In conclusion, the above results showed that the C-termini of 5 helices around residue 143 in the BGHs were near the Bak oligomerization interface. Likewise, even-numbered high order oligomers were formed in a p7/p15 Bid-dependent manner only in Bak 69C/111C/96C but not in Bak 96C (Fig. 2g; lanes 5 and 6, and lanes 1 and 2, respectively). The large distance between two 96C residues in a BGH ( 45 ?between C atoms) also precludes the possibility of disulfide bond formation within a BGH. Thus, these results indicated that residue 96C, i.e., the C-termini of 3 helices, were juxtaposed in the oligomeric Bak between neighboring BGHs. Finally, similar results were also observed in Bak 162C and Bak 69C/111C/162C (lanes 3, 4, 7 and 8), indicating that residue 162C, the penultimate C-terminal residue of helix 6, was also at the oligomerization interface in Bak pore, consistent with the formerly known `6:6 interface’23. Additionally, the monomers of Bak 86C were cross-linked upon activation by p7/p15 Bid, consistent with the proximity of the two symmetry-related 86C residues in the BGH structure (86C and 86C; 10 ?or 13 ?between C or C atoms, respectively) (Fig. 2h). This also indicated that the BGH structure was preserved in the Bak oligomeric pores in membrane. The above results collectively showed that, in addition to 6 helices, the C-termini of helices 3 and 5 were juxtaposed between BGHs in oligomeric Bak (Fig. 2a) in apoptotic mitochondria, thus demonstrating the existence of the `3/5 interface.’ This is consistent with our earlier in vitro results obtained with DM-3189 dose recombinant mutant Bak proteins in liposomes27. Using site-directed spin labeling (SDSL) method (Fig. 3a), the inter-spin distances in the range of 15-80 ?can be measured by the double electron electron resonance (DEER) method36. There would be multiple spin-spin interactions between BGHs as well as within a BGH if spin-labeled Bak monomers formed oligomeric Bak pores (Fig. 3b,c). This was indeed the case in the Bak oligomeric pores formed with Bak/84R1, a Bak monomer spin labeled at residue 84 (Fig. 3d,e; also see Supplementary Information Figure S2). Clearly, three well-resolved peaks were observed in the probability vs. distance function obtained from the X-band DEER data using DeerAnalysis2013 program37 (Fig. 3d). Due to the short phase memory time of the electronic spins of the nitroxide labels in X-band experiment, the evolution time was limited and thus the accuracy of the longer distance was compromised. The Q-band DEER was thus used to overcome this. As shown in Fig. 3e (left panel), the evolution.( ) Rfree ( ) Mean B (?) Root-mean-squared deviations Bonds (?
