Aequorin-1

Gene
N/A
Organism
Aequorea victoria (Jellyfish)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 4 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Ca2+-dependent bioluminescence photoprotein. Displays an emission peak at 470 nm (blue light). Trace amounts of calcium ion trigger the intramolecular oxidation of the chromophore, coelenterazine into coelenteramide and CO2 with the concomitant emission of light.

Pathology & Biotechi

Biotechnological usei

Aequorin is used as an intracellular Ca2+ indicator. Aequorin has a number of advantages over other Ca2+ indicators, for example, low leakage rate from cells, lack of intracellular compartmentalization or sequestration and it does not disrupt cell functions or embryo development.

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
