Background: Calretinin is a calcium-binding protein which is abundant in auditory neurons. It belongs to the calbindin family. Calbindin 2 (calretinin), closely related to calbindin 1, is an intracellular calcium-binding protein belonging to the troponin C superfamily. Calbindin 1 is known to be involved in the vitamin-D-dependent calcium absorption through intestinal and renal epithelia, while the function of neuronal calbindin 1 and calbindin2 is poorly understood. The sequence of the calbindin 2 cDNA reveals an open reading frame of 271 codons coding for a protein of 31,520 Da, and shares 58% identical residues with human calbindin1.
