Soluble calcium-binding proteins (SCBPs) of the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris: molecular characterization and localization by FISH in muscle and neuronal tissue
Soluble calcium-binding proteins (SCBPs) of invertebrates probably serve like their vertebrate counterpart—the parvalbumins—as soluble relaxing factors in muscles. Three SCBP isoforms (SCBP1–3) haveExpand

Gelsolin in Onychophora and Tardigrada with notes on its variability in the Ecdysozoa.
Rearrangements of the filamentous actin network involve a broad range of actin binding proteins. Among these, the gelsolin proteins sever actin filaments, cap their fast growing end and nucleateExpand

Soluble calcium-binding proteins (SCBPs) of the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris: possible role as relaxation factors in muscle
The soluble Ca2+-binding protein (SCBP) from the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris was analyzed with regard to its role as a soluble muscle relaxation factor. The actomyosin ATPase activity wasExpand
Four paralog gelsolin genes are differentially expressed in the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris.
We have identified and characterized four distinct variants of the gelsolin-related protein (EWAM P1-P4) in the earthworm L. terrestris. All of these proteins biochemically qualify as gelsolins sinceExpand
