Positive allosteric modulators (PAMs), also known as allosteric enhancers or potentiators, induce an amplification of the effect of receptors response to the primary ligand without directly activating the receptor.[2][3] Benzodiazepines principally act as PAMs at the GABAA receptor.[4]. Negative allosteric modulators (NAMs) act at an allosteric site to reduce the responsiveness of the receptor to the endogenous ligand.[3] Ro15-4513 is a NAM at the α1β2γ2 GABAA receptor[citation needed].[nb 1]. Silent allosteric modulators (SAMs), also called neutral or null modulators, occupy the allosteric binding site and behave functionally neutral. Flumazenil can be regarded as such an example. The modulatory activity can be first-order, second-order, or both. Second-order modulators alter the modulatory activity of first-order modulators, whereas first-order modulators do not alter the activity of other allosteric modulators.[citation needed] (−)‐Epigallocatechin‐3‐gallate is one such example of ...
Negative allosteric modulation (also known as allosteric inhibition) occurs when the binding of one ligand decreases the affinity for substrate at other active sites. For example, when 2,3-BPG binds to an allosteric site on hemoglobin, the affinity for oxygen of all subunits decreases. This is when a regulator is absent from the binding site. Direct thrombin inhibitors provides an excellent example of negative allosteric modulation. Allosteric inhibitors of thrombin have been discovered which could potentially be used as anticoagulants. Another example is strychnine, a convulsant poison, which acts as an allosteric inhibitor of the glycine receptor. Glycine is a major post-synaptic inhibitory neurotransmitter in mammalian spinal cord and brain stem. Strychnine acts at a separate binding site on the glycine receptor in an allosteric manner; i.e., its binding lowers the affinity of the glycine receptor for glycine. Thus, strychnine inhibits the action of an inhibitory transmitter, leading to ...

The main objective when analyzing equilibrium data are to identify elements that respond to external forces, and to quantify their interactions with the catalytic unit, which in ion channels is the conducting pore. Quaternary descriptions of enzyme function have been useful in studying regulatory proteins-most notably hemoglobin, widely considered the poster child of protein allosteric theory. Modeling hemoglobin using sophisticated variants of the classical Monod-Wyman-Changeux (MWC) equation (Monod et al., 1965) has achieved impressive insight into its allosteric machinery (Eaton et al., 2007). A K+ channel whose regulation, at a basic level, is formulaically similar to that of hemoglobin (though mechanistically distinct), is the large-conductance voltage- and Ca2+-dependent (BK) channel. The BK channel derives its voltage dependence from four voltage-sensing (J) domains located within the membrane electric field, and also to a small degree from the pore (L) itself. Calcium sensors (K) are ...
Positive allosteric modulators of the ionotropic glutamate receptor-2 (GluA2) are promising compounds for the treatment of cognitive disorders, e.g. Alzheimers disease. These modulators bind within the dimer interface of the LBD (ligand-binding domain) and stabilize the agonist-bound conformation slowing receptor desensitization and/or deactivation. In the present study, we employ isothermal titration calorimetry to determine binding affinities and thermodynamic details of binding of modulators of GluA2. A mutant of the LBD of GluA2 (LBD-L483Y-N754S) that forms a stable dimer in solution was used. The potent GluA2 modulator BPAM-97 was used as a reference compound. Evidence that BPAM-97 binds in the same pocket as the well-known GluA2 modulator cyclothiazide was obtained from X-ray structures. The LBD-L483Y-N754S:BPAM-97 complex has a Kd of 5.6 μM (ΔH=−4.9 kcal/mol, −TΔS=−2.3 kcal/mol; where 1 kcal≈4.187 kJ). BPAM-97 was used in a displacement assay to determine a Kd of 0.46 mM ...

A molecule that treats multiple age-related diseases would have a major impact on global health and economics. The SIRT1 deacetylase has drawn attention in this regard as a target for drug design. Yet controversy exists around the mechanism of sirtuin-activating compounds (STACs). We found that specific hydrophobic motifs found in SIRT1 substrates such as PGC-1α and FOXO3a facilitate SIRT1 activation by STACs. A single amino acid in SIRT1, Glu230, located in a structured N-terminal domain, was critical for activation by all previously reported STAC scaffolds and a new class of chemically distinct activators. In primary cells reconstituted with activation-defective SIRT1, the metabolic effects of STACs were blocked. Thus, SIRT1 can be directly activated through an allosteric mechanism common to chemically diverse STACs. ...
Allosteric modulation of adenosine A1 receptors (A1ARs) offers a novel therapeutic approach for the treatment of numerous central and peripheral disorders. However, despite decades of research, there is a relative paucity of structural information regarding the A1AR allosteric site and mechanisms governing cooperativity with orthosteric ligands. We combined alanine-scanning mutagenesis of the A1AR second extracellular loop (ECL2) with radioligand binding and functional interaction assays to quantify effects on allosteric ligand affinity, cooperativity and efficacy. Docking and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were performed using an A1AR homology model based on an agonist-bound A2AAR structure. Substitution of E172ECL2 for alanine reduced the affinity of the allosteric modulators, PD81723 and VCP171, for the unoccupied A1AR. Residues involved in cooperativity with the orthosteric agonist, NECA, were different between PD81723 and VCP171; positive cooperativity between PD81723 and NECA was ...
ITK (interleukin-2-inducible T-cell kinase) is a critical component of signal transduction in T-cells and has a well-validated role in their proliferation, cytokine release and chemotaxis. ITK is an attractive target for the treatment of T-cell-mediated inflammatory diseases. In the present study we describe the discovery of kinase inhibitors that preferentially bind to an allosteric pocket of ITK. The novel ITK allosteric site was characterized by NMR, surface plasmon resonance, isothermal titration calorimetry, enzymology and X-ray crystallography. Initial screening hits bound to both the allosteric pocket and the ATP site. Successful lead optimization was achieved by improving the contribution of the allosteric component to the overall inhibition. NMR competition experiments demonstrated that the dual-site binders showed higher affinity for the allosteric site compared with the ATP site. Moreover, an optimized inhibitor displayed non-competitive inhibition with respect to ATP as shown by ...

Positive allosteric modulation of the ionotropic glutamate receptor GluA2 presents a potential treatment of cognitive disorders, for example, Alzheimers disease.

cAMP (adenosine 3,5-cyclic monophosphate) is a ubiquitous second messenger that activates a multitude of essential cellular responses. Two key receptors for cAMP in eukaryotes are protein kinase A (PKA) and the exchange protein directly activated by cAMP (EPAC), which is a recently discovered guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for the small GTPases Rap1 and Rap2. Previous attempts to investigate the mechanism of allosteric activation of eukaryotic cAMP-binding domains (CBDs) at atomic or residue resolution have been hampered by the instability of the apo form, which requires the use of mixed apo/holo systems, that have provided only a partial picture of the CBD apo state and of the allosteric networks controlled by cAMP. Here, we show that, unlike other eukaryotic CBDs, both apo and cAMP-bound states of the EPAC1 CBD are stable under our experimental conditions, providing a unique opportunity to define at an unprecedented level of detail the allosteric interactions linking two critical ...

The GLP-1R is a major target for the treatment and management of type II diabetes but peptides, despite the approval of several drugs (exenatide and liraglutide), do not provide ideal therapeutics because their use is complicated by the route of administration. This has driven the search for low molecular weight, orally active compounds that activate or augment GLP-1R signaling as the idealized therapeutic drug. Recent drug discovery efforts for the GLP-1R have focused on targeting sites for allosteric modulation. Allosteric interactions are often complex because ligands can alter the biological properties of the endogenous ligand by modulating the affinity and/or efficacy as well as having the potential to exhibit their own agonism. This can be complicated if there are multiple endogenous ligands (as is the case for the GLP-1R), because the allosteric interaction can vary with the nature of the orthosteric ligand, a property termed "probe dependence" (May et al., 2007b). These allosteric ...

Allosteric regulation provides highly specific ligand recognition and signaling by transmembrane protein receptors. Unlike functions of protein molecular machines that rely on large-scale conformational transitions, signal transduction in receptors appears to be mediated by more subtle structural motions that are difficult to identify. We describe a theoretical model for allosteric regulation in receptors that addresses a fundamental riddle of signaling: What are the structural origins of the receptor agonism (specific signaling response to ligand binding)? The model suggests that different signaling pathways in bovine rhodopsin or human beta(2)-adrenergic receptor can be mediated by specific structural motions in the receptors. We discuss implications for understanding the receptor agonism, particularly the recently observed "biased agonism" (selected activation of specific signaling pathways), and for developing rational structure-based drug-design strategies. ...

Enzymes are extremely useful and effective in many biochemical reactions but only at the right time and place. Enzyme activity is regulated in five different ways:. Allosteric control:Allosteric enzymes contain distinct regulatory sites and multiple functional sites. The protein is significantly controlled when small signal molecules bind to these regulatory sites. Also allosteric enzymes show cooperativity, which means that activity at one functional site will affect the other functional site as well.. Multiple Forms of Enzymes: Isoenzymes or Isozymes are homologous enzymes in an organism that catalyze the same reaction but are a little bit different in their structure, Km and Vmax values, and regulatory properties. Isozymes allow a reaction to be regulated at distinct locations or times.. Reversible Covalent Modification: The catalytic properties of enzymes can be altered by a covalent binding of a modifying group, most commonly to a phosphoryl group. Usually ATP will serve as a donor for ...

5) Cytochrome P450s represent an important class of monooxygenases, which play important roles in the hydroxylation of endogenous physiological substrates as well as a vast range of drugs and other compounds foreign to the organism (xenobiotics2 ). Exposure to such xenobiotics results in the induction of particular families of P450 proteint. , 1996). With the exception of microbial P450s, the majority of P450s are membrane bound, associated either with the inner membrane of the mitochondria or the endoplasmic reticulum (microsomal) membrane. This reflects the cooperativity of oxygen binding - the fourth oxygen molecule binds with 100-fold greater affinity than the first. It is known that, like other allosteric proteins, haemoglobin exists in two distinct and different conformations, corresponding to the T (deoxy) and R (oxy) states. Indeed, the conformations of oxy and deoxyhaemoglobins are so different, that crystals of deoxyhaemoglobin shatter when oxygen is introduced. But since the haem ...

General anesthetics bind reversibly to ion channels, modifying their global conformational distributions, but the underlying atomic mechanisms are not completely known. We examine this issue by way of the model protein Gloeobacter violaceous ligand-gated ion channel (GLIC) using computational molecular dynamics, with a coarse-grained model to enhance sampling. We find that in flooding simulations, both propofol and a generic particle localize to the crystallographic transmembrane anesthetic binding region, and that propofol also localizes to an extracellular region shared with the crystallographic ketamine binding site. Subsequent simulations to probe these binding modes in greater detail demonstrate that ligand binding induces structural asymmetry in GLIC. Consequently, we employ residue interaction correlation analysis to describe the internal allosteric network underlying the coupling of ligand and distant effector sites necessary for conformational change. Overall, the results suggest that the same
Barbiturates have special uses and are organized into 4 classes: ultrashort-, short-, intermediate- and long-acting. Empirically SARs of barbiturants are based on thousands of (animal) tested compounds.They have shown that R and R´ may not be H in position 5 (see figure 8). Also, position 5 confer sedative-hypnotic properties.[10] Generally alkyl branching in position 5 means less lipid solubility and less activity. Unsaturation show less activity in position 5 and alicyclic and aromatic rings show less potency. Polar substiuents (-NH2, -OH, -COOH) will decrease lipid solubility but it will also eliminate activity. R´´ in position 1 is usually, H but CH3 in that position yields less lipid solubility and duration. Exchanging S for O atom in position 2 produces thiobarbiturates, which are more lipid-soluble than the oxybarbiturates. In general, the more lipid-soluble the barbiturate, the more rapid its onset, the shorter its duration and the greater the degree of hypnotic activity. Barbiturates ...

N2 - Background: Ribozymes can function as allosteric enzymes that undergo a conformational change upon ligand binding to a site other than the active site. Although allosteric ribozymes are not known to exist in nature, nucleic acids appear to be well suited to display such advanced forms of kinetic control. Current research explores the mechanisms of allosteric ribozymes as well as the strategies and methods that can be used to create new controllable enzymes. Results: In this study, we exploit the modular nature of certain functional RNAs to engineer allosteric ribozymes that are activated by flavin mononucleotide (FMN) or theophylline. By joining an FMN- or theophylline-binding domain to a hammerhead ribozyme by different stem II elements, we have identified a minimal connective bridge comprised of a G·U ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Structures of bovine glutamate dehydrogenase complexes elucidate the mechanism of purine regulation. AU - Smith, Thomas. AU - Peterson, Peter E.. AU - Schmidt, Timothy. AU - Fang, Jie. AU - Stanley, Charles A.. PY - 2001/3/23. Y1 - 2001/3/23. N2 - Glutamate dehydrogenase is found in all organisms and catalyses the oxidative deamination of L-glutamate to 2-oxoglutarate. However, only animal GDH utilizes both NAD(H) or NADP(H) with comparable efficacy and exhibits a complex pattern of allosteric inhibition by a wide variety of small molecules. The major allosteric inhibitors are GTP and NADH and the two main allosteric activators are ADP and NAD+. The structures presented here have refined and modified the previous structural model of allosteric regulation inferred from the original boGDH·NADH·GLU·GTP complex. The boGDH·NAD+·α-KG complex structure clearly demonstrates that the second coenzyme-binding site lies directly under the "pivot helix" of the NAD+ binding domain. In ...
Our lab is interested in the biology and therapeutic potential of targeting Class C G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). We are predominantly focussed on two class members: metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGlu5) and the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR). mGlu5 is an exciting new target for schizophrenia, Alzheimers disease, autism spectrum disorders and depression, whereas modulators of the CaSR are already in the clinic for hyperparathyroidism and are putative therapeutics for osteoporosis, calcium handling disorders, asthma and idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. We are pursuing a novel class of therapeutics, called allosteric modulators, to selectively target these receptors. To facilitate rational drug design and discovery efforts, a better understanding of the functional consequences and structural basis of allosteric modulation is needed.. Available projects examine ...
