Intracellular receptors that can be found in the cytoplasm or in the nucleus. They bind to extracellular signaling molecules that migrate through or are transported across the CELL MEMBRANE. Many members of this class of receptors occur in the cytoplasm and are transported to the CELL NUCLEUS upon ligand-binding where they signal via DNA-binding and transcription regulation. Also included in this category are receptors found on INTRACELLULAR MEMBRANES that act via mechanisms similar to CELL SURFACE RECEPTORS.

A G-protein-coupled, proteinase-activated receptor that is expressed in a variety of tissues including ENDOTHELIUM; LEUKOCYTES; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. The receptor is activated by TRYPSIN, which cleaves off the N-terminal peptide from the receptor. The new N-terminal peptide is a cryptic ligand for the receptor. The uncleaved receptor can also be activated by the N-terminal peptide present on the activated THROMBIN RECEPTOR and by small synthetic peptides that contain the unmasked N-terminal sequence.
A family of proteinase-activated receptors that are specific for THROMBIN. They are found primarily on PLATELETS and on ENDOTHELIAL CELLS. Activation of thrombin receptors occurs through the proteolytic action of THROMBIN, which cleaves the N-terminal peptide from the receptor to reveal a new N-terminal peptide that is a cryptic ligand for the receptor. The receptors signal through HETEROTRIMERIC GTP-BINDING PROTEINS. Small synthetic peptides that contain the unmasked N-terminal peptide sequence can also activate the receptor in the absence of proteolytic activity.

A comparison of affinity constants for muscarine-sensitive acetylcholine receptors in guinea-pig atrial pacemaker cells at 29 degrees C and in ileum at 29 degrees C and 37 degrees C. (1/2700)

1 The affinity of 17 compounds for muscarine-sensitive acetylcholine receptors in atrial pacemaker cells and ileum of the guinea-pig has been measured at 29 degrees C in Ringer-Locke solution. Measurements were also made at 37 degrees C with 7 of them. 2 Some of the compounds had much higher affinity for the receptors in the ileum than for those in the atria. For the most selective compound, 4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine methiodide, the difference was approximately 20-fold. The receptors in the atria are therefore different the structure from those in the ileum. 3 The effect of temperature on affinity are not the same for all the compounds, tested indicating different enthalpies and entropies of adsorption and accounting for some of the difficulty experienced in predicting the affinity of new compounds.  (+info)

Alternative sulfonylurea receptor expression defines metabolic sensitivity of K-ATP channels in dopaminergic midbrain neurons. (2/2700)

ATP-sensitive potassium (K-ATP) channels couple the metabolic state to cellular excitability in various tissues. Several isoforms of the K-ATP channel subunits, the sulfonylurea receptor (SUR) and inwardly rectifying K channel (Kir6.X), have been cloned, but the molecular composition and functional diversity of native neuronal K-ATP channels remain unresolved. We combined functional analysis of K-ATP channels with expression profiling of K-ATP subunits at the level of single substantia nigra (SN) neurons in mouse brain slices using an RT-multiplex PCR protocol. In contrast to GABAergic neurons, single dopaminergic SN neurons displayed alternative co-expression of either SUR1, SUR2B or both SUR isoforms with Kir6.2. Dopaminergic SN neurons expressed alternative K-ATP channel species distinguished by significant differences in sulfonylurea affinity and metabolic sensitivity. In single dopaminergic SN neurons, co-expression of SUR1 + Kir6.2, but not of SUR2B + Kir6.2, correlated with functional K-ATP channels highly sensitive to metabolic inhibition. In contrast to wild-type, surviving dopaminergic SN neurons of homozygous weaver mouse exclusively expressed SUR1 + Kir6.2 during the active period of dopaminergic neurodegeneration. Therefore, alternative expression of K-ATP channel subunits defines the differential response to metabolic stress and constitutes a novel candidate mechanism for the differential vulnerability of dopaminergic neurons in response to respiratory chain dysfunction in Parkinson's disease.  (+info)

Inward rectification in KATP channels: a pH switch in the pore. (3/2700)

Inward-rectifier potassium channels (Kir channels) stabilize the resting membrane potential and set a threshold for excitation in many types of cell. This function arises from voltage-dependent rectification of these channels due to blockage by intracellular polyamines. In all Kir channels studied to date, the voltage-dependence of rectification is either strong or weak. Here we show that in cardiac as well as in cloned KATP channels (Kir6.2 + sulfonylurea receptor) polyamine-mediated rectification is not fixed but changes with intracellular pH in the physiological range: inward-rectification is prominent at basic pH, while at acidic pH rectification is very weak. The pH-dependence of polyamine block is specific for KATP as shown in experiments with other Kir channels. Systematic mutagenesis revealed a titratable C-terminal histidine residue (H216) in Kir6.2 to be the structural determinant, and electrostatic interaction between this residue and polyamines was shown to be the molecular mechanism underlying pH-dependent rectification. This pH-dependent block of KATP channels may represent a novel and direct link between excitation and intracellular pH.  (+info)

Differential expression of the mRNA for the vanilloid receptor subtype 1 in cells of the adult rat dorsal root and nodose ganglia and its downregulation by axotomy. (4/2700)

Sensitivity to the pungent vanilloid, capsaicin, defines a subpopulation of primary sensory neurons that are mainly polymodal nociceptors. The recently cloned vanilloid receptor subtype 1 (VR1) is activated by capsaicin and noxious heat. Using combined in situ hybridization and histochemical methods, we have characterized in sensory ganglia the expression of VR1 mRNA. We show that this receptor is almost exclusively expressed by neurofilament-negative small- and medium-sized dorsal root ganglion cells. Within this population, VR1 mRNA is detected at widely varying levels in both the NGF receptor (trkA)-positive, peptide-producing cells that elicit neurogenic inflammation and the functionally less characterized glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor-responsive cells that bind lectin Griffonia simplicifolia isolectin B4 (IB4). Cells without detectable levels of VR1 mRNA are found in both classes. A subpopulation of the IB4-binding cells that produce somatostatin has relatively low levels of VR1 mRNA. A previously uncharacterized population of very small cells that express the receptor tyrosine kinase (RET) and that do not label for trkA or IB4-binding has the highest relative levels of VR1 mRNA. The majority of small visceral sensory neurons of the nodose ganglion also express VR1 mRNA, in conjunction with the BDNF receptor trkB but not trkA. Axotomy results in the downregulation of VR1 mRNA in dorsal root ganglion cells. Our data emphasize the heterogeneity of VR1 mRNA expression by subclasses of small sensory neurons, and this may result in their differential sensitivity to chemical and noxious heat stimuli. Our results also indicate that peripherally derived trophic factors may regulate levels of VR1 mRNA.  (+info)

Lipolytic action of cholera toxin on fat cells. Re-examination of the concept implicating GM1 ganglioside as the native membrane receptor. (5/2700)

The possible role of galactosyl-N-acetylgalactosaminyl-[N-acetylneuraminyl]-galactosylglucosylceramide (GM1) ganglioside in the lipolytic activity of cholera toxin on isolated fat cells has been examined. Analyses of the ganglioside content and composition of intact fat cells, their membranous ghosts, and the total particulate fraction of these cells indicate that N-acetylneuraminylgalactosylglucosylceramide (GM3) represents the major ganglioside, with substantial amounts of N-acetylgalactosaminyl-[N-acetylneuraminyl]-galactosylglucosylceramide (GM2) and smaller amounts of other higher homologues also present. Native GM1 was not detected in any of these preparations. Examination of the relative capacities of various exogenously added radiolabeled sphingolipids to bind to the cells indicated that GM2 and glucosylsphingosine were accumulated by the cells to extents comparable to GM1. Galactosylsphingosine and sulfatide also exhibited significant, although lesser, binding affinities for the cells. The adipocytes appeared to nonspecifically bind exogenously added GM1; saturation of binding sites for GM1 could not be observed up to the highest concentration tested (2 X 10(-4) M), wherein about 7 X 10(9) molecules were associated with the cells. Essentially all of this exogenously added GM1 was found bound to the plasma membrane "ghost" fraction. Investigation of the biological responses of the cells confirmed their sensitivities to both cholera toxin and epinephrine-stimulated lipolysis, as well as the lag period displayed during the toxin's action. While we could confirm that the toxin's lipolytic activity can be enhanced by prior treatment of the fat cells with GM1, several of the observed characteristics of this phenomenon differ from earlier reported findings. Accordingly, added GM1 was able to enhance only the subsequent rate, but not the extent, of toxin-stimulated glycerol release (lipolysis) from the cells. We also were unable to confirm the ability of GM1 to enhance the toxin's activity at either saturating or at low toxin concentrations. The limited ability of added GM1 to enhance the toxin's activity appeared in a unique bell-shaped dose-response manner. The inability of high levels of GM1 to stimulate a dose of toxin that was ineffective on native cells suggests that the earlier reported ability of crude brain gangliosides to accomplish this was due to some component other than GM1 in the crude extract. While several glycosphingolipids and some other carbohydrate-containing substances that were tested lacked the ability to mimic the enhancing effect of GM1, 4-methylumbelliferyl-beta-D-galactoside exhibited an effect similar to, although less pronounced than, that of GM1. The findings in these studies are unable to lend support to the earlier hypothesis that (a) GM1 is cholera toxin's naturally occurring membrane receptor on native fat cells, and (b) the ability of exogenously added GM1 to enhance the toxin's lipolytic activity represents the specific creation of additional natural receptors on adipocytes...  (+info)

Lectin receptor sites on rat liver cell nuclear membranes. (6/2700)

The presence and localization of lectin receptor sites on rat liver cell nuclear and other endomembranes was studied by light and electron microscopy using fluorescein and ferritin-coupled lectin conjugates. Isolated nuclei labelled with fluorescein-conjugated Concanavalin A (Con A) or wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) often showed membrane staining, which sometimes was especially bright on small stretches of the nuclear surface. Unlabelled nuclei and nuclei with a complete ring fluorescence were also seen. The nuclear fluorescence corresponded in intensity to that seen on the surface of isolated rat liver cells. Con A-ferritin particles were seldom detected on the cytoplasmic surface of the intact nuclear envelope. However, at places where the 2 leaflets of the envelope were widely separated or where the outer nuclear membrane was partly torn away, heavy labelling was seen on the cisternal surface of both the inner and outer nuclear membranes. Labelling with Con A-ferritin was also found on the cisternal side of rough endoplasmic reticulum present in the specimens. No labelling was seen on the cytoplasmic surface of mitochondrial outer membrane. The results demonstrate the presence of binding sites for Con A and WGA in nuclei and an asymmetric localization of these sites on the cisternal side of ribosome-carrying endomembranes in rat liver cells.  (+info)

Kinetic analysis of drug-receptor interactions of long-acting beta2 sympathomimetics in isolated receptor membranes: evidence against prolonged effects of salmeterol and formoterol on receptor-coupled adenylyl cyclase. (7/2700)

The long-acting beta2 sympathomimetics salmeterol and formoterol have been presumed to exert their prolonged action either by binding to an accessory binding site ("exo-site") near the beta2 adrenoceptor or by their high affinity for beta2 adrenoceptors and correspondingly slow dissociation. Whereas most studies with salmeterol had been done in intact tissues, which have slow diffusion and compartmentation of drugs in lipophilic phases, that restrict drug access to the receptor biophase, we used purified receptor membranes from rat lung and disaggregated calf tracheal myocytes as model systems. Binding experiments were designed to measure the slow dissociation of agonists by means of delayed association of (-)-[125I]iodopindolol. Rat lung membranes were pretreated with high concentrations of agonists (salmeterol, formoterol, isoprenaline) before dissociation was induced by 50-fold dilution. Half-times of association of (-)-[125I]iodopindolol remained unchanged compared with untreated controls, indicating that dissociation of agonists occurred in less than 2 min. Adenylyl cyclase experiments were designed to determine the on and off kinetics of agonists to beta2 adrenoceptors by measuring the rate of receptor-induced cyclic AMP (cAMP) formation. Experiments were performed in tracheal membranes characterized by high Vmax values of cAMP formation. Adenylyl cyclase activation occurred simultaneously with the addition of the agonist, continued linearly with time for 60 min, and ceased immediately after the antagonist was added. Similarly, when receptor membranes were preincubated in a small volume with high salmeterol concentrations, there was a linear increase in cAMP formation, which was immediately interrupted by a 100-fold dilution of the reaction mixture. This militates against the exo-site hypothesis. On the other hand, dissociation by dilution was much less when membranes were preincubated with a large volume of salmeterol at the same concentration, indicating that physicochemical effects, and not exo-site binding, underlie its prolonged mode of action.  (+info)

The central cannabinoid receptor (CB1) mediates inhibition of nitric oxide production by rat microglial cells. (8/2700)

Upon activation, brain microglial cells release proinflammatory mediators, such as nitric oxide (NO), which may play an important role in the central nervous system antibacterial, antiviral, and antitumor activities. However, excessive release of NO has been postulated to elicit immune-mediated neurodegenerative inflammatory processes and to cause brain injury. In the present study, the effect of cannabinoids on the release of NO from endotoxin/cytokine-activated rat cortical microglial cells was evaluated. A drug dose-dependent (0.1 microM-8 microM) inhibition of NO release from rat microglial cells was exerted by the cannabinoid receptor high-affinity binding enantiomer (-)-CP55940. In contrast, a minimal inhibitory effect was exerted by the lower affinity binding paired enantiomer (+)-CP56667. Pretreatment of microglial cells with the Galphai/Galphao protein inactivator pertussis toxin, cyclic AMP reconstitution with the cell-permeable analog dibutyryl-cAMP, or treatment of cells with the Galphas activator cholera toxin, resulted in reversal of the (-)-CP55940-mediated inhibition of NO release. A similar reversal in (-)-CP55940-mediated inhibition of NO release was effected when microglial cells were pretreated with the central cannabinoid receptor (CB1) selective antagonist SR141716A. Mutagenic reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, Western immunoblot assay using a CB1 receptor amine terminal domain-specific antibody, and cellular colocalization of CB1 and the microglial marker Griffonia simplicifolia isolectin B4 confirmed the expression of the CB1 receptor in rat microglial cells. Collectively, these results indicate a functional linkage between the CB1 receptor and cannabinoid-mediated inhibition of NO production by rat microglial cells.  (+info)

A theory of drug action is developed on the assumption that excitation by a stimulant drug is proportional to the rate of drug-receptor combination, rather than to the proportion of receptors occupied by the drug. The properties of a drug can then be specified by two rate constants: k$_{1}$, the association rate constant, and k$_{2}$, the dissociation rate constant; the ratio k$_{2}$/k$_{1}$ = k$_{e}$ corresponds to the reciprocal of the affinity. The value of k$_{e}$ then determines potency, and k$_{2}$ determines whether the drug is a powerful stimulant (k$_{2}$ high), a partial agonist with ability both to excite and to antagonize (k$_{2}$ moderate) or an antagonist with vestiges of stimulant action (k$_{2}$ low). Qualitatively such a theory accounts for the persistence of effect of an antagonist on a tissue; for the characteristic sequence of excitation followed by block with drugs such as nicotine; for certain forms of tachyphylaxis; and for the vestiges of stimulant action possessed by ...
Using NMR spectroscopy, the team mapped the arrangement of atoms in a protein called CXCR1, which detects the inflammatory signal interleukin 8 and, through a G protein located inside the cell, triggers a cascade of events that can mobilize immune cells, for example. Because G protein-coupled receptors are critical for many cellular responses to external signals, they have been a major target for drugs. More precise knowledge of the shapes of these receptors will allow drugmakers to tailor small molecules to better fit specific targets, avoiding collateral hits that can cause detrimental side effects. This finding will have a major impact on structure-based drug development since for the first time the principal class of drug receptors can be studied in their biologically active forms where they interact with other proteins and potential drugs, said Stanley Opella, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego who led the work, which Nature published online October

To identify regions that are involved in the formation of the dihydropyridine receptor site of skeletal muscle L-type Ca2+ channels, the alpha 1 subunit of the channel complex was specifically labeled with the 1,4-dihydropyridine-receptor-selective photoaffinity probe [3H]diazipine. Photoaffinity-labeled regions were identified by probing labeled proteolytic fragments with several anti-peptide antibodies recognizing different segments of the alpha 1 sequence. Forty to 50% of the alpha 1-associated [3H]diazipine label was contained in the tryptic fragment between Arg-988 and Ala-1023 derived from the loop between segments S5 and S6 in domain III. This region corresponds to a portion of the channel that is believed to contribute to formation of the transmembrane pore. Twenty to 30% of the labeling occurred in a V8 protease fragment between Glu-1349 and Trp-1391. This fragment contains transmembrane segment S6 of domain IV and has previously been shown to form part of the drug receptor for ...

All (3-Iactarn drugs like penicillins, cephalosporins are selective inhibitors of bacterial cell wall synthesis and therefore active against growing bacteria. Mechanism of action: Initial step is the binding of the drug to specific drug receptor PBPs (Penicillin- binding proteins) on bacteria. There are 3 to 6 PBPs having different effects. At least some of which are enzymes involved in transpeptidation (cross-linking) reactions. After attachment, peptidoglycan synthesis is inhibited as final transpeptidation is blocked. Then there occurs inactivation of an inhibitor of autolytic enzyme in the cell wall. This activates the autolytic enzymes in the cell wall that results in lysis resulting in bacterial death. Organisms with defective autolysin function are inhibited but not killed by l3dactam drugs, and they are said to be tolerant ...
Research in the field of VRs has taken a major step forward with the recent molecular cloning of a capsaicin-sensitive VR, VR1. However, more potent and selective VR antagonists are a prerequisite for obtaining a better understanding of the physiology of these receptors. In the present study, we describe the synthesis and pharmacological characterization of a new potent antagonist that is specific to the VR. This antagonist, I-RTX is at least 40-fold more potent than capsazepine, which was previously known as the most potent VR antagonist. Moreover, I-RTX can readily be radiolabeled to a high specific activity with 125I; this isotope has been shown to be a highly useful probe for labeling VR1. Because of the structural similarity of RTX with activators of protein kinase C (e.g., PdBu) the selectivity of RTX for VRs over protein kinase C has been thoroughly investigated [see Szallasi and Blumberg (1999) for review]. However, RTX showed no appreciable affinity for protein kinase C as measured by ...

Bourne and his colleagues screened 274 drugs approved for human use against 1730 TB proteins with known structures (about 40 percent of the proteome). They reported their results in the November 4 issue of PLoS Computational Biology.. Starting with 274 approved drugs that had been co-crystallized with at least one human or animal protein-a total of 962 drug-receptor complexes-Bourne and his team narrowed the search space further using an algorithm called SOIPPA (Sequence Order Independent Profile-Profile Alignment Algorithm), which was developed by Bourne and Lei Xie, PhD, research scientist at UCSD. For each drug-receptor complex, SOIPPA searched for TB proteins with structurally similar binding sites. Then Bournes team virtually docked the drug into these TB proteins to look for matches.. Theres a computer cost associated with our method, but you can do a whole pathogen proteome on a 100-node cluster in a couple of weeks, Bourne says.. They connected 123 drugs to 447 TB proteins, and ...

Imidazoline receptors are the primary receptors on which clonidine and other imidazolines act. There are three classes of imidazoline receptors: I1 receptor - mediates the sympatho-inhibitory actions of imidazolines to lower blood pressure, (NISCH or IRAS, imidazoline receptor antisera selected), I2 receptor - an allosteric binding site of monoamine oxidase and is involved in pain modulation and neuroprotection, I3 receptor - regulates insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells. Activated I1-imidazoline receptors trigger the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine into DAG. Elevated DAG levels in turn trigger the synthesis of second messengers arachidonic acid and downstreameicosanoids. In addition, the sodium-hydrogen antiporter is inhibited, and enzymes of catecholamine synthesis are induced. The I1-imidazoline receptor may belong to the neurocytokine receptorfamily, since its signaling pathways are similar to those of interleukins.. ...
Sulfonylureas are a class of drugs widely used to promote insulin secretion in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. These drugs interact with the sulfonylurea receptor of pancreatic beta cells and inhibit the conductance of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-dependent potassium (KATP) channels. Cloning of complementary DNAs for the high-affinity sulfonylurea receptor indicates that it is a member of the ATP-binding cassette or traffic ATPase superfamily with multiple membrane-spanning domains and two nucleotide binding folds. The results suggest that the sulfonylurea receptor may sense changes in ATP and ADP concentration, affect KATP channel activity, and thereby modulate insulin release. ...
Imidazoline receptors are the primary receptors on which clonidine and other imidazolines act. There are three main classes of imidazoline receptor: I1 is involved in inhibition of the sympathetic nervous system to lower blood pressure, I2 has as yet uncertain functions but is implicated in several psychiatric conditions, and I3 regulates insulin secretion. As of 2017, there are three known subtypes of imidazoline receptors: I1, I2, and I3. The I1 receptor appears to be a G protein-coupled receptor that is localized on the plasma membrane. It may be coupled to PLA2 signalling and thus prostaglandin synthesis. In addition, activation inhibits the sodium-hydrogen antiporter and enzymes of catecholamine synthesis are induced, suggesting that the I1 receptor may belong to the neurocytokine receptor family, since its signaling pathways are similar to those of interleukins. It is found in the neurons of the reticular formation, the dorsomedial medulla oblongata, adrenal medulla, renal epithelium, ...
Azoles are the main antifungal agents currently used in systemic therapy and local mycoses. The class of azole derivatives has been studied using fingerprint descriptors based on electronegativity of the occupied molecular orbitals (OMO) and unoccupied molecular orbitals (UMO). The Hansch equations that correlates partition coefficient with chemical structure allows us to identify the nature of the atoms involved in ligand (drug) - receptor interactions, as well as the nature of those interactions. The results indicate that in the most reactive molecular states, such as states HOMO and LUMO, the oxygen atoms are actually involved in the interaction of the ligand - receptor by the transfer of electrons from the biological receptor to the oxygen atoms.

Since Bousquet et al. discovered the imidazoline binding sites (IBS) two decades ago, when they realized that the antihypertensive drug clonidine interacts not only with the alpha2-adrenenoceptors (alpha2-AR) but also with a distinct imidazoline preferring binding site, these receptors have been pai …

In this regard, the study of pleiotropic hepatoprotective properties of the agonist of peripheral imidazoline receptors C7070 seems interesting from an applied point of view. Models of a skin flap on a feeding leg, ischemia-reperfusion of the liver and rat heart isolated from Langendorff (ischemia-reperfusion and doxorubicin cardiomyopathy) were used. The I2 agonist C7070 at a dose of 10 mg/kg 4.5-fold prevents the increase in ALT and AST (332.56 ± 22.05/825.49 ± 22.46 ALT/AST 526.90 ± 17.97/1045.16 ± 80.02 units/l in control) and 2.5 times reduces the areas of ischmeic damage and necrosis (0.058 ± 0.029/0.046 ± 0.013 mm2) in the modeling of 15-minute ischemia liver. Moxonidine and metformin had a hepatoprotective effect: 44.99 and 36.88 for moxonidine (ALT and AST) and 34.20 / 21.02 for metformin (ALT / AST). The coefficients of histological hepatoprotective activity: 72.33 and 38.96 (moxonidine and metformin ...

Optimizing the receptor binding kinetics of new drugs can have significant benefits, ranging from improved duration of action to enhanced efficacy through the insurmountable antagonism of dynamic physiological systems. Despite this, the kinetics of new receptor ligands are rarely measured early in the drug discovery process, largely because current assays are technically difficult and relatively low-throughput. This webinar will review the current methods for measuring receptor kinetics and then describe the development of a novel approach using time-resolved FRET in continuous read mode that is capable of simultaneously measuring the kinetics of hundreds of compounds. This offers the potential for placing a kinetics assay at the top of a screening cascade, negating the need to first run IC50 curves to assess affinity at the receptor. It also presents the opportunity to screen fragment libraries at receptors in a kinetic mode.. Presenters. Dr Steven Charlton. Professor of Molecular ...

Familial persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy (PHHI), an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by unregulated insulin secretion, is linked to chromosome 11p14-15.1. The newly cloned high-affinity sulfonylurea receptor (SUR) gene, a regulator of insulin secretion, was mapped to 11p15.1 by means of fluorescence in situ hybridization. Two separate SUR gene splice site mutations, which segregated with disease phenotype, were identified in affected individuals from nine different families. Both mutations resulted in aberrant processing of the RNA sequence and disruption of the putative second nucleotide binding domain of the SUR protein. Abnormal insulin secretion in PHHI appears to be caused by mutations in the SUR gene. ...
Hyperinsulinism can occur throughout childhood but is most common in infancy. Persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy (PHHI) is the most important cause of hypoglycemia in early infancy. The excessive secretion of insulin is responsible for profound hypoglycemia and requires aggressive treatment to prevent severe and irreversible brain damage. Onset can be in the neonatal period or later, with the severity of hypoglycemia decreasing with age. PHHI is a heterogeneous disorder with two histopathological lesions, diffuse (DiPHHI) and focal (FoPHHI), which are clinically indistinguishable. FoPHHI is sporadic and characterized by somatic islet-cell hyperplasia. DiPHHI corresponds to a functional abnormality of insulin secretion in the whole pancreas and is most often recessive although rare dominant forms can occur, usually outside the newborn period. Differentiation between focal and diffuse lesions is important because the therapeutic approach and genetic counselling differ radically. ...
Both α,SUB,1,/SUB,-adrenoceptors and M,SUB,3,/SUB,-cholinoceptors can be divided into two subtypes discriminated by the β-chloroethylamines, chloroethylclonidine and propylbenzilylcholine mustard (PrBCM), only in the presence of GTP. The full agonists interact with both subtypes to induce responses. The partial agonists activate one of them to induce responses but behave as competitive antagonists when they interact with the other. The responses mediated through the receptors that are activated by the partial agonists are resistant to myosin light chain kinase inhibitors, while the response through the activation of the other receptors are suppressed by the inhibitors. The receptor stimulations through α,SUB,1A,/SUB,-adrenoceptor and PrBCM-sensitive M,SUB,3,/SUB,-cholinoceptor subtypes mainly activate the myosin light chain-phosphorylationindependent pathway mediated through protein kinase C and low molecular weight GTP-binding protein, whereas the stimulations through ...
ATP-sensitive K+ (K(ATP)) channels are hetero-octamers of inwardly rectifying K+ channel (Kir6.2) and sulphonylurea receptor subunits (SUR1 in pancreatic beta-cells, SUR2A in heart). Heterozygous gain-of-function mutations in Kir6.2 cause neonatal diabetes, which may be accompanied by epilepsy and developmental delay. However, despite the importance of K(ATP) channels in the heart, patients have no obvious cardiac problems. We examined the effects of adenine nucleotides on K(ATP) channels containing wild-type or mutant (Q52R, R201H) Kir6.2 plus either SUR1 or SUR2A. In the absence of Mg2+, both mutations reduced ATP inhibition of SUR1- and SUR2A-containing channels to similar extents, but when Mg2+ was present ATP blocked mutant channels containing SUR1 much less than SUR2A channels. Mg-nucleotide activation of SUR1, but not SUR2A, channels was markedly increased by the R201H mutation. Both mutations also increased resting whole-cell K(ATP) currents through heterozygous SUR1-containing channels to a
Type 2 diabetes is a polygenic disorder (1). Progress in defining the underlying molecular genetics has been limited. In pancreatic β-cells, ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channels control insulin secretion by coupling metabolism to membrane electrical activity. The KATP channel is a complex of two types of essential subunits, the sulfonylurea receptor (SUR1) and the inwardly rectifying potassium channel (Kir6.2) (2).. Mutations in both genes (SUR1, ABCC8; Kir6.2, KCNJ11) cause familial hyperinsulinemia of infancy (HI) (3). Polymorphisms in the genes (ABCC8, exon 16-3t/c, exon 18 C/T, KCNJ11 E23K) have been reported to be associated with type 2 diabetes in several populations, although the data are inconsistent (4-15). Even though there are no data to support a functional role of either of the two ABCC8 variants, a recent study has provided evidence that E23K alters function by inducing spontaneous over-activity of pancreatic β-cells, thus increasing the threshold ATP concentration for insulin ...
Imidazoline−binding sites are non−adrenergic receptors and classified into I,SUB,1,/SUB,/I,SUB,2,/SUB, subtypes.There is strong evidence that I,SUB,1,/SUB,−binding sites, located in the rostro−ventrolateral medulla, are involved in regulation of blood pressure.However, less is known about the peripheral participation of I,SUB,1,/SUB,−binding sites in cardiovascular reactions.Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate whether specific imidazoline derivatives influence myocardial contractility and whether imidazoline binding sites are expressed in rat heart.Agmatine, clonidine and idazoxan failed to alter inotropy in left atria within the whole concentration range tested(1 nM−100μM), whereas cirazoline(1−100μM)and moxonidine(100μM)increase inotropy by about 20−30%.After pre−incubation with the α,SUB,1,/SUB,−adrenoceptor antagonist prazosin, the cirazoline and moxonidine stimulated inotropy was antagonized, indicating more an α,SUB,1,/SUB,−adrenergic and less an ...
