RCAN1 Inhibits calcineurin-dependent transcriptional responses by binding to the catalytic domain of calcineurin A. Could play a role during central nervous system development. Belongs to the RCAN family. Highly expressed heart, brain and skeletal muscle. Also expressed in all other tissues. 4 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
