Family relationships



Calretinin (CR) is a calcium-binding protein that contains the EF-hand domains. It is expressed in a variety of normal and tumorigenic tissues [PMID: 24839578]. CR is a multi-functional protein associated with development, cell proliferation, differentiation, and cell death [PMID: 24550787]. It may be used as a marker in the differential diagnosis of ameloblastoma and keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT) [PMID: 24839578, PMID: 18223328].
