Role of four calcium transport proteins, encoded by nca-1, nca-2, nca-3, and cax, in maintaining intracellular calcium levels in Neurospora crassa.

Role of four calcium transport proteins, encoded by nca-1, nca-2, nca-3, and cax, in maintaining intracellular calcium levels in Neurospora crassa.

We have examined the distribution of calcium in Neurospora crassa and investigated the function of four predicted calcium transport proteins. The outcomes of cell fractionation experiments confirmed 4% of mobile calcium in mitochondria, roughly 11% in a dense vacuolar fraction, 40% in an insoluble kind that copurifies with microsomes, and 40% in a high-speed supernatant, …
