NMR Seminar: Adopting NMR spectroscopy to address the dynamic aspects of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) activation

MS Teams

Abstract X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM have established a detailed picture of the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) structural landscape – laying the foundation for understanding receptor activation in terms of the induced fit and conformational selection models of allostery. Yet, in many instances these conceptualizations remain unsatisfactory for explaining the molecular mechanisms of partial agonists, allosteric modulators and biased agonists. The dynamically-driven model of allostery posits that fluctuations about the mean conformation, which do not produce structural changes on a scale observable by cryo-EM and X-ray crystallography, are sufficient to lower the energy barrier between inactive and active modes. NMR can report on entropically-driven allosteric mechanisms; yet, technical challenges have largely limited its application to the super-microsecond motional regimes of GPCRs. Focusing on a thermostabilized peptide-binding GPCR, the neurotensin receptor 1 (NTS1), we employed NMR and density functional theory (DFT) to probe global sub-microsecond motions of 13Cε-methionines. Using this approach, we establish that the NTS1 solution ensemble includes substates with lifetimes on several discrete timescales. The longest-lived metastable states reflect those captured in agonist- and inverse agonist-bound crystal structures separated by large energy barriers. Individual methionine residues, some distributed up to 32 Å apart, also sense rapid motions superimposed within these

NMR Seminar: Probing Molecular Packing of Lipid Nanoparticles from 31P Solution and Solid-State NMR

MS Teams

Speaker: Ryan Schroder , Senior Scientist, Bristol Myers Squibb Date: Thursday May 23rd, 2024 Time: 12:00 pm ET via Microsoft Teams Abstract Lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) are intricate multicomponent systems widely recognized for their efficient delivery of oligonucleotide cargo to host cells. Gaining insights into the molecular properties of LNPs is crucial for their effective design and characterization. However, analysis of their internal structure at the molecular level presents a significant challenge. This study introduces31P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) methods to acquire structural and dynamic information about the phospholipid envelope of LNPs. Specifically, we demonstrate that the31P chemical shift anisotropy (CSA) parameters serve as a sensitive indicator of the molecular assembly of distearoylphosphatidylcholine (DSPC) lipids within the particles. An analytical protocol for measuring31P CSA is developed, which can be implemented using either solution NMR or solid-state NMR, offering wide accessibility and adaptability. The capability of this method is demonstrated using both model DSPC liposomes and real-world pharmaceutical LNP formulations. Furthermore, our method can be employed to investigate the impact of formulation processes and composition on the assembly of specifically LNP particles or, more generally, phospholipid-based delivery systems. This makes it an indispensable tool for evaluating critical pharmaceutical properties such as structural
