Photoaffinity labeling study of the interaction of calmodulin with the plasma membrane Ca2+ pump.
Bovine brain calmodulin was labeled with synthetic peptides corresponding to the calmodulin-binding domain of the erythrocyte plasma membrane Ca(2+)-ATPase. One 20-amino acid peptide and two 28-amino acid peptides were used, carrying L-4'-(1-azi-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl)phenylalanine residues in position 9 (peptides C20W* and C28W*) and position 25 (peptide C28WC*), respectively. The localization of the contact regions between calmodulin and the N- and C-terminal portions of the peptides was the aim of this study. The three peptides were N-terminally blocked with a 3H-labeled acetyl group to facilitate the identification of labeled fragments after isolation and digestion. The binding site for phenylalanine 25 was identified in the N-terminal domain of calmodulin while the phenylalanine derivative in position 9 labeled the C-terminal domain. Fluorescence studies using the dansylated N- and C-terminal halves of calmodulin and peptide C20W corresponding to the first 20 amino acids of the calmodulin-binding domain showed that only the C-terminal lobe of calmodulin had high affinity for the peptide (KD in the nanomolar range).
