In our case, receptor flexibility might influence the definition of the binding pocket, since it initially relies on the identification of residues in the two reference structures ( 1U19 and 2RH1 ) th... t present at least one atom situated at less than 6 Å of the ligand.

(a) The two known structures, PDB entries 1U19 and 2RH1 [ 62 , 63 ], were superimposed using the STAMP algorithm [ 64 ].

For the two ligands for which it was known, i.e. , retinal and 3-(isopropylamino)propan-2-ol from PDB entries 1U19 and 2RH1 respectively, we found that the predicted conformation, using the same method as for all other molecules, was very close to the experimental conformation, with RMSD values of less than 1 Å.

Template selection and homology modelling A profile hidden markov model (HMM) was used to align the 5025 GPCRs to the five template structures available at the time (before November 2010) (PDB codes: ... U19 , 2Z73 , 2VT4 , 2RH1 and 3EML ) [ 22 ].

In order to assess the impact of increased template similarity on the accuracy of the homology models we used different sets of templates for modelling, based on their sequence similarity across the entire serpentine domain: 1) Bovine rhodopsin (PDB: 1U19 ) and Japanese flying squid rhodopsin (PDB: 2Z73 2) 1U19, 2Z73 and human Adenosine receptor A2A (PDB: 3EML ) 3) 1U19, 2Z73, 3EML, common turkey Beta-1 adrenergic receptor (PDB; 2VT4 ) and human Beta-2 adrenergic receptor (PDB: 2RH1 ) In order to assess the impact of using multiple templates for building homology models compared to using the single most similar template, we also built a model for each of the two GPCRs using only the GPCR structure with the highest sequence similarity across the entire serpentine domain, which in both cases was: 4) 2VT4 5) Finally, we used I-TASSER [ 29 ], which was ranked 1 in the server category of the Critical Assessment of Structure Prediction (CASP) 2007-2009, to build a model of both drd3_human and cxcr4_human, excluding their respective crystal structures from template selection.

Unliganded Receptor An activation pathway from the inactive to the active B2AR crystal structures (PDB codes 2RH1 and 3P0G, respectively) was obtained by ABMD following the protocol described in the M... terials and Methods section.

Materials and Methods System and Simulation Setup A model of the B2AR ( Figure S1 was prepared starting from one of the available crystal structures of this receptor (PDB ID: 2RH1), removing the lysozyme insertion, and modeling the missing intracellular loop 3 (IL3) with the Rosetta ab-initio loop modeling protocol [25] .

The intracellular loop 2 (IL2), which is probably misfolded [26] , [27] in the inactive structure of the B2AR (2RH1), but in a helical conformation in the active nanobody-stabilized crystal (3P0G) of the receptor, was also replaced by the lowest-energy Rosetta model with a helical fold.

The outward movement is described by the difference in d TM6 values between any given conformation and the reference inactive crystal structure, i.e. by Δd TM6  = d TM6 –d TM6 (2RH1).

Ligand Docking Ligands for which an experimental crystal structure in complex with the B2AR is available, i.e. 2RH1 for carazolol [19] , 3NY8 for ICI- 118,551 [21] , and 3NYA for alprenolol [21] , were positioned in the binding pocket accordingly.

On the other hand, representative structures of the energy basin at s∼0.2 (data not shown) corresponded to conformations of the helix bundle very similar to the inactive crystal structure of B2AR (Cα RMSD from 2RH1 is ∼1.0 Å).

The reference states R j (1≤ j ≤ n ) were numbered assigning j = 1 to the cluster closer to the inactive state (Cα RMSD from 2RH1 ∼0.4 Å) and j = 10 to the one closer to the active state (Cα RMSD from 3P0G ∼0.3 Å).

A ) The pocket-like ligand binding region (inner crevice surface) of the human β2-adrenergic receptor (pdb entry code 2RH1) is surrounded by amino acids (lilac sticks, labeled) which are also known from mutagenesis studies to be important for ligand binding and signal transduction.

For modeling of the human TAARs 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, and 9 we used the inactive structural conformation of the β-2 adrenergic receptor (pdb entry 2RH1, [62] ), based on high sequence similarity between hTAAR1 and β-adrenergic receptor 2 (39% similarity, Blosum62 matrix).

All of the 200 residue 7TM bundles were superposed on that of the highest resolution inactivated form of β2-adrenergic receptor (PDB entry 2RH1) by a secondary structure matching (SSM) algorithm [12] implemented in Coot [13] , from which 10 representative chains are shown in Figure 1 .

As mentioned above, Rasmussen et al., 46 together with Cherezov, Rosenbaum, and co-workers, 16 solved the 3D structure of the human β 2 adrenergic receptor (adrb2; PDB codes: 2R4S and 2RH1).

11 , 14 The ionic lock is not, however, present in the inactive states of the recently solved β 1 and β 2 adrenergic receptor structures (adrb1 [PDB code: 2VT4], adrb2 [2RH1], respectively) or in the adenosine A 2A (ad2a [PDB code: 3EML]) receptor structure.

Therefore, in the present study we chose the adrb2 structure (2RH1) as the template in the homology modeling procedure; 2RH1 has a resolution of 2.4 Å, which is the highest resolution of all crystal structures of monoaminergic GPCRs obtained so far.

The main difference between the 2RH1 structure and the true receptor structure is that the third intracellular loop (IC3) had to be replaced with T4 lysozyme (T4L) in order to stabilize the receptor for crystallization.

The adjustments in the initial alignment were: Figure 2 The final sequence alignment of the human adrenergic β 2 receptor (adrb2, 2RH1) and the human dopamine D 2 receptor (drd2).

Molecules of fenoterol and its derivatives, in all possible stereochemical configurations (94 structures, Table  1 ) were docked to the receptor into two forms: (i) a high resolution structure... of carazolol-bound receptor (an inactive form of β 2 -AR, In_β 2 -AR, PDB: 2RH1) and (ii) a structure stabilized with Nb80 nanobody (an active form of β 2 -AR; Ac_β 2 -AR, PDB: 3P0G).

Molecular models of β 2 -AR have been developed by using the crystal structure of the human β 2 -AR T4 lysozyme fusion protein with bound ( S )-carazolol (PDB ID: 2RH1) and more recently reported structure of a nanobody-stabilized active state of the β 2 -AR with the bound full agonist BI-167107 (PDB ID: 3P0G).

The flexible, optimized ligands were docked into the binding pocket of two high resolution X-ray crystal structures of β 2 -AR (PDB IDs: 2RH1 and 3P0G).

At first, the human β 2 -AR was crystallized in complex with an inverse agonist, ( S )-carazolol (PDB ID: 2RH1) [ 8 ].

Two systems under consideration consisted of receptor protein, 125 POPC lipid molecules, 16271 water molecules (including 16 water molecules seen in the β 2 -AR crystal structure; PDB ID: 2RH1 in the case of In_β 2 -AR model) and two sodium ions.

Simulations were initiated from both an inactive (PDB 2RH1) ( 1 ) and active (PDB 3P0G) ( 2 ) crystal structure of β 2 AR.

Methods Simulation systems Membrane-aligned crystal structures for PDB IDs 2RH1 and 3P0G were extracted from the OPM database ( 29 ).

Residues in grey are the aligned inactive crystal (2RH1) conformations; residues in yellow are from the active crystal structure (3P0G).

We also dock to both the active (3P0G) and inactive (2RH1) crystal structures, and to 20 randomly selected snapshots from previously performed long-timescale agonist bound GPCR deactivation simulations( 5 ).

Figure 4 Examples of GPCR Ligand Chemotypes Enriched at MSM States Along Activation Pathways MSM states from high flux activation pathways were assigned a progress score ξ based on structural metrics in Figure 1 and range from the inactive crystal structure (2RH1) at ξ=0 to the active crystal structure (3P0G) at ξ=1.

These results are a statistically significant improvement over results from docking to the active (3P0G) and inactive (2RH1) crystal structures and to randomly selected snapshots from long-timescale, agonist bound β 2 AR deactivation simulations( 5 ).

The ligand position in the global minimum is very similar to that observed in the crystal structure of the carazolol–β 2 -AR complex (PDB: 2RH1); the average RMSD was 0.21 Å (Fig.

Methods Modeling of the ligand–receptor complexes β 2 -AR in its inactive and active states was modeled on the basis of the crystal structure of human β 2 –AR–T4 lysozyme fusion protein (PDB: 2RH1) (Cherezov et al.

The FEP profiles reported by González et al. ( 2011 ) were obtained on the basis of the crystal structure of β 2 -AR (PDB: 2RH1) which did not contain the uncrystallized region of the N-terminus which, according to our US simulations, can be of crucial importance in the initial stages of the ligand-binding process.

For fenoterol, the calculations were performed separately for the two conformational forms of β 2 -AR, i.e. the inverse agonist-bound (inactive form, PDB: 2RH1) and the agonist-bound (active form, PDB 3POG) to elucidate potential similarities and differences.

The two different conformational forms of β 2 -AR, i.e. active β 2 -AR–PDB: 3P0G and inactive β 2 -AR–PDB: 2RH1 were included in this stage of the study.

The initial position of the carazolol molecule corresponded to the crystal structure of β 2 -AR co-crystallized with carazolol (PDB: 2RH1).

One was co-crystalized in the complex with an inverse agonist, ( S )-carazolol (PDB: 2RH1) (Cherezov et al.

In addition, the positions of fenoterol in the global minima are very similar to the positions of the ligand co-crystallized with β 2 -AR (PDB: 2RH1 and 3P0G) (Fig.
