What are the two major classes of hormones?

Group 1 hormones (steroids, iodothyronines, calcitriol, retinoids) bind their receptor in the cytoplasm, form a dimer, move into the nucleus and bind DRE. Group 2 hormones (polypeptides, proteins, glycoproteins, catecholamines) start their signaling through membrane receptors.
DRE (DNA hormone responsive elements)


What are the second messengers for group 2 hormones following receptor activation.

1) – cAMP
2) - cGMP-atrial naturetic factor, nitric oxide
3) calcium or phosphatydlinositol or both
4)-kinase or phosphate cascade

How do interleukin receptors work?

The extracellular components are immunoglobulin like and the intracellular end shares a TIR motif.

TIR (Toll IL-1 Receptor)
TRAF1 (TNF receptor-associated factor 1)
IRAK1 (interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase 1)
AP-1 (activator protein 1), part of a heterodimeric protein which may include C-Fos, C Jun.


Are interleukin receptors specific for a single interleukin?

The same receptor responds to IL-1 and IL-18, another to either TLR5, TLR7, TLR9, and TLR11; separate ones for TLR2, TLR4, TLR3. Depending on the combination, NF-kB, AP1, IRF3, IRF7, may be generated.


How does the adiponectin receptor work?

This receptor is oriented with cytoplasmic N terminus, extracellular C terminus (opposite to G protein coupled receptors) and does not associate with G proteins. Activates AMPK and PPAR-a.
PPARa (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha)


Name some promiscuous ligands and receptors.

Promiscuous ligands include:
acetylcholine (nAChR-nicotinic-ligand gated ion channel, mAChR, muscarinic, G protein coupled receptor, alpha unit deactivates adenylate cyclase, decreasing cAMP ), adrenergic stimulation activates 2 alpha receptors, and 3 beta receptors (all GPCR), arginine vasopressin receptors-3,

What peptide chains constitute the receptors for IL-1,2, and 5?

Interleukins 1, 2, and 5 rely on CD coreceptors.
IL-1 uses CD121a (IL1R1) along with IL1RaP (IL-1 accessory Protein) transmits signal. CD121b (IL1R2) is a decoy receptor that binds IL-1 alpha and beta but no signal results.
IL-2 uses CD25 (IL-2Ralpha), CD122 (IL-2Rbeta), CD132 (IL2Rgamma), and beta subunit CD131 (CSF2RB).
IL-5 receptor is CD125 (IL5RA) and beta subunit CD131 .
These receptors transmit a signal due to ability to bind JAK kinase which is activated by receptor aggregation after ligand binding.

IL1RA is the product of the gene IL1RN and is a decoy ligand.
CD131 (CSF2RB, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor receptor, beta).


How are G protein coupled receptor classified?

GRAFS classification system for GPCR receptors is by ligand - Glutamate (22 genes), Rhodopsin like (662), Adhesion (33), Friizzled (11) / Taste2 (25), and Secretin (15).
Rhodopsin like receptors are a superfamily (evolutionarily linked but no longer share sequences) of 19 subtypes (639) + non catagorized types (23).


How are the main proteins responsible for signal transduction classified?

Cell signaling protein (types) are separated into Intercellular (4), cell surface(8), and intracellular (3). Calcium signaling, and lipid signaling involve all 3 varieties.

Intercellular-neuropeptides, growth factors, cytokines, hormones

cell surface protein receptors-ligand gated, enzyme linked, G protein coupled, immunoglobulin superfamily, integrens, neuropeptide, growth factor, cytokine

adapter proteins, GTP binding, map kinase,

calcium signaling-ion pumps, cell membrane calcium channels, adhesion molecules
lipid signaling - eicosanoids, lysophospholipids, steroids, others.


What are the main enzyme linked cell surface receptors?

Serine/threonine-specific protein kinase, receptor tyrosine kinase, guanylate cyclase


What are type I and type II cytokine receptors

Type I cytokine receptors respond to cytokines with four alpha helical strands. Receptors share common traducing chains namely:
1) gamma chain (CD130) IL-6 IL-11, IL-12, leukemia inhibitory factor, oncostatin M receptor.
2) common beta chain (CD131) GM-CSF receptor, IL-3, IL-5, and gp230
3) CD132; IL-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, IL-13, IL-15,
Upon ligation these chains result in JAK kinase phosphorylation and signal transduction.
Type II cytokine receptors bind type I and type II interferons as well as IL-10, IL-20, and IL-22. They have variable immunoglobulin extracellular components and intracellular proline rich region that attract different Jak kinases. JAK1 and TYK2 for type 1 cytokines, and JAK1 and JAK2 for type 2 cytokines (IFN gamma).

Lipid products that play a role in signaling will include

What proteins are involved in producing NF-kB1 by stimulating the IL-1 receptor?

IL-1 stimulates the transmembrane receptor IL-1R, which has many associated proteins including IL-RAcP, MyD88, IRAK and TRAF6. MyD88, IRAK and TRAF6 also associate with Toll like receptors. These complexes stimulate NIK which then phosphorylates IkB-alpha (inhibitor of kappa B) which is then ubiquinated and destroyed releasing bound p65 (RelA) and NF-kB1 (p50) which work as a heterodimeric transcription factor for inflammatory response (~150) genes.
IL-RAcP IL-1 receptor accessory protein
MyD88 myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88
IRAK IL-1 receptor-activated protein kinase
TRAF tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor
NIK NF Kappa B-inducing kinase, MAP3K14


How does TGFbeta become an active ligand?

TGFbeta is a member of a superfamily which includes inhibins, activin, anti-mullerian hormone, bone morphogenic protein, and decapentaplegic. It is expressed by 3 genes in many cells and exists on the surface in a complex that is released through plasmin activation. Further enzymatic action is necessary to cleave the complexed ligand which dimerizes producing a 25 kDa active ligand.


What is the role of PKC in GPCR activation?

PKC is a serine/threonine kinase in 15 isoforms in different tissues which is stimulated by DAG to phosphorylate multiple substrates which then lead to smooth muscle contraction or other downstream effects.
PKC is active much longer than GTP remains bound to Ga subunit of the homotrimeric G protein.

PKC- protein kinase C
DAG- diacylglycerol


How does the TGF beta receptor work?

TGF beta receptor 2 (gene TGFBR2) binds TGF dimer, attracts TGF beta receptor 1 (TGFBR1) which activates serine/threonine kinase to phosphorylate R-SMAD leading to transcription factor activity. Endoglin is transmembrane glycoprotein that binds to TGFBR1,2,and 3 but not the ligand, and modifies downstream effects.
TGF transforming growth factor beta
