Calponin is an actin binding protein found in the smooth muscle cells of chicken gizzard. The localization of the protein was examined in bovine platelets, mouse fibroblasts, and the smooth muscle cells of the bovine aorta. Immunoblotting of whole platelet lysates revealed that the antibody to chicken gizzard calponin recognized two proteins with apparent molecular masses of 37 and 23 kDa in the resting state and an additional high-molecular-weight component (approximately 40 kDa) in the… CONTINUE READING
