Structural analysis of Mg2+ and Ca2+ binding, myristoylation, and dimerization of the neuronal calcium sensor and visinin-like protein 1 (VILIP-1).


Visinin-like protein 1 (VILIP-1) belongs to the neuronal calcium sensor family of Ca(2+)-myristoyl switch proteins that regulate signal transduction in the brain and retina. Here we analyze Ca(2+) and Mg(2+) binding, characterize metal-induced conformational changes, and determine structural effects of myristoylation and dimerization. Mg(2+) binds… (More)
