Differences in myofilament calcium sensitivity in rat psoas fibers reconstituted with troponin T isoforms containing the alpha- and beta-exons.

Abstract

The carboxy terminus of fast skeletal muscle troponin T (fsTnT) is highly conserved. However, mutually exclusive splicing of exons 16 and 17 in the fsTnT gene results in the expression of either the alpha- or beta-fsTnT isoform. The alpha-isoform is expressed only in adult fast skeletal muscle, whereas the beta-isoform is expressed in varying quantities… (More)
