  • To date, 5 β-subunit and 11 γ-subunit genes and have been identified in mammals. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Gβ genes have very similar sequences, while significantly greater variation is seen in the Gγ genes, indicating that the functional specificity of the Gβγ dimer may be dependent on the type of Gγ subunit involved. (wikipedia.org)
  • interaction
  • We hypothesized that alcohols exhibit their effect on AC activity by direct interaction with AC proteins. (nih.gov)
  • The Gγ subunit is considerably smaller than Gβ, and is unstable on its own, requiring interaction with Gβ to fold, explaining the close association of the dimer. (wikipedia.org)
  • This prenylation is thought to be involved in directing the interaction of the subunit both with membrane lipids and other proteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • Coexpression of RGS11 with different Gbeta subunits reveals specific interaction between RGS11 and Gbeta5. (embl-heidelberg.de)

  • The 1992 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Edwin G. Krebs and Edmond H. Fischer for describing how reversible phosphorylation works as a switch to activate proteins, and to regulate various cellular processes including glycogenolysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although these hypotheses were initially controversial, Gβγ has since been shown to directly regulate as many different protein targets as the Gα subunit. (wikipedia.org)
  • helical
  • Khorana 1992), these proteins are predicted to contain seven transmembrane helical domains that anchor them to the plasma membrane. (springer.com)

  • The heavy chain of kinesin-1 comprises a globular head (the motor domain) at the amino terminal end connected via a short, flexible neck linker to the stalk - a long, central alpha-helical coiled coil domain - that ends in a carboxy terminal tail domain which associates with the light-chains. (wikipedia.org)
  • ribosomal

  • plasma membrane
  • The inactive GDP-bound form prevents the association of RGS14 with centrosomes and is required for the translocation of RGS14 from the cytoplasm to the plasma membrane. (abcam.co.jp)
  • Finally, PhLP is released, exposing the binding site for Gα, allowing for formation of the final trimer at the endoplasmic reticulum, where it is targeted to the plasma membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • retinal
  • These domains form a pocket where the photoreactive chromophore, retinal, lies horizontally to the cell membrane, linked to a lysine residue in the seventh transmembrane domain of the protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • In rhodopsin, the aldehyde group of retinal is covalently linked to the amino group of a lysine residue on the protein in a protonated Schiff base (-NH+=CH-). When rhodopsin absorbs light, its retinal cofactor isomerizes from the 11-cis to the all-trans configuration, and the protein subsequently undergoes a series of relaxations to accommodate the altered shape of the isomerized cofactor. (wikipedia.org)
  • In subsequent intermediates lumirhodopsin and metarhodopsin I, the Schiff's base linkage to all-trans retinal remains protonated, and the protein retains its reddish color. (wikipedia.org)
