  1. BIOL 200 (Section 921)Lecture # 6-7; June 26/27, 2006 UNIT 5: MEMBRANES • Reading: • ECB (2nd ed.)Chap 2, pp 70-74 (to review carbohydrate and lipid chemistry); Chap 11, pp 365 –386; Chap 12 pp. 389-410 (essential) 411-421 (optional), and related questions [11-9a,b,c,d,e,f, 11-10 to 11-14, 11-17, 11-18; 12-9abce; 12-11; 12-12; 12.13; 12-15; 12-18]

  2. MEMBRANES - LIPIDS, LIPID BILAYERS:OBJECTIVES • Explain the condensation reactions that occur to assemble lipids and to form glycolipids • Explain the connection between the fluid mosaic model and the evidence supporting it. • Recognize that models of membranes have to be revised constantly to account for new experimental data. • Understand the properties and general synthesis of phospholipids, glycolipids, cholesterol, and various glycosides in membrane structure • Understand the properties of integral and peripheral proteins in membrane structure

  3. MEMBRANE PROTEINS - OBJECTIVES • Explain the difference between peripheral and integral membrane proteins • Explain the forces that anchor proteins of each of these classes to membranes. • Explain how proteins can form 'aqueous pores' for transport of water, ions and other charged molecules. • Explain how membranes differ from bimolecular phospholipid leaflets. • Explain the evidence for fluid mobility of proteins within the plane of the membrane

  4. MEMBRANE FUNCTION -TRANSPORTES, CHANNELS AND MEMBRANE POTENTIALLEARNING OBJECTIVES • Each membrane has specific functions which are reflected in the functioning systems located in it. • To understand fundamental transport processes across membranes and the role of membrane proteins. • To understand the linkages between electrical forces, ATP hydrolysis and specific ion transport pumps. • To understand ion selectivity, gated channels and membrane potential. Nernst equation • To understand how a membrane potential is generated and propagated. • To understand the link between ion channels and nerve impulses. • Understand the control of directed secretion and its relation to nerve impulse transmission

  5. Functions of membranes[Becker et al. The World of the Cell Fig. 7-2]

  6. Biological membranes [Fig. 11-4]

  7. Fluid Mosaic Model of Biological Membranes [Becker Fig. 7-5]

  8. Key features of Fluid Mosaic Model Membrane lipids: • arranged in a bilayer • fluid (free to move in plane of bilayer) • asymmetrically arranged (different lipid components on one face of the bilayer than the other) Membrane proteins: • globular units with hydrophobic domains embedded in the hydrophobic core of the membrane, • "fluid", in the lipid bilayer, unless anchored by interactions with other proteins.

  9. [Becker et al. The World of the Cell]

  10. LIPID CHEMISTRY Read pp. 73-74 for a review of chemical structures and terminology of different lipid molecules

  11. Triacylglycerols form oil droplets Oil seed embyro

  12. Fat molecules are hydrophobic, whereas Phospholipids are amphipathic [Fig. 11-10] 11_10_Fat_phospholip.jpg

  13. Membrane lipids have both polar and non-polar regions (amphipathic) [Fig. 11-7] 11_07_amphipathic.jpg

  14. Phosphatidylcholine is the most common phospholipid in cell membranes [Fig. 11-6] 11_06_Phosphatidylch.jpg

  15. Sphingolipids: serine backbone, 2 acyl tails (Often glycolipids)

  16. [Becker et al. The World of the Cell]

  17. Fig. 11-8: hydrophilic, water forms H-bonds with atom carrying uneven charge distribution Fig. 11-9: hydrophobic, water doesn’t interact with solute; forms cage-like structures

  18. Amphipathic phospholipids form a bilayer in water. What interactions stabilize the bilayer structure?

  19. Three characteristics of membrane lipids • Fluidity • Asymmetry • Permeability

  20. Membrane lipid fluidity • The ease with which the lipid molecules move in the plane of the bilayer • Depends on temperature and the phospholipid composition [higher the temperature, lipids with longer tails and fewer double bonds are synthesized in temp.- adapting bacteria/yeast] • Depends on the length and unsaturation of fatty acids • Shorter hydrocarbon tails = increased fluidity • Increased unsaturation (# double bonds) = increased fluidity

  21. Movement of phospholipid molecules within Membranes [Becker Fig. 7-5]

  22. The effect of chain length and the number of double bonds on the melting point of fatty acids [Becker et al. Fig. 7-13]

  23. What is the role of cholesterol in animal cell membrane fluidity? 11_16_Cholesterol.jpg

  24. Membrane flexibility (fluidity) can be studied by either phospholipid vesicles or a synthetic phospholipid bilayers

  25. 11_36_Photobleaching_techniques.jpg FRAP – fluorescence recovery after photobleaching Membrane Fluidity: Experimental evidence

  26. Below are results from two FRAP experiments. What can you conclude about the membrane in cell 2 compared to cell 1? What characteristics would you predict that cell 2’s membrane lipids would have? Cell 1 Cell 2

  27. Lipid asymmetry– The two halves of the bilayer are different. Membranes have a distinct lipid profile in inside and outside layers of bilayer [Fig. 11-17] extracellular space sphingomyelin glycolipid PC cholesterol PS PI PE cytosol

  28. How is lipid asymmetry created? • All membrane lipids are made in the SER. • Enzymes in the SER join fatty acids and glycerol and phosphate and head groups to make phospholipids • The phospholipid is inserted into one of the monolayers • Enzymes called FLIPPASES flip some of these lipids into the other bilayer, so that the whole membrane will grow. They only transfer specific lipids. • Glycolipids get their sugar groups in the Golgi only on the non-cytosolic monolayer of the membrane. It then travels as a vesicle and fuses with the plasma membrane, where it maintains the orientation of glycolipids in the non-cytosolic monolayer [see Fig. 11-15]. • It makes the membrane asymmetrical.

  29. Phospholipids moved between leaflets by translocator proteins ATP ER Both sides enlarged New phospholipids added to cytoplasmic leaflet Phospholipid translocator Membrane protein

  30. Different organelles have different lipid compositions

  31. Relative permeability of lipid bilayer [Fig. 12-2] • Cell membrane acts as barriers • Rate of crossing the membrane varies with the size and the solubility of the molecule • Small, hydrophobic molecules cross the membrane most rapidly • Other moleules require special transport proteins • Synthetic bilayers have been used to study permeability

  32. Functions of membrane proteins [Fig. 11-20] Structural linkers e.g integrin e.g. Na+ pump receptors

  33. Membrane proteins associate with the lipid bilayer in several different ways [Fig. 11-21] 11_21_proteins.associ.jpg

  34. Fig. 11-23: a-helix spans the bilayer (why?) H-bonded polypeptide chain inside, Hydrophobic R-groups outside.

  35. Five transmembrane  helices form a water channel across the lipid bilayer. Where are the hydrophillic and hydrobobic aa sidechains? 11_24_hydrophl.pore.jpg

  36. Bacteriorhodopsin acts as a proton pump. Two polar aa side chains are Involved in proton transfer process. 11_28_Bacteriorhodop.jpg

  43. Figure 11-34 (p.383) Can plasma membrane proteins move? CELL FUSION EXPT. - Surface proteins of cultured cells are labeled with antibodies coupled to fluorescent dyes (red and green). - The "red" and "green" cells are then mixed and can fuse. - In time, labeled proteins from each cell mix showing membrane fluidity

  44. What restricts lateral mobility of plasma membrane proteins? Extracellular matrix Cell cortex Intercellular protein-protein interactions Diffusion barriers
