Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B IH
Caldesmon is an actin and myosin binding protein. It plays a major role in the regulation of smooth muscle and non-muscle contractile events. At least 5 isoforms are known from alternate splicing. High molecular weight h-caldesmon (isoform 1) of 120-150kD is predominantly expressed in smooth muscles. Lower molecular weight caldesmon l-caldesmon (isoforms 2,3,4 and 5) of 61-70kD is more abundant in non-muscle tissues and cells. This antibody reacts specifically with h-caldesmon
