Calcium binding proteins.

Wiley series in protein and peptide science; 5


Calcium binds specifically and essentially to many proteins both within and between cells; to proteins of eubacteria, archae, and viruses; and is the essential constituent of many biominerals. Permiakov (biological instrumentation, Russian Academy of Sciences) and Kretsinger (biology, U. of Virginia-Charlottesville) explore the many proteins that calcium binds with, and the changes such binding makes in the protein. Their topics include physiological processes involving calcium binding proteins, complexes of calcium and other cations with compounds of low molecular weight, the structure and evolution of proteins, and interactions of calcium binding proteins with other metal ions.
