p50(cdc37) acting in concert with Hsp90 is required for Raf-1 function. (1/963)

Genetic screens in Drosophila have identified p50(cdc37) to be an essential component of the sevenless receptor/mitogen-activated kinase protein (MAPK) signaling pathway, but neither the function nor the target of p50(cdc37) in this pathway has been defined. In this study, we examined the role of p50(cdc37) and its Hsp90 chaperone partner in Raf/Mek/MAPK signaling biochemically. We found that coexpression of wild-type p50(cdc37) with Raf-1 resulted in robust and dose-dependent activation of Raf-1 in Sf9 cells. In addition, p50(cdc37) greatly potentiated v-Src-mediated Raf-1 activation. Moreover, we found that p50(cdc37) is the primary determinant of Hsp90 recruitment to Raf-1. Overexpression of a p50(cdc37) mutant which is unable to recruit Hsp90 into the Raf-1 complex inhibited Raf-1 and MAPK activation by growth factors. Similarly, pretreatment with geldanamycin (GA), an Hsp90-specific inhibitor, prevented both the association of Raf-1 with the p50(cdc37)-Hsp90 heterodimer and Raf-1 kinase activation by serum. Activation of Raf-1 via baculovirus coexpression with oncogenic Src or Ras in Sf9 cells was also strongly inhibited by dominant negative p50(cdc37) or by GA. Thus, formation of a ternary Raf-1-p50(cdc37)-Hsp90 complex is crucial for Raf-1 activity and MAPK pathway signaling. These results provide the first biochemical evidence for the requirement of the p50(cdc37)-Hsp90 complex in protein kinase regulation and for Raf-1 function in particular.  (+info)

Enhanced fatty streak formation in C57BL/6J mice by immunization with heat shock protein-65. (2/963)

Recent data suggest that the immune system is involved in atherogenesis. Thus, interest has been raised as to the possible antigens that could serve as the initiators of the immune reaction. In the current work, we studied the effects of immunization with recombinant heat shock protein-65 (HSP-65) and HSP-65-rich Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MT) on early atherogenesis in C57BL/6J mice fed either a normal chow diet or a high-cholesterol diet (HCD). A rapid, cellular immune response to HSP-65 was evident in mice immunized with HSP-65 or with MT but not in the animals immunized with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) alone. Early atherosclerosis was significantly enhanced in HCD-fed mice immunized with HSP-65 (n=10; mean aortic lesion size, 45 417+/-9258 microm2) or MT (n=15; 66 350+/-6850 microm2) compared with PBS-injected (n=10; 10 028+/-3599 microm2) or nonimmunized (n=10; 9500+/-2120 microm2) mice. No fatty streak lesions were observed in mice fed a chow diet regardless of the immunization protocol applied. Immunohistochemical analysis of atherosclerotic lesions from the HSP-65- and MT-immunized mice revealed infiltration of CD4 lymphocytes compared with the relatively lymphocyte-poor lesions in the PBS-treated or nonimmunized mice. Direct immunofluorescence analysis of lesions from HSP-65- and MT-immunized mice fed an HCD exhibited extensive deposits of immunoglobulins compared with the fatty streaks in the other study groups, consistent with the larger and more advanced lesions found in the former 2 groups. This model, which supports the involvement of HSP-65 in atherogenesis, furnishes a valuable tool to study the role of the immune system in atherogenesis.  (+info)

Identification of Mycobacterium kansasii by using a DNA probe (AccuProbe) and molecular techniques. (3/963)

The newly formulated Mycobacterium kansasii AccuProbe was evaluated, and the results obtained with the new version were compared to the results obtained with the old version of this test by using 116 M. kansasii strains, 1 Mycobacterium gastri strain, and 19 strains of several mycobacterial species. The sensitivity of this new formulation was 97.4% and the specificity was 100%. Still, three M. kansasii strains were missed by this probe. To evaluate the variability within the species, genetic analyses of the hsp65 gene, the spacer sequence between the 16S and 23S rRNA genes, and the 16S rRNA gene of several M. kansasii AccuProbe-positive strains as well as all AccuProbe-negative strains were performed. Genetic analyses of the one M. gastri strain from the comparative assay and of two further M. gastri strains were included because of the identity of the 16S rRNA gene in M. gastri to that in M. kansasii. The data confirmed the genetic heterogeneity of M. kansasii. Furthermore, a subspecies with an unpublished hsp65 restriction pattern and spacer sequence was described. The genetic data indicate that all M. kansasii strains missed by the AccuProbe test belong to one subspecies, the newly described subspecies VI, as determined by the hsp65 restriction pattern and the spacer sequence. Since the M. kansasii strains that are missed are rare and all M. gastri strains are correctly negative, the new formulated AccuProbe provides a useful tool for the identification of M. kansasii.  (+info)

Endothelial cytotoxicity mediated by serum antibodies to heat shock proteins of Escherichia coli and Chlamydia pneumoniae: immune reactions to heat shock proteins as a possible link between infection and atherosclerosis. (4/963)

BACKGROUND: Growing evidence suggests that an immunological reaction against heat shock proteins (HSPs) may be involved in atherogenesis. Because HSPs show a high degree of amino acid sequence homology between different species, from prokaryotes to humans, we investigated the possibility of "antigenic mimicry" caused by an immunological cross-reaction between microorganisms and autoantigens. METHODS AND RESULTS: Serum antibodies against the Escherichia coli HSP (GroEL) and the 60-kDa chlamydial HSP (cHSP60) from subjects with atherosclerosis were purified by use of affinity chromatography. Western blot analyses and competitive ELISAs confirmed the cross-reaction of the eluted antibodies with human HSP60 and the bacterial counterparts. The cytotoxicity of anti-GroEL and anti-cHSP60 antibodies was determined on human endothelial cells labeled with 51Cr. A significant difference (40% versus 8%) was observed in the specific 51Cr release of heat-treated (42 degrees C for 30 minutes) and untreated cells, respectively, in the presence of these anti-HSP antibodies and complement. This effect was blocked by addition of 100 microg/mL recombinant GroEL. In addition, seropositivity against specific non-HSP60 Chlamydia pneumoniae antigens is more prominent among high-anti-HSP titer sera than low-titer sera. CONCLUSIONS: Serum antibodies against HSP65/60 cross-react with human HSP60, cHSP60, and GroEL; correlate with the presence of antibodies to C pneumoniae and endotoxin; and mediate endothelial cytotoxicity. These findings suggest that humoral immune reactions to bacterial HSPs, such as cHSP60 and GroEL, may play an important role in the process of vascular endothelial injury, which is believed to be a key event in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of a second subunit of molecular chaperonin from Pyrococcus kodakaraensis KOD1: analysis of an ATPase-deficient mutant enzyme. (5/963)

The cpkA gene encoding a second (alpha) subunit of archaeal chaperonin from Pyrococcus kodakaraensis KOD1 was cloned, sequenced, and expressed in Escherichia coli. Recombinant CpkA was studied for chaperonin functions in comparison with CpkB (beta subunit). The effect on decreasing the insoluble form of proteins was examined by coexpressing CpkA or CpkB with CobQ (cobyric acid synthase from P. kodakaraensis) in E. coli. The results indicate that both CpkA and CpkB effectively decrease the amount of the insoluble form of CobQ. Both CpkA and CpkB possessed the same ATPase activity as other bacterial and eukaryal chaperonins. The ATPase-deficient mutant proteins CpkA-D95K and CpkB-D95K were constructed by changing conserved Asp95 to Lys. Effect of the mutation on the ATPase activity and CobQ solubilization was examined. Neither mutant exhibited ATPase activity in vitro. Nevertheless, they decreased the amount of the insoluble form of CobQ by coexpression as did wild-type CpkA and CpkB. These results implied that both CpkA and CpkB could assist protein folding for nascent protein in E. coli without requiring energy from ATP hydrolysis.  (+info)

GroEL/GroES-dependent reconstitution of alpha2 beta2 tetramers of humanmitochondrial branched chain alpha-ketoacid decarboxylase. Obligatory interaction of chaperonins with an alpha beta dimeric intermediate. (6/963)

The decarboxylase component (E1) of the human mitochondrial branched chain alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase multienzyme complex (approximately 4-5 x 10(3) kDa) is a thiamine pyrophosphate-dependent enzyme, comprising two 45.5-kDa alpha subunits and two 37.8-kDa beta subunits. In the present study, His6-tagged E1 alpha2 beta2 tetramers (171 kDa) denatured in 8 M urea were competently reconstituted in vitro at 23 degrees C with an absolute requirement for chaperonins GroEL/GroES and Mg-ATP. Unexpectedly, the kinetics for the recovery of E1 activity was very slow with a rate constant of 290 M-1 s-1. Renaturation of E1 with a similarly slow kinetics was also achieved using individual GroEL-alpha and GroEL-beta complexes as combined substrates. However, the beta subunit was markedly more prone to misfolding than the alpha in the absence of GroEL. The alpha subunit was released as soluble monomers from the GroEL-alpha complex alone in the presence of GroES and Mg-ATP. In contrast, the beta subunit discharged from the GroEL-beta complex readily rebound to GroEL when the alpha subunit was absent. Analysis of the assembly state showed that the His6-alpha and beta subunits released from corresponding GroEL-polypeptide complexes assembled into a highly structured but inactive 85.5-kDa alpha beta dimeric intermediate, which subsequently dimerized to produce the active alpha2 beta2 tetrameter. The purified alpha beta dimer isolated from Escherichia coli lysates was capable of binding to GroEL to produce a stable GroEL-alpha beta ternary complex. Incubation of this novel ternary complex with GroES and Mg-ATP resulted in recovery of E1 activity, which also followed slow kinetics with a rate constant of 138 M-1 s-1. Dimers were regenerated from the GroEL-alpha beta complex, but they needed to interact with GroEL/GroES again, thereby perpetuating the cycle until the conversion from dimers to tetramers was complete. Our study describes an obligatory role of chaperonins in priming the dimeric intermediate for subsequent tetrameric assembly, which is a slow step in the reconstitution of E1 alpha2 beta2 tetramers.  (+info)

Cloning, sequencing and molecular analysis of the Campylobacter jejuni groESL bicistronic operon. (7/963)

The groESL bicistronic operon from the enteric pathogen Campylobacter jejuni was cloned and sequenced. It consists of two ORFs encoding proteins with molecular masses of 9.5 and 57.9 kDa, which showed a high degree of homology to other bacterial GroES and GroEL proteins. Northern blot analysis suggested that the groESL operon is transcribed as a bicistronic mRNA, and its steady-state level was markedly increased after temperature upshift. By primer extension assay, one potential transcription start point preceding the groESL genes could be demonstrated, and a putative promoter region compatible with both Escherichia coli and C. jejuni sigma70 consensus sequences was identified. A conserved inverted repeat, which is believed to be involved in the regulation of the groESL genes, was found between the -10 promoter box and the groES translation start site. The complete coding region of groEL was fused with pET-22b(+) and expressed in E. coli as a His6-tagged recombinant protein (rCjHsp60-His). After purification, the protein was recognized by an anti-HSP60 monoclonal antibody. ELISA and Western immunoblotting experiments showed that IgG and IgA antibody responses against rCjHsp60-His were not significantly increased in sera from 24 patients with sporadic Campylobacter infection when compared to sera from 16 healthy controls.  (+info)

Chaperone-mediated protein folding. (8/963)

The folding of most newly synthesized proteins in the cell requires the interaction of a variety of protein cofactors known as molecular chaperones. These molecules recognize and bind to nascent polypeptide chains and partially folded intermediates of proteins, preventing their aggregation and misfolding. There are several families of chaperones; those most involved in protein folding are the 40-kDa heat shock protein (HSP40; DnaJ), 60-kDa heat shock protein (HSP60; GroEL), and 70-kDa heat shock protein (HSP70; DnaK) families. The availability of high-resolution structures has facilitated a more detailed understanding of the complex chaperone machinery and mechanisms, including the ATP-dependent reaction cycles of the GroEL and HSP70 chaperones. For both of these chaperones, the binding of ATP triggers a critical conformational change leading to release of the bound substrate protein. Whereas the main role of the HSP70/HSP40 chaperone system is to minimize aggregation of newly synthesized proteins, the HSP60 chaperones also facilitate the actual folding process by providing a secluded environment for individual folding molecules and may also promote the unfolding and refolding of misfolded intermediates.  (+info)

In Mycobacterium tuberculosis there are 2 distinct groEL homologues which encode the chaperonins Cpn60.1 and Cpn60.2, with the latter predicted to be the main house-keeping chaperonin. Phylogenetic analysis has revealed that the genes for the duplicated chaperonins diverged a long time ago. This implies that the duplicated chaperonins have evolved for different cellular functions. Interestingly, while most chaperonins occur as stable large complexes with a characteristic double ring structure of 14 subunits, the Mycobacterial chaperonins are very unstable and appear to form much smaller complexes. Given that the large structures formed by most chaperonins are vital to their mechanism of action, it is unclear why the oligomers are so much less stable in Mycobacteria. In this study I present detailed functional and oligomeric analysis of the M. tuberculosis chaperonins. Using various biological techniques, including complementation assays, site directed mutagenesis, and domain swap experiments; I ...

The gene encoding a highly immunogenic mycobacterial heat-shock protein (hsp65) was transfected into the murine macrophage tumor cell line J774. The resulting hsp65-expressing cells (J774-hsp65) were no longer able to produce tumors in syngeneic mice. This loss of tumorigenicity was not mediated through T cells since the transfected cells did not produce tumors in athymic mice. If mice are first immunized with the J774-hsp65 cells and then challenged with the parent J774 cells, the mice do not develop tumors, indicating that the presence of the mycobacterial hsp65 protein greatly enhances immunological recognition of unique structures expressed by the parent tumor cells. This is further confirmed by the demonstration in vitro of T cells derived from J774-hsp65-immunized mice that are cytotoxic for the parent J774 cells. The results provide the basis for a novel strategy for enhancing the immunological recognition and decreasing the tumorigenicity of transformed cells. ...

The substrate recognition mechanisms in chaperonins Chaperonins are a family of proteins devoted to assisting the folding of other proteins. They are large oligomers assembled into ring structures that enclose a cavity in which folding takes place. For this process to occur, the chaperonin must first recognize and interact with the unfolded polypeptide, then undergo a conformational change upon nucleotide binding that results in the closure of the cavity which in turn mediates the folding reaction inside the cavity. Although this general mechanism seems to apply to every chaperonin studied so far, there exist two different modes of interaction between the chaperonin and the substrate. The first occurs mainly through the interaction between the exposed hydrophobic residues of the unfolded polypeptides and those of the chaperonin substrate binding site, as elucidated for the chaperonin GroEL from E. coli. The second type of mechanism has been described so far only for the cytosolic chaperonin CCT ...

Activation of protein kinase clients by the Hsp90 system is mediated by the cochaperone protein Cdc37. Cdc37 requires phosphorylation at Ser13, but little is known about the regulation of this essential posttranslational modification. We show that Ser13 of uncomplexed Cdc37 is phosphorylated in vivo, as well as in binary complex with a kinase (C-K), or in ternary complex with Hsp90 and kinase (H-C-K). Whereas pSer13-Cdc37 in the H-C-K complex is resistant to nonspecific phosphatases, it is efficiently dephosphorylated by the chaperone-targeted protein phosphatase 5 (PP5/Ppt1), which does not affect isolated Cdc37. We show that Cdc37 and PP5/Ppt1 associate in Hsp90 complexes in yeast and in human tumor cells, and that PP5/Ppt1 regulates phosphorylation of Ser13-Cdc37 in vivo, directly affecting activation of protein kinase clients by Hsp90-Cdc37. These data reveal a cyclic regulatory mechanism for Cdc37, in which its constitutive phosphorylation is reversed by targeted dephosphorylation in Hsp90 ...

Recently, we discovered and studied the first virus-encoded chaperonin of bacteriophage EL Pseudomonas aeruginosa, gene product (gp) 146. In the present work, we performed bioinformatics analysis of currently predicted GroEL-like proteins encoded by phage genomes in comparison with cellular and mitochondrial chaperonins. Putative phage chaperonins share a low similarity and do not form a monophyletic group; nevertheless, they are closer to bacterial chaperonins in the phylogenetic tree. Experimental investigation of putative GroEL-like chaperonin proteins has been continued by physicochemical and functional characterization of gp246 encoded by the genome of Pseudomonas fluorescens bacteriophage OBP. Unlike the more usual double-ring architecture of chaperonins, including the EL gp146, the recombinant gp246 produced by E. coli cells has been purified as a single heptameric ring. It possesses an ATPase activity and does not require a co-chaperonin for its functioning. In vitro experiments ...

Mycobacterial heat shock proteins have been implicated in the way the host response to mycobacterial infection is finely balanced to control pathogen dissemination while preventing immunopathology. Constitutive overexpression of mycobacterial Hsp70 (myHsp70) enhances mycobacterial clearance in mouse models, and Hsps can promote antitumor and antiviral immune responses. Human dendritic cells pulsed with myHsp70 generate potent antigen-specific cytotoxic T cell responses, which are dependent on a calcium-signaling cascade. Floto et al. now show that this critical function of myHsp70 is dependent on signaling through the HIV coreceptor, CCR5.. R. A. Floto, P. A. MacAry, J. M. Boname, T. S. Mien, B. Kampmann, J. R.

The focus of our research activities is to understand the molecular basis of allosteric transitions in proteins and how they relate to their function. Much of our work has centered on analysis of cooperativity in the GroE and CCT/TRiC chaperonin systems (Horovitz and Willison, 2005). Steady-state and presteady-state kinetic data led us to propose a nested allosteric model for

This gene encodes a member of the prefoldin beta subunit family. The encoded protein is one of six subunits of prefoldin, a molecular chaperone complex that binds and stabilizes newly synthesized polypeptides, thereby allowing them to fold correctly. The complex, consisting of two alpha and four beta subunits, forms a double beta barrel assembly with six protruding coiled-coils. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...
GROEL Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 572 aa (27-573 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 60kDa.
Actin requires the chaperonin containing TCP1 (CCT), a hexadecameric ATPase essential for cell viability in eukaryotes, to fold to its native state. Following binding of unfolded actin to CCT, the cavity of the chaperone closes and actin is folded and released in an ATP-dependent folding cycle. In yeast, CCT forms a ternary complex with the phosducin-like protein PLP2p to fold actin, and together they can return nascent or chemically denatured actin to its native state in a pure in vitro folding assay. The complexity of the CCT-actin system makes the study of the actin folding mechanism technically challenging. We have established a novel spectroscopic assay through selectively labeling the C terminus of yeast actin with acrylodan and observe significant changes in the acrylodan fluorescence emission spectrum as actin is chemically unfolded and then refolded by the chaperonin. The variation in the polarity of the environment surrounding the fluorescent probe during the unfolding/folding ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Interactions of GroEL/GroES with a heterodimeric intermediate during α2β2 assembly of mitochondrial branched-chain α-ketoacid dehydrogenase.

N2 - We showed previously that the interaction of an αβ heterodimeric intermediate with GroEL/GroES is essential for efficient α2β2 assembly of human mitochondrial branched-chain α-ketoacid dehydrogenase. In the present study, we further characterized the mode of interaction between the chaperonins and the native-like αβ heterodimer. The αβ heterodimer, as an intact entity, was found to bind to GroEL at a 1:1 stoichiometry with a K(D) of 1.1 x 10-7 M. The 1:1 molar ratio of the GroEL-αβ complex was confirmed by the ability of the complex to bind a stoichiometric amount of denatured lysozyme in the trans cavity. Surprisingly, in the presence of MgADP, GroES was able to cap ...

Here, we study and compare the mechanisms of action of the GroEL/GroES and the TRiC chaperonin systems on MreB client protein variants extracted from E. coli. MreB is a homologue to actin in prokaryotes. Single-molecule fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) and time-resolved fluorescence polarization anisotropy report the binding interaction of folding MreB with GroEL, GroES and TRiC. Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) measurements on MreB variants quantified molecular distance changes occurring during conformational rearrangements within folding MreB bound to chaperonins. We observed that the MreB structure is rearranged by a binding-induced expansion mechanism in TRiC, GroEL and GroES. These results are quantitatively comparable to the structural rearrangements found during the interaction of beta-actin with GroEL and TRiC, indicating that the mechanism of chaperonins is conserved during evolution. The chaperonin-bound MreB is also significantly compacted after addition of ...
The human mitochondrial chaperonin is a macromolecular machine that catalyzes the proper folding and assembly of newly imported mitochondrial proteins into their biologically active state. It is composed of two proteins from the highly conserved heat shock protein family, hsp10 and hsp60, that assemble into large oligomeric complexes responsible for mediating the folding of non-native polypeptides in an ATP dependent manner. In addition to its innate role in protein folding, human mitochondrial hsp60 has been implicated in numerous moonlighting cellular activities that have been linked to diseases conditions such as cancer and neurodegeneracy. In light of its cellular importance, the conditions that propel the human mitochondrial chaperonin through its protein folding mechanism are not well understood. Here I propose a protein folding scheme for the mitochondrial chaperonin based on negative stain electron microscopy 3-D reconstructions. I found that the human mitochondrial chaperonin complex
Phloroglucinol is an important chemical which has been successfully produced by engineered Escherichia coli. However, the toxicity of phloroglucinol can enormously inhibit E. coli cell growth and viability, and the productivity is still too low and not economically feasible for industrial applications. Therefore, strain tolerance to toxic metabolites remains a key issue during the production of chemicals using biological processes. In the present work, we examined the impact of the native GroESL chaperone system with different overexpression levels on phloroglucinol tolerance and production in E. coli. The groESL gene was cloned into an expression vector, of which expression level was regulated by three different promoters (natural, tac and T7 promoter). Strain tolerance was evaluated employing viable cell counts and phloroglucinol production. In comparison with the control strain, all GroESL overexpressing strains showed good characteristics in cell viability and phloroglucinol synthesis. Strain which

We theoretically investigate the properties of the series-coupled fiber double-ring resonator in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer as highly sensitive temperature sensor. By comparison of phase difference between two arms, we acquired suitable phase difference of 0.5π between two arms in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer for sharpest asymmetric line shape around the resonance wavelength. We also analyze the effect of parameters on the sensitivity and the detection limit by measuring the intensity change at a fixed wavelength. For the 30dB signal-to-noise ratio system, the sensitivity and the detection limit can achieve 720.8/°C and 4.16×10−6 °C, respectively. These results indicate that this structure is suitable for highly sensitive, compact and stable sensors ...
The ABC protein ABCE1, formerly named RNase L inhibitor RLI1, is one of the most conserved proteins in evolution and is expressed in all organisms except eubacteria. Because of its fundamental role in translation initiation and/or ribosome biosynthesis, ABCE1 is essential for life. Its molecular mechanism has, however, not been elucidated. In addition to two ABC ATPase domains, ABCE1 contains a unique N-terminal region with eight conserved cysteines, predicted to coordinate iron-sulfur clusters. Here we present detailed information on the type and on the structural organization of the Fe-S clusters in ABCE1. Based on biophysical, biochemical, and yeast genetic analyses, ABCE1 harbors two essential diamagnetic [4Fe-4S](2+) clusters with different electronic environments, one ferredoxin-like (CPX(n)CX(2)CX(2)C; Cys at positions 4-7) and one unique ABCE1-type cluster (CXPX(2)CX(3)CX(n)CP; Cys at positions 1, 2, 3, and 8). Strikingly, only seven of the eight conserved cysteines coordinating the Fe-S

In nature I can think of two things which influence how, starting from the unfolded state, a protein tries out new configurations. The first is random motion, and the neighborhood around the current configuration explored by this motion is controlled primarily by the temperature. We know typically know the temperature range a protein needs to fold in, and we can probably calculate what size of moves it makes. The second factor is a class of proteins called chaperone proteins (chaperonins). These proteins bind temporarily to an unfolded protein guide the folding process. The interaction results in a faster exploration of a particular part of protein-conformation space than would otherwise be possible. It might overcome barriers to folding which would otherwise be insurmountable. Its not hard to imagine that a chaperonin might lead another protein to folding into a local minimum configuration. As long as the local minimum was deep enough that the protein was trapped there at its usual ...
Posted by Vesa Raiskila on December 07, 1999 at 19:45:34:. Re the polarity issue: I originally thought that getting the polarity right between the two magnets in each pair was the only thing that mattered. I didnt think that, after the rings had been correctly constructed, it mattered which side up one kept the rings around the fingers.. If you think this is important, I think you should emphasize it on the page where the instructions are. (You do emphasize it, but please read on.) Although the inter-ring alignment is shown correctly in the diagram, some people might think that the inter-ring aligment shown is coincidental and that the only important thing is to get the *intra-ring* polarities right. That was also the way in which I interpreted your polarity warning: I though that it concerned (only) the way in which each pair was to be assembled..

... (RP) is one of the most common forms of inherited retinal degeneration.[5] There are multiple genes that, when mutated, can cause the retinitis pigmentosa phenotype.[10] Inheritance patterns of RP have been identified as autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked, and maternally (mitochondrially) acquired, and are dependent on the specific RP gene mutations present in the parental generation.[11] In 1989, a mutation of the gene for rhodopsin, a pigment that plays an essential part in the visual transduction cascade enabling vision in low-light conditions, was identified. The rhodopsin gene encodes a principal protein of photoreceptor outer segments. Mutations in this gene most commonly presents as missense mutations or misfolding of the rhodopsin protein, and most frequently follow autosomal dominant inheritance patterns. Since the discovery of the rhodopsin gene, more than 100 RHO mutations have been identified, accounting for 15% of all types of retinal ...
