Calponin is a 33 kD thin filament-associated protein that plays a role in regulation of smooth muscle contractility by anchoring myosin to actin. Monoclonal antibody to Calponin in combination with clones SMMS-1(anti-myosin heavy chain antibody) and h-CD (anti-Caldesmon antibody) could be used to distinguish benign and in-situ lesions from invasive carcinomas. Monoclonal antibody to Calponin reacts with vascular and visceral smooth muscle cells, myoepithelial cells in normal and benign human mammary gland, and certain stromal myofibroblasts.
