GsαS is the short splice variant of the α-subunit of stimulatory heterotrimeric Gs-proteins. In contrast to the long splice variant (GsαL) GsαS lacks the 15-amino acid insert between the Ras like and the α-helical domain. GsαS activates adenylate cyclase (AC) and possesses a higher GDP-affinity than GsαL (cat.# PR-501). The differences in GDP-binding between GsαS and GsαL have important consequences for receptor/G-protein coupling and activation. In contrast to all other known Gα D/N mutants, the exchange of Asp280 to Asn280 in GsαS does not lead to an inactivation in nucleotide binding. Mutation of Gln212 to Leu212 inhibits the intrinsic GTPase activity, resulting in a constitutively activated GsαS. This mutation also increases the GDP-affinity of GsαS.
