|Protein Name||Tropomyosin alpha-1 chain|
|Molecular Weight||28510 MW|
|Protein Function||Binds to actin filaments in muscle and non-muscle cells. Plays a central role, in association with the troponin complex, in the calcium dependent regulation of vertebrate striated muscle contraction. Smooth muscle contraction is regulated by interaction with caldesmon. In non-muscle cells is implicated in stabilizing cytoskeleton actin filaments. Binds calcium.|
|Tissue Specificity||TPM1: Detected in primary breast cancer tissues butundetectable in normal breast tissues in Sudanese patients.Isoform 1 is expressed in adult and fetal skeletal muscle andcardiac tissues, with higher expression levels in the cardiactissues. Isoform 10 is expressed in adult and fetal cardiactissues, but not in skeletal muscle.|
|Subcellular Localization||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton.|
