Technical Data
Caldesmon (CDM, Caldesmon 1, Caldesmon-1, CALD1, H CAD, H-CAD, L-CAD, MGC21352, NAG22)
Caldesmon is a developmentally regulated protein involved in smooth muscle and non-muscle contraction. Two closely related variants of human caldesmon have been identified which differ in their eletrophoretic mobility and cellular distribution. The h-caldesmon variant (120-150kD) is predominantly expressed in smooth muscle whereas l-caldesmon (70-80kD) is found in nonmuscle tissue and cells. Neither of the two variants has been detected in skeletal muscle.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
