[Calpains, protein kinase c and development of muscle tissue].

Abstract

Calpains are Ca2+ -dependent thiol proteases which have been identified in various tissues of eucaryotes, but their physiological function in the cell is uncertain. In the muscle fiber, two types of calpains are present which differ by their calcium sensitivity: calpain 1 and calpain 2, which require for their activity micro and millimolar concentrations of… (More)
