Although it has been suggested that the C-terminal tail of the β₁ₐ subunit of the skeletal dihyropyridine receptor (DHPR) may contribute to voltage-activated Ca²⁺ release in skeletal muscle by interacting with the skeletal ryanodine receptor (RyR1), a direct functional interaction between the two proteins has not been demonstrated previously. Such an interaction is reported here. A peptide with the sequence of the C-terminal 35 residues of β₁ₐ bound to RyR1 in affinity chromatography. The...[Show more]
