Polyclonal Rabbit Serum IH
Calretinin is an intracellular calcium-binding protein belonging to the troponin C superfamily. The sequence of the calretinin cDNA revealed an open reading frame of 271 codons coding for a protein of 31 520 Da, and sharing 58% identical residues with Human calbindin D28k. It contains five presumably active and one presumably inactive calcium-binding domain. The protein is highly conserved in evolution and is expressed in the brain mianly in the auditory neurons. There are two additional forms of alternatively spliced calbindin 2 mRNAs encoding C-terminally truncated proteins. Exon 7 can splice to exon 9, resulting in a frame shift and a translational stop at the second codon of exon 9, and encoding calretinin-20k. Exon 7 can also splice to exon 10, resulting in a frame shift and a translational stop at codon 15 of exon 10, and encoding calretinin-22k. The truncated proteins are able to bind calcium. It is mapped to 16q22.2 region of Human chromosome.
