Guanylate cyclase activator 1B

GCAP2, GUCA1B
The protein encoded by this gene is a calcium-binding protein that activates photoreceptor guanylate cyclases. This gene may have arisen due to a gene duplication event since there is a highly similar gene clustered with it on chromosome 6. Mutations in this gene can cause a form of retinitis pigmentosa.

Interleukin-11 binds specific EF-hand proteins via their conserved structural motifs.
New
Permyakov et al., Moscow, Russia. In J Biomol Struct Dyn, Feb 2016
Here we probed specificity of IL-11 to calcium-binding proteins of various types: calcium sensors of the EF-hand family (calmodulin, S100B and neuronal calcium sensors: recoverin, NCS-1, GCAP-1, GCAP-2), calcium buffers of the EF-hand family (S100G, oncomodulin), and a non-EF-hand calcium buffer (α-lactalbumin).

New
Koch et al., Oldenburg, Germany. In Acs Chem Biol, Nov 2015
We conclude that GCAP1 and its cellular cognate GCAP2 operate by distinctly different switching mechanisms despite their high structural homology.
A novel Ca2+-feedback mechanism extends the operating range of mammalian rods to brighter light.
New
Koskelainen et al., Saint Louis, United States. In J Gen Physiol, Oct 2015
Calcium ions (Ca2+) play a major role in mediating the rapid, subsecond adaptation to light, and the Ca2+-binding proteins GCAP1 and GCAP2 (or guanylyl cyclase-activating proteins [GCAPs]) have been identified as important mediators of the photoreceptor response to changes in intracellular Ca2+.

New
Koch et al., Moscow, Russia. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Oct 2015
Here, we investigated the role of the C-terminal segment in guanylate cyclase activating protein-2, GCAP2, an NCS protein controlling the Ca2+-dependent regulation of photoreceptor guanylate cyclases.
Structural effects of Mg²⁺ on the regulatory states of three neuronal calcium sensors operating in vertebrate phototransduction.

New
Dizhoor et al., United States. In J Biol Chem, Sep 2015
Either positively or negatively charged residues in that position completely blocked GCAP1 and GCAP2 but not RD3 binding similarly to the disease-causing mutation in the neighboring Arg(822).
Mef2d is essential for the maturation and integrity of retinal photoreceptor and bipolar cells.
New
Furukawa et al., Suita, Japan. In Genes Cells, May 2015
Expression profiling by microarray analysis showed that Mef2d is required for the expression of various genes in photoreceptor and bipolar cells, including cone arrestin, Guca1b, Pde6h and Cacna1s, which encode outer segment and synapse proteins.
Bicarbonate Modulates Photoreceptor Guanylate Cyclase (ROS-GC) Catalytic Activity.
New
Makino et al., Boston, United States. In J Biol Chem, May 2015
The effect required neither Ca(2+) nor use of the GCAPs domains; however, stimulation of ROS-GC1 was more powerful in the presence of GCAP1 or GCAP2 at low [Ca(2+)].
Evaluating the role of retinal membrane guanylyl cyclase 1 (RetGC1) domains in binding guanylyl cyclase-activating proteins (GCAPs).
New
Dizhoor et al., United States. In J Biol Chem, Apr 2015
We evaluated the principal models of how GCAP1 and GCAP2 bind RetGC1: through a shared docking interface versus independent binding sites formed by distant portions of the cyclase intracellular domain.
Gene profiling of postnatal Mfrprd6 mutant eyes reveals differential accumulation of Prss56, visual cycle and phototransduction mRNAs.
Nishina et al., Bar Harbor, United States. In Plos One, 2013
In Mfrprd6 eyes, a significant 1.5- to 2.0-fold decrease was observed among transcripts of genes linked to retinal degeneration, including those involved in visual cycle (Rpe65, Lrat, Rgr), phototransduction (Pde6a, Guca1b, Rgs9), and photoreceptor disc morphogenesis (Rpgrip1 and Fscn2).
Insights gained from gene therapy in animal models of retGC1 deficiency.
Review
Boye, Gainesville, United States. In Front Mol Neurosci, 2013

Review
Ames et al., Davis, United States. In Front Mol Neurosci, 2013
Retinal recoverin controls Ca(2) (+)-dependent inactivation of light-excited rhodopsin during phototransduction, guanylyl cyclase activating proteins 1 and 2 (GCAP1 and GCAP2) promote Ca(2) (+)-dependent activation of retinal guanylyl cyclases, and neuronal frequenin (NCS-1) modulates synaptic activity and neuronal secretion.

Review
Schmitz, Homburg, Germany. In Front Mol Neurosci, 2013
