Some Cardiomyopathy-Causing Troponin I Mutations Stabilize a Functional Intermediate Actin State
(East Carolina University, 2009-03-18)
We examined four cardiomyopathy-causing mutations of troponin I that appear to disturb function by altering the distribution of thin filament states. The R193H (mouse) troponin I mutant had greater than normal actin-activated ...
The Distribution Of Regulated Actomyosin States Is Central To Cardiac Muscle Regulation And Disturbance Of This Distribution Leads To Congenital Cardiomyopathies
(East Carolina University, 2009)
Hypertrophic and restrictive cardiomyopathies are congenital cardiac diseases that have an incidence of over one in five hundred and may lead to sudden cardiac death. One of the main impediments to directed treatment is ...
Negative Charges at Protein Kinase C Sites of Troponin I Stabilize the Inactive State of Actin
(East Carolina University, 2008-01-15)
Alterations in the troponin complex can lead to increases or decreases in contractile activity. Most mutations of troponin that cause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy increase the activity of cardiac muscle fibers. In at least ...
