ResumenGephyrin is a bifunctional modular protein that, in neurons, clusters glycine receptors and γ-aminobutyric acid, type A receptors in the postsynaptic membrane of inhibitory synapses. By x-ray crystallography and cross-linking, the N-terminal G-domain of gephyrin has been shown to form trimers and the C-terminal E-domain dimers, respectively. Gephyrin therefore has been proposed to form a hexagonal submembranous lattice onto which inhibitory receptors are anchored. Here, crystal structure-based substitutions at oligomerization interfaces revealed that both G-domain trimerization and E-domain dimerization are essential for the formation of higher order gephyrin oligomers and postsynaptic gephyrin clusters. Insertion of the alternatively spliced C5′ cassette into the G-domain inhibited clustering by interfering with trimerization, and mutation of the glycine receptor β-subunit binding region prevented the localization of the clusters at synaptic sites. Together our findings show that domain interactions mediate gephyrin scaffold formation. © 2007 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.
