Cím:Charged surface area of maurocalcine determines its interaction with the skeletal ryanodine receptor / Balazs Lukacs, Monika Sztretye, Janos Almassy, Sandor Sarkozi, Beatrix Dienes, Kamel Mabrouk, Cecilia Simut, Laszlo Szabo, Peter Szentesi, Michel De Waard, Michel Ronjat, Istvan Jona, Laszlo Csernoch
Megjegyzések:The 33 amino acid scorpion toxin maurocalcine (MCa) has been shown to modify the gating of the skeletal-type ryanodine receptor (RyR1). Here we explored the effects of MCa and its mutants ([Ala(8)]MCa, [Ala(19)]MCa, [Ala(20)]MCa, [Ala(22)]MCa, [Ala(23)]MCa, and [Ala(24)]MCa) on RyR1 incorporated into artificial lipid bilayers and on elementary calcium release events (ECRE) in rat and frog skeletal muscle fibers. The peptides induced long-lasting subconductance states (LLSS) on RyR1 that lasted for several seconds. However, their average length and frequency were decreased if the mutation was placed farther away in the 3D structure from the critical (24)Arg residue. The effect was strongly dependent on the direction of the current through the channel. If the direction was similar to that followed by calcium during release, the peptides were 8- to 10-fold less effective. In fibers long-lasting calcium release events were observed after the addition of the peptides. The average length of these events correlated well with the duration of LLSS. These data suggest that the effect of the peptide is governed by the large charged surface formed by residues Lys(20), Lys(22), Arg(23), Arg(24), and Lys(8). Our observations also indicate that the results from bilayer experiments mimic the in situ effects of MCa on RyR1.

Cím:Alterations in the calcium homeostasis of skeletal muscle from postmyocardial infarcted rats / Gyula Péter Szigeti, János Almássy, Mónika Sztretye, Beatrix Dienes, László Szabó, Péter Szentesi, Guy Vassort, Sándor Sárközi, László Csernoch, István Jóna
Megjegyzések:In chronic heart failure, skeletal muscles develop a weakness that is not associated to an impaired circulatory function but rather to alterations in the skeletal muscle fibers themselves. To understand these changes, the steps in excitation-contraction coupling of rats that underwent a left anterior coronary artery occlusion were studied. About 24 weeks after the myocardial infarction, neither the total amount nor the voltage dependence of intramembrane charge were altered. In contrast, calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum was considerably suppressed, and its voltage dependence shifted toward more positive voltages. Elementary calcium-release events showed altered morphology as the relative proportion of embers increased. Calcium sparks were smaller in amplitude and had larger time-to-peak values. Isolated ryanodine receptors (RyR) displayed an unusual rectification with increased single-channel conductance at positive (cis vs trans) voltages. In addition, the bell-shaped calcium dependence of channel activity was broader, with a slight shift of activation to lower and a larger shift in inactivation to higher calcium concentrations. These data indicate that the number of channels that open during a calcium-release event is decreased and that RyR function is altered; thus, calcium-release is suppressed after a myocardial infarction. These observations give an explanation for the impaired skeletal muscle function in these animals.
