this mechanism, the competitive inhibitor participates as a cofactor required for the expression of substrate cooperativity and the familiar ability of regulatory ...
Jean-Pierre Changeux is Honorary Professor at the Collège de France & Pasteur Institute Paris and International Faculty, Kavli Institute for Brain & Mind, University of California San Diego. At the advent of the era of molecular biology, Jean-Pierre Changeux pioneered the study of the role of conformational changes linking topographically distinct sites in regulatory processes. His PhD studies, carried under the supervision of Jacques Monod, provided the experimental and conceptual bases for the formal model of allosteric interactions in regulatory proteins, subsequently put forward in a joint paper that had become one of the most quoted papers of the scientific literature. Throughout a long career, Changeux has consistently built upon and extended his early theory, to spawn many new and flourishing fields of investigation..

Allosteric regulation provides highly specific ligand recognition and signaling by transmembrane protein receptors. Unlike functions of protein molecular machines that rely on large-scale conformational transitions, signal transduction in receptors appears to be mediated by more subtle structural motions that are difficult to identify. We describe a theoretical model for allosteric regulation in receptors that addresses a fundamental riddle of signaling: What are the structural origins of the receptor agonism (specific signaling response to ligand binding)? The model suggests that different signaling pathways in bovine rhodopsin or human beta(2)-adrenergic receptor can be mediated by specific structural motions in the receptors. We discuss implications for understanding the receptor agonism, particularly the recently observed biased agonism (selected activation of specific signaling pathways), and for developing rational structure-based drug-design strategies. ...
1.A.10 The Glutamate-gated Ion Channel (GIC) Family of Neurotransmitter Receptors. Members of the GIC family are homo or heterotetrameric complexes in which each of the 4 subunits is of 800-1000 amino acyl residues in length (Mayer, 2006) (see Simeone et al. 2004 for a review). They have a modular architecture with four domains: the intracellular C-terminal domain (CTD) that is involved in synaptic targeting, the transmembrane domain (TMD) that forms the ion channel, the membrane-proximal ligand-binding domain (LBD) that binds agonists such as L-glutamate, and the distal N-terminal domain (NTD). The extracellular portion, comprised of the LBD and NTD, is loosely arranged, mediating complex allosteric regulation (Krieger et al. 2015). The structures of these receptor-channels have been reviewed with emphasis on their function and pharmacology (Regan et al. 2015). A hydrophobic box in both AMPA and NMDA receptors plays a role in channel desensitization (Alsaloum et al. 2016). Activation and ...

Metabolism controls gene expression through allosteric interactions between metabolites and transcription factors. These interactions are usually measured with in vitro assays, but there are no methods to identify them at a genome-scale in vivo. Here we show that dynamic transcriptome and metabolome data identify metabolites that control transcription factors in E. coli. By switching an E. coli culture between starvation and growth, we induce strong metabolite concentration changes and gene expression changes. Using Network Component Analysis we calculate the activities of 209 transcriptional regulators and correlate them with metabolites. This approach captures, for instance, the in vivo kinetics of CRP regulation by cyclic-AMP. By testing correlations between all pairs of transcription factors and metabolites, we predict putative effectors of 71 transcription factors, and validate five interactions in vitro. These results show that combining transcriptomics and metabolomics generates hypotheses about

General anesthetics bind reversibly to ion channels, modifying their global conformational distributions, but the underlying atomic mechanisms are not completely known. We examine this issue by way of the model protein Gloeobacter violaceous ligand-gated ion channel (GLIC) using computational molecular dynamics, with a coarse-grained model to enhance sampling. We find that in flooding simulations, both propofol and a generic particle localize to the crystallographic transmembrane anesthetic binding region, and that propofol also localizes to an extracellular region shared with the crystallographic ketamine binding site. Subsequent simulations to probe these binding modes in greater detail demonstrate that ligand binding induces structural asymmetry in GLIC. Consequently, we employ residue interaction correlation analysis to describe the internal allosteric network underlying the coupling of ligand and distant effector sites necessary for conformational change. Overall, the results suggest that the same
Barbiturates have special uses and are organized into 4 classes: ultrashort-, short-, intermediate- and long-acting. Empirically SARs of barbiturants are based on thousands of (animal) tested compounds.They have shown that R and R´ may not be H in position 5 (see figure 8). Also, position 5 confer sedative-hypnotic properties.[10] Generally alkyl branching in position 5 means less lipid solubility and less activity. Unsaturation show less activity in position 5 and alicyclic and aromatic rings show less potency. Polar substiuents (-NH2, -OH, -COOH) will decrease lipid solubility but it will also eliminate activity. R´´ in position 1 is usually, H but CH3 in that position yields less lipid solubility and duration. Exchanging S for O atom in position 2 produces thiobarbiturates, which are more lipid-soluble than the oxybarbiturates. In general, the more lipid-soluble the barbiturate, the more rapid its onset, the shorter its duration and the greater the degree of hypnotic activity. Barbiturates ...
Recent evidence has raised in discussion the possibility that cannabidiol can act as a negative allosteric modulator of the cannabinoid type 1 receptor. Here we have used computational methods to study the modulation exerted by cannabidiol on the effects of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol in the cannabinoid receptor type 1 and the possibility of direct receptor blockade. We propose a putative allosteric binding site that is located in the N-terminal region of receptor, partially overlapping the orthosteric binding site. Molecular dynamics simulations reveled a coordinated movement involving the outward rotation of helixes 1 and 2 and subsequent expansion of the orthosteric binding site upon cannabidiol binding. Finally, changes in the cytoplasmic region and high helix 8 mobility were related to impaired receptor internalization. Together, these results offer a possible explanation to how cannabidiol can directly modulate effects of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol on the cannabinoid receptor type 1.

N2 - Background: Ribozymes can function as allosteric enzymes that undergo a conformational change upon ligand binding to a site other than the active site. Although allosteric ribozymes are not known to exist in nature, nucleic acids appear to be well suited to display such advanced forms of kinetic control. Current research explores the mechanisms of allosteric ribozymes as well as the strategies and methods that can be used to create new controllable enzymes. Results: In this study, we exploit the modular nature of certain functional RNAs to engineer allosteric ribozymes that are activated by flavin mononucleotide (FMN) or theophylline. By joining an FMN- or theophylline-binding domain to a hammerhead ribozyme by different stem II elements, we have identified a minimal connective bridge comprised of a G·U ...

AU - Fang, Jie. AU - Stanley, Charles A.. PY - 2001/3/23. Y1 - 2001/3/23. N2 - Glutamate dehydrogenase is found in all organisms and catalyses the oxidative deamination of L-glutamate to 2-oxoglutarate. However, only animal GDH utilizes both NAD(H) or NADP(H) with comparable efficacy and exhibits a complex pattern of allosteric inhibition by a wide variety of small molecules. The major allosteric inhibitors are GTP and NADH and the two main allosteric activators are ADP and NAD+. The structures presented here have refined and modified the previous structural model of allosteric regulation inferred from the original boGDH·NADH·GLU·GTP complex. The boGDH·NAD+·α-KG complex structure clearly demonstrates that the second coenzyme-binding site lies directly under the pivot helix of the NAD+ binding domain. In ...

Both kinases suppress SFKs by selectively phosphorylating their consensus C-terminal regulatory tyrosine. In addition to phosphorylation, CHK can suppress SFKs by a unique non-catalytic inhibitory mechanism that involves tight binding of CHK to SFKs to form stable complexes. In this review, we discuss how allosteric regulators, phosphorylation, and inter-domain interactions interplay to govern the activity of CSK and CHK and their ability to inhibit SFKs. In particular, based ...
Our lab is interested in the biology and therapeutic potential of targeting Class C G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). We are predominantly focussed on two class members: metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGlu5) and the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR). mGlu5 is an exciting new target for schizophrenia, Alzheimers disease, autism spectrum disorders and depression, whereas modulators of the CaSR are already in the clinic for hyperparathyroidism and are putative therapeutics for osteoporosis, calcium handling disorders, asthma and idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. We are pursuing a novel class of therapeutics, called allosteric modulators, to selectively target these receptors. To facilitate rational drug design and discovery efforts, a better understanding of the functional consequences and structural basis of allosteric modulation is needed.. Available projects examine ...

Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are ligand-gated ion channels found in the central and peripheral nervous systems. They regulate neurotransmitter release throughout the CNS and facilitate fast synaptic transmission. nAChRs have been implicated in autism, depression, schizophrenia, and nicotine addiction, although not many medications targeting the cholinergic system are available. Positive allosteric modulation is a developing method of pharmacological treatment. Des-formyflustrabromine (dFBr), is a positive allosteric modulator (PAM) of α4β2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Galantamine is both and acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI) and a PAM that is used in the treatment of Alzheimers disease (AD).. Using two-electrode voltage clamp electrophysiology (TEVC), we investigated the selectivity of dFBr with a series of heteromeric nicotinc receptors. We found that dFBr does not potentiate α3β4, α3β2, or α4β4 receptors. In addition, our results indicate that both α4 and β2 ...

Gain and lack of function tests were performed to verify the metastatic part of PIG3 in vitro also to explore the system involved with its oncogenic part in NSCLC metastasis. The outcomes demonstrated that PIG3 knockdown inhibited the LY2090314 migration and invasion capability of NSCLC cells considerably, and reduced paxillin, phospho\focal adhesion kinase (FAK) and phospho\Src kinase manifestation, while its overexpression led to the opposite results. Blocking FAK using its inhibitor reverses PIG3 overexpression\induced cell motility in NSCLC cells, indicating that PIG3 improved cell metastasis through the FAK/Src/paxillin pathway. Furthermore, PIG3 silencing sensitized NSCLC cells to FAK inhibitor. To conclude, our data exposed a job for PIG3 in inducing LUAD metastasis, and its own role as a fresh LY2090314 FAK ...
Quantitative measurement of intramolecular and intermolecular interactions in protein structure is an elusive task, not easy to address experimentally. The phenomenon denoted ‘energetic coupling’ describes short- and long-range interactions between two residues in a protein system. A powerful method to identify and quantitatively characterize long-range interactions and allosteric networks in proteins or protein–ligand complexes is called double-mutant cycles analysis. In this review we describe the thermodynamic principles and basic equations that underlie the double mutant cycle methodology, its fields of application and latest employments, and caveats and pitfalls that the experimentalists must consider. In particular, we show how double mutant cycles can be a powerful tool to investigate allosteric mechanisms in protein binding reactions as well as elusive states in protein folding pathways.
A combined systematic alanine scanning and molecular modelling approach reveals the molecular basis for an allosteric inhibition mechanism of K+-flux gating in K2P channels.
It is rare that an unpublished piece of research or theory remains significant after half a century. It is also a wonderful example of the boundless curiosity of the late Francis Crick. A previously unpublished work by Francis Crick and Jeffries Wyman from 1965 is now available, together with Jean-Pierre Changeuxs recollections on the origins of the theory of Allostery and several important texts by various authors on the subject. These are part of a special issue of the Journal of Molecular Biology (JMB) published at the occasion of a Pasteur/EMBO Conference on Allosteric Interactions in Cell Signaling and Regulation to be held at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, May 14-17, 2013, to mark a half-century of research on this subject.. Early in 1963 an influential theory was published by Jacques Monod, Jean-Pierre Changeux and François Jacob in JMB to explain how binding of a regulatory molecule could influence the binding of a completely different kind of molecule at topographically distinct ...
Gabather has completed in vitro and in vivo experiments on the substances GT-001 - GT-006. The substances were tested in models for psychosis and anxiety, with very promising general results such as none of the substances having sedative side effects. The main focus has been on GT-002, which is generating promising results as a potential antipsychotic. In 2015 Gabather signed a research agreement with UNSW (University of New South Wales, Australia), and one of the resulting studies show that GT-002 acts as a positive allosteric modulator on the GabaA receptor. The difference from other positive allosteric modulators is that GT-002 does not affect the neuron population, which minimizes the risk of sedative or convulsive side effects. Further in-vitro studies show that GT-002 is also a highly selective substance. ...
Strictly speaking the relationship between IR and ligand shows complex allosteric properties. This was indicated with the use of a Scatchard plots which identified that the measurement of the ratio of IR bound ligand to unbound ligand does not follow a linear relationship with respect to changes in the concentration of IR bound ligand, suggesting that the IR and its respective ligand share a relationship of cooperative binding.[10] Furthermore, the observation that the rate of IR-ligand dissociation is accelerated upon addition of unbound ligand implies that the nature of this cooperation is negative; said differently, that the initial binding of ligand to the IR inhibits further binding to its second active site - exhibition of allosteric inhibition.[10] Although the precise binding mechanism of IR and its ligand has not yet been elucidated structurally, as identified using a systems biology approach, biologically relevant prediction of the IR-ligand kinetics (insulin/IGF-I) has been identified ...

On the basis of its MEK inhibitory activity, E6201 was shown here to be an ATP-competitive MEK inhibitor that is effective against BRAF-V600E melanoma in a preclinical setting. Furthermore, we showed that E6201 is effective in a preclinical model against BRAF-V600E melanoma harboring the MEK1-C121S mutation. Almost all of the MEK inhibitors previously reported are allosteric inhibitors, not ATP-competitive inhibitors (37). Our docking simulation showed that E6201 and selumetinib bind to different sites when they dock with MEK. These results suggest that the inhibitory mode of action of E6201 is different from that of allosteric MEK inhibitors and that E6201 merits further investigation in a clinical setting against both MEK-WT melanomas and melanomas harboring MEK with mutations at the allosteric site.. The MEK1-C121S mutation, which confers resistance to vemurafenib, increases MEK activity independently from BRAF and also confers resistance to the allosteric MEK inhibitor selumetinib (12). Our ...
Significant advances have been made over recent years in our understanding of the tremendous complexity underlying the function of the human brain, in particular gaining insight into the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity which are key to developmental, adaptive and learning processes. Glutamate, the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS), is of critical importance to these processes, acting at chemical synapses on two major classes of receptors - the metabotropic family of G-protein coupled receptors (mGluRs 1-8), and ionotropic family of ion channel forming receptors (iGluRs). The latter comprises the α-amino-3-hydroxyl-5-methyl-4-isoxazole-propionic acid (AMPA), N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) and kainate receptors. Despite similarities shared within this ion channel family, there exist clear structural and pharmacological differences which underlie their individual modes of action. This chapter provides a case history of ion channel lead optimisation, discusses ...

Adult strychnine-sensitive glycine-inhibited chloride (anion selective) heteropentameric channel (GlyR; GLRA1) consisting of α1- and β-subunits (Cascio, 2004; Sivilotti, 2010). Ivermectin potentiates glycine-induced channel activation (Wang and Lynch, 2012). Molecular sites for the positive allosteric modulation of glycine receptors by endocannabinoids have been identified (Yévenes and Zeilhofer, 2011). Different subunits contribute asymmetrically to channel conductances via residues in the extracellular domain (Moroni et al., 2011; Xiong et al., 2012). Dominant and recessive mutations in GLRA1 are the major causes of hyperekplexia or startle disease (Gimenez et al., 2012). Open channel 3-d structures are known (Mowrey et al. 2013). Desensitization is regulated by interactions between the second and third transmembrane segments which affect the ion channel lumen near its intracellular end. The GABAAR and GlyR pore blocker, picrotoxin (TC# 8.C.1), prevents desensitization (Gielen et al. 2015). ...

Structural pathways are important because they provide insight into signaling mechanisms, help understand the mechanism of disease-related mutations, and assist in drug discovery. Ozbabacan et al. construct the IL-1 structural pathway and map oncogenic mutations and SNPs. They show that modeling of protein-protein interactions on a large scale can provide accurate, structural atom-level detail of signaling pathways in the human cell and help delineate the mechanism through which a mutation leads to disease.. Numerous approaches have been undertaken over the last 50 years in an effort to explain allostery. Chung-Jung Tsai and Ruth Nussinov survey points of view on allostery in a Perspective, synthesizing them via a mathematical model in order to obtain a coherent understanding of the question of how allostery works. They address this question from three standpoints: thermodynamics, free energy landscape of population shift, and structure; all with exactly the same allosteric descriptors.. ...

Allosteric MEK inhibitors represent the first pharmacologic inhibitors of the RAS-RAF-MEK-ERK pathway, with CI-1040 being the first to be tested in human clinical trials (13). Although the human efficacy of CI-1040 was likely limited due to poor drug-like properties and a lack of potency, this inhibitor provided preclinical proof-of-concept that targeting MEK can result in antitumor activity in preclinical models (14). This work led to the development of more potent allosteric inhibitors with improved properties, such as PD0325901 and ARRY142886/AZD6244, as well as a host of others that have demonstrated therapeutic efficacy in human clinical trials (reviewed in ref. 15). The most advanced MEK inhibitor, trametinib, was recently approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma expressing BRAFV600E/K. In a phase III trial in patients with metastatic melanoma whose tumors express BRAFV600E/K, trametinib treatment resulted in a 22% response rate and 4.8 months median progression-free survival, ...
immune Uncategorized 31430-18-9, FLJ12455 Glutamate receptors are essential potential medication targets for cognitive enhancement and the treating schizophrenia partly because theyre the most prevalent excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in the vertebrate central anxious program. GluA2 and GluA3 flop isoforms of AMPA receptors. Particular hydrogen bonding patterns can clarify the choice for the flop isoform. This consists of a bidentate hydrogen bonding design between PEPA and N754 of the flop isoforms of GluA2 and GluA3 (the corresponding placement in the flip isoform can be S754). Assessment with additional allosteric modulators offers a framework for the advancement of fresh allosteric modulators with choices for either the flip or flop isoforms. Furthermore to interactions with N/S754, particular interactions of the sulfonamide with conserved residues in the binding site are features of several allosteric modulators. These, in mixture, with adjustable interactions with five subsites on ...
The targeting of protein kinases represents an opportunity and challenge in cancer treatment. Some 2% of transcribed genes are kinases, many implicated in tumorigenesis and all potentially druggable.. My research encompasses various cancer associated kinases, including PKC, PKN, mTOR and EGFR family tyrosine kinases. In particular, my work on PKC and the HER family of tyrosine kinase growth factor receptors has revealed that inhibitors can have surprising allosteric effects on kinase function with significant implications for therapy.. My group is currently examining the role of the PKN kinases in malignant progression. PKN kinases are effectors of Rho family GTPases, regulating cell shape, adhesion and motility. Our studies on the role for PKN family members in mammalian development has provided significant insight; we have described a key non-redundant role for the PKN2 isoform in the regulation of embryo morphogenesis, cell proliferation and migration; phenotypes critically linked to cancer ...

Launch Reproducibility has turned into a subject of concern in biomedical analysis1 significantly,2. Researchers recognize that they neglect to reproduce their very own tests also, aside from those of their co-workers around the world3. When tests a potential anticancer medication, a book and potent allosteric inhibitor particular for the glutaminase-1 enzyme (EC 3.5.1.2), we initially experienced an identical irreproducibility. Our focus on metabolomics led us to experiments that then produced an explanation for the lack of reproducibility, and employed a more comprehensive assay development approach which we believe can be of benefit for the scientific community. Indeed, as we go on to discuss, the use of a GLS1 inhibitor is usually less important here than the notion that culture ...
One family, ccdAB, interferes with replication and transcription via interactions with gyrase. This family has been extensively studied in the last five years, leading to a detailed understanding on how the toxin CcdB poisons DNA-bound-gyrase and how the intrinsically disordered domain of the antitoxin CcdA is able to rejuvenated CcdB-poisoned gyrase. The latter proves to be an example on how intrinsically disordered proteins act in mechanistic terms and why intrinsic disorder is required in certain biochemical contexts.. Another family of TA modules, phd/doc, inhibit translation by interfering with the action of the ribosome. The phd/doc module of bacteriophage P1 is being used to study transcription regulation by conditional co-operativity. This is a novel regulatory mechanism used by bacteria that involves allosteric communication between two (partly) disordered protein domains. While such a form of allostery has been predicted based on theoretical arguments, our work provided the first ...
