Target

  • FunctionThin 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.
  • Tissue specificitySmooth muscle, and tissues containing significant amounts of smooth muscle.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the calponin family.
    Contains 3 calponin-like repeats.
    Contains 1 CH (calponin-homology) domain.
