CNN1 (Calponin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CNN1 include Laryngeal Small Cell Carcinoma and Infantile Digital Fibromatosis. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeletal Signaling and Myometrial Relaxation and Contraction Pathways. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include actin binding and calmodulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is CNN3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CNN1 Gene
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 (By similarity).
