AIM Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and T (cTnT) are the most important biomarkers in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Nevertheless, they can be elevated in the absence of AMI. It is unclear if such elevations represent irreversible cardiomyocyte-damage or leakage from viable cardiomyocytes. Our objective is to evaluate whether cTn is released(More)
Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) fragmentation in human serum was investigated using a newly developed targeted selected ion monitoring assay, as described in the accompanying article: "Development of a targeted selected ion monitoring assay for the elucidation of protease induced structural changes in cardiac troponin T" [1]. This article presents data describing(More)
UNLABELLED Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) is a highly cardiospecific protein commonly used in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but is subject to proteolytic degradation upon its release in the circulation. In this study, a targeted mass spectrometry assay was developed to detect peptides which are differentially present within the different(More)
Cardiac troponin (cTn) is an important sarcomeric protein complex situated on the thin filament and is involved in the regulation of cardiac muscle contraction. This regulation is primarily controlled by Ca(2+) binding to troponin C and in addition fine-tuned by the posttranslational modification of cTnI and cTnT. The vast majority of cTnT modifications(More)
Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) has been shown to be present in fragmented forms in human serum after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). While calpain-1 and caspase-3 have been identified as intracellular proteases able to cleave the N-terminus of cTnT, it is still unclear which proteases are responsible for the extensive and progressive cTnT fragmentation(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) is the preferred biomarker for the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). It has been suggested that cTnT is present predominantly in fragmented forms in human serum following AMI. In this study, we have used a targeted mass spectrometry assay and epitope mapping using Western blotting to confirm this(More)
Plasma concentrations of cardiac troponins, the preferred biomarkers for the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, are often persistently elevated in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The origin of these elevations is unknown: Is it the heart, by increased release, or the kidneys, by decreased renal elimination? In clinical practice, this(More)
BACKGROUND We have found previously that in acute myocardial infarction (AMI), cardiac troponin T (cTnT) is degraded in a time-dependent pattern. We investigated whether cTnT forms differed in patients with chronic cTnT increases, as seen with renal dysfunction, from those in the acute phase of myocardial infarction. METHODS We separated cTnT forms by gel(More)
