Calcium binding domains of calmodulin. Sequence of fill as determined with terbium luminescence.


Terbium, a trivalent lanthanide, effectively substituted for Ca2+ in calmodulin as judged by several criteria: intrinsic fluorescence spectra, altered mobilities on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, formation of a stable complex with troponin I or calcineurin, and stimulation of phosphodiesterase. Calmodulin harbors four Ca2+ binding domains; domains I… (More)
