Differential mechanisms of Cantú syndrome-associated gain of function mutations in the ABCC9 (SUR2) subunit of the KATP channel.

Cooper PE, Sala-Rabanal M, Lee SJ, Nichols CG - J. Gen. Physiol. (2015)

Bottom Line: For P429L and A475V mutants, sensitivity to ATP inhibition was comparable to WT channels, but activation by MgADP was significantly greater.C1039Y-dependent channels were significantly less sensitive to inhibition by ATP or by glibenclamide, but MgADP activation was comparable to WT.The results indicate that these three CS mutations all lead to overactive K(ATP) channels, but at least two mechanisms underlie the observed gain of function: decreased ATP inhibition and enhanced MgADP activation.

KATP conductance normalized in basal and stimulated conditions in heteromeric P429L-, A475V-, or C1039Y-based KATP channels. (A–D) The rate constants for nonspecific efflux (k1 represented by gray area) and KATP-dependent 86Rb+ efflux (k2), proportional to KATP-specific K+ conductance, were estimated from data shown in Fig. 7. Error bars represent mean ± SEM.

fig9: KATP conductance normalized in basal and stimulated conditions in heteromeric P429L-, A475V-, or C1039Y-based KATP channels. (A–D) The rate constants for nonspecific efflux (k1 represented by gray area) and KATP-dependent 86Rb+ efflux (k2), proportional to KATP-specific K+ conductance, were estimated from data shown in Fig. 7. Error bars represent mean ± SEM.

Mentions: All documented CS patients with mutations in ABCC9 are heterozygous. To mimic the predicted heteromeric composition of channels in such patients, we also expressed each mutation in a 1:1 ratio with SUR2A-WT plus Kir6.2, and assessed channel activity by 86Rb+ efflux assays (Figs. 8 and 9). In all conditions, P429L, A475V, and C1039Y heteromeric channels display no significant increases in the rate of 86Rb+ efflux compared with WT channels (Figs. 8 A and 9 A). When normalized to the maximal efflux rates, channels with heteromeric expression of C1039Y are still considerably less active than WT. In the heteromeric state, maximal C1039Y channel fluxes were markedly higher than in the homomeric state (Fig. 9 D), also implying a partial rescue of the surface expression of C1039Y subunits by WT subunits (Figs. 8, B–D, and 9, B–D).
