|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||16838 Da|
|Other Names||Calmodulin, CaM, CALM1, CALM, CAM, CAM1|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in the C-terminus of human Calmodulin was used as immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Calmodulin Antibody (CaM) (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||CALM, CAM, CAM1|
|Function||Calmodulin mediates the control of a large number of enzymes, ion channels, aquaporins and other proteins by Ca(2+). Among the enzymes to be stimulated by the calmodulin-Ca(2+) complex are a number of protein kinases and phosphatases. Together with CCP110 and centrin, is involved in a genetic pathway that regulates the centrosome cycle and progression through cytokinesis.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole. Note=Distributed throughout the cell during interphase, but during mitosis becomes dramatically localized to the spindle poles and the spindle microtubules|

Calmoduin (CaM) is a calcium modulator protein and a transducer of calcium signals (1-2). Upon calcium binding, calmodulin undergoes conformational changes and binds and modulates a diverse array of proteins. Calcium-bound CaM (Ca2+-CaM) can assume a variety of shapes depending on the target (3). Ca2+-CaM binds many kinases, phosphatases, signaling proteins, and structural proteins affecting a wide variety of processes including neurotransmitter release, muscle contraction, metabolism, apoptosis, inflammation, membrane protein organization, and cytoskeleton movement (2, 4-5).
