ERcalcistorin/protein-disulfide isomerase (ECaSt/PDI), a high capacity low affinity Ca2+-binding protein in the endoplasmic reticulum of sea urchin eggs (Lebeche, D., and Kaminer, B. (1992) Biochem. J. 287, 741-747), shares 55% sequence identity with mammalian PDI and has PDI activity (Lucero, H., Lebeche, D., and Kaminer, B. (1994) J. Biol. Chem. 269, 23112-23119). We report on ECaSt/PDI functioning as a Ca2+ storage protein in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of a living cell and compare it… CONTINUE READING
