Evolution of voltage-dependent anion channel function: From molecular sieve to governator to actuator of ferroptosis.
Objective: This proposal seeks to solve the high-resolution X-ray crystal structure of full-length Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR), an anion channel which regulates chloride ion concentration at the lumen-exposed surface of epithelial cells.
Some of the ion channels located on the outer and inner membrane include voltage dependent anion channel (VDAC), [Ca.sup.2+] uniporter, permeability transition pore (PTP), calcium-activated potassium channels ([formula not reproducible]), ATP-sensitive potassium channels ([K.sub.ATP]), and inner membrane anion channel (IMAC) [51].
In the case of Acid-sensing ASIC channels [22] and calcium-activated anion channel bestrophin, homology models combined with mutagenesis experiments were used to characterize the interactions with toxins in the former, and to evaluate how specific mutations affect its capacity to bind calcium ions [23] for the latter.
