Calcium plays an important role for signal transduction in the mammalian pineal organ. The regulation of the intracellular concentration of free calcium probably involves calcium-binding proteins of the calmodulin superfamily. In the present study, we have investigated the expression of calretinin, one member of this superfamily, in the pineal organ of hamsters, gerbils and guinea-pigs by means of immunochemical and immunocytochemical analyses with a calretinin-specific antiserum.
