  • At least three CaBPs are abundant in various types of nerve cells: calbindin-D28, calretinin, and parvalbumin. The sequence of chick calretinin, from cDNA clones, is 60% homologous to that of chick calbindin. The genomic calretinin gene has also been partially sequenced. Calretinin is a protein of 29-30 kilodaltons. Antisera have been raised against beta-galactosidase-calretinin fusion proteins, and used to compare the distribution of calretinin with that of calbindin by two-colour… CONTINUE READING
