We describe a protocol to identify the binding site(s) for a drug called ivacaftor that potentiates the CFTR chloride channel. We use photoaffinity probes-based on the structure of ivacaftor-to covalently modify the CFTR protein at the region that constitutes the drug binding site(s). We define the methods for photo-labeling CFTR, its membrane extraction, and enzymatic digestion using trypsin. We then describe the experimental methods to identify the modified peptides by using mass spectrometry. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Laselva et al.

Abstract

We describe a protocol to identify the binding site(s) for a drug called ivacaftor that potentiates the CFTR chloride channel. We use photoaffinity probes-based on the structure of ivacaftor-to covalently modify the CFTR protein at the region that constitutes the drug binding site(s). We define the methods for photo-labeling CFTR, its membrane extraction, and enzymatic digestion using trypsin. We then describe the experimental methods to identify the modified peptides by using mass spectrometry. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Laselva et al. (2021).
