Signaling modification as a specific consequence of SCTR-AVPR2 oligomerization.


<p>Percentage changes in maximum cellular cAMP levels when cells were expressing a combination of mSCTR and/or mAVPR constructs, comparing to cAMP responses in cells bearing only the native receptor to the ligand. A) SCT stimulated a marked shift in E<sub>max</sub> and potency in mSCTR in the presence of mAVPR2. No significant changes were observed when the non-interacting mAVPR1b replaced mAVPR2. B) Similarly, Vp stimulated a notable reduction in E<sub>max</sub> and potency in mAVPR2 in the presence of mSCTR. The data were mean±SEM from three to five independent experiments in triplicate. ***, P<0.001. **, P<0.01. *, P<0.05. 10pM to 1μM SCT (panel C) or Vp (panel D) were treated to cells with mSCTR and/or mAVPR2. Calcium response curves are presented as percentages of maximal changes in RFU of cells expressing mSCTR or mAVPR2 only and stimulated with 1μM peptide. Except for cells with mSCTR only, a marked increase in cellular calcium response can only be seen at 1μM peptide concentration. Data were obtained from three individual experiments with 5–6 ROIs per dose.</p
