Drives insertion of proteins into membrane- LTP
1 of 25
AMPA GluA2/3
mainly involved in internalisation (LTD)
2 of 25
NMDA receptor
activated by AMPA activity- triggers LTD/LTP
3 of 25
Receptor interacting proteins- LTD
PICK1, NSF, AP2, ABP/GRIP- bound by accessory proteins
4 of 25
Receptor interacting proteins- LTP
4.1N, SAP-97, Myo V
5 of 25
GFP transfection- see outline of cell, then stained with antibody shows AMPA as spots
6 of 25
Antibody-feeding assays
measure concentration of receptors on the membrane vs internalised receptors at a fixed time point
7 of 25
pHluorin-tagged receptor subunits
monitor endocytosis/excytosis in real time- using pH-sensitive GFP- high fluorescence at neutral pH- loss at acidic (in lumen)
8 of 25
= super ecliptic pHluorin
9 of 25
punctate regions
at the surface membrane- higher receptor density- less internalisation
10 of 25
diffuse regions
away from the membrane- lower receptor density- greater internalisation
11 of 25
stabilises proteins at the membrane and intracellular locations
12 of 25
binds to promote endocytosis (binds to same region as GRIP)
13 of 25
binds to GluA2- controls interaction with PICK-1
14 of 25
Co-immunoprecipitation (CO-IP)
show that 2 proteins interact in native tissues (eg PICK-1 and GluA2)
15 of 25
show that 2 proteins are in the same place in cells
16 of 25
proteins separated by gel according to molecular weight- acts as mesh filter
17 of 25
Sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS)
ionic detergent- coats protein in negative charge
18 of 25
Western blotting
transfer proteins to nicrocellulose membrane- by electric current
19 of 25
enzyme-tagged-antibody (eg for GluA2)
20 of 25
immunofuorescence colocalisation
2 proteins are tagged with different coloured secondaries- proteins overlap produce different colour
21 of 25
analyse function of an interacting protein
study trafficking or localisation of receptor by imaging/electrophysiology under various conditions; overexpressioon or "knock-down" by RNAi
22 of 25
engineered DNA into cells- virus, lipfection, Biolistics (gene-gun- gold bullets)
23 of 25
over expression of PICK-1 and GFP
loss of surface GluA2 in the presence of extra PICK-1/ no change in total GluA2
24 of 25
"knock-down" of interacting protein expression
RNA interference- siRNA/shRNA
