Troponin I is the subunit of the troponin complex in striated muscle which inhibits actomyosin ATPase activity. We have isolated a full-length cDNA clone for rat cardiac troponin I and determined its nucleic acid sequence. The amino acid sequence deduced from this clone shows 88%-92% similarity with previously reported amino acid sequences for rabbit (Wilkinson and Grand, 1978) and bovine (Leszyk et al.) cardiac troponin I. Examination of cardiac troponin I mRNA abundance during development… CONTINUE READING
