The muscle specific glutathione transferase GSTM2-2 inhibits the activity of cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2) calcium release channels with high affinity and activates skeletal RyR (RyR1) channels with lower affinity. To determine which overall region of the GSTM2-2 molecule supports binding to RyR2, we examined the effects of truncating GSTM2-2 on its ability to alter Ca2+ release from sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) vesicles and RyR channel activity. The C-terminal half of GSTM2-2 which lacks...[Show more]
