Changes in myofibrillar activation and troponin C Ca2+ binding associated with troponin T isoform switching in developing rabbit heart.

Postnatal development of the mammalian heart is associated with changes in the population of isoforms of the thin filament proteins. We correlated the change in thin filament proteins, which occur in rabbit hearts between 5 days and 22 days of age, with changes in Ca2+ dependence of myofibrillar ATPase activity, force generation, and troponin C Ca2+ binding… CONTINUE READING
