Characterisation of a mutant of barnacle troponin C lacking Ca2+-binding sites at positions II and IV

Abstract

 This study investigates a mutant barnacle troponin C (TnC) protein (BTnC2–4-) in which the Ca2+-binding sites (sites II and IV) have been rendered non-functional. Eliminating Ca2+ binding at both Ca2+-binding sites of barnacle TnC did not prevent the incorporation of BTnC2–4- into TnC-depleted myofibrillar bundles, although, as expected, the mutant was not… (More)
