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.

Caution

Was originally thought to have a internal disulfide bond.1 Publication

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.

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:i9AA5B636288A5B8F
