The interaction of calmodulin with calcineurin, a calcium- and calmodulin-stimulated protein phosphatase, was investigated using a solid-phase assay. Binding of 125I-calmodulin by calcineurin immobilized on nitrocellulose membrane filters was of high affinity, reversible, and calcium-dependent. Complex binding kinetics reflected a time- and calcium/calmodulin-dependent conformational change of calcineurin which was shown to be ligand-induced renaturation. After renaturation and removal of calmodulin, immobilized calcineurin exhibited simple 125I-calmodulin binding kinetics with a single class of independent sites. The maximum stoichiometry of 125I-calmodulin binding to immobilized calcineuri..View full abstract
