BACKGROUND: Membrane proteins form key nodes in mediating the cell's interaction with the surroundings, which is one of the main reasons why the majority of drug targets are membrane proteins. RESULTS: Here we mined the human proteome and identified the membrane proteome subset using three prediction tools for alpha-helices: Phobius, TMHMM, and SOSUI. This dataset was reduced to a non-redundant set by aligning it to the human genome and then clustered with our own interactive implementation of the ISODATA algorithm. The genes were classified and each protein group was manually curated, virtually evaluating each sequence of the clusters, applying systematic comparisons with a range of databases and other resources. We identified 6,718 human membrane proteins and classified the majority of them into 234 families of which 151 belong to the three major functional groups: receptors (63 groups, 1,352 members), transporters (89 groups, 817 members) or enzymes (7 groups, 533 members). Also, 74 miscellaneous groups with 697 members were determined. Interestingly, we find that 41% of the membrane proteins are singlets with no apparent affiliation or identity to any human protein family. Our results identify major differences between the human membrane proteome and the ones in unicellular organisms and we also show a strong bias towards certain membrane topologies for different functional classes: 77% of all transporters have more than six helices while 60% of proteins with an enzymatic function and 88% receptors, that are not GPCRs, have only one single membrane spanning alpha-helix. Further, we have identified and characterized new gene families and novel members of existing families. CONCLUSION: Here we present the most detailed roadmap of gene numbers and families to our knowledge, which is an important step towards an overall classification of the entire human proteome. We estimate that 27% of the total human proteome are alpha-helical transmembrane proteins and provide an extended classification together with in-depth investigations of the membrane proteome's functional, structural, and evolutionary features.

Abstract [en]

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are one of the largest protein families in mammals. GPCRs are instrumental for hormonal and neurotransmitter signalling and are important in all major physiological systems of the body. Paper I describes the repertoire of GPCRs in Branchiostoma floridae, which is one of the species most closely related species to vertebrates. Mining and phylogenetic analysis of the amphioxus genome showed the presence of at least 664 distinct GPCRs distributed among all the main families of GPCRs; Glutamate (18), Rhodopsin (570), Adhesion (37), Frizzled (6) and Secretin (16). Paper II contains studies of the Adhesion, Methuselah and Secretin GPCR families in nine genomes. The Adhesion GPCRs are the most complex gene family among GPCRs with large genomic size, multiple introns and a fascinating flora of functional domains. Phylogenetic analysis showed Adhesion group V (that contains GPR133 and GPR144) to be the closest relative to the Secretin family among the groups in the Adhesion family, which was also supported by splice site setup and conserved motifs. Paper III examines the repertoire of human transmembrane proteins. These form key nodes in mediating the cell’s interaction with the surroundings, which is one of the main reasons why the majority of drug targets are membrane proteins. We identified 6,718 human membrane proteins and classified the majority of them into 234 families of which 151 belong to the three major functional groups; Receptors (63 groups, 1,352 members), Transporters (89 groups, 817 members) or Enzymes (7 groups, 533 members). In addition, 74 Miscellaneous groups were shown to include 697 members. Paper IV clarifies the hierarchy of the main families and evolutionary origin of majority of the metazoan GPCR families. Overall, it suggests common decent of at least 97% of the GPCRs sequences found in humans, including all the main families.

Abstract [en]

Membrane proteins are found in all kingdoms of life and are essential for cellular interactions with the environment. Although a large research effort have been put into this group many membrane proteins remains uncharacterized, both in terms of function and evolutionary history. We have estimated the component of α-helical membrane proteins within the human proteome; the membrane proteome. We found that the human membrane proteome make up 27% of all protein, which we could classify the majority of into 234 families and further into three major functional groups: receptors, transporters or enzymes. We extended this analysis by determining the membrane proteome of 24 organisms that covers all major groups of eukaryotes. This comprehensive membrane protein catalog of over 100,000 proteins was utilized to determine the evolutionary history of all membrane protein families throughout eukaryotes.  We also investigated the evolutionary history across eukaryotes of the antiviral Interferon induced transmembrane proteins (IFITM) and the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily in detail.  We identified ten novel human homologs to the IFITM proteins, which together with the known IFITMs forms a family that we call the Dispanins. Using phylogenetic analysis we show that the Dispanins first emerged in eukaryotes in a common ancestor of choanoflagellates and animals, and that the family later expanded in vertebrates into four subfamilies. The GPCR superfamily was mined across eukaryotic species and we present evidence for a common origin for four of the five main human GPCR families; Rhodopsin, Frizzled, Adhesion and Secretin in the cAMP receptor family that was found in non-metazoans and invertebrates, but has been lost in vertebrates. Here we present the first accurate estimation of the human proteome together with comprehensive functional and evolutionary classification and extend it to organisms that represents all major eukaryotic groups. Moreover, we identify a novel protein family, the Dispanins, which has an evolutionary history that has been formed by horizontal gene transfer from bacteria followed by expansions in the animal lineage. We also study the evolution of the GPCR superfamily throughout eukaryotic evolution and provide a comprehensive model of the evolution and relationship of these receptors.
