Tropomyosins constitute a family of highly related actin-binding proteins found in the animal kingdom from yeast to human. In vertebrates, they are encoded by a multigene family where each member can produce several isoforms through alternative splicing and for some of them with alternate promoters. Tropomyosin isoform diversity has considerably increased during evolution from invertebrates to vertebrates and stems from the duplication of ancestral genes. The advance ofgenomic sequence… CONTINUE READING
