Has chaperone-like activity, preventing aggregation of various proteins under a wide range of stress conditions Binds to actin filaments. Plays a central role, in association with the troponin complex, in the calcium dependent regulation of vertebrate striated muscle contraction Calcium/phospholipid-binding protein which promotes membrane fusion and is involved in exocytosis. This protein regulates phospholipase A2 activity. It seems to bind from two to four calcium ions with high affinity Inhibitor of phospholipase A2, also possesses anti-coagulant properties.
