Background Smoothelin is a constituent of the smooth muscle cell (SMC) cytoskeleton. Antibodies directed to smoothelin are a useful tool to monitor SMC differentiation. Smoothelin is exclusively expressed in fully differentiated (contractile) SMCs. RNA and protein analyses revealed a broad species distribution of this protein. Cells with SMC-like characteristics, such as myofibroblasts and myoepithelial cells, as well as skeletal and cardiac muscle do not contain smoothelin. Confocal scanning laser microscopy of tissue sections, as well as transfection studies, show a filamentous organization of smoothelin that is different from that of desmin, vimentin. Smoothelin colocalizes with actin stress fibers. In immunoblots two molecular weight isoforms are detected i.e. a 59 kDa isoform specific for visceral SMC, and an isoform with a molecular weight of approximately 100 kDa in vascular SMC. A single copy gene encodes human smoothelin, which is located on chromosome 22. The monoclonal smoothelin antibody R4A is useful to discriminate fully differentiated, contractile SMCs from proliferative SMCs. The distribution of smoothelin-positive cells indicates a correlation between smoothelin expression and smooth muscle tissue contractility. Smoothelin is a useful tool in the evaluation of atherosclerotic lesions.
