Identification of novel calcium binding proteins of heart and brain 100,000 x g supernatant.

Abstract

The chelex competitive calcium binding assay has been used to assay the calcium binding activity of the 100,000 X g supernatant of bovine heart and brain. Chromatography of brain 100,000 X g supernatant on diethylamino-ethyl (DEAE) cellulose reveals the presence of two peaks of calcium binding activity, peak I eluting at about 0.05 M NaCl and peak II at about 0.18 M NaCl. Chromatography of peak I on Sephadex G-150 resolves a major and a minor peak of calcium binding activity, at Mr 40,000 and Mr 150,000. Chromatography of peak II (0.18 M NaCl) on Sepharose 6B produces two peaks of calcium binding activity, a broad peak of calcium binding activity composed of two molecular weight species of Mr 230,000 and Mr 420,000, and a sharp peak of calcium binding activity with Mr 75,000. Chromatography of the 100,000 X g supernatant of bovine heart on DEAE Cellulose reveals two peaks of calcium binding activity. Chromatography of the lower ionic strength peak on Sephadex G-150 resolved major and minor peaks of calcium binding activity at Mr 65,000 and 150,000, respectively. The results of this study suggest the presence of several calcium binding proteins, other than calmodulin, in these tissues.
