The RAS/RAF/MEK pathway is activated in more than 30% of human cancers, most commonly via mutation in the K-ras oncogene and also via mutations in BRAF. Several allosteric mitogen-activated protein/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (MEK) inhibitors, aimed at treating tumors with RAS/RAF pathway alterations, are in clinical development. However, acquired resistance to these inhibitors has been documented both in preclinical and clinical samples. To identify strategies to overcome this resistance, we have derived three independent MEK inhibitor-resistant cell lines. Resistance to allosteric MEK inhibitors in these cell lines was consistently linked to acquired mutations in the allosteric binding pocket of MEK. In one cell line, concurrent amplification of mutant K-ras was observed in conjunction with MEK allosteric pocket mutations. Clonal analysis showed that both resistance mechanisms occur in the same cell and contribute to enhanced resistance. Importantly, in all cases the MEK-resistant ...

On the basis of its MEK inhibitory activity, E6201 was shown here to be an ATP-competitive MEK inhibitor that is effective against BRAF-V600E melanoma in a preclinical setting. Furthermore, we showed that E6201 is effective in a preclinical model against BRAF-V600E melanoma harboring the MEK1-C121S mutation. Almost all of the MEK inhibitors previously reported are allosteric inhibitors, not ATP-competitive inhibitors (37). Our docking simulation showed that E6201 and selumetinib bind to different sites when they dock with MEK. These results suggest that the inhibitory mode of action of E6201 is different from that of allosteric MEK inhibitors and that E6201 merits further investigation in a clinical setting against both MEK-WT melanomas and melanomas harboring MEK with mutations at the allosteric site.. The MEK1-C121S mutation, which confers resistance to vemurafenib, increases MEK activity independently from BRAF and also confers resistance to the allosteric MEK inhibitor selumetinib (12). Our ...
Cpd 1 and 2 bind the inhibitor site, where Cpd 3 binds the new allosteric site. Cpds 4 and 5 are proposed analogs of 2, Cpds 6 and 7 are analogs of 3, and Cpds 8 and 9 are "frequent-hitters". NOESY experiments were recorded for the six fragments in the presence of 2 and 3. All compounds exhibited intramolecular NOEs upon binding to the target. Additionally, Cpds 2 and 4/5 showed intermolecular NOEs, as did Cpd 3 with 6, 7, 8, and 9. Cpds 4 and 5 did not shows NOEs with 3, nor did 6, 7, 8, and 9 show NOEs to Cpd 2. For fragments 4-7, competition data support that these are inter-ligand NOEs and that Cpds 8 and 9 are non-specific binders. No intermolecular NOEs were seen to Cpd 1. Cpd 1 has a IC50 of 1 uM, while Cpd 2 is 100uM. This supports theoretical calculations that the two competitive binders must have binding constants no more than 8x different ...
In the wild-type receptor, the sodium ion alternates direct interactions with Ser913.39 and Asn2807.45 in two distinct resonance positions, as predicted in MD simulations [Table 5; Gutiérrez-de-Terán et al. (2013b)], while maintaining contact with Asp522.50. This is in agreement with the observation that sodium ion modulation of agonist binding is not completely abolished in mutant receptors S91A3.39 and N280A7.45 (Fig. 3A) and that the two remaining residues in mutants S91A3.39 and N280A7.45 (Asp522.50, and Asn2807.45, or Ser913.39, respectively) still interact directly with the sodium ion, although less than in the wild-type receptor (Table 5). Jiang et al. (1996) found that the same S91A mutation did not affect orthosteric ligand binding very much, even less so than the slight decrease in affinity in our experiments (Table 1). In the adenosine A1 receptor, however, orthosteric ligand binding could not be detected for this mutation, maybe due to lack of expression (Barbhaiya et al., ...
Compounds are evaluated for their binding to naturally occurring receptors, by employing the natural ligand conjugated to an enzyme donor fragment of β-galactosidase for competing with the sample compound for the natural acceptor binding site or in the absence of competition where the sample compound binds to an allosteric site. By adding the enzyme acceptor fragment of the β-galactosidase and substrate, the binding affinity of the sample compound may be evaluated as a measure of agonist or antagonist capability.

AU - Blanton, M. P.. AU - Soti, F.. AU - Kern, W. R.. PY - 2009/5/1. Y1 - 2009/5/1. N2 - Background and purpose: Benzylidene-anabaseines (BAs) are partial agonists of the α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) but their mechanism(s) of action are unknown. Our study explores several possibilities, including direct interactions of BAs with the nAChR channel. Experimental approach: Functional and radioligand-binding assays were used to examine the interaction of two BA analogues, 3-(2,4-dimethoxybenzylidene)-anabaseine (DMXBA) and Its primary metabolite 3-(4-hydroxy-2-methoxybenzylidene)anabaseine (4OH-DMXBA) with both agonist and non-competitive antagonist (NCA)-bindlng sites on muscle-type nAChRs. Key results: Both BAs non-competitively inhibited ACh activation of human fetal muscle nAChRs and ...
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 serotonin transporter (SERT) controls synaptic serotonin levels and is the primary target for antidepressants, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (e.g. (S)-citalopram) and tricyclic antidepressants (e.g. clomipramine). In addition to a high affinity binding site, SERT possesses a low affinity allosteric site for antidepressants. Binding to the allosteric site impedes dissociation of antidepressants from the high affinity site, which may enhance antidepressant efficacy. Here we employ an induced fit docking/molecular dynamics protocol to identify the residues that may be involved in the allosteric binding in the extracellular vestibule located above the central substrate binding (S1) site. Indeed, mutagenesis of selected residues in the vestibule reduces the allosteric potency of (S)-citalopram and clomipramine. The identified site is further supported by the inhibitory effects of Zn(2+) binding in an engineered site and the covalent attachment of ...

BioAssay record AID 390611 submitted by ChEMBL: Modulation of human adenosine A1 receptor expressed in CHO-K1 cells assessed as allosteric effect on [125I]ABA dissociation.
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 ...
VCP171 is an AR positive allosteric modulator. VCP171 elicited positive allosteric effects on the binding affinity of orthosteric agonists at both the rat and human A1 -receptors that showed clear probe dependence.
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 ...

A receptor antagonist is a type of receptor ligand or drug that blocks or dampens a biological response by binding to and blocking a receptor rather than activating it like an agonist. They are sometimes called blockers; examples include alpha blockers, beta blockers, and calcium channel blockers. In pharmacology, antagonists have affinity but no efficacy for their cognate receptors, and binding will disrupt the interaction and inhibit the function of an agonist or inverse agonist at receptors. Antagonists mediate their effects by binding to the active site or to the allosteric site on a receptor, or they may interact at unique binding sites not normally involved in the biological regulation of the receptors activity. Antagonist activity may be reversible or irreversible depending on the longevity of the antagonist-receptor complex, which, in turn, depends on the nature of antagonist-receptor binding. The majority of drug antagonists achieve their potency by competing with endogenous ligands or ...
I found out that glyphosate is an aminophosphonic analogue of glycine. First question: How is it different? Is there a phosphate group added onto it? What does being an aminophosphonic analogue entail?Now, the analogues act as antimetabolites, which interefere, at least in this case, with the production of the plants amino acids. They compete with normal substrates at the active site, denaturing the enzyme, and making it useless for its original purpose. So here lies my second question: Is there a substrate that is non-competitive to do this same thing OR are there even allosteric sites on such enzymes?Many thanks ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Expression, purification and characterization of human glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) allosteric regulatory mutations. AU - Fang, Jie. AU - Hsu, Betty Y L. AU - MacMullen, Courtney M.. AU - Poncz, Mortimer. AU - Smith, Thomas. AU - Stanley, Charles A.. PY - 2002/4/1. Y1 - 2002/4/1. N2 - Glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) catalyses the reversible oxidative deamination of L-glutamate to 2-oxoglutarate in the mitochondrial matrix. In mammals, this enzyme is highly regulated by allosteric effectors. The major allosteric activator and inhibitor are ADP and GTP, respectively; allosteric activation by leucine may play an important role in amino acid-stimulated insulin secretion. The physiological significance of this regulation has been highlighted by the identification of children with an unusual hyperinsulinism/hyperammonaemia syndrome associated with dominant mutations in GDH that cause a loss in GTP inhibition. In order to determine the effects of these mutations on the function of the ...
In bacteria, the level of cAMP varies depending on the medium used for growth. In particular, cAMP is low when glucose is the carbon source. This occurs through inhibition of the cAMP-producing enzyme, adenylate cyclase, as a side effect of glucose transport into the cell. The transcription factor cAMP receptor protein (CRP) also called: CAP (Catabolite gene Activator Protein) forms a complex with cAMP and thereby is activated to bind to DNA. CRP-cAMP increases expression of a large number of genes, including some encoding enzymes that can supply energy independent of glucose. An example of cAMPs function is the positive regulation of the lac operon. In an environment of a low glucose concentration, cAMP accumulates and binds to the allosteric site on CRP (cAMP receptor protein), a transcription activator protein. The protein assumes its active shape and binds to a specific site beside the lac promoter, making it easier for RNA polymerase to bind to the adjacent promoter to start transcription ...

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 ...

N2 - C-terminal Src kinase (CSK) and CSK-homologous kinase (CHK) are endogenous inhibitors constraining the activity of the oncogenic Src-family kinases (SFKs) in cells. Both kinases suppress SFKs by selectively phosphorylating their consensus C-terminal regulatory tyrosine. In addition to phosphorylation, CHK can suppress SFKs by a unique non-catalytic inhibitory mechanism that involves tight binding of CHK to SFKs to form stable complexes. In this review, we discuss how allosteric regulators, phosphorylation, and inter-domain interactions interplay to govern the activity of CSK and CHK and their ability to inhibit SFKs. In particular, based ...
