Calmodulin (CaM) is a Ca(2+) -binding protein that regulates a number of fundamental cellular activities. Nicotiana tabacum CaM (NtCaM) comprises 13 genes classified into three types, among which gene expression and target enzyme activation differ. We performed Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy to compare the secondary and coordination structures of Mg(2+) and Ca(2+) among NtCaM1, NtCaM3, and NtCaM13 as representatives of the three types of NtCaMs. Data suggested that NtCaM13 has a different secondary structure due to the weak β-strand bands and the weak 1661 cm(-1) band. Coordination structures of Mg(2+) of NtCaM3 and NtCaM13 were similar but different from that of NtCaM1, while the Ca(2+) -binding manner was similar among the three CaMs. The amplitude differences of the band at 1554-1550 cm(-1) obtained by second-derivative spectra indicated that the intensity change of the band of NtCaM13 was smaller in response to [Ca(2+) ] increases under low [Ca(2+) ] conditions than were those of NtCaM1 and NtCaM3, while the intensity reached the same level under high [Ca(2+) ]. Therefore, NtCaM13 has a characteristic secondary structure and specific Mg(2+) -binding manner and needs higher [Ca(2+) ] for bidentate Ca(2+) coordination of 12th Glu in EF-hand motifs. The Ca(2+) -binding mechanisms of the EF-hand motifs of the three CaMs are similar; however, the cation-dependent conformational change in NtCaM13 is unique among the three NtCaMs. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
