Characterization and function of a novel calmodulin-like protein from crayfish Procambarus clarkii.

Calmodulin plays an important role in calcium-dependent signal transduction pathways. In this experiment, a novel calmodulin-like gene (Pc-CaM-L) was identified in the crayfish Procambarus clarkii; it encodes a polypeptide of 145 amino acids. Quantitative real-time PCR analysis revealed that Pc-CaM-L was expressed in all examined tissues, including… (More)
