is a dimeric 24kDa, calcium sensing protein from neurons that belongs to
a family with visin, VILIP and hippocalcin. The interaction with F-actin
is requires calcium (Mornet
& Bonet-Kerrache, 2001).
Neurocalcin is myristoylated, and also binds clathrin and tubulin in
addition to actin (Ivings
et al, 2002).
is also known as VILIP-3.
