Calponin Information for Pathologists
Actin filament associated regulatory protein. h1 (basic) isoform is smooth muscle specific, but a late stage smooth muscle marker; described below. h2 isoform is found in smooth muscle and non muscle cells; not described below. Uses by pathologists Identify myoepithelial cells in breast lesions (Histopathology 2005;47:202).
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Identify myoepithelial cells in breast lesions (Histopathology 2005;47:202). Help differentiate breast collagenous spherulosis (positive) from adenoid cystic carcinoma (negative, Mod Pathol 2006;19:1351), although adenoid cystic carcinoma is calponin positive in salivary gland tumors (Arch Pathol Lab Med 1999;123:801).
