Calretinin is a calcium-binding protein involved in calcium signaling. It is abundantly expressed throughout the central nervous system, retina and many other tissues. Studies have shown that calretinin may play a role in neuroprotection by buffering intracellular calcium (Lukas and Jones 1994, Weisenhorn et al., 1996). Additionally, calretinin selectively stains mesothelial cells thus making it an important marker for differentiating malignant mesothelioma from carcinomas (Attanoos et al., 2000).
