MMK1 Protein

A Potent and Selective Agonist of FPR2 G-Protein Coupled Receptors

  • E - MMK1 Protein PG10017
    MMK1 - Abgent MMK1 activates Ca2+ transients in HL-60 cells.Cells were loaded with Fluo-3 AM. Changes in intracellular Ca2+ were detected via changes in Fluo-3 emission following application (indicated by arrow) of 1µM MMK1(#PG10017), (green) compared to control (black, saline perfusion) and to the effect achieved after 30 minutes incubation with the specific FPR2 antagonist WRW4, (5 µM, blue).

Chemotactic factors from both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria are short peptides with N-formyl methionine at the N-terminus (extensively reviewed in reference 1). These peptides are released from bacteria during infection and activate formyl peptide receptor (FPR), a member of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). In human, the FPR family consists mainly of three receptors, FPR1, FPR2/ALX (formerly FPRL1), and FPR3 (formerly FPRL2) which all couple to the Gi subtype of G-proteins and ultimately lead to the activation of phospholipase C and intracellular Ca2+increase1,2.

MMK1 is a selective and potent agonist of the Formylpeptide receptor FPR23, which was originally derived from a random peptide library and was identified by a novel autocrine selection method in yeasts engineered to express human FPR24.

FPR2 is expressed in the promyelocytic leukemia cell line HL-60 as well as in the chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line K5625. In human neutrophils, 1 µM MMK1 induces Ca2+ influx which is blocked by the specific FPR2 antagonist WRW46.

Resveratrol, a constituent of grape seeds, induces Ca2+ influx in human monocytes which is blocked by10 µM MMK1, demonstrating that the inhibition of chemoattractant receptors contribute to the anti-inflammatory properties of resveratrol7.
