Caldesmon is a potential actomyosin regulatory protein found in smooth muscle and
nonmuscle cells. The predicted smooth-muscle polypeptide is 793 amino acids long.
The high molecular weight caldesmon(h-CaD) is predominantly expressed in smooth
muscles, whereas the low molecular weight caldesmon(l-CaD) is widely distributed in
nonmuscle tissues and cells. Hayashi et al.(1992) demonstrated that the human CDM
gene is composed of 14 exons.

Gene Name CALD1
Protein Name Caldesmon
Gene Full Name caldesmon 1
Protein Function Actin- and myosin-binding protein implicated in the regulation of
actomyosin interactions in smooth muscle and nonmuscle cells
(could act as a bridge between myosin and actin filaments).
Stimulates actin binding of tropomyosin which increases the
stabilization of actin filament structure. In muscle tissues,
inhibits the actomyosin ATPase by binding to F-actin. This
inhibition is attenuated by calcium-calmodulin and is potentiated
by tropomyosin. Interacts with actin, myosin, two molecules of
tropomyosin and with calmodulin. Also play an essential role
during cellular mitosis and receptor capping. Involved in
Schwann cell migration during peripheral nerve regeneration
(By similarity).
Tissue Specificity High-molecular-weight caldesmon (isoform 1) is predominantly
expressed in smooth muscles, whereas low-molecular- weight
caldesmon (isoforms 2, 3, 4 and 5) are widely distributed in
non-muscle tissues and cells. Not expressed in skeletal muscle
or heart.
Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton . Cytoplasm, myofibril . Note: On thin
filaments in smooth muscle and on stress fibers in fibroblasts
