CALMODULIN AND CALMODULIN-BINDING PROTEINS IN PLANTS

CALMODULIN AND CALMODULIN-BINDING PROTEINS IN PLANTS ▪ Abstract Calmodulin is a small Ca 2+ -binding protein that acts to transduce second messenger signals into a wide array of cellular responses. Plant calmodulins share many structural and functional features with their homologs from animals and yeast, but the expression of multiple protein isoforms appears to be a distinctive feature of higher plants. Calmodulin acts by binding to short peptide sequences within target proteins, thereby inducing structural changes, which alters their activities in response to changes in intracellular Ca 2+ concentration. The spectrum of plant calmodulin-binding proteins shares some overlap with that found in animals, but a growing number of calmodulin-regulated proteins in plants appear to be unique. Ca 2+ -binding and enzymatic activation properties of calmodulin are discussed emphasizing the functional linkages between these processes and the diverse pathways that are dependent on Ca 2+ signaling. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annual Review of Plant Biology Annual Reviews

Abstract

▪ Abstract Calmodulin is a small Ca 2+ -binding protein that acts to transduce second messenger signals into a wide array of cellular responses. Plant calmodulins share many structural and functional features with their homologs from animals and yeast, but the expression of multiple protein isoforms appears to be a distinctive feature of higher plants. Calmodulin acts by binding to short peptide sequences within target proteins, thereby inducing structural changes, which alters their activities in response to changes in intracellular Ca 2+ concentration. The spectrum of plant calmodulin-binding proteins shares some overlap with that found in animals, but a growing number of calmodulin-regulated proteins in plants appear to be unique. Ca 2+ -binding and enzymatic activation properties of calmodulin are discussed emphasizing the functional linkages between these processes and the diverse pathways that are dependent on Ca 2+ signaling.
