Cardiac TnT is a 37-kDa polypeptide subunit of the myofibrillar regulatory troponin complex (9,11). Because the amino acid sequence is unique to cardiac muscle, it is immunologically possible to differentiate skeletal muscle and cardiac protein isoforms (3,9,12). In the cardiomyocyte, TnT is compartmentalized into a minor cytosolic (5%) and a major myofibrillary bound (95%) fraction (9). When the myocytes are damaged, Gülinnaz ALPER Ömür ERKIZAN Can HASDEMİR Azem AKILLI Taner ONAT Cardiac… CONTINUE READING
