Human Gene CNN3 (uc001dqz.4) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens calponin 3, acidic (CNN3), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_001839): This gene encodes a protein with a markedly acidic C terminus; the basic N-terminus is highly homologous to the N-terminus of a related gene, CNN1. Members of the CNN gene family all contain similar tandemly repeated motifs. This encoded protein is associated with the cytoskeleton but is not involved in contraction.

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Calponin-3; AltName: Full=Calponin, acidic isoform;
FUNCTION: Thin filament-associated protein that is implicated in the regulation and modulation of smooth muscle contraction. It is capable of binding to actin, calmodulin, troponin C and tropomyosin. The interaction of calponin with actin inhibits the actomyosin Mg-ATPase activity.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in both non-smooth muscle tissues as well as smooth muscle tissues.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the calponin family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 3 calponin-like repeats.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 CH (calponin-homology) domain.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q15417
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
