Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CNN3 Gene
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.

GeneCards Summary for CNN3 Gene
CNN3 (Calponin 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include actin binding and calmodulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is CNN1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CNN3 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.
