cal·mod·u·lin

 (kăl-mŏj′ə-lĭn)
n.
A calcium-binding protein that mediates many metabolic processes, such as contraction of smooth muscle, by binding to enzymes and other proteins.

n
(Biochemistry) biochem a protein found in most living cells; it regulates many enzymic processes that are dependent on calcium

12],[13] It has been demonstrated that T cell activation is initiated by an increase in the cytoplasmic level of calcium, which activates calcineurin through the binding of a regulatory subunit and activation of calmodulin binding.
Many recently reported diagnostic markers are described in this article, such as (1) signal transducer and activator of transcription 6 (STAT6) as the most sensitive and specific IHC marker for solitary fibrous tumor; (2) loss of antihistone H3 acetyl K27 trimethylation (H3K27) nuclear expression in 50% of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, particularly in high-grade malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors; (3) mucin 4 (MUC4) expression in low-grade fibromyxoid sarcomas and sclerosing epithelioid fibrosarcomas; and (4) nuclear expression of calmodulin binding transcription activator 1 (CAMTA1) in epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas.
Auxin responsive and transport protein, abscisic acid receptor, serine/threonine protein kinases and calmodulin were involved in signal transduction under low temperature stress.
Among different classes of Ca2+ sensors calmodulin (CaM), calcineurin B-like proteins (CBLs) and CBL-interacting protein kinases (CIPKs), are the best characterized (Reddy et al.

2+] at the micromolar level was also developing owing to the discovery of Ca-binding proteins, such as troponin and calmodulin expanded our knowledge of the regulatory role of [Ca.
One site is located within the promoter region of CAMTA1, a member of the highly conserved family of transcription factors associated with calcium signaling through a direct binding to calmodulin (Bouche et al.
PDE1 was assessed in presence of cyclic GMP, in basal state (1 mM EGTA) and in a calmodulin-activated state (18 nM calmodulin with 10 [micro]M Ca[Cl.
In addition, in Brassica oleracea, the activity of Gly I in leaf discs was inhibited in the presence of calmodulin inhibitors such as trifluoperazine (TFP), chlorpromazine (CPZ) and compound 48/80 in the cultures, which in turn significantly inhibited callus induction (Bagga et al.

Whey proteins are approximately 20% of the milk proteins and comprised of [beta]-lactoglobulin (50%), [alpha]-lactalbumin (20%), bovine serum albumin (10%) and other minor proteins (10%) like lactoferrin, peptone, immunoglobins, prolactin, proteose, folate, calmodulin and binding proteins.
Our first aim will be to characterise the role of Calmodulin binding sites and other unknown regulatory sites on TRP and TRPL, in the feedback loops described above.
