The level of protein structure in which combinations of secondary protein structures (alpha helices, beta sheets, loop regions, and motifs) pack together to form folded shapes called domains. Disulfide bridges between cysteines in two different parts of the polypeptide chain along with other interactions between the chains play a role in the formation and stabilization of tertiary structure. Small proteins usually consist of only one domain but larger proteins may contain a number of domains connected by segments of polypeptide chain which lack regular secondary structure.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

The bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) assay can be used as an indicator of molecular approximation and/or interaction. A significant resonance energy transfer signal is generated when the acceptor, having the appropriate spectral overlap with the donor emission, is approximated with the donor. In the example provided, proteins tagged with bioluminescent Renilla luciferase (Rlu) as donor and yellow fluorescent protein (YFP) as acceptor were co-expressed in cells. This pair of donor and acceptor have an approximate Förster distance of 4.4 nm, providing the optimal working distance (Dacres et al., 2010). This technique can be used to explore the time-course of specific molecular interactions that occur in living cells., 生物发光共振能量转移(BRET)测定可以用作分子近似和/或相互作用的指标。 当具有与供体发射的适当光谱重叠的受体与供体近似时,产生显着的共振能量转移信号。 在所提供的例子中
Proteins are the elementary machinery of life, and their functions are carried out mostly by molecular interactions. Among those interactions, protein-protein interactions (PPIs) are the most important as they participate in or mediate all essential biological processes. However, many common methods for PPI investigations are slightly unreliable and suffer from various limitations, especially in the studies of dynamic PPIs. To solve this problem, a method called Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer (BRET) was developed about seventeen years ago. Since then, BRET has evolved into a whole class of methods that can be used to survey virtually any kinds of PPIs. Compared to many traditional methods, BRET is highly sensitive, reliable, easy to perform, and relatively inexpensive. However, most importantly, it can be done in vivo and allows the real-time monitoring of dynamic PPIs with the easily detectable light signal, which is extremely valuable for the PPI functional research. This review will take a
The mild neuroinflammation hypothesis of schizophrenia was introduced by Bechter in 2001.It has been hypothesized that a hypofunction of glutamatergic signaling via N-methyl-n-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) and hyperactivation of dopamine D2 receptors play a role in schizophrenia. The triplet puzzle theory states that sets of triplet amino acid homologies guide two different receptors towards each other and contributes to the formation of a receptor heteromer. It is therefore proposed that putative NMDAR- C-C chemokine receptor type 2 (CCR2), NMDAR- C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4) and NMDAR- Interleukin 1 receptor type II (IL1R2) heteromers can be formed in the neuronal networks in mild neuroinflammation due to demonstration of Gly-Leu-Leu (GLL), Val-Ser-Thr (VST) and/or Ser-Val-Ser (SVS) amino acid homologies between these receptor protomers. This molecular process may underlie the ability to produce symptoms of schizophrenia in mild neuroinflammation. In this state volume transmission is
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are well recognized as being able to activate several signaling pathways through the activation of different G proteins as well as other signaling proteins such as beta-arrestins. Therefore, understanding how such multiple GPCR-mediated signaling can be integrated constitute an important aspect. Here, we applied bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) to shed more light on the G protein coupling profile of trypsin receptor, or protease-activated receptor 2 (PAR2), and its interaction with beta-arrestin1. Using YFP and Rluc fusion constructs expressed in COS-7 cells, BRET data revealed a pre-assembly of PAR2 with both Galphai1 and Galphao and a rapid and transient activation of these G proteins upon receptor activation. In contrast, no preassembly of PAR2 with Galpha12 could be detected and their physical association can be measured with a very slow and sustained kinetics similar to that of beta-arrestin1 recruitment. These data demonstrate the coupling of
Bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) is a well-established method for investigating protein-protein interactions. Here we present a BRET approach to monitor ligand binding to G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) on the surface of living cells made possible by the use of fluorescent ligands in combination with a bioluminescent protein (NanoLuc) that can be readily expressed on the N terminus of GPCRs.. ...
V. Viviani et al. [Biochemistry 38 (1999) 8271] were the first to succeed in cloning the red-emitting enzyme from the South American railroad worm, which is the only bioluminescent organism known to emit a red-colored light. The application of red bioluminescence has been our goal because the transmittance of longer-wavelength light is superior to that of the other colors for visualization of biological functions in living cells. Now, different color luciferases, which emit with wavelength maxima ranging from 400 to 630 nm, are available and are being used. For example, based on different color luciferases, Nakajima et al. developed a tricolor reporter in vitro assay system based on these different color luciferases in which the expression of three genes can be monitored simultaneously. On the other hand, bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) is a natural phenomenon caused by the intermolecular interaction between a bioluminescent protein and a fluorophore on a second protein, ...
Products for analysis of protein interactions include pull-down assays, and BRET-based and complementation reporter based systems. GST pull-down systems are used in traditional methods based on cell extracts and/or cell free expression. The HaloTag® Mammalian Pull-Down System is used to isolate and identify intracellular protein complexes from mammalian cells. NanoBRET™ technology uses bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) in a proximity-based assay that detects protein interactions by measuring energy transfer from a bioluminescent protein donor to a fluorescent protein acceptor. NanoBiT assays rely on a two-subunit system based on NanoLuc® luciferase that can be used for intracellular detection of protein:protein interactions. The subunits are fused to proteins of interest, forming a functional enzyme that generates a bright, luminescent signal when the proteins interact.
Bouvier also pioneered the use of bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) for the study of protein-protein interactions and signalling activity in living cells. In addition to the development of screening assays that are now used for drug discovery, this methodology revealed the oligomeric nature of GPCRs and the role of higher order protein complexes in the spatio-temporal regulation of signal transduction under normal and pathological conditions. These tools and new concepts provide the foundation to elucidate how the macromolecular architecture and arrangement of signalling molecules provide the selectivity and fidelity to assure the appropriate propagation of information in cells ...
In cells expressing both the insulin receptor isoform A (IRA) and the insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF1R), the presence of hybrid receptors, made up of an αβ-IRA chain associated with an αβ-IGF1R chain, has been demonstrated. These heterodimers are found in normal cells, and they also seem to play crucial roles in a number of cancers. However, they remain difficult to study, due to the concomitant presence of IRA and IGF1R homodimers. Using bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET), we have developed assays to specifically monitor the activation state of IRA/IGF1R hybrids, both in vitro and in living cells. The first assay allowed the study of ligand-induced conformational changes within hybrid receptors purified from cells cotransfected with one type of receptor fused to Renilla reniformis luciferase (Rluc), and the other type of receptor fused to yellow fluorescent protein (YFP). In these conditions, only hybrid receptors were BRET-competent. In the second assay, the ...

Adrenergic receptors (ARs) mediate the physiological effects of epinephrine and norepinephrine. There are nine AR subtypes, with three subfamilies (α1, α2, and β) comprised of three subtypes each. These receptors are Family A (rhodopsin-like) GPCRs, in contrast to the GABAB and T1R taste receptors, which belong to GPCR Family C. β2AR is the most widely-expressed AR subtype and was the focus of a number of early studies that provided key evidence in support of the notion of GPCR dimerization. β2AR homodimerization has been demonstrated via 1) coimmunoprecipitation of differentially tagged versions of the receptor (Hebert et al., 1996), 2) functional studies demonstrating rescue of a constitutively desensitized form of the receptor (Hebert et al., 1998), and 3) bioluminescence resonance energy transfer between versions of the receptor with distinct fluorescent proteins fused to the cytoplasmic carboxyl-termini (Angers et al., 2000). More recent work has demonstrated that mutation of a ...
Understanding the component stoichiometry of the T cell antigen receptor (TCR) triggering apparatus is essential for building realistic models of signal initiation. Recent studies suggesting that the TCR and other signaling-associated proteins are preclustered on resting T cells relied on measurements of the behavior of membrane proteins at interfaces with functionalized glass surfaces. Using fluorescence recovery after photo-bleaching, we show that, compared with the apical surface, the mobility of TCRs is significantly reduced at Jurkat T cell/glass interfaces, in a signaling-sensitive manner. Using two biophysical approaches that mitigate these effects, bioluminescence resonance energy transfer and two-color coincidence detection microscopy, we show that, within the uncertainty of the methods, the membrane components of the TCR triggering apparatus, i.e. the TCR complex, MHC molecules, CD4/Lck and CD45, are exclusively monovalent or monomeric in human T cell lines, implying that TCR ...
Nanoparticles have been extensively used for inflammation imaging and photodynamic therapy of cancer. However, the major translational barriers to most nanoparticle-based imaging and therapy applications are the limited depth of tissue penetration, inevitable requirement of external irradiation, and poor biocompatibility of the nanoparticles. To overcome these critical limitations, we synthesized a sensitive, specific, biodegradable luminescent nanoparticle that is self-assembled from an amphiphilic polymeric conjugate with a luminescent donor (luminol) and a fluorescent acceptor [chlorin e6 (Ce6)] for in vivo luminescence imaging and photodynamic therapy in deep tissues. Mechanistically, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and myeloperoxidase generated in inflammatory sites or the tumor microenvironment trigger bioluminescence resonance energy transfer and the production of singlet oxygen (1O2) from the nanoparticle, enabling in vivo imaging and cancer therapy, respectively. This self-illuminating ...

A heteroreceptor is a receptor regulating the synthesis and/or the release of mediators other than its own ligand. Heteroreceptors are receptors that respond to neurotransmitters, neuromodulators, or neurohormones released from adjacent neurons or cells; they are opposite to autoreceptors, which are sensitive only to neurotransmitters or hormones released by the cell in whose wall they are embedded. Norepinephrine can influence the release of acetylcholine from parasympathetic neurons by acting on α2 adrenergic (α2A, α2B, and α2C) heteroreceptors. Acetylcholine can influence the release of norepinephrine from sympathetic neurons by acting on muscarinic-2 and muscarinic-4 heteroreceptors. CB1 negatively modulates the release of GABA and glutamate, playing a crucial role in maintaining a homeostasis between excitatory and inhibitory transmission. Glutamate released from an excitatory neuron escapes from the synaptic cleft and preferentially affects mGluR III receptors on the presynaptic ...

We have demonstrated previously that the chemokine receptors CCR2 and CCR5 form homo- and heterodimers and that dimers can only bind a single chemokine molecule with high affinity. We provide here evidence from bioluminescence resonance energy transfer experiments that stimulation by chemokines does not influence the CCR2/CCR5 heterodimerization status. In addition, we show that the rate of radioligand dissociation from one unit of the heterodimer in infinite tracer dilution conditions is strongly increased in the presence of an unlabeled chemokine ligand of the other unit. These results demonstrate unambiguously that the interaction between heterodimer units is of allosteric nature. Agonists, but also some monoclonal antibodies, could promote such negative binding cooperativity, indicating that this phenomenon does not require the full conformational change associated with receptor activation. Finally, we show that G protein coupling is required for high-affinity binding of macrophage ...
CB1 receptor je presinaptički heteroreceptor koji moduliše otpuštanje neurotransmitera kad je aktiviran. On funkcioniše na način koji je zavistan od doze, stereoselektivan i senzitivan na pertuzijski toksin.[3] CB1 receptor aktiviraju kanabinoidi, prirodno formirani u telu (Endokanabinoidi) ili uneseni kao kanabis ili srodno sintetičko jedinjenje.. Iz istraživanja proizilazi da je većina CB1 receptora spregnuta sa Gi/o proteinima. Pri aktivaciji, CB1 receptor deluje prvenstveno putem aktivacije Gi, čime se snižava intracelularna cAMP koncentracija putem inhibicije enzima za njegovu produkciju, adenilat ciklaze, i povišava koncentracija mitogenom-aktivirane proteinske kinaze (MAP kinaze). Alternativno, u nekim retkim slučajevima aktivacija CB1 receptora može da bude spregnuta sa Gs proteinima, koji stimulišu adenilat ciklazu.[2] Poznato je da cAMP služi kao sekundarni glasnik koji se spreže sa mnoštvom jonskih kanala, uključujući unutrašnje ispravljajuće kalijumske kanale ...

An apparatus is disclosed for exothermically obtaining hydrogen or hydrogen peroxide from water vapor in a reaction chamber. The separation of the hydrogen and oxygen may be accelerated through the use of a combination host and sensitizer material which is present near spaces or voids within the reaction chamber. The water vapor has certain particular absorption bands in its absorption versus frequency characteristic. Each of the sensitizers which are located adjacent the voids in the reactant, in one embodiment forming part of the walls of small cylindrical tubes, has an energy output in the excited state which is precisely in one of the energy absorption bands in the water vapor characteristic. The host material absorbs heat energy and excites the sensitizer material. In addition to the formation of free hydrogen, some hydrogen peroxide is also formed. Other feedstocks may have energy selectively applied to them.Alternative appparatus for applying high intensity radiation to feedstock include (1) a

Insulin receptor substrates (IRS)-5 and -6 are two recently identified members of the IRS family. We investigated their roles as insulin receptor substrates and compared them with Src-homology-2-containing (Shc) protein, a well-established substrate. Bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) experiments showed no interaction between the receptor and IRS-5, while interaction with IRS-6 was not enhanced by insulin. By contrast, Shc showed an insulin-induced BRET response, as did a truncated form of IRS-1 (1-262). While Shc was heavily phosphorylated after stimulation of the insulin receptor, IRS-5 and -6 showed very weak phosphorylation levels. These results suggest that, although these two adaptors have previously been proposed as substrates for the insulin receptor, they are poor substrates for the insulin receptor. This calls into question their relevance to insulin signalling.
Green fluorescent proteins (GFPs) and calcium-activated photoproteins of the aequorin/clytin family, now widely used as research tools, were originally isolated from the hydrozoan jellyfish Aequora victoria. It is known that bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) is possible between these proteins to generate flashes of green light, but the native function and significance of this phenomenon is unclear. Using the hydrozoan Clytia hemisphaerica, we characterized differential expression of three clytin and four GFP genes in distinct tissues at larva, medusa and polyp stages, corresponding to the major in vivo sites of bioluminescence (medusa tentacles and eggs) and fluorescence (these sites plus medusa manubrium, gonad and larval ectoderms ...
Viruses exploit signaling pathways to their advantage during multiple stages of their life cycle. We demonstrate a role for protein kinase A (PKA) in the hepatitis C virus (HCV) life cycle. The inhibition of PKA with H89, cyclic AMP (cAMP) antagonists, or the protein kinase inhibitor peptide reduced HCV entry into Huh-7.5 hepatoma cells. Bioluminescence resonance energy transfer methodology allowed us to investigate the PKA isoform specificity of the cAMP antagonists in Huh-7.5 cells, suggesting a role for PKA type II in HCV internalization. Since viral entry is dependent on the host cell expression of CD81, scavenger receptor BI, and claudin-1 (CLDN1), we studied the role of PKA in regulating viral receptor localization by confocal imaging and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) analysis. Inhibiting PKA activity in Huh-7.5 cells induced a reorganization of CLDN1 from the plasma membrane to an intracellular vesicular location(s) and disrupted FRET between CLDN1 and CD81, demonstrating the
