Description- Calponin is used to characterize the differentiation process of mammary myoepithelial cells in the developing mammary gland and in investigation of the nature of myoepithelial cells also to study the development of human smooth muscle cells. Its high expression is also used as an additional marker of vascular smooth muscle cells, myopithelial cells in normal and benign human mammary gland and in certain stromal myofibroblasts
