Previously we used mass spectrometry to show that the yeast G protein alpha subunit Gpa1 is ubiquitinated at Lys-165, located within a subdomain not present in other G alpha proteins (Marotti, L. A., Jr., Newitt, R., Wang, Y., Aebersold, R., and Dohlman, H. G. (2002) Biochemistry 41, 5067-5074). Here we describe the functional role of Gpa1 ubiquitination. We find that Gpa1 expression is elevated in mutants deficient in either proteasomal or vacuolar protease function. Vacuolar protease pep4 mutants accumulate monoubiquitinated Gpa1, and much of the protein is localized within the vacuolar compartment. In contrast, proteasome-defective rpt6/cim3 mutants accumulate polyubiquitinated Gpa1, and in this case the protein exhibits cytoplasmic localization. Cells that lack Ubp12 ubiquitin-processing protease activity accumulate both mono- and polyubiquitinated forms of Gpa1. In this case, Gpa1 accumulates in both the cytoplasm and vacuole. Finally, a Gpa1 mutant that lacks the ubiquitinated subdomain remains
The carboxyl terminal of heterotrimeric G protein alpha subunits binds both G protein-coupled receptors and mastoparan (MP), a tetradecapeptide allostere. Moreover, peptides corresponding to the carboxyl domains of G(i)3 alpha and G(t) display intrinsic biological activities in cell-free systems. Thus, the purpose of this study was to develop a cell penetrant delivery system to further investigate the biological properties of a peptide mimetic of the G(i)3 alpha carboxyl terminal (G(i)3 alpha(346-355); H-KNNLKECGLY-NH2). Kinetic studies, using a CFDA-conjugated analogue of G(i)3 alpha(346-355), confirmed the rapid and efficient intracellular translocation of TP10-G(i)3 alpha(346-355) (t(0.5) = 3 min). Translocated G(i)3 alpha(346-355), but not other bioactive cargoes derived from PKC and the CB1 cannabinoid receptor, promoted the dual phosphorylation of p42/p44 MAPK without adverse changes in cellular viability. The relative specificity of this novel biological activity was further confirmed by ...

Cells usually activate the cyclic AMP (cAMP, or adenosine 3′,5′-monophosphate)-dependent protein kinase through G protein (heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding protein)-coupled receptors, which activate G proteins, which in turn control the activity of adenylyl cyclase, the enzyme that makes cAMP. Peeters et al., however, report that in yeast, and just maybe in mammalian cells as well, there appears to be a more direct route to activation of the cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA). Peeters et al. studied the roles of Krh1 (kelch-repeat homologue 1, also called Gpb2) and Krh2 (also called Gpb1). Krh1 and Krh2 associate with the yeast G protein α subunit Gpa2, which appears not to interact with canonical G protein β-γ subunits. Interestingly, the Krh1 and Krh2 proteins have the seven-bladed β-propeller structure characteristic of Gβ proteins. Deletion of Krh1 and Krh2 resulted in a phenotype indicative of high PKA activity, but there was no associated increase in the abundance of ...

In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the G protein beta gamma subunits are essential for pheromone signaling. The Galpha subunit Gpa1 can also promote signaling, but the effectors in this pathway are not well characterized. To identify candidate Gpa1 effectors, we expressed the constitutively active Gpa1(Q323L) mutant in each of nearly 5000 gene-deletion strains and measured mating-specific responses. Our analysis reveals a requirement for both the catalytic (Vps34) and regulatory (Vps15) subunits of the sole phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase in yeast. We demonstrate that Gpa1 is present at endosomes, where it interacts directly with both Vps34 and Vps15 and stimulates increased production of phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate. Notably, Vps15 binds to GDP-bound Gpa1 and is predicted to have a seven-WD repeat structure similar to that of known G protein beta subunits. These findings reveal two new components of the pheromone signaling pathway. More remarkably, these proteins appear to comprise a ...

Heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide binding proteins (G proteins) transmit a variety of extracellular signals from cell surface G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) to intracellular effector molecules. Heterotrimeric G proteins are classified according to the α subunit into four subfamilies: Gs, Gi, Gq, and G12. The G12 subfamily, which is comprised of two members, Gα12 (GNA12) and Gα13 (GNA13), has been implicated in cancer cell invasion and metastasis. G12 signaling promotes prostate, breast and ovarian cancer cell invasion in vitro, and these proteins are highly expressed in metastatic cancer tissues. As part of a program to elucidate the mechanisms by which GNA12 and GNA13 expression is upregulated in cancer cells, we assessed the potential involvement of micro-RNAs (miRNAs) in post-transcriptional control of GNA13 expression. The initial focus was on prostate cancer; LnCAP (with the lowest GNA13 protein level) and PC3 (with the highest GNA13 level) were employed as the model system. ...
Heterotrimeric G proteins are quintessential signalling switches activated by nucleotide exchange on Galpha. Although activation is predominantly carried out by G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), non-receptor guanine-nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) have emerged as critical signalling molecules and therapeutic targets. Here we characterize the molecular mechanism of G-protein activation by a family of non-receptor GEFs containing a Galpha-binding and -activating (GBA) motif. We combine NMR spectroscopy, computational modelling and biochemistry to map changes in Galpha caused by binding of GBA proteins with residue-level resolution. We find that the GBA motif binds to the SwitchII/alpha3 cleft of Galpha and induces changes in the G-1/P-loop and G-2 boxes (involved in phosphate binding), but not in the G-4/G-5 boxes (guanine binding). Our findings reveal that G-protein-binding and activation mechanisms are fundamentally different between GBA proteins and GPCRs, and that GEF-mediated ...

The Gas Producers Association, now known as the GPA Midstream Association (www.gpaglobal.org ), has a issued a revised standard GPA-2145-16 - Table of Physical Properties of Hydrocarbons and Other Compounds effective 1 January 2017. This latest standard now becomes GPA Midstream 2145-16, which replaces GPA 2145-09.. The update is based on revised test methods and a merger with the physical property data within the GPA Engineering Data Book. The update can be found here: GPA 2145 16 Publication.. A summary of the [few] changes can be found in the attached excel sheet (courtesy Al McCue). The only changes to either the G.Equiv or GHV factors is that G.Equiv factors for both hydrogen (H2) and helium (HE) changed slightly. As these components are only present in trace quantities in most gas mixtures and are not listed on liquid analyses - these new factors should only affect gas allocations and cascade allocations very minutely, if at all.

We identified the transcription factor E2F8 in the course of a screen for novel activators of heterotrimeric G proteins. In S. cerevisiae, E2F8 was able to activate a G protein/MAP kinase reporter pathway; this activity was specific for particular G protein isoforms, mapped epistatically to the level of heterotrimers, and was antagonized by a GTPase-accelerating protein. The amino-terminus of the protein appeared to be most important for G protein activation. The most parsimonious interpretation of these results is that E2F8 stimulates nucleotide exchange on the α subunit of heterotrimeric G proteins. Since E2F8 did not reduce the maximal receptor-mediated signal (Figure 2), but rather caused a left-shift in the receptors dose-response curve, E2F8 does not compete with receptors for G proteins. Instead, E2F8 and receptors may be complementary to one another in their mode of action, using different molecular mechanisms to activate Gα.. G protein activation would be a novel function for an E2F ...
Methods and results Two patients were identified with melanocytoma, one of which had transformed to melanoma. In the latter case, the melanocytoma exhibited an immunophenotype that featured nuclear p27 and no HMB45 staining, with very low Cyclin D1 expression compared with the melanoma that featured little nuclear but more cytoplasmic p27 positivity, much higher Cyclin D1 expression and HMB45 positivity. The melanocytomas were negative for CD68 allowing distinction from melanophages. Both melanocytomas and the melanoma harboured mutations in GNAQ, with no mutations of GNA11 or BRAF V600E.. ...
S. cerevisiae has membrane proteins that act as glucose receptors. Glucose binds to these receptors and generates an intracellular signal. In the Rgt2/Snf3 pathway, these two proteins act as glucose receptors. The Rgt2 and Snf3 proteins resemble hexose transporters in structure but have long cytoplasmic tails that are required for signal transduction [7]. Glucose binding to these transmembrane proteins initiates signals that activate a pathway that allows hexose transporter gene expression by repressing Rgt1 function [8].. An additional pathway that involves transcriptional changes in response to glucose is the stimulation of adenylyl cyclase and the increase in intracellular cyclic AMP. This pathway includes a G-protein coupled receptor (Gpr1) and two G proteins Gpa1 and 2, necessary for the glucose-specific increase in cAMP [9,10]. Finally, glucose activation of adenylyl cyclase leads to activation of the cAMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA). Upon activation of PKA by cAMP the Rap1 ...
The effect of endogenous RGS proteins on receptor-mediated signaling has been studied in various systems by expressing RGS-insensitive or -sensitive Gαo (Jeong and Ikeda, 2000; Boutet-Robinet et al., 2003; Clark et al., 2003). Insensitivity of Gαo to endogenous RGS proteins increases receptor signaling to some, but not all, pathways that have been studied. In this work we have expressed RGS-insensitive and -sensitive Gαo in C6 glioma cells expressing the rat μ-opioid receptor. This allowed us to test two hypotheses, namely, that coupling of the μ-opioid receptor to Gαo can provide for adenylyl supersensitization and that RGS proteins decrease the degree of supersensitization because of their effect in shortening the lifetime of the active signaling molecule Gαo-GTP and its Gβγ counterpart. The results show the presence of active Gαo alone allows for the development of μ-opioid agonist-mediated adenylyl cyclase supersensitization and that this effect is greatly enhanced when Gαo is ...
Regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) family members are regulatory molecules that act as GTPase activating proteins (GAPs) for G alpha subunits of heterotrimeric G proteins. RGS proteins are able to deactivate G protein subunits of the Gi alpha, Go alpha and Gq alpha subtypes. They drive G proteins into their inactive GDP-bound forms. Regulator of G protein signaling 4 belongs to this family. All RGS proteins share a conserved 120-amino acid sequence termed the RGS domain. Regulator of G protein signaling 4 protein is 37% identical to RGS1 and 97% identical to rat Rgs4. This protein negatively regulate signaling upstream or at the level of the heterotrimeric G protein and is localized in the cytoplasm. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene ...

The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the formation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate and diacylglycerol from phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate. This reaction uses calcium as a cofactor and plays an important role in the intracellular transduction of many extracellular signals.

The Ran GTPase Activating Protein 2 (RanGAP2) was first described as a regulator of mitosis and nucleocytoplasmic trafficking. It was then found to interact with the Coiled-Coil domain of the Rx and GPA2 resistance proteins, which confer resistance to Potato Virus X (PVX) and potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida, respectively. RanGAP2 is thought to mediate recognition of the avirulence protein GP-RBP-1 by GPA2. However, the Gpa2-induced hypersensitive response appears to be relatively weak and Gpa2 is limited in terms of spectrum of efficiency as it is effective against only two nematode populations. While functional and evolutionary analyses of Gp-Rbp-1 and Gpa2 identified key residues in both the resistance and avirulence proteins that are involved in recognition determination, whether variation in RanGAP2 also plays a role in pathogen recognition has not been investigated. We amplified a total of 147 RanGAP2 sequences from 55 accessions belonging to 18 different di-and tetraploid Solanum species
GNAQ mutations at codon 209 have been recently identified in approximately 50% of uveal melanomas (UM) and are reported to be oncogenic through activating the MAPK/Erk1/2 pathway. Protein kinase C (PKC) is a component of signaling from GNAQ to Erk1/2. Inhibition of PKC might regulate GNAQ mutation-induced Erk1/2 activation, resulting in growth inhibition of UM cells carrying GNAQ mutations. UM cells carrying wild type or mutant GNAQ were treated with the PKC inhibitor enzastaurin. Effects on proliferation, apoptosis, and signaling events were evaluated. Enzastaurin downregulated the expression of several PKC isoforms including PKCβII PKCθ, PKCε and/or their phosphorylation in GNAQ mutated cells. Downregulation of these PKC isoforms in GNAQ mutated cells by shRNA resulted in reduced viability. Enzastaurin exhibited greater antiproliferative effect on GNAQ mutant cells than wild type cells through induction of G1 arrest and apoptosis. Enzastaurin-induced G1 arrest was associated with inhibition ...
Regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins accelerate GTP hydrolysis by Gα subunits and thus facilitate termination of signaling initiated by G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). RGS proteins hold great promise as disease intervention points, given their signature role as negative regulators of GPCRs-receptors to which the largest fraction of approved medications are currently directed. RGS proteins share a hallmark RGS domain that interacts most avidly with Gα when in its transition state for GTP hydrolysis; by binding and stabilizing switch regions I and II of Gα, RGS domain binding consequently accelerates Gα-mediated GTP hydrolysis. The human genome encodes more than three dozen RGS domain-containing proteins with varied Gα substrate specificities. To facilitate their exploitation as drug-discovery targets, we have taken a systematic structural biology approach toward cataloging the structural diversity present among RGS domains and identifying molecular determinants of their ...
Recently Peeters and colleagues (2006) discovered a mechanism in yeast by which the G alfa protein Gpa2 activates PKA through two kelch-repeat proteins, Krh1 and Krh2, bypassing adenylate cyclase stimulation. Hence, Gpa2 regulates PKA activity via two distinct pathways: through stimulation of adenylate cyclase and through inhibition of the Krh proteins. We investigated if the C. glabrata homologues of ScKrh1 and ScKrh2 can complement the respective deletion mutants of S. cerevisiae. By measuring the trehalose content of the respective deletions mutants, transformed with CgKrh1 and CgKrh2 cloned into pBEVY-vectors, after 12, 24 and 48 hours, we showed that ChKrh1 and ChKrh2 can complement the function of ScKrh1 and ScKrh2. We will also investigate the expression of STRE-controlled genes and the formation of pseudohyphae in these transformed deletion mutants ...
Heterotrimeric GTP-binding proteins, which consist of G, Gβ, and G subunits, play important roles in transducing extracellular signals perceived by cell surface receptors into intracellular physiological responses. In addition to a single prototypical G protein (GPA1), Arabidopsis has three unique G-like proteins, known as XLG1, XLG2, and XLG3, that have been found to be localized in nuclei, although their functions and mode of action remain largely unknown. Through a transcriptomic analysis, we found that XLG2 and XLG3 were rapidly induced by infection with the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae, whereas the XLG1 transcript level was not affected by pathogen infection. A reverse genetic screen revealed that the xlg2 loss-of-function mutation causes enhanced susceptibility to P. syringae. Transcriptome profiling revealed that the xlg2 mutation affects pathogen-triggered induction of a small set of defense-related genes. However, xlg1 and xlg3 mutants showed no difference from wild-type ...

Of particular interest is why theses mechanisms fail, causing cardiomyocytes to die and making the heart unable to contract effectively and heart failure to develop. Is it loss of survival pathways, development of apoptotic/necrotic mediators, or a shift in the balance between these pathways? Candidate signaling molecules of particular interest to us are ligands for G-protein coupled receptors such as S1P, the heterotrimeric G-protein Gq and small G-protein RhoA, both of which turn on protective pathways that ultimately decompensate to pathways that induce apoptosis, the Ca regulated protein kinase CaMKII which regulates nuclear gene expression and Ca handling, and the protective molecule Akt, with targets at the mitochondria that control cell survival ...
Increasing evidence suggests that RGS proteins play an integral role in G-protein signaling. To date, however, information regarding the functional roles of RGS proteins is limited primarily to in vitro biochemical assays and heterologous overexpression experiments. Thus, the role played by natively expressed RGS proteins in G-protein signaling remains unclear. A reason for this void in our knowledge is the lack of experimental tools for uncoupling endogenous RGS proteins from G-protein signaling pathways. Thus, the development of the better tools represents a major challenge for understanding the physiological roles subserved by RGS proteins. In this regard, several potential strategies are apparent. First, genetically ablating specific RGS proteins, either acutely (e.g., antisense techniques) or stably (e.g., knock-out mice), might lend insight into endogenous RGS protein functions. However, ,20 mammalian RGS proteins have been identified so far, and it is likely that even single cells contain ...

The lipoglycoproteins of the WNT family act on seven transmembrane-spanning Class Frizzled receptors. Here, we show that WNT-5A evokes a proliferative response in a mouse microglia-like cell line (N13), which is sensitive to pertussis toxin, thus implicating the involvement of heterotrimeric G proteins of the G(i/o) family. We continue to show that WNT-5A stimulation of N13 membranes and permeabilized cells evokes the exchange of GDP for GTP of pertussis toxin-sensitive G proteins employing [gamma-(35)S]GTP assay and activity state-specific antibodies to GTP-bound G(i) proteins. Our functional analysis of the PTX-sensitivity of WNT-induced G protein activation and PCR analysis of G protein and FZD expression patterns suggest that WNT-5A stimulation leads to the activation of G(i2/3) proteins in N13 cells possibly mediated by FZD(5), the predominant FZD expressed ...
