By Marek Michalak Ph.D. (auth.)

This e-book is set calreticulin, a multifunctional calcium binding protein first stumbled on over two decades in the past. The protein has been defined in a variety of destinations: endoplasmic reticulum, nuclear envelope, cytoplasmic granules, nucleus, mobilephone floor or even secreted into the blood movement. This quantity outlines the newly chanced on features for calreticulin together with its keep an eye on of calcium homeostasis, modulation of steroid-sensitive gene expression, regulate of viral RNA replication, modulation of nuclear delivery, position in T lymphocyte activation and cytotoxic killing, chaperone functionality, keep watch over of adhesion-dependent signaling through integrins, attainable position within the biology of ticks, within the pathology of autoimmune illnesses and in blood function.

3' Hopefully, in the near future, we will have a better understanding of the functional consequences of Ca2 + binding (and/or other cation) to calreticulin. It would be fascinating to understand a role for the unique high affinity Ca2 + binding site in the protein. ACKNOWLEDGMENT We are grateful to Thidi (Dr. M. Waser) for designing the figures.
