Calcium binding to troponin C. II. A Ca2+ ion titration study with a Ca2+ ion sensitive electrode.

Abstract

The effects of pH,Mg2+, and ionic strength on Ca2+ binding to rabbit skeletal troponin C were studied by using a Ca2+ sensitive electrode. Troponin C has two high affinity and two low affinity sites and the Ca2+ affinity of both sites was increased by increasing pH in a pH range from pH 5.6 to 10.4. The affinity was decreased by increasing ionic strength… (More)
