Structural basis for the selectivity of the RGS protein, GAIP, for Galphai family members. Identification of a single amino acid determinant for selective interaction of Galphai subunits with GAIP.


GAIP is a regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) that accelerates the rate of GTP hydrolysis by some G protein alpha subunits. In the present studies, we have examined the structural basis for the ability of GAIP to discriminate among members of the Galphai family. Galphai1, Galphai3, and Galphao interacted strongly with GAIP, whereas Galphai2 interacted… (More)
