Structure and Biology of Calbindin

Calbindins D-28K (CBD) and D-9K (CBD-9K) are EF-hand proteins that are regarded as calcium buffer proteins together with parvalbumins (PV). CBD is a type III EF-hand protein possessing six EF-hands (see Table 4), all of which seem to be packed in one globular domain, but the folding and packing of individual domains within the globular domain appears to be specific (Linse
