The calcium-sensitive photoprotein aequorin has properties that make it well suited for studies of protein-ligand interactions. Its behavior resembles that of classical drug receptors in many ways. A two-state model reproduces many of the properties of aequorin, including two that are not consistent with the conventional occupancy model.
