Figure Legend Snippet: RTx-mediated TRPV1 gating mechanism. In the unstimulated apo state, the channel is closed both at the selectivity filter and S6 gate. 1 Initially, RTx binds with no significant conformational changes. 2 RTx binding induces S6 gate dilation. 3 The M644 sidechain flips outward, and the CD moves towards the channel core. 4 Finally, rearrangement of the PL, PH, TJ results in further dilation of the S6 gate.

Figure Legend Snippet: Thermal titration cryo-EM experiment and the effect of RTx on TRPV1 heat sensitivity. a A representative macroscopic current time-course (top panel) recorded from a HEK-293T cell expressing rat TRPV1 in response to the temperature ramp (10–50 °C) at a membrane potential of −60 mV and then followed by a saturating concentration of RTx (50 nM) and 20 µM ruthenium red (RR). The dashed line indicates zero current. The recorded temperature is shown in the middle panel. The Arrhenius plot for the temperature activation was shown in the bottom panel. Fitted Q 10 values for high (blue line) and low (red line) temperature ranges are shown. b A representative time-course recording for RTx-bound TRPV1 temperature sensitivity. First the channel was challenged by 10 nM RTx for ~20 s followed by a temperature ramp (10–48 °C), then a saturating concentration of RTx (50 nM) was introduced, and finally RR (20 µM) was applied to completely block the channel. The dashed line indicates zero current. The recorded temperature is shown in the middle panel and the Arrhenius plot for the temperature activation is shown in the bottom panel. Fitted Q 10 values for high and low temperature (T) ranges are shown. c Q 10 values as a function of I/I 50nM RTx for low and high temperature ranges. Each experiment was conducted as shown in a and b . The low T range Q 10 value is steady at 1.7, while the high T range Q 10 rapidly collapses from ~38 to ~3. Each pair of high and low temperature sensitivity data points represents independent time-course recordings from individual cells ( n = 17 cells). Source data are provided as a Source Data file. d Representative micrographs of TRPV1 recorded in the presence of 50 μM RTx at 4 °C, 25 °C and 48 °C, respectively. Cryo-EM maps of RTx-TRPV1 determined at 4 °C (class I, class II, and class III), 25 °C (class A and class B), and 48 °C (class α). Note the differences between central pore sizes amongst different classes at 4 °C. The classes not found in each dataset are shown as transparent. The pie charts depict particle distributions among classes for each dataset along with representative micrographs. Each pie chart represents an average value for four independent data processes (Supplementary Fig. 2a , b ).
