Background of Calmodulin antibody

Calmodulin, calcium-modulated protein, is a calcium-binding protein expressed in all eukaryotic cells. It can bind to and regulate a number of different protein targets, thereby affecting many different cellular functions. Calmodulin mediates processes such as inflammation, metabolism, apoptosis, smooth muscle contraction, intracellular movement, short-term and long-term memory, nerve growth and the immune response. Calmodulin is expressed in many cell types and can have different subcellular locations, including the cytoplasm, within organelles, or associated with the plasma or organelle membranes. Many of the proteins that Calmodulin binds are unable to bind calcium themselves, and as such use Calmodulin as a calcium sensor and signal transducer. Calmodulin can also make use of the calcium stores in the endoplasmic reticulum, and the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Calmodulin undergoes a conformational change upon binding to calcium, which enables it to bind to specific proteins for a specific response. Calmodulin can bind up to four calcium ions, and can undergo post-translational modifications, such as phosphorylation, acetylation, methylation and proteolytic cleavage, each of which has potential to modulate its actions. Calmodulin can also bind to edema factor toxin from the anthrax bacteria. Calmodulin is the archetype of the family of calcium-modulated proteins of which nearly 20 members have been found. Calmodulin contains 149 amino acids and has 4 calcium-binding domains. Its functions include roles in growth and the cell cycle as well as in signal transduction and the synthesis and release of neurotransmitters. Three calmodulin genes (CALM1, CALM2, and CALM3) map to chromosomes 14q24-q31, 2p21.1-p21.3, and 19q13.2-q13.3, respectively.
