Ion channels gated by cyclic nucleotides have crucial roles in neuronal excitability and signal transduction of sensory neurons. Here, we studied ligand binding of a cyclic nucleotide-activated K(+) channel from Mesorhizobium loti and its isolated cyclic nucleotide-binding domain. The channel and the binding domain alone bind cyclic AMP with similar(More)
Potassium (i.e., K(+)) channels allow for the controlled and selective passage of potassium ions across the plasma membrane via a conserved pore domain. In voltage-gated K(+) channels, gating is the result of the coordinated action of two coupled gates: an activation gate at the intracellular entrance of the pore and an inactivation gate at the selectivity(More)
Solid-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance can provide detailed insight into structural and dynamical aspects of complex biomolecules. With increasing molecular size, advanced approaches for spectral simplification and the detection of medium to long-range contacts become of critical relevance. We have analyzed the protonation pattern of a membrane-embedded ion(More)
Channels regulated by cyclic nucleotides are key signalling proteins in several biological pathways. The regulatory aspect is conferred by a C-terminal cyclic nucleotide-binding domain (CNBD). We report resonance assignments of the CNBD of a bacterial mlCNG channel obtained using 2D and 3D solid-state NMR under Magic-angle Spinning conditions. A secondary(More)
