We recently reported that a histidine (H191) in the S3–S4 loop of domain I is critical for nickel inhibition of the Cav3.2 T‐type Ca2+ channel. As in Cav3.2, two histidine residues are commonly found in the IS3–IS4 loops of mammalian Cav2.3 Ca2+ channels, which are also blocked by low micromolar concentrations of nickel. We show here by site‐directed mutagenesis and electrophysiology that both residues contribute to the nickel sensitivity of Cav2.3, with H183 being more critical than H179… Expand
Structural Determinants of the High Affinity Extracellular Zinc Binding Site on Cav3.2 T-type Calcium Channels*
TLDR
The key findings of the study are that the metal binding site is composed of a Asp-Gly-His motif in IS3–S4 and a second aspartate residue in IS2. Expand
Two sets of amino acids of the domain I of Cav2.3 Ca2+ channels contribute to their high sensitivity to extracellular protons
TLDR
It is reported here that the changes in current amplitude induced by extracellular acidification or alkalinisation are more important for Cav2.3 R type than for Cav1.1 P/Q-type Ca2+ channels. Expand
Ins and outs of T-channel structure function
TLDR
Study in cultured hippocampal neurons provided novel insights into how mutations found in idiopathic generalized epilepsy patients increase seizure susceptibility by both altering T-current pacemaker currents and by activating Ca-activated transcription factors that regulate dendritic arborization.

Molecular and biophysical basis of glutamate and trace metal modulation of voltage-gated Cav2.3 calcium channels
TLDR
Overall, the results suggest a new mechanism by which Glu and trace metals transiently modulate voltage-dependent gating of Cav2.3, potentially affecting synaptic transmission and plasticity in the brain. Expand
Molecular and biophysical basis of glutamate and trace metal modulation of voltage-gated Cav2.3 calcium channels
Here, we describe a new mechanism by which glutamate (Glu) and trace metals reciprocally modulate activity of the Cav2.3 channel by profoundly shifting its voltage-dependent gating. We show that zincExpand
Molecular Determinants of Multiple Effects of Nickel on NMDA Receptor Channels
TLDR
The present work aimed to find the sites of Ni2+ interaction on the NR2A and NR2B subunits by expressing wild-type and mutated NRs in either HEK293 cells or Xenopus laevis oocytes and postulate the existence of an additional divalent cation binding site in the M3-M4 extracellular loop. Expand
Unique cysteine-enriched, D2L5 and D4L6 extracellular loops in CaV3 T-type channels alter the passage and block of monovalent and divalent ions
TLDR
It is illustrated here that the preferences for greater Na+ or Ca2+ ion current passing through CaV3 T-type channels are contributed by paired cysteines within D2L5 and D4L6 extracellular loops looming above the pore selectivity filter. Expand
Cav2.3 channel function and Zn2+-induced modulation: potential mechanisms and (patho)physiological relevance
TLDR
The picture that emerges is one where Cav2.3 channel expression parallels the occurrence of loosely bound Zn2+ pools in different tissues and where these channels may serve to translate physiological Zn 2+ signals into changes of electrical activity and/or intracellular Ca2+ levels. Expand
Effect of ZnCl2 and Chelation of Zinc Ions by N,N-Diethyldithiocarbamate (DEDTC) on the ERG b-Wave Amplitude from the Isolated Superfused Vertebrate Retina
TLDR
The stimulatory effect of ZnCl2 on the ERG b-wave amplitude resembles the stimulatories effect of NiCl2 and may be mediated rather by the NiCl 2-sensitive, Cav2.3 E-/R-type voltage-gated Ca2+ channels than by NiCl1-sensitive T-type channels. Expand

A Molecular Determinant of Nickel Inhibition in Cav3.2 T-type Calcium Channels*
TLDR
Findings indicate that His-191 in the S3–S4 loop is a critical residue conferring nickel block to Cav3.3.2 and reveal a novel role for the S4 loop to control ion permeation through T-type Ca2+ channels. Expand
Mapping the Receptor Site for Hanatoxin, a Gating Modifier of Voltage-Dependent K+ Channels
TLDR
Results suggest that residues near the outer edges of S3 and S4 form the HaTx binding sites and are eccentrically located at least 15 A from the central pore axis on the surface of voltage-gated K+ channels. Expand
Direct binding of G-protein βλ complex to voltage-dependent calcium channels
TLDR
Mutation of an arginine residue within the N-terminal motif abolished βλ binding and rendered the channel refractory to G-protein modulation when expressed in Xenopus oocytes, showing that the interaction is indeed responsible for G- protein-dependent modulation of Ca2+ channel activity. Expand
The C2A Domain of Synaptotagmin Alters the Kinetics of Voltage-gated Ca2+ Channels Cav1.2 (Lc-type) and Cav2.3 (R-type)*
TLDR
It is found that the C2A polylysine motif presents a critical interaction surface with Cav1.2 and Cav2.3, two channels required for neurotransmission, and indicates that calcium-independent properties of Syt 1 regulate voltage-gated Ca2+ channels and contribute to the molecular events underlying transmitter release.

Zn2+ sensitivity of high- and low-voltage activated calcium channels.
TLDR
The findings support the notion that the Zn2+ block, mediated by multiple mechanisms, may depend on conformational changes surrounding the alpha1 pore regions, and provide fundamental insights into the mechanism underlying the inhibitory effect of zinc on various Ca2+ channel subtypes. Expand
Direct interaction of Gβγ with a C-terminal Gβγ-binding domain of the Ca2+ channel α1 subunit is responsible for channel inhibition by G protein-coupled receptors
TLDR
The results define the molecular mechanism by which presynaptic G protein-coupled receptors inhibit neurotransmission and do not support proposals that Gβγ inhibits α1 function by interacting with the site located in the loop I–II linker. Expand
Nickel block of three cloned T-type calcium channels: low concentrations selectively block alpha1H.
TLDR
It is concluded that Ni(2+) is only a selective blocker of alpha1H currents and that the concentrations required to block alpha1G and alpha1I will also affect high-voltage-activated calcium currents. Expand

TLDR
The expression of inward Ba2+ currents reveals voltage-dependent activation and inactivation measured by the cut-open oocyte vaseline-gap technique, with kinetics that correspond to that of a high-voltage-activated neuronal Ca2+ channel, and pharmacologic properties that resemble those of some low-voltAGE-activated neurons Ca2+.

TLDR
This study represents the first mechanistic demonstration of ion channel modulation by ascorbate, and suggests that ascorBate may function as an endogenous modulator of neuronal excitability. Expand
