Calponin (Cp) is an actin-binding protein first characterized in chicken gizzard smooth muscle (SM). This review discusses the role of Cp in mediating SM contraction, the biochemical process by which Cp facilitates SM contraction and the function of Cp in the brain. Recent work on the role of Cp in pathological states with emphasis on traumatic brain injury… CONTINUE READING
