caltractin
Calcium-binding (EF-hand) protein (20 kD) from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Major component of the contractile striated rootlet system that links basal bodies to the nucleus in Chlamydomonas. Part of the calmodulin/troponin C family, it has sequence homology with 20 kD calcium-binding proteins (centrins) found in other basal body-associated structures and with the cdc31 gene product associated with spindle pole body duplication in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
