Action of derivatives of mu-conotoxin GIIIA on sodium channels. Single amino acid substitutions in the toxin separately affect association and dissociation rates.


We have studied binding and block of sodium channels by 12 derivatives of the 22-residue peptide mu-conotoxin GIIIA (mu-CTX) in which single amino acids were substituted as follows: Arg or Lys by Gln, Gln-18 by Lys, Asp by Asn, and HO-Pro by Pro. Derivatives were synthesized as described by Becker et al. [(1989) Eur. J. Biochem. 185, 79]. Binding was… (More)
