Effects of cations on affinity of calmodulin for calcium: ordered binding of calcium ions allows the specific activation of calmodulin-stimulated enzymes.


The acid stability of calmodulin has been used to devise a rapid and efficient method of decalcification based on trichloroacetic acid precipitation. Study of the competitive binding of K+, Mg2+, and Ca2+ to the Ca2+-binding sites of calmodulin has allowed determination of the intrinsic binding constants of each of the three cations for the four Ca2… (More)
