Reduction of this crosslink with DTT and its reoxidation by QPD also proceed nearly to the same extent in the presence of L157C (Fig. 6B, lanes 2 and 3) as in its absence (Fig. 6C, lanes 2 and 3). This last result argues against the possibility that the preference of W22C for W203C compared to L157C is due to this crosslinking taking place in the ER before b1 containing L157C associates with a containing W22C and W203C. The QPD result shows that W22C prefers W203C even on the cell surface in a complex with b1 L157C (Fig. 1C). It is possible that the juxtaposition of W22C and W203C is enhanced by the docking of b1 between S0 of one VSD and S1 and S2 of the adjacent VSD. After reduction of the W22C-W203C disulfide by DTT, its reoxidation by QPD is on average 26 greater in the presence of b1 than in its absence (Fig. 6C; P = 0.01). Consistent with b1 acting in part to stabilize a particular interaction of S0 with S4 is the result that the effect on V50 of crosslinking W22C and W203C is similar to the effect of incorporating b1 in the channel complex (Fig. 7A,B; Fig. S1). In the first case, the V50 of the channel formed by a W22C/W203C alone is shifted negatively about 20 mV (at 10 mM Ca2+), whereas b1 shifts t.R treatment with 10 mM DTT (pH 7.5) for 5 min, and after subsequent treatment with 40 mM QPD (pH 7.5) for 2 min.
