Conclusion from subconductance analysis

Conclusion from subconductance analysis.

From: Chapman et al., 1997, Biophys. J. 72: 708.

“Ions could be prevented from translocating in the ‘closed’ conformation because of an energy well that is too deep (i.e. a high-affinity binding site). A conformational change that reduces the depth of the well would enable the channel to support ion permeation. ... permeation and gating are coupled: the same structure that controls permeation is also responsible for opening and closing the channel.”

The selectivity filter is the gate

Mechanism: Affinity switching.

Closed state: traps K ions

Open state: release bound ions

Selectivity filter alters conformation

Top Ten Reasons for

Why the Selectivity Filter is the Gate

Reason # 10.

The KcsA structure with 2 K ions in the selectivity filter represents the closed conformation.

Doyle et al, 1998

Top Ten Reasons for

Why the Selectivity Filter is the Gate

Reason # 10.

The KcsA structure with 2 K ions in the selectivity filter represents the closed conformation.

The structure was obtained at a pH where the channel is closed (Clapham 1999, Cell 97: 547-550)

The KcsA structure with 2 K ions in the selectivity filter represents the closed conformation.

The structure was obtained at a pH where the channel is closed (Clapham 1999, Cell 97: 547-550)

The electrophysiological properties of the open KcsA channel are incompatible with the published crystal structure (Meuser et al., 1999, FEBS Letters 462: 447-452).

Reason # 9.

The selectivity filter has a different conformation in the open an closed state.

Top Ten Reasons for

Why the Selectivity Filter is the Gate

Reason # 9.

  • The selectivity filter has a different conformation in the open an closed state.

  • In the open state, single KcsA channels:

  • are poorly ion selective

  • permeate partially hydrated K ions

  • have a wider diameter than seen in the crystal structure.

  • (Meuser et al., 1999, FEBS Letters 462: 447).

Permeant ions bind with high affinity in the pore.

Reason # 8.

Permeant ions bind with high affinity in the pore.

This was first described for Ca2+ ions in Ca channels

Armstrong & Neyton, 1991, Ann. N.Y. Acad. Sci. 635:18-25;

Kuo & Hess, 1993, J. Physiol. 466: 657-682;

Permeant ions bind with high affinity in the pore.

K ions also bind with high affinity in the K channel pore:

mM K concentrations block Na conductance

Short closed times in single channel records result from K ions acting as pore blockers

Why the Selectivity Filter is the Gate

Reason # 7.

An alternative is needed for the cytoplasmic constriction acting as a gate, since it is not universally found.

An alternative is needed for the cytoplasmic constriction acting as a gate, since it is not universally found.

Inward rectifying K channels have a wide internal entrance (Lu et al., 1999, PNAS 96: 9926).

Inward rectifying K channels have a wide internal entrance (Lu et al., 1999, PNAS 96: 9926).

Glutamate receptors, which have an inverted topology, have a wide external vestibule

(Kuner et al., 1996, Neuron 17: 343).

Glutamate receptors, which have an inverted topology, have a wide external vestibule

(Kuner et al., 1996, Neuron 17: 343).

In CNG1, the cytoplasmic constriction does not prevent K ions from entering the vestibule.

Why the Selectivity Filter is the Gate

Reason # 6.

There is a strong coupling between sensor movement and the conformation of the selectivity filter.

The effect of mutations in S4 on activation properties depends critically on whether the selectivity filter contains a Val or Leu at position 76.

Open state stability is determined by the permeating ion species, linking gating to selectivity.

In the NMDA receptor, a conserved Asparagine residue critical for Ca permeability and Mg block, stabilizes subconductance levels.

Reason # 2.

  • The direction of the K flux determines:

  • the open state stability in drk1.

  • which (sub)conductance levels predominate in KcsA (Meuser et al., 1999, FEBS Lett. 462: 447).
