Roles of calmodulin and calmodulin-binding proteins in synaptic vesicle recycling during regulated exocytosis at submicromolar Ca2+ concentrations.

Abstract

Calcium ion is required at various concentrations for vesicular recycling in the presynaptic terminal. Although calmodulin (CaM) is the most abundant Ca2+-binding protein and has a submicromolar affinity for Ca2+, it is not the Ca2+ sensor for vesicular fusion because this process requires Ca2+ concentrations above 1 microM. Several lines of evidence… (More)
