|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. .|
