You can check the tissue specificity below for information on selecting positive and negative control.

Gene Name Calm1
Protein Name Calmodulin
Molecular Weight 16838 MW
Protein 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 (By similarity). .
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the calmodulin family.
Subcellular Localization Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole. Distributed throughout the cell during interphase, but during mitosis becomes dramatically localized to the spindle poles and the spindle microtubules. .

Background for Calmodulin

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.
