Calmodulin stimulates the degradation of brain spectrin by calpain.


Brain spectrin has been shown to be a preferential substrate of calcium-dependent proteases (Baudry, Bundman, Smith, and Lynch: Science 212:937-938, 1981) and a major calmodulin-binding protein (Kakiuchi, Sobue, and Fujita: FEBS Lett. 132:144-148, 1981). Since calmodulin, spectrin, and a proteolytically derived spectrin fragment are all components of… (More)
