The charge-membrane voltage (Q-V) distribution of wild-type rabbit Na(+)/glucose transporter (rSGLT1) expressed in Xenopus oocytes was investigated in the absence of glucose, using the two-electrode voltage-clamp technique. Although this distribution is generally believed to be well represented by a two-state Boltzmann equation, we recently provided(More)
Using cysteine mutagenesis and chemical modification by methanethiosulfonate derivatives, it was demonstrated that the external putative loop, joining transmembrane segments (TM's) IV-V of rabbit Na+/glucose cotransporter, rSGLT1, forms part of a Na+ binding and voltage sensing domain. Within this region, exposure to cationic(More)
Positions 163, 166, and 173, within the putative external loop joining transmembrane segments IV and V of rabbit Na(+)/glucose cotransporter, form part of its Na(+) interaction and voltage-sensing domain. Since a Q170C mutation within this region exhibits anomalous behavior, its function was further investigated. We used Xenopus oocytes coinjected with(More)
