Abstract
Phosphofructokinase (PFK) is a calmodulin (CaM) binding protein (Mayr, G.W. and Heilmeyer , L.M.G., Jr (1983) FEBS Lett. 195, 51)..We found that troponin C (TnC), which is homologous to CaM, also binds PFK. PFK titration of AEDANS-TnC showed that their apparent dissociation constant is comparable to that of PFK-CaM. Fluorescent labels were used to probe contact regions on TnC and CaM. It is likely that the C-terminal end of the connecting strand of the TnC molecule is close to PFK in the binary complex. Hydrophobic regions of TnC and CaM also possibly play roles in the binding and in the polymerization of PFK.
