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 Summary 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 and tropomyosin. The interaction of calponin with actin inhibits the actomyosin Mg-ATPase activity (By similarity).
