To elucidate some aspects still debated concerning the interaction of Ca2+ and Mg2+ with CaM, the thermodynamic binding parameters of Ca2+-CaM and Mg2+-CaM complexes were characterized by flow dialysis and isothermal microcalorimetry under different experimental conditions. In particular, the enthalpy and entropy changes associated with Ca2+ and Mg2+ binding to their sites were determined, allowing a better understanding of the mechanism underlying cation-CaM interactions. Ca2+-CaM interaction… CONTINUE READING
