Serum levels of early-glycated albumin are significantly increased in patients with diabetes mellitus and may play a role in worsening inflammatory status and sustaining diabetes-related complications. To investigate possible pathological recognition involving early-glycated albumin and the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), an early-glycated human serum albumin (HSAgly), with a glycation pattern representative of the glycated HSA form abundant in diabetic patients, and the recombinant human RAGE ectodomain (VC1) were used. Biorecognition between the two interactants was investigated by combining surface plasmon resonance (SPR) analysis and affinity chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (affinity-MS) for peptide extraction and identification. SPR analysis proved early-glycated albumin could interact with the RAGE ectodomain with a steady-state affinity constant of 6.05 ± 0.96 × 10−7 M. Such interaction was shown to be specific, as confirmed by a displacement assay with chondroitin sulfate, a known RAGE binder. Affinity-MS studies were performed to map the surface area involved in the recognition. These studies highlighted that a region surrounding Lys525 and part of subdomain IA were involved in VC1 recognition. Finally, an in silico analysis highlighted (i) a key role for glycation at Lys525 (the most commonly glycated residue in HSA in diabetic patients) through a triggering mechanism similar to that previously observed for AGEs or advanced lipoxidation end products and (ii) a stabilizing role for subdomain IA. Albeit a moderate affinity for complex formation, the high plasma levels of early-glycated albumin and high percentage of glycation at Lys525 in diabetic patients make this interaction of possible pathological relevance.

Abstract

Serum levels of early-glycated albumin are significantly increased in patients with diabetes mellitus and may play a role in worsening inflammatory status and sustaining diabetes-related complications. To investigate possible pathological recognition involving early-glycated albumin and the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), an early-glycated human serum albumin (HSAgly), with a glycation pattern representative of the glycated HSA form abundant in diabetic patients, and the recombinant human RAGE ectodomain (VC1) were used. Biorecognition between the two interactants was investigated by combining surface plasmon resonance (SPR) analysis and affinity chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (affinity-MS) for peptide extraction and identification. SPR analysis proved early-glycated albumin could interact with the RAGE ectodomain with a steady-state affinity constant of 6.05 ± 0.96 × 10−7 M. Such interaction was shown to be specific, as confirmed by a displacement assay with chondroitin sulfate, a known RAGE binder. Affinity-MS studies were performed to map the surface area involved in the recognition. These studies highlighted that a region surrounding Lys525 and part of subdomain IA were involved in VC1 recognition. Finally, an in silico analysis highlighted (i) a key role for glycation at Lys525 (the most commonly glycated residue in HSA in diabetic patients) through a triggering mechanism similar to that previously observed for AGEs or advanced lipoxidation end products and (ii) a stabilizing role for subdomain IA. Albeit a moderate affinity for complex formation, the high plasma levels of early-glycated albumin and high percentage of glycation at Lys525 in diabetic patients make this interaction of possible pathological relevance.
