Parvalbumin (PA) is a classical small, mostly cytosolic Ca2+-binding protein of the EF-hand superfamily expressed in vertebrates in a tissue- and cell-specific manner, serving as a magnesium/ calcium buffer (Permyakov EA et al., 2017). Parvalbumin (PV)-expressing interneurons are a class of inhibitory neurons that fire rapid barrages of action potentials, and are accordingly named “fast-spiking” interneurons (Trachtenberg J. 2015).
