Ion Channel Gating
The opening and closing of ion channels due to a stimulus. The stimulus can be a change in membrane potential (voltage-gated), drugs or chemical transmitters (ligand-gated), or a mechanical deformation. Gating is thought to involve conformational changes of the ion channel which alters selective permeability.
Acid Sensing Ion Channels
Voltage-dependent cell membrane glycoproteins selectively permeable to calcium ions. They are categorized as L-, T-, N-, P-, Q-, and R-types based on the activation and inactivation kinetics, ion specificity, and sensitivity to drugs and toxins. The L- and T-types are present throughout the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and the N-, P-, Q-, & R-types are located in neuronal tissue.

Sodium Channel Blockers
The voltage differences across a membrane. For cellular membranes they are computed by subtracting the voltage measured outside the membrane from the voltage measured inside the membrane. They result from differences of inside versus outside concentration of potassium, sodium, chloride, and other ions across cells' or ORGANELLES membranes. For excitable cells, the resting membrane potentials range between -30 and -100 millivolts. Physical, chemical, or electrical stimuli can make a membrane potential more negative (hyperpolarization), or less negative (depolarization).
TRPC Cation Channels
An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

Sequence Homology, Amino Acid
Receptors, Serotonin, 5-HT3
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.
Amino Acid Substitution
The naturally occurring or experimentally induced replacement of one or more AMINO ACIDS in a protein with another. If a functionally equivalent amino acid is substituted, the protein may retain wild-type activity. Substitution may also diminish, enhance, or eliminate protein function. Experimentally induced substitution is often used to study enzyme activities and binding site properties.

Large-Conductance Calcium-Activated Potassium Channel beta Subunits
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
A molecule that binds to another molecule, used especially to refer to a small molecule that binds specifically to a larger molecule, e.g., an antigen binding to an antibody, a hormone or neurotransmitter binding to a receptor, or a substrate or allosteric effector binding to an enzyme. Ligands are also molecules that donate or accept a pair of electrons to form a coordinate covalent bond with the central metal atom of a coordination complex. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Peptide neurotoxins from the marine fish-hunting snails of the genus CONUS. They contain 13 to 29 amino acids which are strongly basic and are highly cross-linked by disulfide bonds. There are three types of conotoxins, omega-, alpha-, and mu-. OMEGA-CONOTOXINS inhibit voltage-activated entry of calcium into the presynaptic membrane and therefore the release of ACETYLCHOLINE. Alpha-conotoxins inhibit the postsynaptic acetylcholine receptor. Mu-conotoxins prevent the generation of muscle action potentials.

A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that is predominantly expressed in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Defects in the SCN1A gene which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel are associated with DRAVET SYNDROME, generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus, type 2 (GEFS+2), and familial hemiplegic migraine type 3.
Molecular dynamics of the sodium channel pore vary with gating: interactions between P-segment motions and inactivation. (1/8527)Disulfide trapping studies have revealed that the pore-lining (P) segments of voltage-dependent sodium channels undergo sizable motions on a subsecond time scale. Such motions of the pore may be necessary for selective ion translocation. Although traditionally viewed as separable properties, gating and permeation are now known to interact extensively in various classes of channels. We have investigated the interaction of pore motions and voltage-dependent gating in micro1 sodium channels engineered to contain two cysteines within the P segments. Rates of catalyzed internal disulfide formation (kSS) were measured in K1237C+W1531C mutant channels expressed in oocytes. During repetitive voltage-clamp depolarizations, increasing the pulse duration had biphasic effects on the kSS, which first increased to a maximum at 200 msec and then decreased with longer depolarizations. This result suggested that occupancy of an intermediate inactivation state (IM) facilitates pore motions. Consistent with the known antagonism between alkali metals and a component of slow inactivation, kSS varied inversely with external [Na+]o. We examined the converse relationship, namely the effect of pore flexibility on gating, by measuring recovery from inactivation in Y401C+E758C (YC/EC) channels. Under oxidative conditions, recovery from inactivation was slower than in a reduced environment in which the spontaneous YC/EC cross-link is disrupted. The most prominent effects were slowing of a component with intermediate recovery kinetics, with diminution of its relative amplitude. We conclude that occupancy of an intermediate inactivation state facilitates motions of the P segments; conversely, flexibility of the P segments alters an intermediate component of inactivation.

Functional consequences of mutations in the human alpha1A calcium channel subunit linked to familial hemiplegic migraine. (2/8527)Mutations in alpha1A, the pore-forming subunit of P/Q-type calcium channels, are linked to several human diseases, including familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM). We introduced the four missense mutations linked to FHM into human alpha1A-2 subunits and investigated their functional consequences after expression in human embryonic kidney 293 cells. By combining single-channel and whole-cell patch-clamp recordings, we show that all four mutations affect both the biophysical properties and the density of functional channels. Mutation R192Q in the S4 segment of domain I increased the density of functional P/Q-type channels and their open probability. Mutation T666M in the pore loop of domain II decreased both the density of functional channels and their unitary conductance (from 20 to 11 pS). Mutations V714A and I1815L in the S6 segments of domains II and IV shifted the voltage range of activation toward more negative voltages, increased both the open probability and the rate of recovery from inactivation, and decreased the density of functional channels. Mutation V714A decreased the single-channel conductance to 16 pS. Strikingly, the reduction in single-channel conductance induced by mutations T666M and V714A was not observed in some patches or periods of activity, suggesting that the abnormal channel may switch on and off, perhaps depending on some unknown factor. Our data show that the FHM mutations can lead to both gain- and loss-of-function of human P/Q-type calcium channels. (+info)
Individual subunits contribute independently to slow gating of bovine EAG potassium channels. (3/8527)The bovine ether a go-go gene encodes a delayed rectifier potassium channel. In contrast to other delayed rectifiers, its activation kinetics is largely determined by the holding potential and the concentration of extracellular Mg2+, giving rise to slowly activating currents with a characteristic sigmoidal rising phase. Replacement of a single amino acid in the extracellular linker between transmembrane segments S3 and S4 (L322H) strongly reduced the prepulse dependence and accelerated activation by 1 order of magnitude. In addition, compared with the wild type, the half-activation voltage of this mutant was shifted by more than 30 mV to more negative potentials. We used dimeric and tetrameric constructs of the bovine eag1 gene to analyze channels with defined stoichiometry of mutated and wild-type subunits within the tetrameric channel complexes. With increasing numbers of mutated subunits, the channel activation was progressively accelerated, and the sigmoidicity of the current traces was reduced. Based on a quantitative analysis, we show that the slow gating, typical for EAG channels, is mediated by independent conformational transitions of individual subunits, which gain their voltage dependence from the S4 segment. At a given voltage, external Mg2+ increases the probability of a channel subunit to be in the slowly activating conformation, whereas mutation L322H strongly reduces this probability. (+info)
Voltage and calcium use the same molecular determinants to inactivate calcium channels. (4/8527)During sustained depolarization, voltage-gated Ca2+ channels progressively undergo a transition to a nonconducting, inactivated state, preventing Ca2+ overload of the cell. This transition can be triggered either by the membrane potential (voltage-dependent inactivation) or by the consecutive entry of Ca2+ (Ca2+-dependent inactivation), depending on the type of Ca2+ channel. These two types of inactivation are suspected to arise from distinct underlying mechanisms, relying on specific molecular sequences of the different pore-forming Ca2+ channel subunits. Here we report that the voltage-dependent inactivation (of the alpha1A Ca2+ channel) and the Ca2+-dependent inactivation (of the alpha1C Ca2+ channel) are similarly influenced by Ca2+ channel beta subunits. The same molecular determinants of the beta subunit, and therefore the same subunit interactions, influence both types of inactivation. These results strongly suggest that the voltage and the Ca2+-dependent transitions leading to channel inactivation use homologous structures of the different alpha1 subunits and occur through the same molecular process. A model of inactivation taking into account these new data is presented. (+info)
Gating connexin 43 channels reconstituted in lipid vesicles by mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphorylation. (5/8527)The regulation of gap junctional permeability by phosphorylation was examined in a model system in which connexin 43 (Cx43) gap junction hemichannels were reconstituted in lipid vesicles. Cx43 was immunoaffinity-purified from rat brain, and Cx43 channels were reconstituted into unilamellar phospholipid liposomes. The activities of the reconstituted channels were measured by monitoring liposome permeability. Liposomes containing the Cx43 protein were fractionated on the basis of permeability to sucrose using sedimentation in an iso-osmolar density gradient. The gradient allowed separation of the sucrose-permeable and -impermeable liposomes. Liposomes that were permeable to sucrose were also permeable to the communicating dye molecule lucifer yellow. Permeability, and therefore activity of the reconstituted Cx43 channels, were directly dependent on the state of Cx43 phosphorylation. The permeability of liposomes containing Cx43 channels was increased by treatment of liposomes with calf intestinal phosphatase. Moreover, liposomes formed with Cx43 that had been dephosphorylated by calf intestinal phosphatase treatment showed increased permeability to sucrose. The role of phosphorylation in the gating mechanism of Cx43 channels was supported further by the observation that phosphorylation of Cx43 by mitogen-activated protein kinase reversibly reduced the permeability of liposomes containing dephosphorylated Cx43. Our results show a direct correlation between gap junctional permeability and the phosphorylation state of Cx43. (+info)
Calmodulin mediates calcium-dependent activation of the intermediate conductance KCa channel, IKCa1. (6/8527)Small and intermediate conductance Ca2+-activated K+ channels play a crucial role in hyperpolarizing the membrane potential of excitable and nonexcitable cells. These channels are exquisitely sensitive to cytoplasmic Ca2+, yet their protein-coding regions do not contain consensus Ca2+-binding motifs. We investigated the involvement of an accessory protein in the Ca2+-dependent gating of hIKCa1, a human intermediate conductance channel expressed in peripheral tissues. Cal- modulin was found to interact strongly with the cytoplasmic carboxyl (C)-tail of hIKCa1 in a yeast two-hybrid system. Deletion analyses defined a requirement for the first 62 amino acids of the C-tail, and the binding of calmodulin to this region did not require Ca2+. The C-tail of hSKCa3, a human neuronal small conductance channel, also bound calmodulin, whereas that of a voltage-gated K+ channel, mKv1.3, did not. Calmodulin co-precipitated with the channel in cell lines transfected with hIKCa1, but not with mKv1. 3-transfected lines. A mutant calmodulin, defective in Ca2+ sensing but retaining binding to the channel, dramatically reduced current amplitudes when co-expressed with hIKCa1 in mammalian cells. Co-expression with varying amounts of wild-type and mutant calmodulin resulted in a dominant-negative suppression of current, consistent with four calmodulin molecules being associated with the channel. Taken together, our results suggest that Ca2+-calmodulin-induced conformational changes in all four subunits are necessary for the channel to open. (+info)
Voltage sensors in domains III and IV, but not I and II, are immobilized by Na+ channel fast inactivation. (7/8527)Using site-directed fluorescent labeling, we examined conformational changes in the S4 segment of each domain of the human skeletal muscle sodium channel (hSkM1). The fluorescence signals from S4 segments in domains I and II follow activation and are unaffected as fast inactivation settles. In contrast, the fluorescence signals from S4 segments in domains III and IV show kinetic components during activation and deactivation that correlate with fast inactivation and charge immobilization. These results indicate that in hSkM1, the S4 segments in domains III and IV are responsible for voltage-sensitive conformational changes linked to fast inactivation and are immobilized by fast inactivation, while the S4 segments in domains I and II are unaffected by fast inactivation.

Distinct sensitivities of OmpF and PhoE porins to charged modulators. (8/8527)The inhibition of the anion-selective PhoE porin by ATP and of the cation-selective OmpF porin by polyamines has been previously documented. In the present study, we have extended the comparison of the inhibitor-porin pairs by investigating the effect of anions (ATP and aspartate) and positively charged polyamines (spermine and cadaverine) on both OmpF and PhoE with the patch-clamp technique, and by comparing directly the gating kinetics of the channels modulated by their respective substrates. The novel findings reported here are (1) that the activity of PhoE is completely unaffected by polyamines, and (2) that the kinetic changes induced by ATP on PhoE or polyamines on OmpF suggest different mechanisms of inhibition. ATP induces a high degree of flickering in the PhoE-mediated current and appears to behave as a blocker of ion flow during its presumed transport through PhoE. Polyamines modulate the kinetics of openings and closings of OmpF, in addition to promoting a blocker-like flickering activity. The strong correlation between sensitivity to inhibitors and ion selectivity suggests that some common molecular determinants are involved in these two properties and is in agreement with the hypothesis that polyamines bind inside the pore of cationic porins.

Missing channels in two-colour microarray experiments: Combining single-channel and two-channel data | BMC Bioinformatics |...
There are mechanisms, notably ozone degradation, that can damage a single channel of two-channel microarray experiments. Resulting analyses therefore often choose between the unacceptable inclusion of poor quality data or the unpalatable exclusion of some (possibly a lot of) good quality data along with the bad. Two such approaches would be a single channel analysis using some of the data from all of the arrays, and an analysis of all of the data, but only from unaffected arrays. In this paper we examine a combined approach to the analysis of such affected experiments that uses all of the unaffected data. A simulation experiment shows that while a single channel analysis performs relatively well when the majority of arrays are affected, and excluding affected arrays performs relatively well when few arrays are affected (as would be expected in both cases), the combined approach out-performs both. There are benefits to actively estimating the key-parameter of the approach, but whether these compensate

Modulation of the voltage sensor resting state through Hanatoxin and Stromatoxin
Voltage-gated ion channels play fundamental roles in neural excitability, they are for instance responsible for every single heart beat in our bodies, and dysfunctional channels cause disease that can be even lethal. Understanding how the voltage sensor of these channels function is critical for drug design of compounds targeting neuronal excitability.. The opening and closing of the pore in voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels is caused by the arginine-rich S4 helix of the voltage sensor domain (VSD) moving in response to an external potential. In fact, VSDs are remarkably efficient at turning membrane potential into conformational changes, which likely makes them the smallest existing biological engines. Exactly how this is accomplished is not yet fully known and an area of hot debate, especially due to the lack of structures of the resting and intermediate states along the activation pathway. In this thesis I study how the VSD activation works and show how toxic compounds modulate channel ...

Ion channel conductance can be influenced by electrostatic effects originating from fixed surface charges that are remote from the selectivity filter. To explore whether surface charges contribute to the conductance properties of Kir2.1 channels, unitary conductance was measured in cell-attached recordings of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells transfected with Kir2.1 channels over a range of K + activities (4.6-293.5 mM) using single-channel measurements as well as nonstationary fluctuation analysis for low K + activities. K + ion concentrations were shown to equilibrate across the cell membrane in our studies using the voltage-sensitive dye DiBAC 4 (5). The dependence of γ on the K + activity (a K ) was fit well by a modified Langmuir binding isotherm, with a nonzero intercept as a K approaches 0 mM, suggesting electrostatic surface charge effects. Following the addition of 100 mM N-methyl-D-glucamine (NMG + ), a nonpermeant, nonblocking cation or following pretreatment with 50 mM ...

2 TMS ( P-loop) Ca2+-gated K+ channel, MthK (see Jiang et al., 2002 for the crystal structure, and Parfenova et al., 2006 for mutations affecting open probability). For the studies of ion permeation and Ca2+ blockage, see Derebe et al., 2011. (structures: 3LDD_A and 2OGU_A.). Voltage-dependent K+ channels including MthK which lacks a canonical voltage sensor can undergo a gating process known as C-type inactivation, which involves entry into a nonconducting state through conformational changes near the channels selectivity filter (Thomson and Rothberg, 2010). C-type inactivation may involve movements of transmembrane voltage sensor domains. In the absence of Ca2+, a single structure in a closed state was observed by cryoEM that was highly flexible with large rocking motions of the gating ring and bending of pore-lining helices (Fan et al. 2020). In Ca2+-bound conditions, several open-inactivated conformations were present with the different channel conformations being distinguished by rocking ...
In this study, we found that mutation E219R shifts Q-V relationship leftwards by 126 mV at 0 Ca2+ compared with WT and changes slope factor from 50 to 38 mV, indicating an increase of gating charge (Fig. 1A,B). In addition to the direct effects on voltage sensor movements, the mutation also shifts G-V relationship rightwards at 0 Ca2+ and increases Ca2+ sensitivity (Fig. 1C-F), which are the results of an electrostatic interaction between E219R and E321/E324 (Figs. 2 and 3) that alters the coupling among the activation gate, voltage sensor, and Ca2+ binding (Fig. 4; Table 2).. Ion channels often contain distinct structural domains for sensing physiological stimuli and the pore-activation gate. The coupling among these domains during channel activation is an important molecular process that has not been fully understood. One basic question is as follows: what kind of changes in the properties of channel function would indicate a change of coupling? It has been elegantly shown that, in ...

Na Channel Has a quick onset and quickly turns off: inactivating channel. K is the opposite with slow onset and slow turn off: noninactivating channel. This difference is caused by differences in the two proteins. The Na channel has two gates: the activation gate and the inactivation gate. The activation gate is sensitive to the potential. When the activation gate is closed the inactivation gate is closed. When the inside of the cell is depolarized, the activation gate quickly opens.

Side pockets provide the basis for a new mechanism of Kv channel-specific inhibition. - Oxford Neuroscience
Most known small-molecule inhibitors of voltage-gated ion channels have poor subtype specificity because they interact with a highly conserved binding site in the central cavity. Using alanine-scanning mutagenesis, electrophysiological recordings and molecular modeling, we have identified a new drug-binding site in Kv1.x channels. We report that Psora-4 can discriminate between related Kv channel subtypes because, in addition to binding the central pore cavity, it binds a second, less conserved site located in side pockets formed by the backsides of S5 and S6, the S4-S5 linker, part of the voltage sensor and the pore helix. Simultaneous drug occupation of both binding sites results in an extremely stable nonconducting state that confers high affinity, cooperativity, use-dependence and selectivity to Psora-4 inhibition of Kv1.x channels. This new mechanism of inhibition represents a molecular basis for the development of a new class of allosteric and selective voltage-gated channel inhibitors.
Probing the Geometry of the Inner Vestibule of BK Channels with Sugars | JGP
The above discussion suggests that the inner vestibule would be large enough for sugars to enter. On this basis, the presence of sugars in the vestibule would be expected to interfere with the passage of K+ from the intracellular bulk solution through the vestibule to the selectivity filter. Our data support this conclusion. For sucrose ≤1 M, glycerol and glucose ≤2 M, and for voltages ≤200 mV, diffusion-limited currents were not observed, yet sugars still reduced the unitary currents (Figs. 1 and 2). Because the diffusion of K+ from the bulk solution into the vestibule was not rate limiting for these experiments, then these observations suggest that sugars are entering the vestibule and slowing the transit of K+ through the vestibule to the selectivity filter.. Sugars within the vestibule would reduce the effective area available for diffusion through the vestibule. An empirical model that assumed that the fractional reduction of outward current was proportional to the fractional volume ...

Archaeal TRIC family homologue of 205 aas and 7 TMSs. In animals, Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) or endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is crucial for muscle contraction, cell growth, apoptosis, learning and memory. The eukaryotic TRIC channels are cation channels balancing the SR and ER membrane potentials, and are implicated in Ca2+ signaling and homeostasis. Kasuya et al. 2016 presented crystal structures of two prokaryotic TRIC channels in the closed state and conducted structure-based functional analyses of these channels. Each trimer subunit consists of seven TMSs with two inverted 3 TMS repeats (Silverio and Saier 2011). The electrophysiological, biochemical and biophysical analyses revealed that TRIC channels possess an ion-conducting pore within each subunit, and that trimer formation contributes to the stability of the protein. The symmetrically related TMS2 and TMS5 helices are kinked at conserved glycine clusters, and these kinks are important for channel activity. The ...
Voltage-dependent inactivation gating at the selectivity filter of the MthK K+ channel | JGP
To describe the [K+]ext and voltage dependence of Po at depolarized voltages, we developed a series of kinetic schemes in which both K+ binding and hyperpolarization are coupled to relative energetic stabilization of the open-conductive state over the open-inactivated state. Rate constants and voltage dependences for transitions among conductive and inactivated states in the schemes were constrained by two-dimensional distributions of adjacent open and closed dwell-times obtained over a range of [K+]ext and voltage for each channel (Rothberg and Magleby, 1998, 1999, 2000). Schemes were ranked statistically after applying a penalty for increasing the number of free parameters in a scheme, according to Eq. 6.. We took the approach of fitting the simplest scheme, with one open-conductive (O) and one open-inactivated (I) state, and then adding additional states (O or I) until a further addition yielded no significant improvement in the maximum likelihood value for the scheme. For each scheme, we ...

Structural modellings approach of Nav1.7 have identified an aromatic residue within the cytoplasm-proximal portion of each of the pore-lining S6 helices that were predicted to form a hydrophobic ring at the cytoplasmic end of the pore that stabilizes the channels pre-open state. This element is predicted to raise the energy barrier for the movement of S6, which is necessary to open the channels pore, thus stabilizing the closed or pre-open state of the channel . ...

Properties of single ion channel currents elicted by a pulse of agonist concentration or voltage | Philosophical Transactions...
Experiments are often performed to study the behaviour of a single ion channel in response to a perturbation produced by a step change (jump) in a variable that influences its equilibrium position, for example a voltage jump or jump in agonist concentration. It is also common to apply a rectangular pulse (consisting of an on jump followed by an off jump); for example brief concentration pulses are used to mimic synaptic transmission.. Assuming a general Markov mechanism for channel dynamics, we obtain theoretical probability distributions of observable characteristics that describe the non-stationary behaviour of single ion channels which are subject to a jump, or to a pulse of finite duration. These characteristics are such things as open times, shut times, first latency, burst length and length of activation. We concentrate particularly on jumps to or from a zero level of agonist, which necessitates some modification to the usual arguments to cope with having some absorbing sets of states. ...
Voltage-Gated Ion Channels in Cancer Cell Proliferation - Sophion
Changes of the electrical charges across the surface cell membrane are absolutely necessary to maintain cellular homeostasis in physiological as well as in pathological conditions. The opening of ion channels alter the charge distribution across the surface membrane as they allow the diffusion of ions such as K+, Ca++, Cl−, Na+. Traditionally, voltage-gated ion channels (VGIC) are known to play fundamental roles in controlling rapid bioelectrical signaling including action potential and/or contraction. However, several investigations have revealed that these classes of proteins can also contribute significantly to cell mitotic biochemical signaling, cell cycle progression, as well as cell volume regulation. All these functions are critically important for cancer cell proliferation. Interestingly, a variety of distinct VGICs are expressed in different cancer cell types, including metastasis but not in the tissues from which these tumors were generated. Given the increasing evidence suggesting ...
Ion Channel Signalling in Cancer: From Molecular Mechanisms to Therapeutics | Frontiers Research Topic
Mammalian cells are equipped with a large number of ion channels with diverse activation mechanisms and/or modalities. Ion channels are mainly located in the plasma membrane and thus serve crucial molecular mechanisms that transduce extracellular physical, biochemical or biological signals to intracellular events via mediating the movement of ions, particularly Ca2+ entry to elevate the intracellular Ca2+ level. Ion channels are also found in the membrane of intracellular organelles and regulate the ion homeostasis in such intracellular compartments as well as the cytosol. As such, ion channels play an important role in a wide range of physiological processes, which are not restricted to cell excitability. Accumulating evidence show that alterations in the expression and/or function of both the ion-forming or auxiliary subunits occur in neoplastic and malignant cells, markedly influencing cell apoptosis, proliferation, migration and invasion. In addition, ion channels significantly modulate the function
Modulatory drug action in an allosteric Markov model of ion channel behaviour: biphasic effects with access-limited binding to...
Concentration-dependent biphasic effects of drugs on ion channel activity have been reported in a variety of preparations, usually with stimulatory effects seen at low concentrations followed by increasingly dominant inhibition at higher levels. Such behaviour is often interpreted as evidence for the existence of separate modulatory drug binding sites. We demonstrate in this paper that it is possible for biphasic effects to be produced in an allosteric model of a ligand-activated ion channel, where diffusion-limited binding of the modulatory drug is restricted to either a stimulatory or an inhibitory site (but not both) because of steric overlap. The possibility of such an interaction mechanism should be kept in mind when interpreting experimental data if stoichiometric evidence from complementary techniques suggests that only one drug molecule is bound per receptor/ion channel complex.. ...
Patent US6650771 - Color management system incorporating parameter control channels - Google Patents
A system that stores a color management transform, typically using a grid table, where one or more of the input channels represents parameters used to control the reproduction of the conventional color image channels. The invention augments the existing grid-table based transform structure with additional channels to control the operation of the color models involved. These additional channels are not the conventional calorimetric or colorant image channels such as red, green, and blue, but are to control other aspects of the color transformation, such as exposure level or saturation. The augmentation also includes identification information that identifies the type of control (exposure, grey component replacement, etc.) the extra channels provide.
The Free Energy Barrier for Arginine Gating Charge Translation Is Altered by Mutations in the Voltage Sensor Domain
The gating of voltage-gated ion channels is controlled by the arginine-rich S4 helix of the voltage-sensor domain moving in response to an external potential. Recent studies have suggested that S4 moves in three to four steps to open the conducting pore, thus visiting several intermediate conformations during gating. However, the exact conformational changes are not known in detail. For instance, it has been suggested that there is a local rotation in the helix corresponding to short segments of a 3(10)-helix moving along S4 during opening and closing. Here, we have explored the energetics of the transition between the fully open state (based on the X-ray structure) and the first intermediate state towards channel closing (C-1), modeled from experimental constraints. We show that conformations within 3 angstrom of the X-ray structure are obtained in simulations starting from the C-1 model, and directly observe the previously suggested sliding 3(10)-helix region in S4. Through systematic free ...

Voltage-gated potassium (KV) channels open in response to membrane depolarization and are present in many cell types. In excitable cells, KV channels serve as the primary mechanism of repolarization of action potentials, whereas in nonexcitable cells, KV channels control the cell resting potential. Given the role of KV channels, it is not surprising that they regulate many fundamental physiological processes and are therefore considered important therapeutic targets for treatment of autoimmune, metabolic, neurological, and cardiovascular disorders, as well as cancer (Wulff et al., 2009). Despite these facts, there has been limited success in the clinical development of therapeutic agents that target KV channels. One reason for this is that many of the small molecules identified to date lack true molecular selectivity across members of the KV and other ion channel families, which could significantly compromise their therapeutic index. The lack of ion channel selectivity seems to be due to binding ...

Symmetry | Free Full-Text | Effect of Symmetry Breaking on Electronic Band Structure: Gap Opening at the High Symmetry Points ...
Some characteristic features of band structures, like the band degeneracy at high symmetry points or the existence of energy gaps, usually reflect the symmetry of the crystal or, more precisely, the symmetry of the wave vector group at the relevant points of the Brillouin zone. In this paper, we will illustrate this property by considering two-dimensional (2D)-hexagonal lattices characterized by a possible two-fold degenerate band at the K points with a linear dispersion (Dirac points). By combining scanning tunneling spectroscopy and angle-resolved photoemission, we study the electronic properties of a similar system: the Ag/Cu(111) interface reconstruction characterized by a hexagonal superlattice, and we show that the gap opening at the K points of the Brillouin zone of the reconstructed cell is due to the symmetry breaking of the wave vector group.
Open and Closed Case | Science Signaling
Voltage-dependent ion channels are gated by voltage sensors that show a switchlike response to voltage differences across the membrane. Tao et al. used mutagenesis, electrophysiology, and x-ray crystallography to gain insight into the molecular basis of this response in voltage-dependent potassium channels. An occluded site was identified that catalyzes translation of positive charges across the membrane. The closed channel appears to be associated with a distribution of conformations, depending on the degree of hyperpolarization of the membrane, whereas the open channel appears to be associated with a specific conformation. Thus, the transition of the ion channel from open to closed occurs over a very small voltage difference.. X. Tao, A. Lee, W. Limapichat, D. A. Dougherty, R.

Voltage-Dependent Inactivation of MscS Occurs Independently of the Positively Charged Residues in the Transmembrane Domain<...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Voltage-Dependent Inactivation of MscS Occurs Independently of the Positively Charged Residues in the Transmembrane Domain. AU - Nomura, Takeshi. AU - Sokabe, Masahiro. AU - Yoshimura, Kenjiro. PY - 2016. Y1 - 2016. N2 - MscS (mechanosensitive channel of small conductance) is ubiquitously found among bacteria and plays a major role in avoiding cell lysis upon rapid osmotic downshock. The gating of MscS is modulated by voltage, but little is known about how MscS senses membrane potential. Three arginine residues (Arg-46, Arg-54, and Arg-74) in the transmembrane (TM) domain are possible to respond to voltage judging from the MscS structure. To examine whether these residues are involved in the voltage dependence of MscS, we neutralized the charge of each residue by substituting with asparagine (R46N, R54N, and R74N). Mechanical threshold for the opening of the expressed wild-type MscS and asparagine mutants did not change with voltage in the range from -40 to +100 mV. By contrast, ...
New study challenges established mechanism about selectivity of cellular ion channels
The cell membranes of all organisms contain ion channels that permit ions to pass into or out of the cell, and these channels play extremely important roles in fundamental physiological processes such as heartbeats and the rapid conduction of signals along neurons. An important property of these ion channels is their selective conductivity-they selectively permit the passage of particular ions. For example, potassium channels more readily permit the passage of potassium ions than the passage of sodium ions, despite the fact that potassium ions are larger.
Temperature-robust neural activity using feedback control of ion channel expression | BMC Neuroscience | Full Text
Neural activity depends on the kinetic properties of ion channels expressed in neurons. Small changes in these properties can dramatically affect synaptic integration, membrane excitability and circuit function. Like all biochemical processes, the kinetics of ion channels have an exponential temperature dependence and the exponent (the Q10) differs several-fold between ion channel types within species [1-3]. In warm-blooded animals such as mammals, deviations in temperature of only a few degrees Celsius can thus disrupt neural activity and lead to loss of consciousness or death. However, cold blooded animals, including all invertebrates, manage to survive and function despite temperature fluctuations of tens of degrees Celsius . How is this robustness achieved? One possibility is that the self-regulating, activity-dependent mechanisms that maintain neuronal properties in cold-blooded animals operate in a way that specifically gives rise to temperature robustness. In this work we develop a ...

Voltage-gated ion channels are present in the excitable cell membranes of heart, skeletal muscle, brain and nerve cells. Blocking or modulating such channels can have a therapeutic effect, or may interfere with normal cell function. As a result, compounds that affect voltage-gated ion channels are important targets in drug discovery.
NMDARs retained in circulating RBCs remain functional and keep responding to stimulation with glutamate, HCA, or NMDA as well as to the inhibition by MK-801 (Figs. 3-6). Calcium transport through the receptor is electrogenic, putting NMDARs in line with other calcium-transporting ion channels (Fig. 4). The number of such ion channels in RBC is rather limited and their molecular identity often remains unknown (28). Among the TRP channels, only TRPC6 is described in RBC (17). Furthermore, there is biochemical and functional evidence for a CaV2.1 channel (1, 71). There are numerous electrophysiological reports of Ca2+-permeable channels that can be grouped in two categories: nonselective voltage activated cation channels (NSVAC; e.g., Refs. 4, 29) and receptor-mediated channels (e.g., Refs. 13, 25).

BUSINESS OVERVIEW - STOCKS - ICGN - Icagen, Inc.
Business Overview from 10-K filing for Icagen, Inc.:. We are a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel orally-administered small molecule drugs that modulate ion channel targets. Ions are charged particles, such as sodium, potassium, calcium and chloride. Ion channels are protein structures found in virtually every cell of the human body. Ion channels span the cell membrane and regulate the flow of ions into and out of cells. There are currently over 35 drugs marketed by third parties for multiple indications that modulate ion channels according to data from IMS Health. We believe this demonstrates that ion channels are attractive drug targets. Utilizing our proprietary know-how and integrated scientific and drug development capabilities, we have identified multiple drug candidates that modulate ion channels. ...

Protein tags regulate key ion channel
Sumoylation has recently been recognized as an important mechanism of cellular activity but until now its 60-or-so known targets were primarily nuclear proteins, mostly involved in gene transcription. The findings expand the influence of SUMO-related activity in biology, Goldstein said, a great and exciting surprise. There is still a good deal that we dont understand about this system, he said, but now we know where to look and why we must go there. SUMO may very well act on other ion channels that have yet to reveal their function because they were silent like K2P1 ...
Mechanism-specific assay design facilitates the discovery of Nav1.7-selective inhibitors
January 8, 2018. Subtype-selective modulation of ion channels is often important, but extremely difficult to achieve for drug development. Using Nav1.7 as an example, we show that this challenge could be attributed to poor design in ion channel assays, which fail to detect most potent and selective compounds and are biased toward nonselective mechanisms. By exploiting different drug binding sites and modes of channel gating, we successfully direct a membrane potential assay toward non-pore-blocking mechanisms and identify Nav1.7-selective compounds. Our mechanistic approach to assay design addresses a significant hurdle in Nav1.7 drug discovery and is applicable to many other ion channels. ...
