Protein (44 kD) found in the cisternae of sarcoplasmic reticulum: sequesters calcium.
Calsequestrin is a calcium-binding protein of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. The protein helps hold calcium in the cisterna of the sarcoplasmic reticulum after a muscle contraction, even though the concentration of calcium in the sarcoplasmic reticulum is much higher than in the cytosol. It also helps the sarcoplasmic reticulum store an extraordinari...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calsequestrin
