Visinin-like protein-1 (VILIP-1) belongs to the family of neuronal calcium sensor (NCS) proteins, a neuronal subfamily of EF-hand [corrected] calcium-binding proteins that are myristoylated at their N termini. NCS proteins are discussed to play roles in calcium-dependent signal transduction of physiological and pathological processes in the CNS. The calcium-dependent membrane association, the so-called calcium-myristoyl switch, localizes NCS proteins to a distinct cellular signaling compartment… CONTINUE READING
