Abstract

We investigated the role of Trp(134(3.28)), Ser(190(4.57)) and Tyr(356(7.43)) in agonist binding to, and activation of, the rat beta(1)-adrenergic receptor by comparing pK(i)s and functional responses of W134A, S190A and Y356F mutant receptors to wild type, all stably expressed in CHO cells. All three mutations significantly (P 0.4), suggesting that changes in pK(i) were not sufficient to explain the fall in adenylyl cyclase activity. The most pronounced reduction in affinity (126-fold, P < 0.01) was displayed by xamoterol for the Y356F mutation, suggesting that xamoterol is able to directly interact with Tyr(356(7.43)). For the other agonists, the change in pK(i) values for the mutant rece..
