ABSTRACT The subtype- and splice variant-specific modulation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (InsP3R) by interaction with cellular factors plays a fundamental role in defining the characteristics of Ca2+ release in individual cell types. In this study, we investigate the binding properties and functional consequences of the expression of a putative nucleotide binding fold (referred to as the ATPC site) unique to the S2- splice variant of the type-1 InsP3R (InsP3R-1), the predominant splice variant in peripheral tissue. A glutathione S-transferase fusion protein encompassing amino acids 1574-1765 of the S2- InsP3R-1 and including the glycine-rich motif Gly-Tyr-Gly-Glu-Lys-Gly bound ATP specifically as measured by fluorescent trinitrophenyl-ATP binding. This binding was completely abrogated by a point mutation (G1690A) in the nucleotide binding fold. The functional sensitivity of S2- InsP3R-1 constructs was evaluated in DT40-3KO-M3 cells, a null background for InsP3R, engineered to express muscarinic M3 receptors. The S2- InsP3R-1 containing the G1690A mutation was markedly less sensitive to agonist stimulation than wild type S2- InsP3R-1 or receptors containing a similar (Gly --> Ala) mutation in the established nucleotide binding sites in InsP3R-1 (the ATPA and ATPB sites). The ATP sensitivity of InsP3-induced Ca2+ release, however, was not altered by the G1690A mutation when measured in permeabilized DT40-3KO cells, suggesting a unique role for the ATPC site. Ca2+ release was dramatically potentiated following activation of cAMP-dependent protein kinase in DT40-3KO cells transiently expressing wild type S2- InsP3R or Gly --> Ala mutations in the ATPA and ATPB sites, but phosphorylation of the receptor and the potentiation of Ca2+ release were absent in cells expressing the G1690A mutation in S2- InsP3R. These data indicate that ATP binding specifically to the ATPC site in S2- InsP3R-1 controls the susceptibility of the receptor to protein kinase A-mediated phosphorylation, contributes to the functional sensitivity of the S2- InsP3R-1 and ultimately the sensitivity of cells to agonist stimulation.

    ABSTRACT: Vertebrate genomes code for three subtypes of Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptor (IP3R1, 2 and 3). Individual IP3R monomers are assembled to form homo- and heterotetrameric channels that mediate Ca2+ release from intracellular stores. IP3R subtypes are regulated differentially by IP3, Ca2+, ATP and various other cellular factors and events. IP3R subtypes are seldom expressed in isolation in individual cell types, and cells express different complements of IP3R subtypes. When multiple subtypes of IP3R are co-expressed, the subunit composition of channels cannot be specifically defined. Thus, how the subunit composition of heterotetrameric IP3R channels contributes to shaping the spatio-temporal properties of IP3-mediated Ca2+ signals has been difficult to evaluate. To address this question, we created concatenated IP3R linked by short flexible linkers. Dimeric constructs were expressed in DT40-3KO cells, an IP3R null cell line. The dimeric proteins were localized to membranes, ran as intact dimeric proteins on SDS-PAGE, and migrated as an ~1100 kDa band on blue native gels in an identical fashion to wild type IP3R. Importantly, IP3R channels formed from concatenated dimers were fully functional as indicated by agonist-induced Ca2+ release. Using single channel on-nucleus patch clamp, the channels assembled from homodimers were essentially indistinguishable from those formed by wild type receptor. However, the activity of channels formed from concatenated IP3R1 and IP3R2 heterodimers was dominated by IP3R2 in terms of the characteristics of regulation by ATP. These studies provide the first insight into the regulation of heterotetrameric IP3R of defined composition. Importantly, the results indicate that the properties of these channels are not simply a blend of those of the constituent IP3R monomers.

    ABSTRACT: Cell-death and -survival decisions are critically controlled by intracellular Ca2 + homeostasis and dynamics at the level of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptors (IP3Rs) play a pivotal role in these processes by mediating Ca2 + flux from the ER into the cytosol and mitochondria. Hence, it is clear that many pro-survival and pro-death signaling pathways and proteins affect Ca2 + signaling by directly targeting IP3R channels, which can happen in an IP3R-isoform-dependent manner. In this review, we will focus on how the different IP3R isoforms (IP3R1, IP3R2 and IP3R3) control cell death and survival. First, we will present an overview of the isoform-specific regulation of IP3Rs by cellular factors like IP3, Ca2 +, Ca2 +-binding proteins, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), thiol modification, phosphorylation and interacting proteins, and of IP3R-isoform specific expression patterns. Second, we will discuss the role of the ER as a Ca2 + store in cell death and survival and how IP3Rs and pro-survival/pro-death proteins can modulate the basal ER Ca2 + leak. Third, we will review the regulation of the Ca2 +-flux properties of the IP3R isoforms by the ER-resident and by the cytoplasmic proteins involved in cell death and survival as well as by redox regulation. Hence, we aim to highlight the specific roles of the various IP3R isoforms in cell-death and -survival signaling.

    ABSTRACT: The inositol trisphosphate receptor (IPR) is a crucial Ca$^{2+}$ channel that regulates the Ca$^{2+}$ influx from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the cytoplasm. A thorough study of this receptor contributes to a better understanding of calcium oscillations and waves. Based on the patch-clamp experimental data obtained from the outer membranes of isolated nuclei of the \emph{Xenopus} oocyte, we construct an allosteric competition model of single IPR channels on their native ER membrane environment. In our model, each IPR channel consists of four subunits, each of which can exist in two configurations. Each subunit in both configurations has one IP$_3$ binding site, together with one activating and one inhibitory Ca$^{2+}$ binding site. Based on the idea of the well-known Monod-Wyman-Changeux allosteric model, we construct our model from the subunit level to the channel level. It turns out that our model successfully reproduces the patch-clamp experimental data of the steady-state open probability, the mean close duration, and the bi-exponential distribution of the open duration. Particularly, our model successfully describes the bimodal [Ca$^{2+}$] dependence of the mean open duration at high [IP$_3$], a steady-state behavior which fails to be correctly described in previous IPR models, and the adaptation of the IPR channel, an important dynamic behavior which is seldom discussed in previous IPR models. In addition, we find that the gating of the IPR channel is most likely to be a biochemical process that consumes energy.
