While in most muscles contraction is triggered by calcium effluxes, insect flight muscles are also activated by mechanical stretch. We are interested in understanding the role that the troponin C protein, usually the calcium sensor, plays in stretch activation. In the flight muscles of Lethocerus, a giant water bug often used as a model system, there are two isoforms of TnC, F1 and F2, present in an approximately 10:1 ratio. F1 TnC is responsible for activating the muscle following a stretch… Expand
