Abstract: A recombinant protein (Lbs-1) containing the N-terminal 581 amino acids of the mouse type 1 inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R-1), including the complete IP3-binding site, was expressed in the soluble fraction of E. coli. The characteristics of IP3 binding to this protein were similar as observed previously for the intact IP3R-1. Ca2+ dose-dependently inhibited IP3 binding to Lbs-1 with an IC50 of about 200 nM. This effect represented a decrease in the affinity of Lbs-1 for IP3, because the Kd increased from 115 +/- 15 nM in the absence to 196 +/- 18 nM in the presence of 5 microM Ca2+. The maximal effect of Ca2+ on Lbs-1 (5 microM Ca2+, 42.0 +/- 6.4% inhibition) was similar to the maximal inhibition observed for microsomes of insect Sf9 cells expressing full-length IP3R-1 (33.8 +/- 10.2%). Conceivably, the two contiguous Ca2+-binding sites (residues 304-450 of mouse IP3R-1) previously found by us (Sienaert, I., Missiaen, L., De Smedt, H., Parys, J.B., Sipma, H., and Casteels, R. (1997) J. Biol. Chem. 272, 25899-25906) mediate the effect of Ca2+ on IP3 binding to IP3R-1. Calmodulin also dose-dependently inhibited IP3 binding to Lbs-1 with an IC50 of about 3 microM. Maximal inhibition (10 microM calmodulin, 43.1 +/- 5.9%) was similar as observed for Sf9-IP3R-1 microsomes (35.8 +/- 8.7%). Inhibition by calmodulin occurred independently of Ca2+ and was additive to the inhibitory effect of 5 microM Ca2+ (together 74.5 +/- 5.1%). These results suggest that the N-terminal ligand-binding region of IP3R-1 contains a calmodulin-binding domain that binds calmodulin independently of Ca2+ and that mediates the inhibition of IP3 binding to IP3R-1.
