Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy mutations from different functional regions of troponin T result in different effects on the pH and Ca2+ sensitivity of cardiac muscle contraction.

Abstract

To understand the molecular function of troponin T (TnT) in the Ca(2+) regulation of muscle contraction as well as the molecular pathogenesis of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC), eight FHC-linked TnT mutations, which are located in different functional regions of human cardiac TnT (HCTnT), were produced, and their structural and functional… (More)
