Calreticulin is a high-capacity calcium-binding protein which is present in most tissues and located at the periphery of the endoplasmic (ER) and the sarcoplamic reticulum (SR) membranes. It plays a role in the storage of calcium in the lumen of the ER and SR and is also an important molecular chaperone involved in quality control within secretory pathways . This family also includes calnexin and camlegin.
The Penicillium chrysogenum allergen Pen ch 31 is a calreticulin.
