The central cavity of ABCB1 undergoes alternating access during ATP hydrolysis

van Wonderen, Jessica H.; McMahon, Roisin M.; O'Mara, Megan; McDevitt, Christopher A.; Thomson, Andrew J.; Kerr, Ian; MacMillan, Fraser; Callaghan, Richard


Understanding the process that underlies multidrug recognition and efflux by P-glycoprotein (ABCB1) remains a key biological challenge. Structural data have recently become available for the murine and Caenorhabditis elegans homologues of ABCB1; however all structures were obtained in the absence of nucleotide. A feature of these structures was the presence of a central cavity that is inaccessible from the extracellular face of the protein. To determine the conformational dynamics of this...[Show more]
