1

Effectors of trimeric G proteins

enzymes

2

What do the effector enzymes of G proteins create

2nd messengers and ion channels

3

IP3

diffusible second messenger

4

IP3 function

controls calcium levels

5

Gqa receptors

a-adrenergic amines, Ach, various neurotransmitters

6

Gqa effectors

activate phospholipase Cb to produce IP3

7

What type of signalling is shared across many receptor families

signalling via lipid derived second messengers

8

Advantage of shared lipid signalling

cross talk and amplification

9

Lipid derived second messenger examples

PIP2, phosphatidylcholine, sphingomyelin

10

What targets membrane lipids

receptor regulated lipases

11

What are the two types of 2nd messengers derived from membrane lipids

i - water soluble, ii - hydrophobic molecules

12

Movement of water soluble lipid derived 2nd messengers

diffuse through the cytoplasm

13

Movement of hydrophobic lipid derived second messengers

remain in membrane

14

Function of lipid kinases

add phosphate groups to lipids

15

DAG

diacylglycerol

16

DAG structure

two fatty acid chains covalently bonded to a glycerol molecule through ester linkages

17

What is the more abundant lipid derived second messenger

Phosphatidylcholine

18

Example of hydrophobic 2nd messenger

DAG

19

Function of DAG

control signalling that occurs in PM

20

GPCR activation of PLC generates...

IP3 and DAG

21

What does specificity in signalling come from

selective expression and cellular localisation of signalling molecules

22

PH domain function

anchors parts of enzyme into PM

23

What is the PH domain important for

recognition

24

What is PKC regulated by

diaceylglycerol and calcium

25

Why is the location of a kinase important

it can only phosphorylate proteins near it

26

What are PKCs

ser/thr kinases

27

What is the PKC C1 domain activated by

DAG

28

What is the PKC C2 domain activated by

Ca2+

29

What is PMA

phorbol ester analogue of DAG

30

PMA function

activate PKCs
