The EyeSite is a web-based database of protein families for proteins that function in the eye and their homologous sequences. The resource clusters proteins at different levels of homology in order to facilitate functional annotation of sequences and modelling of proteins from structural homologues. Eye proteins are organized into the tissue types in which(More)
Calmodulin, the Ca(2+)-dependent activator of many cellular processes, contains two well-defined structural domains, each of which binds two Ca(2+) ions. In its Ca(2+)-free (apo) form, it provides an attractive model for studying mechanisms of protein unfolding, exhibiting two separable, reversible processes, indicating two structurally autonomous folding(More)
The Ca(2+) titration of the (15)N-labeled mutant V136G calmodulin has been monitored using (1)H-(15)N HSQC NMR spectra. Up to a [Ca(2+)]/[CaM] ratio of 2, the Ca(2+) ions bind predominantly to sites I and II on the N-domain in contrast with the behavior of the wild-type calmodulin where the C-terminal domain has the higher affinity for Ca(2+). Surprisingly,(More)
