Observing conformations of single FoF1-ATP synthases in a fast anti-Brownian electrokinetic trap

A version of an ABELtrap with a laser focus pattern generated by electro-optical beam deflectors and controlled by a programmable FPGA is presented, which could hold single fluorescent nanobeads for more than 100 seconds and increase the observation times of a single particle more than 1000-fold.

Unraveling the Rotary Motors in FoF1-ATP Synthase by Time-Resolved Single-Molecule FRET

Detection of single fluorophore molecules was reported 25 years ago, at first in a crystalline matrix at cryogenic temperatures but quickly followed by single-molecule studies of biological machines

Towards monitoring conformational changes of the GPCR neurotensin receptor 1 by single-molecule FRET

G protein-coupled receptor 1 was found to be monomeric in liposomes, with a small fraction being dimeric and oligomeric, showing homoFRET, and agonist binding to NTSR1 was demonstrated by time-resolved single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (smFRET), using neurotensin labeled with the fluorophore ATTO594.

Regulatory conformational changes of the Ɛ subunit in single FRET-labeled F0F1-ATP synthase

An experimental system is developed that can reveal conditions under which ε inhibits the holoenzyme FoF1-ATP synthase in vitro and labels the C-terminal domain of ε and the γ subunit specifically with two different fluorophores for single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (smFRET).

Regulatory conformational changes of the epsilon subunit in single FRET-labeled FoF1-ATP synthase

Labeling the C-terminal domain of epsilon and the gamma subunit specifically with two different fluorophores for single-molecule Foerster resonance energy transfer (smFRET) allowed monitoring of the conformation of ePSilon in the reconstituted enzyme in real time.

Observing monomer: dimer transitions of neurotensin receptors 1 in single SMALPs by homoFRET and in an ABELtrap

The oligomerization state of the human NTSR1 tagged with mRuby3 is reported by dissolving the plasma membranes of living HEK293T cells into 10 nm-sized soluble lipid nanoparticles by addition of styrene-maleic acid copolymers (SMALPs).

The reliability of molecular dynamics simulations of the multidrug transporter P-glycoprotein in a membrane environment

The work brings into question the reliability of conclusions made in regard to the nature of specific interactions inferred from previous simulation studies on this system involving similar sampling times and highlights the need to demonstrate the statistical significance of any results obtained in simulations of large flexible proteins, especially where the initial structure is uncertain.



Detecting substeps in the rotary motors of FoF1-ATP synthase by Hidden Markov Models

The basic prerequisites for the experimental single-molecule FRET data are defined that allow for discrimination between a 120o stepping mode or a 36o substep rotation mode for the proton-driven Fo motor of ATP synthase.

Drug transport mechanism of P-glycoprotein monitored by single molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer

The data show that Pgp is a highly dynamic enzyme that appears to fluctuate between at least two major conformations during steady state turnover.

Monitoring the rotary motors of single FoF1-ATP synthase by synchronized multi channel TCSPC

The action mode of bactericidal drugs, i.e. inhibitors of FoF1-ATP synthase like aurovertin, could be investigated by the time resolved single-molecule FRET approach.

Three-color Förster resonance energy transfer within single F₀F₁-ATP synthases: monitoring elastic deformations of the rotary double motor in real time.

This work presents a new single-molecule FRET approach to observe both rotary motors simultaneously in a single F(O)F(1)-ATP synthase at work, and labels this enzyme with three fluorophores, specifically at the stator part and at the two rotors.

Dynamic Ligand-induced Conformational Rearrangements in P-glycoprotein as Probed by Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer Spectroscopy*

The two nucleotide binding domains are found to be in close association during the catalytic cycle as determined by fluorescence spectroscopy, suggesting the presence of at least three major conformations of the NBDs during catalysis.

On the Origin of Large Flexibility of P-glycoprotein in the Inward-facing State*

The characterized distinct dynamics of P-glycoprotein suggests mechanistic diversity of ATP-coupled transport in ABC transporters and proposes that the transmembrane domains of Pgp might be more flexible than other structurally known ABC exporters.

Analysis of single-molecule FRET trajectories using hidden Markov modeling.

An analysis scheme is developed that casts single-molecule time-binned FRET trajectories as hidden Markov processes, allowing one to determine, based on probability alone, the most likely FRET-value distributions of states and their interconversion rates while simultaneously determining the mostlikely time sequence of underlying states for each trajectory.

Monitoring subunit rotation in single FRET-labeled FoF1-ATP synthase in an anti-Brownian electrokinetic trap

FoF1-ATP synthase is the membrane protein catalyzing the synthesis of the 'biological energy currency' adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) is applied to monitor subunit rotation in the two coupled motors F1 and Fo.

Nucleotide-induced Structural Changes in P-glycoprotein Observed by Electron Microscopy*

The structural analysis presented here adds to the emerging picture that multidrug ABC transporters function by switching between two major conformations in a nucleotide-dependent manner.
