The solution structure of Ca2+-ligated calmodulin is determined from residual dipolar couplings measured in a liquid crystalline medium and from a large number of heteronuclear J couplings for defining side chains. Although the C-terminal domain solution structure is similar to the X-ray crystal structure, the EF hands of the N-terminal domain are considerably less open. The substantial differences in interhelical angles correspond to negligible changes in short interproton distances and… Expand

A molecular dynamics study of Ca(2+)-calmodulin: evidence of interdomain coupling and structural collapse on the nanosecond timescale.
TLDR
A 20-ns molecular dynamics simulation of Ca(2+)-calmodulin (CaM) in explicit solvent is described, which shows a compact shape similar in dimension to complexes of CaM and target peptides but with a substantially different orientation between the N- and C-terminal domains. Expand
Determination of the Individual Roles of the Linker Residues in the Inter-Domain Motions of Calmodulin using NMR Chemical Shifts
Many protein molecules are formed by two or more domains whose structures and dynamics are closely related to their biological functions. It is challenging, however, to determine the structuralExpand
Investigation of Protein Structure and Dynamics
TLDR
This thesis addresses three aspects of protein function: the structural investigation of a calmodulin-peptide complex by NMR spectroscopy, the development of a web based tool that can aid with the identification of protein-protein cross-links and peptide-based post-translational modifications by mass spectrometry, and progress towards determining a high resolution structure of the Dead end protein. Expand
A closed compact structure of native Ca(2+)-calmodulin.
TLDR
A X-ray structure of a new native Ca(2+)-CaM that is in a compact ellipsoidal conformation and shows a sharp bend in the linker helix and a more contracted N-terminal domain may offer advantages for recognition of kinase-type calmodulin targets or small organic molecule drugs. Expand
Role of Water Mediated Interactions in Calcium-Coupled Allostery of Calmodulin Domains
TLDR
A water-bridged coordination mechanism during Ca2+ binding and dehydration is revealed, in which the bridging water molecules reduce the entropy penalty during the coordination of liganding residues, thus contributing to efficient ligand binding in CaM domains. Expand
A Novel Trans Conformation of Ligand-Free Calmodulin
TLDR
This report reports the crystal structure of a novel trans conformation of ligand-free CaM where the relative disposition of two lobes of CaM is different, a conformation to-date not reported. Expand
Determination of the individual roles of the linker residues in the interdomain motions of calmodulin using NMR chemical shifts.
TLDR
It is found that the conformational fluctuations of the interdomain linker, which are largely responsible for the overall interdomain motions of CaM, can be well described by exploiting the information provided by chemical shifts. Expand
Structure of calmodulin complexed with an olfactory CNG channelfragment and role of the central linker: Residual dipolar couplingsto evaluate calmodulin binding modes outside the kinase family
The NMR high-resolution structure of calmodulin complexed with a fragment of the olfactory cyclic-nucleotide gated channel is described. This structure shows features that are unique for thisExpand
Complex of calmodulin with a ryanodine receptor target reveals a novel, flexible binding mode.
TLDR
Calmodulin regulates the Ca(2+) channel by switching between the contiguous binding mode seen in the crystal structure and a state where one lobe of calmodulin contacts the conserved binding site while the other interacts with a noncontiguous site on the channel. Expand
Unexpected Structure of the Ca2+-regulatory Region from Soybean Calcium-dependent Protein Kinase-α*
TLDR
High resolution solution structure of the calcium-regulatory region from soybean CDPK-α determined in the presence of a peptide encompassing the junction domain shows an activated state with both lobes positioned side by side, similar to calcineurin B rather than calmodulin, highlighting the possible pitfall of assigning function purely from sequence information.

Calcium-induced conformational transition revealed by the solution structure of apo calmodulin
TLDR
The solution structure of Ca2-free calmodulin has been determined by NMR spectroscopy, and is compared to the previously reported structure of the Ca2+-saturated form, and concerted movements of helices A and D with respect to B and C, are likely responsible for the cooperative Ca2+,binding property observed between two adjacent EF-hand sites in the amino- and carboxy-terminal domains.

The 1.0 A crystal structure of Ca(2+)-bound calmodulin: an analysis of disorder and implications for functionally relevant plasticity.
TLDR
It is proposed that the functionally distinct forms of CaM are less structurally distinct than previously believed, and that the different activities of Ca M in response to Ca(2+) may result primarily from Ca( 2+)-mediated alterations in the dynamics of the protein. Expand

TLDR
The backbone dynamics of Ca(2+)-saturated recombinant Drosophila calmodulin has been studied by 15N longitudinal and transverse relaxation experiments, combined with 15N(1H) NOE measurements, showing a high degree of mobility near the middle of the central helix and anisotropy observed in the motion of the two globular cal modulin domains is much smaller than expected.

The differences between the average solution conformations obtained using dipolar couplings and the crystal conformations for both forms of lysozyme investigated in this study illustrate the impact that crystal packing interactions can have on the arrangement of domains within proteins and the importance of alternative methods to X-ray crystallography for evaluating inter-domain structure.
