Calculation of a Gap restoration in the membrane skeleton of the red blood cell: possible role for myosin II in local repair. (1/6267)

Human red blood cells contain all of the elements involved in the formation of nonmuscle actomyosin II complexes (V. M. Fowler. 1986. J. Cell. Biochem. 31:1-9; 1996. Curr. Opin. Cell Biol. 8:86-96). No clear function has yet been attributed to these complexes. Using a mathematical model for the structure of the red blood cell spectrin skeleton (M. J. Saxton. 1992. J. Theor. Biol. 155:517-536), we have explored a possible role for myosin II bipolar minifilaments in the restoration of the membrane skeleton, which may be locally damaged by major mechanical or chemical stress. We propose that the establishment of stable links between distant antiparallel actin protofilaments after a local myosin II activation may initiate the repair of the disrupted area. We show that it is possible to define conditions in which the calculated number of myosin II minifilaments bound to actin protofilaments is consistent with the estimated number of myosin II minifilaments present in the red blood cells. A clear restoration effect can be observed when more than 50% of the spectrin polymers of a defined area are disrupted. It corresponds to a significant increase in the spectrin density in the protein free region of the membrane. This may be involved in a more complex repair process of the red blood cell membrane, which includes the vesiculation of the bilayer and the compaction of the disassembled spectrin network.  (+info)

Free energy landscapes of encounter complexes in protein-protein association. (2/6267)

We report the computer generation of a high-density map of the thermodynamic properties of the diffusion-accessible encounter conformations of four receptor-ligand protein pairs, and use it to study the electrostatic and desolvation components of the free energy of association. Encounter complex conformations are generated by sampling the translational/rotational space of the ligand around the receptor, both at 5-A and zero surface-to-surface separations. We find that partial desolvation is always an important effect, and it becomes dominant for complexes in which one of the reactants is neutral or weakly charged. The interaction provides a slowly varying attractive force over a small but significant region of the molecular surface. In complexes with no strong charge complementarity this region surrounds the binding site, and the orientation of the ligand in the encounter conformation with the lowest desolvation free energy is similar to the one observed in the fully formed complex. Complexes with strong opposite charges exhibit two types of behavior. In the first group, represented by barnase/barstar, electrostatics exerts strong orientational steering toward the binding site, and desolvation provides some added adhesion within the local region of low electrostatic energy. In the second group, represented by the complex of kallikrein and pancreatic trypsin inhibitor, the overall stability results from the rather nonspecific electrostatic attraction, whereas the affinity toward the binding region is determined by desolvation interactions.  (+info)

Solid-state NMR and hydrogen-deuterium exchange in a bilayer-solubilized peptide: structural and mechanistic implications. (3/6267)

Hydrogen-deuterium exchange has been monitored by solid-state NMR to investigate the structure of gramicidin M in a lipid bilayer and to investigate the mechanisms for polypeptide insertion into a lipid bilayer. Through exchange it is possible to observe 15N-2H dipolar interactions in oriented samples that yield precise structural constraints. In separate experiments the pulse sequence SFAM was used to measure dipolar distances in this structure, showing that the dimer is antiparallel. The combined use of orientational and distance constraints is shown to be a powerful structural approach. By monitoring the hydrogen-deuterium exchange at different stages in the insertion of peptides into a bilayer environment it is shown that dimeric gramicidin is inserted into the bilayer intact, i.e., without separating into monomer units. The exchange mechanism is investigated for various sites and support for a relayed imidic acid mechanism is presented. Both acid and base catalyzed mechanisms may be operable. The nonexchangeable sites clearly define a central core to which water is inaccessible or hydroxide or hydronium ion is not even momentarily stable. This provides strong evidence that this is a nonconducting state.  (+info)

Molecular dynamics on a model for nascent high-density lipoprotein: role of salt bridges. (4/6267)

The results of an all-atom molecular dynamics simulation on a discoidal complex made of 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC) and a synthetic alpha-helical 18-mer peptide with an apolipoprotein-like charge distribution are presented. The system consists of 12 acetyl-18A-amide (Ac-18A-NH2) (. J. Biol. Chem. 260:10248-10255) molecules and 20 molecules of POPC in a bilayer, 10 in each leaflet, solvated in a sphere of water for a total of 28,522 atoms. The peptide molecules are oriented with their long axes normal to the bilayer (the "picket fence" orientation). This system is analogous to complexes formed in nascent high-density lipoprotein and to Ac-18A-NH2/phospholipid complexes observed experimentally. The simulation extended over 700 ps, with the last 493 ps used for analysis. The symmetry of this system allows for averaging over different helices to improve sampling, while maintaining explicit all-atom representation of all peptides. The complex is stable on the simulated time scale. Several possible salt bridges between and within helices were studied. A few salt bridge formations and disruptions were observed. Salt bridges provide specificity in interhelical interactions.  (+info)

Molecular dynamics study of substance P peptides in a biphasic membrane mimic. (5/6267)

Two neuropeptides, substance P (SP) and SP-tyrosine-8 (SP-Y8), have been studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation in a TIP3P water/CCl4 biphasic solvent system as a mimic for the water-membrane system. Initially, distance restraints derived from NMR nuclear Overhauser enhancements (NOE) were incorporated in the restrained MD (RMD) in the equilibration stage of the simulation. The starting orientation/position of the peptides for the MD simulation was either parallel to the water/CCl4 interface or in a perpendicular/insertion mode. In both cases the peptides equilibrated and adopted a near-parallel orientation within approximately 250 ps. After equilibration, the conformation and orientation of the peptides, the solvation of both the backbone and the side chain of the residues, hydrogen bonding, and the dynamics of the peptides were analyzed from trajectories obtained in the RMD or the subsequent free MD (where the NOE restraints were removed). These analyses showed that the peptide backbone of nearly all residues are either solvated by water or are hydrogen-bonded. This is seen to be an important factor against the insertion mode of interaction. Most of the interactions with the hydrophobic phase come from the hydrophobic interactions of the side chains of Pro-4, Phe-7, Phe-8, Leu-10, and Met-11 for SP, and Phe-7, Leu-10, Met-11 and, to a lesser extent, Tyr-8 in SP-Y8. Concerted conformational transitions took place in the time frame of hundreds of picoseconds. The concertedness of the transition was due to the tendency of the peptide to maintain the necessary secondary structure to position the peptide properly with respect to the water/CCl4 interface.  (+info)

Molecular dynamics study of substance P peptides partitioned in a sodium dodecylsulfate micelle. (6/6267)

Two neuropeptides, substance P (SP) and SP-tyrosine-8 (SP-Y8), have been studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation in an explicit sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) micelle. Initially, distance restraints derived from NMR nuclear Overhauser enhancements (NOE) were incorporated in the restrained MD (RMD) during the equilibration stage of the simulation. It was shown that when SP-Y8 was initially placed in an insertion (perpendicular) configuration, the peptide equilibrated to a surface-bound (parallel) configuration in approximately 450 ps. After equilibration, the conformation and orientation of the peptides, the solvation of both the backbone and the side chain of the residues, hydrogen bonding, and the dynamics of the peptides were analyzed from trajectories obtained from the RMD or the subsequent free MD (where the NOE restraints were removed). These analyses showed that the peptide backbones of all residues are either solvated by water or are hydrogen-bonded. This is seen to be an important factor against the insertion mode of interaction. Most of the interactions come from the hydrophobic interaction between the side chains of Lys-3, Pro-4, Phe-7, Phe-8, Leu-10, and Met-11 for SP, from Lys-3, Phe-7, Leu-10, and Met-11 in SP-Y8, and the micellar interior. Significant interactions, electrostatic and hydrogen bonding, between the N-terminal residues, Arg-Pro-Lys, and the micellar headgroups were observed. These latter interactions served to affect both the structure and, especially, the flexibility, of the N-terminus. The results from simulation of the same peptides in a water/CCl4 biphasic cell were compared with the results of the present study, and the validity of using the biphasic system as an approximation for peptide-micelle or peptide-bilayer systems is discussed.  (+info)

Charge pairing of headgroups in phosphatidylcholine membranes: A molecular dynamics simulation study. (7/6267)

Molecular dynamics simulation of the hydrated dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) bilayer membrane in the liquid-crystalline phase was carried out for 5 ns to study the interaction among DMPC headgroups in the membrane/water interface region. The phosphatidylcholine headgroup contains a positively charged choline group and negatively charged phosphate and carbonyl groups, although it is a neutral molecule as a whole. Our previous study (Pasenkiewicz-Gierula, M., Y. Takaoka, H. Miyagawa, K. Kitamura, and A. Kusumi. 1997. J. Phys. Chem. 101:3677-3691) showed the formation of water cross-bridges between negatively charged groups in which a water molecule is simultaneously hydrogen bonded to two DMPC molecules. Water bridges link 76% of DMPC molecules in the membrane. In the present study we show that relatively stable charge associations (charge pairs) are formed between the positively and negatively charged groups of two DMPC molecules. Charge pairs link 93% of DMPC molecules in the membrane. Water bridges and charge pairs together form an extended network of interactions among DMPC headgroups linking 98% of all membrane phospholipids. The average lifetimes of DMPC-DMPC associations via charge pairs, water bridges and both, are at least 730, 1400, and over 1500 ps, respectively. However, these associations are dynamic states and they break and re-form several times during their lifetime.  (+info)

Pathways of electron transfer in Escherichia coli DNA photolyase: Trp306 to FADH. (8/6267)

We describe the results of a series of theoretical calculations of electron transfer pathways between Trp306 and *FADH. in the Escherichia coli DNA photolyase molecule, using the method of interatomic tunneling currents. It is found that there are two conformationally orthogonal tryptophans, Trp359 and Trp382, between donor and acceptor that play a crucial role in the pathways of the electron transfer process. The pathways depend vitally on the aromaticity of tryptophans and the flavin molecule. The results of this calculation suggest that the major pathway of the electron transfer is due to a set of overlapping orthogonal pi-rings, which starts from the donor Trp306, runs through Trp359 and Trp382, and finally reaches the flavin group of the acceptor complex, FADH.  (+info)

One of the key challenges in biophysics and chemical biology is gaining an understanding of the underlying physico-chemical basis of the highly complex structure and properties of biomembranes. It used to be thought that the lipid component played a mainly passive role, simply acting as a self-assembled bilayer matrix within which the active protein components functioned. However, it has now become clear that there is a intimate two-way interplay between the lipid and the protein components in determining membrane structure, organization and dynamics, and that lipids play many active roles in biological function. Concepts such as lateral segregation and domain formation, lateral pressure, curvature and curvature elasticity have attracted enormous interest in recent years, although their validity when applied to real biomembranes remains unclear or even obscure. This Faraday Discussion considered recent developments in the study of biomembrane structure, ordering and dynamics, with particular emphasis on

Life is inherently multi-scaled ranging from molecules (nm) to 100m (trees) and from femtoseconds (chemical reactions) to millennia (evolution), covering around 27 orders of magnitude in total. Thus Scale creates immediate interdisciplinary resonances within current novel attempts to make progress understanding complex biological systems, especially by bringing the natural and life sciences communities together. Scale in biophysical systems also brings serious interdisciplinary challenges:. i. How can we measure structure and dynamics simultaneously at different scales?. ii. How can we build models that capture multiscale phenomena?. iii. How can we create holistic, systems understanding even if we possess (i) and (ii)?.

Professor PAN Lei of the Institute of Biophysics (IBP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in cooperation with Professor TANG Hong (Institute Pasteur of Shanghai) and colleagues found that flies deficient of intestinal Bap180 (Baf180 in mammals), a subunit of chromatin remodeling SWI/SNF complex, succumb to excessive inflammation rather than bacterial overload after bacterial infection. Bap180 is induced by Drosophila intestinal innate immune pathway, IMD-Relish signalling (TNFR/IL-1R in mammals), response to bacterial challenge. Thus,upregulated Bap180 functions as a negative feedback regulator to limit overreactive IMD signaling through interfering with Relish binding activity as well as to avoid overexpression of pro-inflammatory gene eiger (TNF in mammals), a critical step to prevent of excessive tissue damage and elongate life span of flies, at transcriptional level. Furthermore, intestinal targeting of Baf180 renders mice susceptible to a more aggressive infectious colitis caused by ...

Soft condensed matter and biophysics are very active areas of activity at IFIMAC. The theory and simulations of liquids and their interfaces has already a long tradition among some of the members of the institute, with the younger researchers bringing new ideas and perspectives to cover more complex systems. Special simulation methods have been developed for the study to these systems out of equilibrium. Experimental and theoretical work on glasses has also been carried out for a long time, and it has recently being extended to the study of fossil amber samples and other ultra-stabilized glasses.. Among the multiple routes to biophysical systems, the experience of IFIMAC members in theoretical soft matter physics is being successfully used in different approaches to biological systems. First-principle simulations for the electronic structure of bio-molecules are being used to describe their chemical reactions. In a complementary top-down approach, the experience in the statistical physics of ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Chapter 1. T2 - Biophysics of the Green Fluorescent Protein. AU - Prendergast, F. G.. PY - 1998/1/1. Y1 - 1998/1/1. N2 - It is almost certainly a truism that the interpretation of the fluorescence of a protein matrix-embedded chromophore in terms of the physicochemical character of its environment requires that the tertiary structure of the protein be known to high resolution. This reality derives from the complexity of the photophysics of most fluorescent molecules-complexity that reveals the imperfections of available theory. The accuracy of these dicta is highlighted by the biophysical properties of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) now being so elegantly elucidated from the application of X-ray crystallography, ultrafast optical spectroscopy, and site-specific mutagenesis. Given the apparent malleability of the GFP sequence and the sensitivity of the chromophores photophysics to a broad spectrum of physicochemical factors, it is inevitable that additional useful and ...

Although some of the landscapes perhaps could be described by some (tortuous) one-dimensional coordinate, in other instances that just wouldnt be possible. Think how much worse the situation would have to be in a system like a protein with thousands of degrees of freedom.. Now take one more step on the road to skepticism and consider how PMFs tend to be constructed in computational studies. Because the calculations are so expensive, we tend to choose one or two coordinates in advance for study. These coordinate choices represent our pre-conceived ideas about how a system might function.. Based on the features of the PMF landscape, we build a story about mechanism … the dwells are here and the transition states there. And yet we know that all basins are not alike - some may be energy stabilized and other favored by entropy. The heights of barriers, their widths and likewise the dimensions of basins all are influenced by the particular coordinate(s) we chose in advance, as illustrated in the ...

Glyn Williams -Astex: First off, let me say the best thing Glyn said during his talk was that the Ro3 was meant as a guideline. His talk spoke about the variety of methods in use at Astex: MS, NMR, Thermal shift, ITC, and X-ray. MS is used for protein validation and QC, thermal shift was used for affinity ranking, but they have moved away from it (his comment, when it doesnt work, you dont know), ITC is a good way to discriminate good compounds from bad, and NMR is used in competition mode. In terms of their library, they have had 2600 fragments EVER and their current fragment library iteration has 1500 members. Their core library has a avg MW of 176 (~13 HA) and clogP of 0.9 and the X-ray subset of 350 fragments 146 Da (~10 HA) clogP of 0.5. 40% of their fragments are NOT commercially available. These are small fragments and he noted that on average each fragment has hit two targets. Greater than 50% of their hits have never generated a X-ray structure, but have hit in the biophysics ...

Unexpected lessons on neuromodulator action from imaging molecular signals Yao Chen, Ph.D. Department of Neurobiology Harvard Medical School Abstract: Neuromodulators such as acetylcholine and dopamine have profound effects on neural circuits and behavior. However, how neuromodulator-induced molecular signals influence behavior represents an outstanding gap in our understanding of neuromodulator action. In order to go beyond the identity to the action of molecular signals, we need to know the subcellular and cellular specificity as well as temporal dynamics of neuromodulator-induced molecular signals. One of the major challenges to uncover these features is the lack of methods to dynamically monitor the molecular signals induced by G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) activation with high spatial resolution. A critical intracellular integrator of GPCRs is protein kinase A (PKA). PKA activity is stimulated by Gαs-coupled and inhibited by Gαi-coupled neuromodulator receptors, and this push-pull ...

One kind of emergence we wish to stress here is that, although you would think that a polymer consisting of potentially 21 different amino acids for each position would form some sort of a glue-ball, it doesnt. Many proteins in solution seem to fold into rather well-defined three-dimensional shapes. But can we predict these shapes from the amino acid sequence? This question is known as the "protein-folding problem," and has occupied many physicists over the past 30 some years as they attempt with ever-increasingly powerful computers to solve it. While Peter Wolynes and Jose Onuchich have been able to sketch out some powerful ideas about the general path of the protein folding that make use of the physics concept of free energy, it could well be that solving the puzzle to a precise answer may be impossible. There may well be a fundamental reason why a precise answer to the folding problem is impossible: because in fact there may be no precise answer! Experiments by Hans Frauenfelder have shown ...
