Calmodulin 2, also known as CALM2, is a calmodulin. Calmodulin 2 mediates the control of a large number of enzymes, ion channels and other proteins by Ca(2+). It is involved in a genetic pathway that regulates the centrosome cycle and progression through cytokinesis. Calmodulin 2 gene may be a genetic determinant of hip osteoarthritis (OA). OA is a degenerative disease characterized by gradual loss of articular cartilage and is a leading cause of disability in elderly populations. CALM2 was most abundantly expressed in articular chondrocytes and OA cartilage.
