Calreticulin

Name: Calreticulin
Description: A multifunctional protein that is found primarily within membrane-bound organelles. In the endoplasmic reticulum it binds to specific N-linked oligosaccharides found on newly-synthesized proteins and functions as a molecular chaperone that may play a role in protein folding or retention and degradation of misfolded proteins. In addition calreticulin is a major storage form for calcium and functions as a calcium-signaling molecule that can regulate intracellular calcium homeostasis (MSH).
Synonym(s): CRP55; Calregulin; Calreticulin precursor; ERp60; HACBP; grp60
Has role: Calcium Binding Protein
