Analysis of calcium-dependent interaction between amino-terminal conserved region of calpastatin functional domain and calmodulin-like domain of mu-calpain large subunit.


Calpain requires Ca2+ both for proteolysis of its substrates and for interaction with its endogenous inhibitor, calpastatin. Although calmodulin-like domains (CaMLDs) of large and small subunits of calpain have been suggested to be the sites for Ca(2+)-dependent interaction with calpastatin, specificity and molecular basis of the interaction have remained… (More)
