calcium free footprinting

Dear all:
I have a calcium binding protein which shows a band shift with appropriate 
dsDNA. I 
wanted to get the specific binding sequence for this protein. The thing is, 
since it is a 
calcium binding protein even nM concentration of calcium alters the structure 
as seen by 
the CD analysis. I tried to use the DNaseI for footprinting, unfortunately, 
all the 
DNase were active only in the presence of calcium ions. Is there any other 
method I 
could try to get the binding sequence. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Karthi
