Specificity No cross reactivity with other proteins
Pack Size 100μg/vial
Calponin is a basic 34-kD protein first isolated from chicken gizzard and bovine aorta. It
is specifically expressed in smooth muscle and binds calmodulin, actin, and
tropomyosin. It is able to inhibit the ATPase activity of myosin and is thought to play a
role in smooth muscle contraction. Calponin is a smooth muscle specific, actin-,
tropomyosin- and calmodulin-binding protein though to be involved in some way in the
regulation or modulation of contraction.
Gene Name CNN2
Protein Name Calponin-2
Gene Full Name Calponin-2
Protein Function Thin filament-associated protein that is implicated in the
regulation and modulation of smooth muscle contraction. It is
capable of binding to actin, calmodulin, troponin C and
tropomyosin. The interaction of calponin with actin inhibits the
actomyosin Mg-ATPase activity.
Belongs to the calponin family.
Tissue Specificity Heart and smooth muscle.
