GCA / Grancalcin Protein Description
Grancalcin (GCA) is a EF-hand Ca(2+)-binding protein, which is particularly abundant in neutrophils and monocytes, with relatively small amounts in lymphocytes. It belongs to the penta-EF-hand subfamily of proteins which includes sorcin, calpain, and ALG-2. Grancalcin protein displays a Ca(2+)-dependent translocation to the granules and plasma membrane of neutrophils, suggesting that it might play an effector role in the specialized functions of these cells. Grancalcin localization is dependent upon calcium and magnesium. Grancalcin binds reversibly to secretory vesicles and plasma membranes in human neutrophils and might therefore play a role in the regulation of vesicle/granule exocytosis. Recently, L-plastin, a leukocyte-specific actin-bundling protein, was found to interact with grancalcin in a negative Ca(2+)-dependent manner. In addition, Grancalcin plays a key role in leukocyte-specific functions that are responsible for host defense.
