Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat Calponin 1 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat Calponin 1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of MDA-MB-231 human breast cancer cell line, MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line, NMuMG mouse mammary gland epithelial cell line, and A7r5 rat thoracic aortic smooth muscle cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Calponin 1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7900) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Calponin 1 at approximately 40 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Calponin 1 in MDA‑MD‑231 Human Cell Line. Calponin 1 was detected in immersion fixed MDA-MD-231 human breast cancer cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Calponin 1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7900) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the Northern-Lights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Calponin 1 in Human Small Intestine. Calponin 1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human small intestine using Mouse Anti-Human Calponin 1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7900) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to the cytoplasm of smooth muscle cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: Calponin 1

CNN-1 (Calponin 1 [calcium and calmodulin-binding troponin T-like protein]; also Calponin basic, CaP and Calponin H1) is a 32-36 kDa cytoplasmic member of the calponin family of proteins. Although reportedly expressed in fibroblasts and endothelial cells, it actually appears to be restricted to smooth muscle and smooth muscle-like cells such as myoepithelium and myofibroblasts in the adult. CNN-1 interacts with F-actin in a phosphorylation-dependent manner. When nonphosphorylated, CNN-1 blocks actomyosin ATPase activity, contributing to the stabilization of actin stress fiber bundles. Thus, CNN-1 expression inhibits cell motility and the formation of podosomes. Human CNN-1 is 297 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one CH/calponin homology domain (aa 30-127), and three consecutive calponin-like repeats (aa 164-268). The repeats are suggested to mediate actin binding. There are five potential Ser/Thr phosphorylation sites. Full-length human CNN-1 shares 97% aa sequence identity with mouse CNN-1.
