    The plasma membrane Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX) is almost certainly the major Ca2+ extrusion mechanism in cardiac myocytes. Binding of Na+ and Ca2+ ions to its large cytosolic loop regulates ion transport of the exchanger. We determined the solution structures of two Ca2+ binding domains (CBD1 and CBD2) that, together with an alpha-catenin-like domain (CLD), form the regulatory exchanger loop. CBD1 and CBD2 are very similar in the Ca2+ bound state and describe the Calx-beta motif. Strikingly, in the absence of Ca2+, the upper half of CBD1 unfolds while CBD2 maintains its structural integrity. Together with a 7-fold higher affinity for Ca2+, this suggests that CBD1 is the primary Ca2+ sensor. Specific point mutations in either domain largely allow the interchange of their functionality and uncover the mechanism underlying Ca2+ sensing in NCX.
