Elucidating the function of D24H Inverse Pericam mutant

Background

In module 2 of 20.109, we created the D24H mutant of inverse pericam. The experimental results from the calcium binding assay was surprising as calcium affinity decreased (Kd increase), yet cooperativtiy increased. For a final research idea, I would like to propose the set of experiments that would elucidate how the addition of a histidine into the first binding loop of inverse pericam can make these changes.

Ideas

-working under the assumption that the SDM did indeed work (sequencing with BLAST, discontinuous mega-blast suggests it did indeed work)

- consider looking at calmodulin only.
