We report the isolation of high affinity calcium-binding peptides from homogenates of gills, gut and kidneys of the freshwater eel Anguilla anguilla. These peptides show identical gel-filtration profiles on Biogel P-6, from which a molecular weight of 3500 was estimated. The average binding constant (Kf) for calcium is 7 . 10(7)M-1, and MgCl2 up to 5 mM does not displace calcium.
