A cDNA named calmin of approximately 3.2 kb was isolated by RNA differential display applied to developing mouse skin. Calmin cDNA encodes 1021 amino acids with two calponin homology (CH) domains in tandem on the N-terminal side and a transmembrane domain on the C-terminal side. The region covering the CH domains showed a high level of homology with beta-spectrin, alpha-actinin, and dystrophin. Among the proteins with the tandem CH domains, calmin is unique in having a transmembrane domain… CONTINUE READING
