The physical requirement for charge to balance across biological membranes means that transmembrane transport of each ionic species is inter-related, and manipulating solute flux through any one transporter will affect other transporters at the same membrane, often with unforeseen consequences. The OnGuard systems modelling platform has helped to resolve the mechanics of stomatal movements, uncovering previously unexpected behaviors of stomata. To date, however, the manual approach to exploring model parameter space has captured little formal information about the emergent connections between parameters that define the most interesting properties of the system as a whole...

AIMS: Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) redistributes blood flow from poorly ventilated to better aerated areas in the lung, thereby optimizing ventilation-perfusion ratio (V/Q). Pulmonary artery smooth muscle cell (PASMC) contraction in response to hypoxia is triggered by Ca2+ influx via transient receptor potential canonical 6 (TRPC6) cation channels that have translocated to caveolae in the plasma membrane. Since phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) was suggested to regulate TRPC6 in endothelial cells, we aimed to define its role in the hypoxic response of PASMCs and as a putative mediator of HPV...

The hominoid oncoprotein TBC1D3 enhances growth factor (GF) signaling and GF signaling, conversely, induces the ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of TBC1D3. However, little is known regarding the regulation of this degradation, and the role of TBC1D3 in the progression of tumors has also not been defined. In the present study, we demonstrated that calmodulin (CaM), a ubiquitous cellular calcium sensor, specifically interacted with TBC1D3 in a Ca2+-dependent manner and inhibited GF signaling-induced ubiquitination and degradation of the oncoprotein in both cytoplasm and nucleus of human breast cancer cells...

Ca2+ serves as a universal second messenger in eukaryotic signaling pathways, and the spatial and temporal patterns of Ca2+ concentration changes are determined by feedback and feed-forward regulation of the involved transport proteins. Cyclic nucleotide-gated channels (CNGCs) are Ca2+-permeable channels that interact with the ubiquitous Ca2+ sensor calmodulin (CaM). CNGCs interact with CaMs via diverse CaM-binding sites, including an IQ-motif, which has been identified in the C-termini of CNGC20 and CNGC12...

Dynamics in DNA to which water, counterions and DNA motions contribute is a topic of considerable interest as it is closely related to the efficiency of biological functions performed by it. Simulation studies and experiments suggest that counterion dynamics in DNA probed by a minor groove binder is similar for various monovalent counterions. As the influence of higher valent counterions, which are also present around DNA and known to bind more strongly to it compared to the monovalent ions, on the dynamics in DNA has not been studied so far, we investigate in this work the dynamics in presence of Mg2+ and Ca2+, chosen for their relative abundance in the cell, using 4', 6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI), a minor groove-binder, as fluorescence probe...

Biochemical and structural studies demonstrate that S100A1 is involved in a Ca2+-dependent interaction with the type-2α and type-2β regulatory subunits of PKA (RIIα and RIIβ) to activate holo-PKA. The interaction was specific for S100A1 since other calcium-binding proteins (i.e. S100B, calmodulin) had no effect. Likewise, a role for S100A1 in PKA-dependent signaling was established since PKA-dependent subcellular redistribution of HDAC4 was abolished in cells derived from S100A1 knockout mice. Thus, the Ca2+-dependent interaction between S100A1 and the type-2 regulatory subunits represents a novel mechanism that provides a link between Ca2+- and PKA-signaling, which is important for the regulation of gene expression in skeletal muscle via HDAC4 cytosolic-nuclear trafficking...

miRNAs are important regulators of localized mRNA translation in neuronal dendrites. The presence of RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) proteins in these compartments and the dynamic miRNA expression changes that occur in response to neuronal stimulation highlights their importance in synaptic plasticity. Previously we demonstrated a novel interaction between the major RISC component Argounaute-2 (Ago2) and the BAR-domain protein PICK1. PICK1 recruits Ago2 to recycling endosomes in dendrites, where it inhibits miRNA-mediated translational repression...

Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) relies on β-cell Ca2+ influx, which is modulated by the two-pore-domain K+ (K2P) channel, TALK-1. A gain-of-function polymorphism in KCNK16, the gene encoding TALK-1, increases risk for developing type-2 diabetes. While TALK-1 serves an important role in modulating GSIS, the regulatory mechanism(s) that control β-cell TALK-1 channels are unknown. Therefore, we employed a membrane-specific yeast two-hybrid (MYTH) assay to identify TALK-1-interacting proteins in human islets, which will assist in determining signaling modalities that modulate TALK-1 function...

Density functional theory calculations on metal ion-π interactions in cation-π complexes of diboryne and sandwiches of diboryne and benzene formed via metal ions were performed to understand the strength of interaction in these complexes. Results suggest that apart from the smaller metal ions (Li(+), Be(2+)), larger ions (Na(+), Mg(2+), Ca(2+), and Al(3+)) can also form cation-π complexes with B≡B triple bond and interaction energies of the complexes with larger metal ions (possessing same charges) are less than those obtained with smaller ions...

VE-PTP stabilizes endothelial adherens junctions (AJs) through constitutive dephosphorylation of VE-cadherin. Here we investigated the role of STIM1 activation of store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) in regulating adherens junction assembly. We observed that SOCE induced by STIM1 activated Pyk2 in human lung microvascular endothelial cells (ECs) and induced tyrosine phosphorylation of VE-PTP at Y1981. Pyk2-induced tyrosine phosphorylation of VE-PTP promoted Src binding to VE-PTP, Src activation, and subsequent VE-cadherin phosphorylation, and thereby increased the endothelial permeability response...

Pathologic electrical remodeling and attenuated cardiac contractility are featured characteristics of heart failure. Coinciding with these remodeling events is a loss of the K+ channel interacting protein, KChIP2. While, KChIP2 enhances the expression and stability of the Kv4 family of potassium channels, leading to a more pronounced transient outward K+ current, Ito,f, the guinea pig myocardium is unique in that Kv4 expression is absent, while KChIP2 expression is preserved, suggesting alternative consequences to KChIP2 loss...

We have studied the formation and functional properties of polyelectrolyte multilayers where calmodulin (CaM) is used as polyanion. CaM is known to populate distinct conformational states upon binding Ca2+ and small ligand molecules. Therefore, we have also probed the effects of Ca2+ ions and trifluoperazine (TFP) as ligand molecule on the interfacial structures. Multilayers with the maximum sequence PEI-(PSS-PAH)x-CaM-PAH-CaM-PAH have been deposited on silicon wafers and characterized by X-ray and neutron reflectometry...

Eggs of teleost fish, unlike those of many other animals, allow sperm entry only at a single site, a narrow canal in the egg's chorion called the micropyle. In some fish (e.g. flounder, herring and Alaska pollock), the micropyle is a narrow channel in the chorion, with or without a shallow depression around the outer opening of micropyle. In some other fish (e.g. salmon, pufferfish, cod and medaka), the micropyle is like a funnel with a conical opening. Eggs of all the above fish have a glycoprotein tightly bound to the chorion surface around the micropyle...

Calmodulin (CaM) is a Ca2+-binding messenger protein having four Ca2+-binding motifs named "EF-hand"; the EF-hand motifs undergo a conformation change induced by Ca2+-binding. In order to study how Ca2+-binding induces the conformation change of EF-hand motifs and which residues are involved in the reaction, two 1μ second long MD simulations were independently performed from the apo- and holo-CaM and their structures and interactions were compared. The Ca2+-binding weakens the helix-helix interaction in all EF-hand, however, the holo-CaM MD adopted the close-like form...

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) is a tightly controlled cytosolic enzyme situated at a crucial branch point of central plant metabolism. In developing castor oil seeds (COS) (Ricinus communis) a novel, allosterically-desensitized 910-kD Class-2 PEPC hetero-octameric complex arises from a tight interaction between 107-kD plant-type PEPC and 118-kD bacterial-type (BTPC) subunits. The native Ca2+-dependent protein kinase (CDPK) responsible for in vivo inhibitory phosphorylation of Class-2 PEPC's BTPC subunit's at Ser-451 was highly purified from COS and identified as RcCDPK1 (XP_002526815) by mass spectrometry...

Paper mulberry is a valuable woody species with a good chilling tolerance. In this study, phosphoproteomic analysis, physiological measurement, and mRNA quantification were employed to explore the molecular mechanism of chilling (4 °C) tolerance in paper mulberry. After chilling for 6 h, 427 significantly changed phosphoproteins were detected in paper mulberry seedlings without obvious physiological injury. When obvious physiological injury occurred after chilling for 48 h, a total of 611 phosphoproteins were found to be significantly changed at the phosphorylation level...

Excitation-contraction (EC) coupling in skeletal muscle requires a physical interaction between the voltage-gated calcium channel dihydropyridine receptor (DHPR) and the ryanodine receptor (RyR1) Ca2+ release channel. Although the exact molecular mechanism that initiates skeletal EC coupling is unresolved, it is clear that both the α1s and β subunits of DHPR are essential for this process. Here, we employed a series of techniques, including size-exclusion chromatography-multi-angle light scattering, differential scanning fluorimetry and isothermal calorimetry, to characterize various biophysical properties of the skeletal DHPR beta subunit β1a...

The Ca2+-binding protein, S100A6, belongs to the S100 family. Binding of Ca2+ induces a conformational change, which causes an increase in the overall S100A6 hydrophobicity and allows it to interact with many targets. S100A6 is expressed in different normal tissues and in many tumors. Up to now it has been shown that S100A6 is involved in cell proliferation, cytoskeletal dynamics and tumorigenesis, and that it might have some extracellular functions. In this review, we summarize novel discoveries concerning S100A6 targets, its involvement in cellular signaling pathways, and presence in stem/progenitor cells, extracellular matrix and body fluids of diseased patients...

Wolfram syndrome (WS) is progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by early-onset optic atrophy and diabetes mellitus, which can be associated with more extensive central nervous system and endocrine complications. The majority of patients harbour pathogenic WFS1 mutations, but recessive mutations in a second gene, CISD2, have been described in a small number of families with Wolfram syndrome type 2 (WFS2). The defining diagnostic criteria for WFS2 also consist of optic atrophy and diabetes mellitus, but unlike WFS1, this phenotypic subgroup has been associated with peptic ulcer disease and an increased bleeding tendency...

Water-soluble polymers as sacrificial supports for additive manufacturing (AM) facilitate complex features in printed objects. Few water-soluble polymers beyond poly(vinyl alcohol) enable material extrusion AM. In this work, charged poly(ether ester)s with tailored rheological and mechanical properties serve as novel materials for extrusion-based AM at low temperatures. Melt transesterification of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG, 8k) and dimethyl 5-sulfoisophthalate afforded poly(ether ester)s of sufficient molecular weight to impart mechanical integrity...
