This hypothesis, however, ignores the possibility that polar and/or van der Waals interactions may compensate for the absence of aromatic residues in some p LGICs to enhance helix-helix associations.

The roles of polar and van der Waals interactions at the M4-M1/M3 interface in p LGIC folding and function have not been systematically characterized.

The injection of either wild type (WT) or mutant GLIC/ELIC c RNAs into Xenopus laevis oocytes typically led to robust agonist-induced currents across the plasma membrane (Fig.

2), although numerous GLIC mutants and one ELIC mutant did not express and/or function.

A water molecule in GLIC’s M4-M1/M3 interface is also shown (cyan).

One archetype, exemplified by GLIC, the glycine and GABA receptors and the glutamate activated chloride channel, has extensive aromatic contacts that govern M4-M1/M3 interactions and that are essential for expression and function.The other archetype, exemplified by ELIC and both the nicotinic acetylcholine and serotonin receptors, has relatively few aromatic contacts that are detrimental to function.These archetypes likely have evolved different mechanisms to balance the need for strong M4 “binding” to M1/M3 to promote folding/expression, and the need for weaker interactions that allow for greater conformational flexibility..Structural and sequence comparisons suggest that our functional data may reflect the existence of distinct archetypes for the TMDs of p LGICs.One archetype, exemplified by GLIC, the glycine (Gly R), the GABA receptor and the glutamate activated chloride channel (Glu Cl).
