Abstract: We present a photoaffinity labeling study of the human Angiotensin II (AngII) type 1 receptor (hAT(1)) and a constitutively active mutant (CAM) N111G hAT(1) at multiple temperatures using a p-benzoyl-l-phenylalanine (Bpa) containing AngII analogue (125)I-[Sar(1), Bpa(8)] AngII and the Methionine Proximity Approach (MPA). By introducing Met residues, which react selectively with Bpa, by mutagenesis in hAT(1) and its CAM, we were able to identify the position of residues that surround the Bpa moiety in the recep…
