Troponin has been prepared from the asynchronous flight muscle of Lethocerus (water bug) taking special care to prevent proteolysis. The regulatory complex contained tropomyosin and troponin components. The troponin components were Tn-C (18,000 Mr), Tn-T (apparent Mr 53,000) and a heavy component, Tn-H (apparent Mr 80,000). The troponin was tightly bound to tropomyosin and could not be dissociated from it in non-denaturing conditions. A complex of Tn-T, Tn-H and tropomyosin inhibited actomyosin… Expand
MECHANICS AND PROTEIN CONTENT OF INSECT FLIGHT MUSCLES
TLDR
It is concluded that Tn-H is not sufficient for stretch- activation, but it may enhance stretch-activation, particularly when it is in the form found in the Diptera, and it may be able to modulate Ca2+-activated and stretch-activated tension. Expand
Troponin I: Inhibitor or facilitator
TLDR
TN-I occurs as a homologous group of proteins which form part of the regulatory system of vertebrate and invertebrate striated muscle and induces changes in those proteins with which it interacts, that are essential for their function. Expand

TLDR
Troponin T has recently aroused clinical interest in its potential for detecting myocardial damage and the association of mutations in the cardiac isoform with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Expand
The regulation of myosin binding to actin filaments by Lethocerus troponin.
TLDR
It is shown here that thin filaments assembled from rabbit actin and Lethocerus tropomyosin (Tm) and troponin ( Tn) regulate the binding of rabbit myosin to rabbitActin in much the same way as the mammalian regulatory proteins. Expand
Interaction of troponin-H and glutathione S-transferase-2 in the indirect flight muscles of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Drosophila indirect flight muscles contain a 35 kDa protein which cross-reacts with antibodies to the IFM specific protein troponin-H isoform 34 (TnH-34) that is glutathione S-transferase-2 (GST-2), and it is concluded that GST-2 in the thin filament is stabilized there by interaction with TnH.

Invertebrate troponin: Insights into the evolution and regulation of striated muscle contraction.
TLDR
This focused review studied the primary structure features of invertebrate troponin subunits in comparisons with the vertebrate counterparts to understand the divergence as well as conservation of the structures of TnI and TnT in invertebrates and vertebrates. Expand
Troponin C in different insect muscle types: identification of two isoforms in Lethocerus, Drosophila and Anopheles that are specific to asynchronous flight muscle in the adult insect.
TLDR
It is suggested that initial activation of IFM is by Ca(2+) binding to troponin with the two-site TnC, and full activation is through the action of stretch on the complex with the one-site isoform. Expand
Ca2+-dependent Muscle Dysfunction Caused by Mutation of the Caenorhabditis elegans Troponin T-1 Gene
TLDR
Examining the functions of troponin T in Caenorhabditis elegans embryonic body wall muscle provides new in vivo evidence that full inhibition of thin filaments in low [Ca2+] does not require TnT, andalyses of animals doubly mutant for CeTnT-1 and for genes required for Ca2+ signaling support that CeTtN-1 phenotypes are dependent on Ca2-independent signaling. Expand
Binding Properties of the Calcium-Activated F2 Isoform of Lethocerus Troponin C
TLDR
The presence of two Ca2+ ions, one in each of the globular domains, increases the affinity for TnH by at least 1 order of magnitude, which could account for stretch activation in insect flight muscles. Expand

Hybrid troponin reconstituted from vertebrate and arthropod subunits
TLDR
In spite of the overall similarity of vertebrate and arthropod troponin, invertebrate Troponin differs from vertebrate trop onin in calcium binding properties, and binds one-half to one-quarter of the calcium in conditions where the thin filament is maximally switchedon. Expand

TLDR
Results obtained indicated that the smaller subfragment was formed by digestion of the larger sub fragment of troponin-T2, each of which could be isolated by the use of DEAE-Sephadex. Expand

Structure of co-crystals of tropomyosin and troponin
TLDR
The results show that the amino-terminal tail end of TnT spans the head-to-tail joint of the tropomyosin filaments, and that the 'head' region of the whole troponin complex binds -200 A away near residues 150–180 of the Troponin molecule. Expand

TLDR
The binding of rabbit skeletal muscle troponin-T and several of its fragments to various types of tropomyosin immobilized on Sepharose 4B affinity columns equilibrated with 0.1 M NaCl, pH 7.0 buffer is investigated and results are consistent with a structural interpretation of a two-site model of Troponin attachment to alpha-tropomyOSin.

TLDR
Based on the present results and the work of others, the binding region for Tn-I includes residues 159-259 and perhaps extends into the highly helical CB2 region (residues 71-151) of Tn -T. Expand
Arthrin: a new actin-like protein in insect flight muscle.
TLDR
Electron microscopy of negatively stained specimens showed that arthrin and actin filaments were similar in structure and that arhrin could be decorated by rabbit subfragment-1 to form normal-looking arrowheads and Optical diffraction showed that the structure of the paracrystals was similar to those formed from actin.

TLDR
Tronin reconstituted with oxidized troponin-I did not confer calcium sensitivity on actomyosin ATPase; activity was restored by reducing the complex and the circular dichroism was restored to that of native Troponin. Expand
