Oxidation and Reduction of Pig Skeletal Muscle Ryanodine Receptors

Haarmann, Claudia; Fink, Rainer; Dulhunty, Angela


Time-dependent effects of cysteine modification were compared in skeletal ryanodine receptors (RyRs) from normal pigs and RyR(MH) (Arg615 to Cys615) from pigs susceptible to malignant hyperthermia, using the oxidizing reagents 4,4'-dithiodipyridine (4,4'-DTDP) and 5,5'-dithio-bis(2- nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) or the reducing agent dithiothreitol (DTT). Normal and RyR(MH) channels responded similarly to all reagents. DTNB (1 mM), either cytoplasmic (cis) or luminal (trans), or 1 mM 4,4'-DTDP...[Show more]
