The Calmyrin2 (CaMy2, Cib2) is a novel calcium-binding protein with EF-hand found recently in skeletal muscle. Calcium signals are transmitted by Ca2+ binding proteins, which own the same myristoylated N-terminus. CaMy2 is myristoylated in vivo, similarly as CaMy1 and VILIP1, which in response to Ca-signal exhibit redistribution from the cytoplasm to membranes by so called Ca/myristoyl switch. CaMy2 was detected mainly in subcellular membranes and no Ca-dependent translocation was observed. In summary, although CaMy2 and CaMy1 undergo myristoylation in vivo, they do not exhibit Ca/myristoyl switch, but instead seem constitutively associated with subcellular membranes. In addition, observed differences in subcellular localisation of the two members of CaMy protein family suggest they are specialized to transmit Ca transients at their specific membrane locations mediating different Ca-signaling pathways.

Entrez Gene summary for CIB2:
The amino acid sequence the protein encoded by this gene is similar to that of KIP/CIB, calcineurin B, and calmodulin. This suggests that the encoded protein may be a Ca2+-binding regulatory protein that interacts with DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs).
OMIM - description for CIB2:
DNA-dependent protein kinases (DNA-PK) play a role in the repair of double-strand DNA breaks and in the process of V(D)J recombination during lymphoid development. By EST database searching for sequences homologous to the DNA-PK gene KIP/CIB (602293) and 5-prime RACE, Seki et al. (1999) isolated a full-length cDNA, which they designated KIP2, from a human fetal brain cDNA library. KIP2 encodes a deduced 187-amino acid protein with a predicted molecular mass of 22 kD. The KIP2 protein shares 46%, 39%, and 30% sequence identity with the calcium-binding proteins KIP/CIB (602293), calcineurin B (601302), and calmodulin (114803), respectively. Sequence analysis of KIP2 revealed 2 EF-hand motifs and a helix-loop-helix motif involved in coordinating the calcium ion, indicating that KIP2 may also bind calcium. RT-PCR analysis indicated that KIP2 is ubiquitously expressed in various human tissues.
