Two isoforms of the vitamin D-dependent Ca-binding proteins have been described so far: calbindin D28k, also referred to as CALB 1, D-28k, and CAB 27, and calbindin D29k, also known as calretinin. These proteins are expressed in cells that have to handle a high calcium influx such as brain, bone, teeth, inner ear and others. Calbindins are believed to regulate cellular activity by suppressing or buffering intracellur calcium
