Specific antibodies have been used to show that in adult skeletal muscle the slow and fast forms of the components of the troponin complex are located in type I and type II fibres respectively, α-Tropomyosin is restricted to type II cells. During development, as a result of changes in innervation and in certain diseased stages, both the slow and fast polymorphic forms of the troponin components are present in the same cell.
