The Ca2+ sensor calmodulin (CaM) regulates cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2)-mediated Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. CaM inhibits RyR2 in a Ca2+-dependent manner and aberrant CaM-dependent inhibition results in life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. However, the molecular details of the CaM-RyR2 interaction
