From: Distinct G protein-coupled receptor phosphorylation motifs modulate arrestin affinity and activation and global conformation

  1. The amino acid sequence of each peptide was identical (CDDEASTTVSKTETSQVAPA), and the peptides differed only regarding which serine and threonine residues were phosphorylated. The peptide sequence was derived from the bovine rhodopsin C-terminus with an N-terminal cysteine introduced to allow fluorescent labeling of the peptides. The fully phosphorylated C-terminus of V2 vasopressin receptor (V2Rpp, sequence indicated in black box) was included to have an additional reference in the trypsin digest assay and the fluorescence anisotropy experiments. For fluorescence anisotropy experiments, the V2Rpp was fluorescently labeled during the chemical synthesis at the N-terminus of the peptide
