The present report was undertaken in an effort to characterize the nature of Ca2+ binding protein(s) in the central nervous system of less evolved vertebrates. In particular we investigated whether the brain microsomal fraction of Rana esculenta expresses calsequestrin, calreticulin and/or other related Ca2+ binding protein(s). We found that a 60 KDa protein having an NH2-terminal amino acid sequence similar to mammalian calreticulin is the major microsomal Ca2(+)-binding protein.

Frog brain expresses a 60 KDa Ca2+ binding protein similar to mammalian calreticulin.

Abstract

The present report was undertaken in an effort to characterize the nature of Ca2+ binding protein(s) in the central nervous system of less evolved vertebrates. In particular we investigated whether the brain microsomal fraction of Rana esculenta expresses calsequestrin, calreticulin and/or other related Ca2+ binding protein(s). We found that a 60 KDa protein having an NH2-terminal amino acid sequence similar to mammalian calreticulin is the major microsomal Ca2(+)-binding protein.
