  • PubMed Abstract: 
  • Voltage-gated calcium channels (Ca(V)s) govern muscle contraction, hormone and neurotransmitter release, neuronal migration, activation of calcium-dependent signalling cascades, and synaptic input integration. An essential Ca(V) intracellular protein, the beta-subunit (Ca(V)beta), binds a conserved domain (the alpha-interaction domain, AID) between transmembrane domains I and II of the pore-forming alpha(1) subunit and profoundly affects multiple channel properties such as voltage-dependent activation, inactivation rates, G-protein modulation, drug sensitivity and cell surface expression ...

    Voltage-gated calcium channels (Ca(V)s) govern muscle contraction, hormone and neurotransmitter release, neuronal migration, activation of calcium-dependent signalling cascades, and synaptic input integration. An essential Ca(V) intracellular protein, the beta-subunit (Ca(V)beta), binds a conserved domain (the alpha-interaction domain, AID) between transmembrane domains I and II of the pore-forming alpha(1) subunit and profoundly affects multiple channel properties such as voltage-dependent activation, inactivation rates, G-protein modulation, drug sensitivity and cell surface expression. Here, we report the high-resolution crystal structures of the Ca(V)beta2a conserved core, alone and in complex with the AID. Previous work suggested that a conserved region, the beta-interaction domain (BID), formed the AID-binding site; however, this region is largely buried in the Ca(V)beta core and is unavailable for protein-protein interactions. The structure of the AID-Ca(V)beta2a complex shows instead that Ca(V)beta2a engages the AID through an extensive, conserved hydrophobic cleft (named the alpha-binding pocket, ABP). The ABP-AID interaction positions one end of the Ca(V)beta near the intracellular end of a pore-lining segment, called IS6, that has a critical role in Ca(V) inactivation. Together, these data suggest that Ca(V)betas influence Ca(V) gating by direct modulation of IS6 movement within the channel pore.
