Title: Allosterism at Muscarinic Receptors: Ligands and Mechanisms. VOLUME: 5 ISSUE: 6. Author(s):N. J.M. Birdsall and S. Lazareno. Affiliation:Division of Physical Biochemistry, National Institute for Medical Research, London NW7 1AA, UK.. Keywords:muscarinic receptors, allosterism, cooperativity, enhancers, receptor models, structure-activity relationships, interaction studies, receptor subtype selectivity. Abstract: The evaluation of allosteric ligands at muscarinic receptors is discussed in terms of the ability of the experimental data to be interpreted by the allosteric ternary complex model. The compilation of useful SAR information of allosteric ligands is not simple, especially for muscarinic receptors, where there are multiple allosteric sites and complex interactions. ...
Cholinergc Muscarinic Binding by Human Lymphocytes: Changes with Aging, Antagonist Treatment, and Sende Dementia of the Alzheimer Type - Jose M. Rabey, MD, Louis Shenkman, MD, and Gad M. Gilad, PhD In peripheral blood lymphocytes (mixed lymphocytes isolated on a Ficoll-Hypaque density gradient) derived from normal human subjects, cholinergic muscarinic binding capacity was found to increase with age. In contrast, lymphocytes derived from patients with probable senile dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT) exhibited a marked reduction in binding capacity. Treatment of these patients with antimuscarinic drugs was associated with increased muscarinic binding by lymphocytes. These results indicate that cholinergic muscarinic binding by peripheral blood lymphocytes may be useful in the study of alterations associated with aging and SDAT, as well as in evaluating changes induced by certain cholinergic drug treatments.

M2 Muscarinic Receptor Knockout: role in learning and memory, and mediating analgesic effectsof muscarinic agonists. The five Muscarinic Acetylcholine (ACh) receptors are G-protein coupled receptors (M1R-M5R). M1R, M3R and M5R selectively couple to Gq/G11; M2R and M4R selectively couple to Gi/Go. M2R knockout mice are viable and fertile, and have no major morphological abnormalities.. M2 muscarinic receptors are located in the central nervous system and the periphery. Studies with M2R knockout mice strongly suggest that the M2 receptor is the key presynaptic muscarinic receptor mediating the inhibition of hippocampal and cortical ACh release. Studies with M2R knockout mice suggest that central M2Rs play important roles in learning and memory. The M2R mediates ACh-mediated reductions in heart rate. Analysis of M2R knockout mice also has shown that the analgesic effects observed after administration of muscarinic agonists are mediated primarily by M2Rs.. ...
Acetylcholine (ACh) has been shown to induce nasal congestion via vasorelaxation of intranasal posterior collecting veins (PCV) coupled with vasocontraction of extranasal outflow veins (dorsal nasal vein [DNV] and sphenopalatine vein [SPV]). The aim of this study was to characterize the muscarinic receptor subtype(s) involved in ACh-induced relaxation and contraction in canine nasal veins. PCV, DNV, and SPV were isolated from the canine nose. In vitro isometric tension of segments from these veins was monitored to reflect vascular reactivity. ACh concentration-response curve was studied in the presence of muscarinic receptor subtype inhibitors. Immunohistochemical localization of M(1)-M(5) receptor subtypes in the veins was performed. ACh-induced relaxation in PVC was inhibited by pertussis toxin (PTX; inhibitor of G-protein that couples M(2)/M(4) receptors), methoctramine (selective M(2) muscarinic receptor inhibitor), muscarinic toxin 7 (MT-7; selective M(1) muscarinic receptor inhibitor), and ...

Neuronal M2 receptor function can be studied using selective agonists and antagonists such as pilocarpine and gallamine. In pathogen-free guinea pigs indomethacin (1 mg/kg) did not alter the effect of either gallamine or pilocarpine, thus in pathogen free animals neuronal M2 muscarinic receptors function independently of cyclooxygenase products. However, in guinea pigs infected with virus, (which causes temporary loss of M2 receptor function), and then allowed to recover for 8 wk (to allow recovery of M2 receptors), indomethacin prevented both gallamines potentiation and ...
How is Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor abbreviated? M3R stands for Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor. M3R is defined as Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor somewhat frequently.
The present study investigated pharmacological characterizations of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) subtypes involving ACh-induced endothelium-independent vasodilatation in rat mesenteric arteries. Changes in perfusion pressure to periarterial nerve stimulation and ACh were measured before and after the perfusion of Krebs solution containing muscarinic receptor antagonists. Distributions of muscarinic AChR subtypes in mesenteric arteries with an intact endothelium were studied using Western blotting. The expression level of M1 and M3 was significantly greater than that of M2. Endothelium removal significantly decreased expression levels of M2 and M3, but not M1. In perfused mesenteric vascular beds with intact endothelium and active tone, exogenous ACh (1, 10, and 100 nmol) produced concentration-dependent and long-lasting vasodilatations. In endothelium-denuded preparations, relaxation to ACh (1 nmol) disappeared, but ACh at 10 and 100 nmol caused long-lasting vasodilatations, which ...
The muscarinic cholinergic receptors belong to a larger family of G protein-coupled receptors. The functional diversity of these receptors is defined by the binding of acetylcholine and includes cellular responses such as adenylate cyclase inhibition, phosphoinositide degeneration, and potassium channel mediation. Muscarinic receptors influence many effects of acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system. The muscarinic cholinergic receptor 1 is involved in mediation of vagally-induced bronchoconstriction and in the acid secretion of the gastrointestinal tract. The gene encoding this receptor is localized to 11q13. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...
Purpose: : The objectives of this study were: 1) to determine, in vitro, the muscarinic receptor subtype selectivity of 1-[1-(2-Tolyl)-1,4-bipiperidin-4-yl]-1,3-dihydro-2H-benzimidazol-2-one (TBPB): and 2) to examine, in vivo, its effect on ocular hypotension and miosis. Methods: : Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells transfected with plasmid expressing human m1, m3, m4, and m5 were used to determine receptor selectivity of TBPB in a fluorometric imaging plate reader (FLPR) assay. Normotensive Dutch Belted rabbits were used to examine the effects of TBPB on intraocular pressure (IOP) and pupillary size upon topical application. In other studies, rabbits were dosed topically with TBPB in the absence and presence of pirenzepine, AF-DX 116 and 4-DAMP, M1, M2, and M3 receptor selective antagonists, respectively, to confirm the predominant muscarinic receptor subtype responsible for the ocular action of TBPB. Results: : TBPB selectively activated m1 receptors with E-max of 91% compared to carbachol ...
Background and Objective: Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs) are 7-transmembrane, G protein-coupled receptors that regulate a variety of physiological processes and represent potentially important targets for therapeutic intervention. mAChRs can be stimulated by full and partial orthosteric and allosteric agonists, however the relative abilities of such ligands to induce conformational changes in the receptor remain unclear. To gain further insight into the actions of mAChR agonists, we have developed a fluorescently tagged M1 mAChR that reports ligand-induced conformational changes in real-time by changes in Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET). Methods: Variants of CFP and YFP were inserted into the third intracellular loop and at the end of the C-terminus of the mouse M1 mAChR, respectively. The optimized FRET receptor construct (M1-cam5) was expressed stably in HEK293 cells. Results: The variant CFP/YFP-receptor chimera expressed predominantly at the plasma membrane of HEK293 ...
The M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (M1ACh-R) is a G protein-coupled receptor that can occur in interconvertible coupled and uncoupled states. It is enriched in the basal ganglia, hippocampus, olfactory bulb, and cortical areas, and plays a role in motor and cognitive functions. Muscarinic M1 agonists are potential therapeutic agents for cognitive disorders. The aim of this study was to evaluate [11C]AF150(S) as a putative M1ACh-R agonist PET ligand, which, owing to its agonist properties, could provide a tool to explore the active G protein-coupled receptor. Regional kinetics of [11C]AF150(S) in rat brain were measured using a high-resolution research tomograph, both under baseline conditions and following pre-treatment with various compounds or co-administration of non-radioactive AF150(S). Data were analysed by calculating standard uptake values and by applying the simplified reference tissue model (SRTM). [11C]AF150(S) was rapidly taken up in the brain, followed by a rapid clearance from all

This reduction begins as late as 7 days post-ischemia and accompanies the accumulation of glia, but is subsequent to completion of the disappearance of CA1 pyramidal cells. In the present study, we showed that this LORMAR was prevented by daily post-ischemic administration of the immunosuppressant cyclosporin A (CsA). The effectiveness of CsA against the LORMAR indicates that an immune mechanism may be involved in the progressive brain damage occurring after transient ...

C elegans GOA-1 protein: activated by the human muscarinic acetylcholine receptor M2 subtype; amino acid sequence in first source
Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChR) have critical roles in the central nervous system and produce many of their effects by activating heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding proteins. However, the five subtypes of muscarinic receptors (M1 through M5) produce distinct signals and thus may use other signaling mechanisms as well. McClatchy et al. screened for proteins that interact with the third intracellular loop portion of the M4 mAChR, a region that is highly variable between receptor subtypes. They identified elongation factor 1A2 (eEF1A2) as an interaction partner and showed that endogenous eEF1A2 could be coimmunoprecipitated with the M4 mAChR, but not the M1 mAChR, from cultured PC12 cells. The i3 loop acts as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for receptor-coupled G proteins and the M4i3 loop also promoted nucleotide exchange on eEF1A2 in vitro. The eEF1A2 protein functions in control of translation and has other proposed functions as well. These functions are thus potentially ...
A significant body of research exists to support the potential therapeutic efficacy of M1 agonists for treating cognitive disorders such as schizophrenia and Alzheimers disease. M1 agonists have been shown to reverse cognitive deficits in animal models (Jones et al., 2005; Langmead et al., 2008; Barak and Weiner 2011), and more importantly the M1 agonist xanomeline has been shown to produce beneficial psychiatric and cognitive effects in human patients (Bodick et al., 1997; Shekhar et al., 2008). Unfortunately, xanomeline also produces serious side effects including salivation, sweating, and gastrointestinal distress. Although xanomeline had originally been reported to be highly selective for M1 over other muscarinic receptor subtypes based upon ex vivo studies (Sauerberg et al., 1992; Shannon et al., 1994), subsequent studies using cloned human muscarinic receptors suggested that xanomeline exhibits very little selectivity among the five muscarinic receptor subtypes (Watson et al., 1998; Wood ...
Spinally administered muscarinic receptor agonists or acetylcholinesterase inhibitors produce effective pain relief. Intrathecal injection of a small dose of neostigmine produces a profound antiallodynic effect in rats with diabetic neuropathy. However, the mechanisms of increased antinociceptive effect of cholinergic agents on diabetic neuropathic pain are not clear. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that spinal muscarinic receptors are up-regulated in diabetes. The withdrawal threshold of the hindpaw in response to noxious heat and pressure stimuli was determined in streptozotocin-induced diabetic and age-matched normal rats. Muscarine-stimulated guanosine 5′-O-(3-[35S]thio)triphosphate ([35S]GTPγS) binding was used to assess the change of functional muscarinic receptors in the spinal cord in diabetes. The [3H]AF-DX 384 membrane binding was performed to determine the number and affinity of spinal cord M2 muscarinic receptors in normal and diabetic rats. We found that the ...

Muscarinic receptors have been implicated in neurological disorders including Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, and schizophrenia. Nineteen derivatives of thiadiazolyltetrahydropyridine (TZTP), a core that has previously shown high affinities towards muscarinic receptor subtypes, were synthesized and evaluated via in vitro binding assays. The title compound, a fluoro-polyethyleneglycol analog of TZTP (4c), was subsequently labelled with fluorine-18. Fluorine-18-labelled 4c was produced, via an automated synthesis, in an average radiochemical yield of 36% (uncorrected for decay), with high radiochemical purity (,99%) and high specific activity (326 GBq/µmol; end-of-bombardment), within 40 min (n = 3). Ex vivo biodistribution studies following tail-vein injection of [18F]4c in conscious rats displayed sufficient brain uptake (0.4%-0.7% injected dose / gram of wet tissue in all brain regions at 5 min post injection); however, there were substantial polar metabolites present in the brain, ...

mRNAs encoding five genetically distinct muscarinic ACh receptors are present in the CNS. Because of their pharmacological similarities, it has not been possible to detect the individual encoded proteins; thus, their physiological functions are not well defined. To characterize the family of proteins, a panel of subtype-selective antibodies was generated against recombinant muscarinic receptor proteins and shown to bind specifically to each of the cloned receptors. Using immunoprecipitation, three receptor proteins (m1, m2, and m4) accounted for the vast majority of the total solubilized muscarinic binding sites in rat brain. These receptor subtypes had marked differences in regional and cellular localization as shown by immunocytochemistry. The m1-protein was present in cortex and striatum and was localized to cell bodies and neurites, consistent with its role as a major postsynaptic muscarinic receptor. The m2-receptor protein was abundant in basal forebrain, scattered striatal neurons, ...

A 35S-labelled synthetic oligonucleotide directed against part of the mRNA coding for the M1 subtype muscarinic receptor was used for in situ hybridization histochemistry in sections of human temporal cortex. M1 receptor mRNA was found in cell populations throughout the grey matter, especially in pyramidal cells. Quantitative densitometric analysis of autoradiograms was used to compare levels of this mRNA between Alzheimers disease and controls. A significant (2.7-fold) increase in hybridization signal was found in Alzheimers disease cases, both in absolute terms and relative to total polyadenylated mRNA as determined by hybridization with an oligodeoxythymidine probe. Elevated levels of muscarinic receptor mRNA may reflect up-regulation of transcription of this gene in response to the cholinergic deficits occurring in the disease.

Controlling enzyme activity by ligand binding to a regulatory domain of choice may have many applications e.g. as biosensors and as tools in regulating cellular functions. However, until now only a small number of ligand-binding domains have been successfully linked to enzyme activity. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) are capable of recognizing an extraordinary structural variety of extracellular signals including inorganic and organic molecules. Ligand binding to GPCR results in conformational changes involving the transmembrane helices. Here, we assessed whether ligand-induced conformational changes within the GPCR helix bundle can be utilized to control the activity of an integrated enzyme. As a proof of principle, we inserted the luciferase amino acid sequence into the third intracellular loop of the M3 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor. This fusion protein retained both receptor and enzyme function. Receptor blockers slightly but significantly reduced enzyme activity. By successive deletion

The present study on dilute suspensions of synaptosomes from rat hippocampus yields evidence that feedback regulation of acetylcholine release in this preparation is exerted by a muscarinic autoreceptor localized on the cholinergic nerve ending itself. A possible model for the sequence of events which may take place at the cholinergic nerve ending is presented. Fresh surgical material has been used to demonstrate that the release of acetylcholine in the human cerebral cortex is also regulated by presynaptic muscarinic receptors. An in vitro test system for the study of drugs which affect the release of acetylcholine has been developed. This system was used to examine the effect of a novel cholinergic ligand, N-methyl-N(l-methyl-4-pyrrolidino-2-butynyl) acetamide, on 3 the release of H-acetylcholine. This ligand appears to act as a presynaptic antagonist and a postsynaptic agonist.. ...

Functional selectivity, which highlights the ability of ligands to differentially activate the signalling pathways linked to G protein-couple receptors (GPCRs) has provided an avenue for developing ligands with greater safety profiles. Pilocarpine (Pilo), a non-selective muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR) agonist has been shown to differentially activate G protein subtypes linked to the M3 mAChR. In this study the pharmacology of Pilo was further investigated using a number of readouts. When compared to methacholine (MCh), a reference agonist, Pilo appeared to preferentially stimulate inositol phosphates production than global receptor phosphorylation. The ligand also appeared to preferentially promote phosphorylation of Ser412 at the third intracellular loop of the receptor than Ser577 at the C-terminal tail. This differential phosphorylation may be linked to the fact that these residues are phosphorylated by distinct protein kinases. However, such preferential phosphorylation was not ...

Mouse pancreatic islets were used to investigate how muscarinic stimulation influences the cytoplasmic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in insulin-secreting B-cells. In the absence of extracellular Ca2+, acetylcholine (ACh) triggered a transient, concentration-dependent and thapsigargin-inhibited increase in [Ca2+]i. In the presence of extracellular Ca2+ and 15 mM glucose, ACh induced a biphasic rise in [Ca2+]i. The initial, transient phase increased with the concentration of ACh, whereas the second, sustained, phase was higher at low (0.1-1 microM) than at high (, or = 10 microM) concentrations of ACh. Thapsigargin attenuated (did not suppress) the first phase of the [Ca2+]i rise and did not affect the sustained response. This sustained rise was inhibited by omission of extracellular Na+ (which prevents the depolarizing action of ACh) and by D600 or diazoxide (which prevent activation of voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels). During steady-state stimulation, the Ca2+ action potentials in B-cells were ...
In two papers in this issue (see Falkenburger et al. [Kinetics of M1 muscarinic receptor…] and Falkenburger et al. [Kinetics of PIP2 metabolism…]), the authors used all of the above-listed advances and performed a systematic analysis of the signal transmission process starting with M1 muscarinic receptors and mediated via Gq proteins to activation of PLCβ1 yielding to PtdIns(4,5)P2 hydrolysis and altered KCNQ channel activity. In a previous paper (Jensen et al., 2009), the authors measured the kinetic parameters of M1R activation, Gq conformational transition, PLC activation, PtdIns(4,5)P2 hydrolysis, and M current suppression after the application of 10 µM of the muscarinic agonist, oxotremorin, using the FRET approach for the individual steps outlined above. These studies measured activation and recovery rates (after removal of the stimulus) for each of the steps in this series of reactions and concluded that the rate-limiting step was the hydrolysis of PtdIns(4,5)P2 in the membrane. ...
Our laboratory is interested in the regulation of and mechanisms responsible for signal transduction in excitable cells. We have had a long-standing interest in the muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChR), which comprise a family of related receptor proteins which are the products of distinct genes. Muscarinic receptors can regulate the activity of enzymes involved in intracellular second messenger pathways, such as adenylyl and guanylyl cyclases, phospholipase C, phosphodiesterases, and protein kinases, and can also regulate the function of ion channels. The mAChR gene family produces these effects by interacting with the members of a second gene family, the GTP-binding coupling proteins (G-proteins), which are required for receptor function. We are using a combination of molecular genetic, immunological, biochemical, physiological, and behavioral studies to study the regulation of expression and mechanisms of action of the mAChR and G-proteins in the nervous system. There are several model ...
