Itis specifically expressed in smooth muscle and binds calmodulin, actin, andtropomyosin. It is able to inhibit the ATPase activity of myosin and is thought to play arole in smooth muscle contraction. Calponin is a smooth muscle specific, actin-,tropomyosin- and calmodulin-binding protein though to be involved in some way in theregulation or modulation of contraction.
Gene Name CNN2Protein Name Calponin-2Gene Full Name Calponin-2Protein Function Thin filament-associated protein that is implicated in theregulation and modulation of smooth muscle contraction. It iscapable of binding to actin, calmodulin, troponin C andtropomyosin. The interaction of calponin with actin inhibits theactomyosin Mg-ATPase activity.SequenceSimilaritiesBelongs to the calponin family.Tissue Specificity Heart and smooth muscle.Uniprot ID Human(Q99439), Mouse(Q08093)Alternative Names Calponin-2|CNN2|Calponin2
