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)
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)
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)
A new pH-dependent off-resonance ROESY-HSQC experiment has been used to characterize the degree of protection of the amide protons of cryptogein, a protein of the elicitin family, against solvent exchange. The study of the pH dependence of solvent-shielded amide protons in this protein reveals that the helices have different levels of stability. Two of the(More)
