A number of agents have been used to substitute or augment for calcium-binding proteins
are responsible for the transport of Ca through the enterocyte (Bronner, 1998) and are present in greater concentrations in the duodenum than in the jejunum (Allen, 1982).
1975) determined that the major constituents of the spasmoneme were small, acidic calcium-binding proteins
, denoted spasmins.
com/) is intended to supplement the loss of critical calcium-binding proteins
depleted in the normal course of healthy aging.
subregions of the amygdala), researchers could measure the relative expression of three calcium-binding proteins
called parvalbuinin, calretinin, and calbindin.
The other calcium-binding proteins
in this cluster, annexin A2 (Anxa2) and annexin A6 (Anxa6), are not reported to have such a relationship to fibrosis, but as calcium-binding proteins
, and it is interesting to observe that they are increased in expression in the same manner as calcyclin.
Two calcium-binding proteins
in infiltrate macrophages of rheumatoid arthritis.
Vitamin D acts to maintain bone integrity by promoting synthesis of calcium-binding proteins
(calbindins) required for the active transport of calcium across the intestinal wall; low vitamin D status is associated with increased risk of osteoporosis.
Weber's laboratory is developing small-molecule inhibitors geared to a family of calcium-binding proteins
called S100 proteins, including one that is being tested in a clinical study as a possible treatment for melanoma.
A large family of calcium-binding proteins
serve as sensors and buffers of the calcium ion.
At about forty, our brains produce fewer calcium-binding proteins
Expression pattern of S100 calcium-binding proteins
