Sample text

However, the extracellular loops (ECLs) are distinctly structured. In the case of rhodopsin, the N-terminus as well as ECL2 form a lid-like structure that occludes the retinal binding pocket. This structure was not found in bAR and may explain how diffusible ligands gain access to the binding pocket in the b2AR and other GPCRs. In both the b-adrenergic and adenosine A2A-receptors the extracellular domain is highly constrained and held away from the ligand-binding pocket opening. The adenosine receptor ligand ZM241385 forms mainly polar interactions between a primary amine group and an asparagine residue on TM VI and a glutamate on 26 Glazkova et al.

2011). How these receptors are trafficked to distinct endomembrane compartments is not well understood and could either be a result of receptor internalization from the cell surface or via de novo delivery from the biosynthetic pathway. The possibility that there may be two distinct orientations for nuclear GPCRs, that is, either capable of delivering signals toward the cytosol or the nucleoplasm, is something that can only be explored in an intact cell context. 36 [(Figure_3)TD$IG] 2.

If receptors form as homodimers or even homotetramers in a square array, the possibilities for asymmetric arrangements are still limited (Fig. 2A). However, in a rhomboid-shaped homotetramer, asymmetries can be introduced with respect to how the entire receptor, G protein, effector complex is arranged (Fig. 2A, right). In a heterodimer, there is already a component of asymmetry added (Fig. 2B, left).
