Caldesmon: a calmodulin-binding actin-regulatory protein.

The protein caldesmon, originally isolated from smooth muscle tissue where it is the most abundant calmodulin-binding protein, has since been shown to have a wide distribution in actin- and myosin- containing cells where it is localized in sub-cellular structures concerned with motility, shape changes and exo- or endo-cytosis. Caldesmon is believed to be an… CONTINUE READING
