Structural and functional changes induced in the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor by membrane phospholipids

Re reconstituted purified AChRs from Torpedo into complex multicomponent lipid vesicles in which the phospholipid composition has been systematically altered to postulation of a possible role of certain lipids as peculiar allosteric ligands of the protein.

Heterogeneous Inhibition in Macroscopic Current Responses of Four Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor Subtypes by Cholesterol Enrichment

This study clearly illustrates that a physiologically relevant increase in membrane cholesterol concentration produces a remarkable reduction in the macroscopic current responses of the neuronal α7 and Torpedo nA ChRs functionality, whereas the muscle nAChR appears to be the most resistant to cholesterol inhibition among all four nAchR subtypes.

Modulation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor function through the outer and middle rings of transmembrane domains.

A major challenge for the future is to elucidate the mechanism of propagation of information from the lipid-exposed TM rings to the rest of the receptor molecule.

Choline Modulation of the Aβ P1-40 Channel Reconstituted into a Model Lipid Membrane

Circular Dichroism (CD) spectroscopy shows that after 24 and 48 hours of incubation with AβP1-40, choline stabilizes the random coil conformation of the peptide, making it less prone to fibrillate, and these actions seem to be specific in that ACh is ineffective either in solution or on A βP 1-40 channel incorporated into PLMs.

Probing the Effects of Membrane Cholesterol in the Torpedo californica Acetylcholine Receptor and the Novel Lipid-exposed Mutation αC418W in XenopusOocytes*

The present data demonstrate that a single lipid-exposed position in the A ChR could alter the modulatory effect of cholesterol on AChR function.

Uncovering the lipidic basis for the preparation of functional nicotinic acetylcholine receptor detergent complexes for structural studies

This study compares the lipid composition, including individual phospholipid molecular species of solubilized nAChR detergent complexes with those of the bulk lipids from their source, Torpedo californica electric tissue, and found that upon incorporation into oocytes, FC12 produce significant functionality, whereas LFC14 and LFC16 nA ChR-DCs displayed an increased functionality as compared to the crude Tc membrane.

Unique Effects of Different Fatty Acid Species on the Physical Properties of the Torpedo Acetylcholine Receptor Membrane*

It is suggested that it is the direct action of FFA at the lipid-protein interface, displacing essential lipids from their sites rather than changes in bulk properties such as membrane fluidity that accounts for the effect of F FA on the acetylcholine receptor membrane.

Lipids modulate the conformational dynamics of a secondary multidrug transporter

The model emerging from the data suggests a direct interaction between lipid headgroups and a conserved motif of charged residues that control the conformational equilibrium through an interplay of electrostatic interactions within the protein.

Role of Cholesterol in Formation and Function of a Signaling Complex Involving αvβ3, Integrin-Associated Protein (Cd47), and Heterotrimeric G Proteins

Data demonstrate that cholesterol is an essential component of the αvβ3/IAP/G protein signaling complex, presumably acting through an effect on IAP conformation.

Role of Cholesterol in Formation and Function of a Signaling Complex Involving (cid:97) v (cid:98) 3, Integrin-associated Protein (CD47), and Heterotrimeric G Proteins

It is demonstrated that cholesterol is an essential component of the ( cid:97) v (cid:98) 3/ IAP/G protein signaling complex, presumably acting through an effect on IAP conformation.
