The nearly complete amino acid sequence obtained for murine calcyclin from Ehrlich ascites tumor cells reveals a very strong similarity with the rat and human sequences previously deduced from corresponding cDNA clones. While mouse and rat calcyclins are identical, the human protein shows at three positions a conservative amino acid replacement. Using a mouse calcyclin affinity matrix, two proteins with molecular masses of about 36 kDa have been purified from Ehrlich ascites tumor cells. The interaction between these two proteins and the immobilized calcyclin is strictly Ca2(+)-dependent. Immunological criteria and partial sequence data identify the two calcyclin-binding proteins as the phospholipid-binding protein annexin II (p36) and the glycolytic enzyme glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase. These observations suggest that calcyclin may exert its physiological function by a Ca2(+)-dependent interaction with cellular targets, e.g. annexin II or glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase.
