EF-hand, Ca insensitive (IPR014837)

Short name: EF-hand_Ca_insen

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



EF hands are helix-loop-helix binding motifs involved in the regulation of many cellular processes. EF hands usually bind to Ca2+ ions, which cause a major conformational change that allows the protein to interact with its designated targets. This protein corresponds to an EF hand which has partially or entirely lost its calcium-binding properties. The calcium insensitive EF hand is still able to mediate protein-protein recognition [PMID: 11573089].
