N2 - The human homolog of Drosophila ecdysoneless protein (ECD) is a p53 binding protein that stabilizes and enhances p53 functions. Homozygous deletion of mouse Ecd is early embryonic lethal and Ecd deletion delays G1-S cell cycle progression. Importantly, ECD directly interacts with the Rb tumor suppressor and competes with the E2F transcription factor for binding to Rb. Further studies demonstrated ECD is overexpressed in breast and pancreatic cancers and its overexpression correlates with poor patient survival. ECD overexpression together with Ras induces cellular transformation through upregulation of ...
The invention provides reagents and methods for multivalent binding and quantitative capture of components in a sample. In one aspect, reagents and methods for diagnostic assay for antigen, ligand, binding agent, or antibody are provided. Compositions of a non-natural or deliberately constructed nucleic acid-like polymeric scaffold are provided, to which multiple antibodies, peptides or other binding agents can be affixed by hybridization of a oligonucleotide: binding agent complex such that the nucleic acid: binding agent construction displays multivalent behavior when interacting with a multivalent analyte. Methods for constructing and using the scaffolds are described.

Kinases transfer the γ-phosphate of ATP to other biological molecules, serving as chemical messengers that make the tight regulation of cell-signaling pathways possible. For example, non-receptor tyrosine kinases are found in the cytoplasm (not membrane-bound) and transfer the γ-phosphate of ATP to tyrosine residues of other proteins, often turning these proteins "on" or "off" in the context of their respective signaling pathway. This notion of "on" or "off" can be useful to holistically conceptualize these pathways but is a gross oversimplification; in reality, many of these enzymes are multi-domain proteins that can exist in multiple conformational states, participate in multiple protein-protein interactions, and experience a gradient of variable activity levels depending on these states. The molecular mechanisms that govern the activity of these kinases is extraordinarily complex, and though much has been discovered in recent years, much remains to be understood, especially for the Tec ...
Cellular membranes act as signaling platforms and control solute transport. Membrane receptors, transporters, and enzymes communicate with intracellular processes through protein-protein interactions. Using a split-ubiquitin yeast two-hybrid screen that covers a test-space of 6.4 × 106 pairs, we identified 12,102 membrane/signaling protein interactions from Arabidopsis. Besides confirmation of expected interactions such as heterotrimeric G protein subunit interactions and aquaporin oligomerization, >99% of the interactions were previously unknown. Interactions were confirmed at a rate of 32% in orthogonal in planta split-green flourescent protein interaction assays, which was statistically indistinguishable from the confirmation rate for known interactions collected from literature (38%). Regulatory associations in membrane protein trafficking, turnover, and phosphorylation include regulation of potassium channel activity through abscisic acid signaling, transporter activity by a WNK kinase, ...

An integral component of understanding E3 ligase function is identifying the enzymes cognate substrate(s) and/or binding proteins. Previous binding partners of BCA2 included Rab7, isolated through yeast-II-hybrid screening [17], tetherin, which was found though brute-force GST-pulldowns [18], and ubiquitin and UBC9 from bacteria-II- hybrid screening [7, 16]. Bacteria and yeast screening systems were used in this study to identify additional potential binding partners of BCA2 (Table 1). Of the potential partners found, 14-3-3σ and hHR23a were chosen for further investigation in the context of BCA2 activity and expression. Through binding experiments we confirmed that the BCA2 protein bound both to 14-3-3σ and hHR23a (Figure 1B and 1C). hHR23a and BCA2 were co-expressed in a mammalian system, while 14-3-3σ was expressed in a bacterial system and incubated with recombinant purified BCA2. The expression levels of wild-type BCA2 and the S132, 133A mutant in HEK293T cells were much lower than ...
The yeast three-hybrid (Y3H) approach shows considerable promise for the unbiased identification of novel small molecule-protein interactions. In recent years, it has been successfully used to link a number of bioactive molecules to novel protein binding partners. However despite its potential importance as a protein target identification method, the Y3H technique has not yet been widely adopted, in part due to the challenges associated with the synthesis of the complex chemical inducers of dimerisation (CIDs). The development of a modular approach using potentially
Biochemical processes within a cell or an organism are usually induced by molecular interaction and recognition events. One major aim of drug discovery is to identify bioactive molecular structures that can be used to sufficiently interfere with such molecular interaction processes and thereby positively influence and eventually cure a disease. Antagonists which prohibit the interactions between naturally occurring ligands and their protein receptors could be represented as good drug candidates. Low molecular weight ligands can interact with macromolecular target through covalent and noncovalent interactions. Noncovalent binding is characterized by equilibrium thermodynamics. Important noncovalent interactions are hydrogen bonds, ionic interactions and hydrophobic contacts. Steric and electronic complementarity between protein receptor and low molecular ligand seem to be the most important prerequisite to allow a tightly and selectively association. In almost any drug discovery project based on ...

The C type natriuretic peptide receptor (NPRC) also known as NPR3 is a widely expressed single transmembrane-spanning protein. NPRC functions as a homodimer at the cell surface for the metabolic clearance of a broad range of natriuretic peptides from circulation. The intracellular domain of NPRC is coupled to inhibitory G proteins and is involved in mediating signal transduction. In order to further elucidate the role of NPRC in signal transduction a proteomic approach was taken to identify putative protein binding partners for NPRC in different cell-types. An interrogation of the molecular association between NPRC and its identified protein binding partner(s) was carried out in different cell types to identify the specific interacting domains. The physiological role of the association between NPRC and its protein binding partner(s) were investigated in situ. Furthermore NPRC is subject to post translation modifications including glycosylation and phosphorylation. Although evidence suggests NPRC is
Protein binding microarrays (PBM) are a high throughput technology used to characterize protein-DNA binding. The arrays measure a proteins affinity toward thousands of double-stranded DNA sequences at once, producing a comprehensive binding specificity catalog. We present a linear model for predicting the binding affinity of a protein toward DNA sequences based on PBM data. Our model represents the measured intensity of an individual probe as a sum of the binding affinity contributions of the probes subsequences. These subsequences characterize a DNA binding motif and can be used to predict the intensity of protein binding against arbitrary DNA sequences. Our method was the best performer in the Dialogue for Reverse Engineering Assessments and Methods 5 (DREAM5) transcription factor/DNA motif recognition challenge. For the DREAM5 bonus challenge, we also developed an approach for the identification of transcription factors based on their PBM binding profiles. Our approach for TF identification ...

We report a new method, Interaction-Dependent PRobe Incorporation Mediated by Enzymes, or ID-PRIME, for imaging protein-protein interactions (PPIs) inside living cells. ID-PRIME utilizes a mutant of Escherichia coli lipoic acid ligase, LplA[superscript W37V], which can catalyze the covalent ligation of a coumarin fluorophore onto a peptide recognition sequence called LAP1. The affinity between the ligase and LAP1 is tuned such that, when each is fused to a protein partner of interest, LplA[superscript W37V] labels LAP1 with coumarin only when the protein partners to which they are fused bring them together. Coumarin labeling in the absence of such interaction is low or undetectable. Characterization of ID-PRIME in living mammalian cells shows that multiple protein-protein interactions can be imaged (FRB-FKBP, Fos-Jun, and neuroligin-PSD-95), with as little as 10 min of coumarin treatment. The signal intensity and detection sensitivity are similar to those of the widely used fluorescent protein ...
PDZ domains most commonly bind the C-terminus of their protein targets. Typically the C-terminal four residues of the protein target are considered as the binding motif, particularly the C-terminal residue (P0) and third-last residue (P-2) that form the major contacts with the PDZ domains binding groove. We solved crystal structures of seven human PDZ domains, including five of the seven PDLIM family members. The structures of GRASP, PDLIM2, PDLIM5, and PDLIM7 show a binding mode with only the C-terminal P0 residue bound in the binding groove. Importantly, in some cases, the P-2 residue formed interactions outside of the binding groove, providing insight into the influence of residues remote from the binding groove on selectivity. In the GRASP structure, we observed both canonical and noncanonical binding in the two molecules present in the asymmetric unit making a direct comparison of these binding modes possible. In addition, structures of the PDZ domains from PDLIM1 and PDLIM4 also presented here
Our results show that LCRs are preferentially located towards sequence extremities, and that proteins with LCRs in their sequence extremities have more protein binding partners than proteins with LCRs in their central regions. Furthermore, we have shown the length of LCRs to be positively correlated with the number of binding partners, but only in the sequence extremities. While t-LCRs can extend free from the rest of the protein structure, c-LCRs are likely to be surrounded by protein globular domains, thus limiting their flexibility and accessibility, and therefore the number of different proteins to which they can mediate binding. By contrast, if t-LCRs themselves tend to act as promiscuous interfaces for protein binding, this would explain our observation that proteins with longer t-LCR regions have a tendency towards a higher number of protein binding partners. Examining the list of over-represented GO terms in Table 7, we hypothesise that t-LCRs play major roles in low-specificity ...
The binding modes of a DNA or RNA binding protein refer to the different possible stable binding conformations between the protein and the nucleic acids. There are two main factors that can produce multiple modes of binding:. 1. Many proteins can contain multiple DNA and RNA binding domains with different sequence-binding preferences. When different combinations of these domains bind to different binding sites, we refer to each DNA or RNA interacting combination as a binding mode of the protein.. 2a. Many proteins can oligomerize into homo- and heterodimers and tetramers - whereby the protein-complex now has more DNA and/or RNA binding domains to bind to larger binding sites. In addition, many of these oligomerizing proteins can also bind as monomers to smaller sites. Often, differently sized protein-complexes have different binding properties and are referred to as having different binding modes. "Latent specificity" is when the binding specificity of a protein changes significantly when bound ...
Binding Affinity Prediction of Protein-Ligand complex containing Zinc [ BAPPL-Z ] server computes the binding free energy of a zinc containing metalloprotein-ligand complex using an all atom energy based empirical scoring function
There are many characteristics of a protein-protein interaction that are important. Obviously, it is important to know which proteins are interacting. In many experiments and computational studies, the focus is on interactions between two different proteins. However, you can have one protein interacting with other copies of itself (oligomerization), or three or more different proteins interacting. The stoichiometry of the interaction is also important - that is, how many of each protein involved are present in a given reaction. Some protein interactions are stronger than others, because they bind together more tightly. The strength of binding is known as affinity. Proteins will only bind each other spontaneously if it is energetically favorable. Energy changes during binding are another important aspect of protein interactions. Many of the computational tools that predict interactions are based on the energy of interactions.. In recent years there has been a strong focus on predicting protein ...

This entry represents a domain found in a variety of membrane or lipid associated proteins. It is known as the PLAT (Polycystin-1, Lipoxygenase, Alpha-Toxin) domain or LH2 (Lipoxygenase homology) domain, is found in a variety of membrane or lipid associated proteins. Structurally, this domain forms a beta-sandwich composed of two sheets of four strands each [(PUBMED:10469604), (PUBMED:11985859), (PUBMED:11412104)]. The most highly conserved regions coincide with the beta-strands, with most of the highly conserved residues being buried within the protein. An exception to this is a surface lysine or arginine that occurs on the surface of the fifth beta-strand of the eukaryotic domains. In pancreatic lipase, the lysine in this position forms a salt bridge with the procolipase protein. The conservation of a charged surface residue may indicate the location of a conserved ligand-binding site. It is thought that this domain may mediate membrane attachment via other protein binding partners.. ...

DNA constructs and protein interaction assays. All constructs were generated by subcloning PCR amplification products into appropriate vectors, and each construct was verified by automated DNA sequencing. cDNA fragments encoding the C terminus of the D1 (residues 365-446), D2 (residues 428-443), D3 (residues 385-400), D4 (residues 370-387), and D5 (residues 360-477) receptors were ligated into the yeast GAL4 DNA-binding domain expression vector pAS2-1 (Clontech, Palo Alto, CA). For the D2 receptor screen, the D2-pAS2-1 bait plasmid and the human brain cDNA library in the GAL4 activation domain vector pACT2 (Clontech) were simultaneously cotransformed into the yeast strain MaV103 as previously described (Lin et al., 2001). Positive clones were identified by growth on Leu−/Trp−/His−/Ura−selection plates. Protein interaction was assayed for by β-galactosidase activity via the nitrocellulose filter lift method (Lin et al., 2001).. To identify the sites of interaction between D2 or D3 ...
The Src homology 2 (SH2) domain is a protein interaction domain (PID) contained within SRC and other intracellular signal-transducing proteins, many of which drive tumorigenesis, which mediates protein-protein interactions via the docking of SH2 domain-containing proteins to phosphotyrosine (pY) residues on other proteins. Membrane lipids have recently been shown to regulate protein-protein interactions mediated by a different PID and to bind to several SH2 domains. To elucidate the role of lipids in SH2 domain-mediated protein-protein interactions and signal transduction, Park, Sheng, Silkov, Jung, and colleagues performed surface plasmon resonance analysis to systematically characterize the binding affinities of 76 of the 121 known SH2 domains for plasma membrane (PM)-mimetic vesicles which recapitulate the lipid profile of cytofacial PM. Sixty-eight out of the 76 SH2 domains analyzed exhibited moderately high to high levels of affinity for PM-mimetic vesicles. Twelve of 18 SH2 domains ...
The regulation of protein function through oligomerization is a common theme in biological systems. In this work, I have focused on the effects of the oligomeric states of the human Rad52 protein on activities related to DNA binding. HsRad52, a member of the RAD52 epistasis group, is thought to play an important and as yet undefined role in homologous recombination. HsRad52 preferentially binds to ssDNA over dsDNA and stimulates HsRad51-mediated strand exchange (Benson et al., 1998). In either the presence or absence of DNA, HsRad52 has been observed to form both 10 nm ring-like structures as well as higher order oligomers consisting of multiple 10 nm rings (Van Dyck et al., 1998; Van Dyck et al., 1999). Earlier protein-protein interaction studies mapped the domain responsible for HsRad52 self-association in the N-terminus (residues 85-159) (Shen et al., 1996). Data presented here identifies a novel self-association domain in the C-terminus of HsRad52 that is responsible for the formation of higher
Integrins undergo large‐scale conformational changes (Springer & Dustin, 2012). In the bent‐closed (BC) conformation, the integrin ectodomain folds at knees in the α‐ and β‐subunits so that the head and upper legs associate with the lower legs (Fig 1A). In two extended states, the extended‐closed (EC) and extended‐open (EO) conformations, extension of the α‐ and β‐knees raises the headpiece above the lower legs on cell surfaces (Fig 1A). In transition from EC to EO, that is, headpiece opening, the ligand‐binding metal ion‐dependent adhesion site (MIDAS) in the β‐subunit βI domain rearranges. This reshaping of the ligand‐binding site is linked by α‐helix pistoning within the βI domain to swing of the hybrid domain away from the integrin α‐subunit (Fig 1A). Although the affinities of these states have not yet been measured, previous studies have correlated integrin adhesiveness and high affinity for ligand with the EO conformation (Takagi et al, 2002, 2003; ...

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) play crucial roles in many biological processes, such as post-transcription of gene regulation. ncRNAs mainly function through interaction with RNA binding proteins (RBPs). To understand the function of a ncRNA, a fundamental step is to identify which protein is involved into its interaction. Therefore it is promising to computationally predict RBPs, where the major challenge is that the interaction pattern or motif is difficult to be found.. In this study, researchers from Shanghai Jiao Tong University propose a computational method IPMiner (Interaction Pattern Miner) to predict ncRNA-protein interactions from sequences, which makes use of deep learning and further improves its performance using stacked ensembling. One of the IPMiners typical merits is that it is able to mine the hidden sequential interaction patterns from sequence composition features of protein and RNA sequences using stacked autoencoder, and then the learned hidden features are fed into random ...

Interleukin-23 (IL-23) is a heterodimeric cytokine composed of an IL12B (IL-12p40) subunit (that is shared with IL12) and the IL23A (IL-23p19) subunit. A functional receptor for IL-23 (the IL-23 receptor) has been identified and is composed of IL-12R β1 and IL-23R. IL-23 was first described by Robert Kastelein and colleagues at the DNAX research institute using a combination of computational, biochemical and cellular immunology approaches. Prior to the discovery of IL-23, IL-12 had been proposed to represent a key mediator of inflammation in mouse models of inflammation. However, many studies aimed at assessing the role of IL-12 had blocked the activity of IL-12p40, and were therefore not as specific as thought. Studies which blocked the function of IL-12p35 did not produce the same results as those targeting IL-12p40 as would have been expected if both subunits formed part of IL-12 only. The discovery of an additional potential binding partner for IL-12p40 led to a reassessment of this role ...

No single molecule knows how to replicate, but together they do. There are thousands of kinds of molecules in your cells. No molecule knows how to replicate. DNA requires RNA, which requires proteins, which require the translation of RNA to proteins, which requires proteins to do the translation, which are called synthetase, they load the right amino acids on to the right transfer RNAs that bind to the right sites on the messenger RNA. A cell is a collectively autocatalytic system. All free living organisms are collectively autocatalytic systems, in richly coupled cross catalytic network.. As the diversity of molecules increases the number of interactions increases faster. At some point theres a phase transition and you just get popping out at you the emergence of collectively autocatalytic sets. Its not reducible to the underlying physics.. ...

Ligand binding affinities at G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) have historically been determined using a radioligand that competes for receptor binding sites against an unlabeled drug-like compound. But the potential hazards of open-source radioisotope handling, and the environmental impact of radioisotope disposal, make this a less desirable and costly technology. Therefore, new fluorescent based alternatives have been developed to replace radioligands.
We developed models for physically realistic consecutive and independent binding schemes and compared them with the Hill equation (Figure 1). It follows from this comparison that the "half-effect" concentration may significantly differ from the conventional Hill equation depending on the binding mechanism. We used our models to rigorously investigate mechanisms for second messenger activation by multisite proteins. We show that differential and selective activation of different targets by the same protein-ligand complex (Ca2+ and calmodulin, for example) can be achieved by biologically active non-saturated intermediate multisite protein-ligand complexes. ...

All proteins belonging to the hsp70 family bind ATP. A variety of functions has been postulated for hsp70 proteins. It now appears [7] that some hsp70 proteins play an important role in the transport of proteins across membranes. They also seem to be involved in protein folding and in the assembly/ disassembly of protein complexes [8]. We have derived three signature patterns for the hsp70 family of proteins; the first centered on a conserved pentapeptide found in the N-terminal section of these proteins; the two others on conserved regions located in the central part of the sequence.

The long-range electrostatic forces of the targets in round 2 of the Critical Assessment of PRediction of Interactions (CAPRI) experiment were examined and a simple guided docking method, based on these forces, was applied. The method described consists of calculating an initial rigid body trajectory and an optional final, fully flexible refinement stage. Although only limited success was found in predicting the final complexes, some interesting information was discovered. In particular, the long-range forces seem to give some insight into the unusual binding mode of target 4 while raising some questions about target 7, which warrant further investigation.

In comparison to 17-AAG, most derivatives retained similar binding affinities to Hsp90 but showed lower HER2 activity. The introduction of a basic hydrophilic group on both C-17 and C-18 increased the Hsp90-binding affinity and HER2 activity. Conversely, the introduction of hydrophobic and bulky substituents on the C-18 decreased the Hsp90 affinity dramatically. The in vitro cell-cytotoxic assay with 4 cell lines demonstrated that some of the resulting derivatives showed significantly increased cytotoxic activities compared to 17-AAG. Compound-5 (CO-5) showed higher cytotoxic activity than 17-AAG against all 4 cell lines. CO-22 exhibited broad cytotoxic activities in each cell line (IC50 = 13.9, 0.45, 6.3 and 2.9 μM respectively) and higher Hsp90-binding affinity than 17-AAG (EC50 = 60 nM and 280 nM respectively ...
A drug which attenuates the effect of an agonist. It may be competitive (or surmountable), i.e. it binds reversibly to a region of the receptor in common with an agonist, but occupies the site without activating the effector mechanism. The effects of a c ompetitive antagonist may be overcome by increasing the concentration of agonist, thereby shifting the equilibrium and increasing the proportion of receptors which the agonist occupies. This type of antagonist is discussed further in the next section. Alternatively, antagonists may be unsurmountable, where no amount of agonist can completely overcome the inhibition once it has been established. Unsurmountable antagonists may bind covalently to the agonist binding site (competi tive irreversible antagonists), in which case there is a period before the covalent bond forms during which competing ligands can prevent the inhibition. Other types of unsurmountable antagonists act allosterically at a different site on the receptor or an associated ion ...

Different cell types vary widely in their susceptibility to killing by the pore-forming cytolytic molecule perforin. In particular, the cells responsible for synthesis of perforin, i.e. cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) and natural killer (NK) cells, are very resistant to cytolysis by this molecule. It has previously been suggested that resistance is due, at least in part, to diminished binding of perforin to these cells. The purpose of the present study was to compare binding of perforin to sensitive and resistant cell types. To this end, perforin was biosynthetically labelled prior to purification. The purified labelled protein was then utilized to obtain a direct measure of the amount of perforin bound to cells during attack. Resistant cells (CTL, neutrophils) bound at least as much perforin as did sensitive cells (K562, HL60 etc.), indicating that resistance to perforin involves mechanisms operating after binding of the lytic molecule.. ...

Aberrant activation of receptor tyrosine kinases, such as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), plays a role in cancer initiation, progression, and acquired drug resistance. Genetic analysis may not always reveal aberrant activity of receptor tyrosine kinase signaling; thus, detecting active signaling through these kinases in clinical samples should improve prognostication and personalization of therapies. Diverse cancers, for example, those found in the lung, colon, or head and neck, can have aberrant activation of EGFR signaling, and EGFR-targeted therapies are used to treat these diseases. Smith et al. developed a proximity ligation assay (PLA) to detect the interaction between EGFR and the requisite signaling adaptor GRB2 (growth factor receptor-bound protein 2) in common clinical preparations. EGFR:GRB2 PLA recapitulated traditional readouts of active EGFR signaling in cultured cells, in a panel of tumor xenografts in mice derived from primary patient samples, and in samples from three ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Tissue-specific splicing regulator Fox-1 induces exon skipping by interfering E complex formation on the downstream intron of human F1γ gene. AU - Fukumura, Kazuhiro. AU - Kato, Ayako. AU - Jin, Yui. AU - Ideue, Takashi. AU - Hirose, Tetsuro. AU - Kataoka, Naoyuki. AU - Fujiwara, Toshinobu. AU - Sakamoto, Hiroshi. AU - Inoue, Kunio. PY - 2007/8/1. Y1 - 2007/8/1. N2 - Fox-1 is a regulator of tissue-specific splicing, via binding to the element (U)GCAUG in mRNA precursors, in muscles and neuronal cells. Fox-1 can regulate splicing positively or negatively, most likely depending on where it binds relative to the regulated exon. In cases where the (U)GCAUG element lies in an intron upstream of the alternative exon, Fox-1 protein functions as a splicing repressor to induce exon skipping. Here we report the mechanism of exon skipping regulated by Fox-1, using the hF1γ gene as a model system. We found that Fox-1 induces exon 9 skipping by repressing splicing of the downstream intron 9 ...
The precise mechanisms by which coactivators function to regulate transcription remain unclear. Coactivators have a structural role in serving as focal points for multiple protein-protein interactions including association with many transcriptional activation domains (Verrijzer and Tjian, 1996; Shikama et al., 1997; Xu et al., 1999). These interactions might help recruit components of the basal transcriptional machinery including RNA polymerase to a particular promoter (Barlev et al., 1995; Nakajima et al., 1997a, b). Coactivators can also function as enzymes that modify both other transcriptional regulators and the chromatin environment within which transcription occurs (Brownell and Allis, 1996; Gregory and Horz, 1998). The exact significance of these diverse roles is a topic of substantial research interest.. Among the best studied systems for the analysis of coactivator function is the GCN5p-ADA2p-ADA3p complex (Berger et al., 1992; Candau and Berger, 1996; Candau et al., 1997; Grant et al., ...
