S100A1, a member of the large EF-hand family of Ca 2+ -binding proteins, is mainly expressed in the mammalian heart. To assess the underlying mechanisms for cell- and tissue-specific expression we isolated and characterized the mouse S100A1 gene. The gene displays a high degree of homology to the...
Transcriptional repressor DREAM, an EF-hand containing calcium-binding protein, blocks basal expression of target genes through specific interaction with DRE sites in the DNA. The sequence GTCA forms the central core of the DRE site, whereas flanking nucleotides contribute notably to the affinity...
Annexin II is a member of the annexin family of Ca 2+ - and phospholipid-binding proteins which is particularly enriched on early endosomal membranes and has been implicated in participating in endocytic events. In contrast to other endosomal annexins the association of annexin II with its target...
