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 specificityHeart and smooth muscle.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the calponin family. Contains 3 calponin-like repeats. Contains 1 CH (calponin-homology) domain.
