    • Ryanodine receptor, SPRY domain 3 (IPR035762)


This SPRY domain is the third of three structural repeats in all three isoforms of the ryanodine receptor (RyR), which are the major Ca2+ release channels in the membranes of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) [PMID: 9204703]. There are three RyR genes in mammals; the skeletal RyR1, the cardiac RyR2 and the brain RyR3 [PMID: 20961976]. The three SPRY domains are located in the N-terminal part of the cytoplasmic region of the RyRs, but no specific function has been found for this third SPRY domain of the RyRs [PMID: 19399493].
