Quantitating and engineering the ion specificity of an EF-hand-like Ca2+ binding.

Abstract

The Escherichia coli D-galactose and D-glucose receptor, an aqueous periplasmic receptor that triggers sugar sensing and transport, possesses a single Ca2+ binding site similar in structure and specificity to the EF-hand class of sites found in eukaryotic Ca2+ signaling proteins including calmodulin and its homologues. A universal feature of these sites is… (More)
