Title: Characterization of mammalian glucose transport proteins using photoaffinity labeling techniques

Abstract

A carrier-free radioiodinated phenylazide derivative of forskolin, 3-iodo-4-azidophenethylamido-7-O-succinyl-deacetyl-forskolin (({sup 125}I)IAPS-forskolin), has been shown to be a highly selective photoaffinity probe for the human erythrocyte glucose transported and the glucose transport proteins found in several mammalian tissues and cultured cells where the glucose transport protein is present at a low concentration. The photoincorporation of ({sup 125}I)IAPS-forskolin into these glucose transporters was blocked by D- (but not L-) glucose, cytochalasin B, and forskolin. In addition to labeling the mammalian glucose transport proteins, ({sup 125}I)IAPS-forskolin also labeled the L-arabinose transporter from E. coli. In muscle and adipose tissues, glucose transport is markedly increased in response to insulin. ({sup 125}I)IAPS-forskolin was shown to selectivity tag the glucose transporter in membranes derived from these cells. In addition, the covalent derivatization of the transport protein in subcellular fractions of the adipocyte has provided a means to study the hormonal regulation of glucose transport. ({sup 125}I)IAPS-forskolin has also been used to label the purified human erythrocyte glucose transporter. The site of insertion has therefore been localized by analysis of the radiolabeled peptides which were produced following chemical and proteolytic digestion of the labeled transport protein.

  • Newly formed pre-messenger RNA associates with protein to form heterogeneous ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP) particles. In HeLa cells, hnRNP particles contain six core proteins. Two proteins, termed C{sub 1} and C{sub 2}, are phosphorylated in vitro by casein kinase 11 (CKII). C{sub 1} protein became {sup 32}P-labeled after HeLa cells were incubated with ({sup 32}P)-orthophosphate in vivo (ibid). Because phosphorylation is a ubiquitous regulatory mechanism, C protein phosphorylation was studied in greater detail. C protein phosphorylation in hnRNP particles was investigated in HeLa cells incubated with ({sup 32}P)-orthophosphate in vivo. Immunoblotting in pH 3.5-10 isoelectric focusing (IEF) gels indicated that C proteinsmore » focus only at pH 5.0. In pH 4.5-5.5 IEF gels, individually purified C, and 2 proteins resolve into the same four closely spaced, {sup 32}P-labeled bands. A fifth, unlabeled, more basic species was detached when hnRNP particles were purified without NaF. All {sup 32}P-labeled species contained identical amounts of {sup 32}P per unit protein suggesting that charge heterogeneity is not due to differential phosphorylation. Attempts to detect bound carbohydrate were unsuccessful. {sup 32}P-labeled phosphate was readily removed by potato acid phosphatase. E. coli alkaline phosphatase and snake venom phosphodiesterase were ineffective. {sup 32}P-label was found exclusively in phosphoserine. One-dimensional peptide mapping with chymotrypsin and S. aureus protease detected two phosphorylated peptides. C protein phosphorylation was also investigated in vitro. Incubation of hnRNP particles with rabbit liver CKII and {sup 32}P-ATP followed by IEF in pH 4.5-5.5 gels indicated that all four C protein species were {sup 32}P-labeled. {sup 32}P-label was found exclusively in phosphoserine.« less
  • Capillary gas chromatography was applied to study the structural features of coals of different rank. Coal samples were first extracted with pyridine, and the coal extracts were fractionated based on chemical class and the number of aromatic rings. A number of compounds were identified for the first time. Structural differences as a function of coal rank were observed for the low-molecular-weight aliphatic, neutral polycyclic aromatic, sulfur-containing polycyclic aromatic, and nitrogen-containing polycyclic aromatic compounds. The nonextractable residues of different rank coals were subjected to solvated electron reduction. A total of 61 wt% solubility was obtained for a low rank North Dakotamore » lignite. Cleavage of weak linkages and distortion of hydrogen bonds were the main reactions involved in this reduction, which resulted in high solubility for the low rank coal. Chemically bonded long chain n-alkanes were identified in the North Dakota lignite from its reduced products.« less
  • Proton Induced X-ray Emission (PIXE) and other techniques have been used for chemical characterization of air pollutants in the ambient environment and in coal-fired power plant stack emissions. A microwave digestion procedure was developed to extract filter samples collected in the plumes from destruction of propellants and explosives by Open-Burning and Open-Detonation (OBOD). Air pollutants introduced by open-burning of propellants were revealed. From the study of atmospheric data collected during the winter of 1989-1990 in Utah Valley, an understanding was gained about factors affecting concentrations of pollutants in Utah Valley and contributions of various sources to the major gaseous andmore » fine particulate species. A new sampling system, PIXE and GFAAS were used, and new techniques were developed for determining concentrations of gas-phase endemic tracers and elements emitted from coal-fired power plants in projects PP L and MOHAVE. The PIXE results were compared with EPA's XRF data and particle-size corrections for PIXE data were also discussed.« less
  • The {beta}-adrenergic receptor is an integral membrane protein coupled to adenylate cyclase by the guanine nucleotide binding protein, Gs. Agonist binding to the receptor results in coupling the receptor to Gs, increased adenylate cyclase activity, and receptor desensitization. In contrast, antagonists bind but do not activate the receptor or result in desensitization. To study the structure and regulation of the {beta}-adrenergic receptor in the membrane, it is useful to develop ligands which covalently label the binding site. In this thesis the synthesis and characterization of the first agonist photolabel for the {beta}-adrenergic receptor is presented. The agonist photoaffinity label, N-(p-azido-m-iodophenethylamidoisobutyl)-norepinephrinemore » (NAIN), was synthesized in non-radioactive and radioactive carrier-free forms with {sup 125}I (2,200 Ci/mmole). NAIN was chemically characterized by TLC mobility, melting point, NMR, IR, and Mass Spectroscopy. NAIN was shown to be competitive with the {beta}-adrenergic ligand ({sup 125}I)-ICYP in several membranes containing {beta}-adrenergic receptors. Binding data indicated that NAIN coupled the receptor to Gs and had an affinity for the receptor which was similar to isoproterenol. NAIN stimulated adenylate cyclase activity in guinea pig lung and S49 WT mouse lymphoma cell membranes with a K{sub act} and V max similar to isoproterenol while in frog erythrocyte ghosts, NAIN produced 77% of the maximally stimulated adenylate cyclase activity of isoproterenol. These data show that NAIN is an agonist for the {beta}-adrenergic receptor.« less
  • Photoaffinity labeling of rhodopsin was carried out to identify the amino acids in the binding sites of the retinal and thereby arrive at a possible helical arrangement of the protein. A retinal analog, with a radioactive photolabel (diazoacetate) at position 3 was used for these studies. {sup 14}C label 3S-diazoacetoxy-9-cis-retinal bound to bovine opsin and regenerated a chromophore with {lambda}{sub max} at 465 nm. Photolysis of the complex at 254 nm resulted in covalent crosslinking of the retinal analog to the protein in 18-20% yield. Proteolytic cleavage (V8 protease) of the crosslinked protein and determination of the distribution of radioactivitymore » indicated that both fragments V8-L (Met{sub 1}-Glu{sub 239}) and V8-S (Ser{sub 240}-Clu{sub 341}) were labeled. Further cleavage of labeled V8-S with CNBr (in HCOOH) showed that the major crosslinking sites were contained in a 51 residue peptide in helix 6, CNBr c+d (Val{sub 258}-Met{sub 308}). An attempt was made to construct a chemical model for bathorhodopsin, the primary photochemical intermediate in the bleaching sequence of rhodopsin.« less
