The muscle-specific glutathione transferase GSTM2-2 modulates the activity of ryanodine receptor (RyR) calcium release channels: it inhibits the activity of cardiac RyR (RyR2) channels with high affinity and activates skeletal RyR (RyR1) channels with low affinity. The C terminal domain of GSTM2-2 (GSTM2C) alone physically binds to RyR2 and inhibits its activity, but it does not bind to RyR1. We have now used yeast two-hybrid analysis, chemical cross-linking, intrinsic tryptophan fluorescence...[Show more]
