Dysferlin is a type II transmembrane protein implicated in Ca(2+)-dependent sarcolemmal membrane repair. Dysferlin has seven C2 domains, which are lipid and protein binding modules. In this study, we sought to characterize the lipid binding specificity of dysferlin's seven C2 domains. Dysferlin's C2A domain was able to bind to phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate [PtdIns(4)P], and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate [PtdIns(4,5)P(2)] in a Ca(2+)-dependent fashion. The remainder of the C2 domains exhibited weaker and Ca(2+)-independent binding to PS and no significant binding to phosphoinositides.
