Two cDNAs encoding troponin C (TnC) isoforms are isolated from the scallop, Patinopecten yessoensis, striated adductor muscle. The sequential differences between these isoforms, named TnC(long) and TnC(short), are restricted in several residues of the C-terminal region. TnC(long) is commonly expressed in both the striated and the smooth adductor muscle; however, TnC(short) is only in the striated adductor muscle. The TnC gene is a single copy gene in the scallop, thus they are expressed through… CONTINUE READING
