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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
