|W||H R (Mk)||Endogenous||40||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human R=Rat Mk=Monkey
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Troponin T (Cardiac) Antibody detects endogenous levels of total cardiac Troponin T protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to a region surrounding Pro69 of human cardiac Troponin T protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of extracts from 293T cells, mock transfected (-) or transfected with a human cardiac Troponin T (isoform 1) construct (+), using Troponin T (Cardiac) Antibody.
Troponin, working in conjunction with tropomyosin, functions as a molecular switch, regulating muscle contraction in response to changes in the intracellular Ca2+ concentration. Troponin consists of three subunits: the Ca2+-binding subunit troponin C (TnC), the tropomyosin-binding subunit troponin T (TnT), and the inhibitory subunit troponin I (TnI) (1). In response to β-adrenergic stimulation of the heart, Ser23 and Ser24 of TnI (cardiac) are phosphorylated by PKA and PKC. This phosphorylation stimulates a conformational change of the regulatory domain of TnC, reduces the association between TnI and TnC, and decreases myofilament Ca2+ sensitivity by reducing the Ca2+ binding affinity of TnC (1-3).
The tropomyosin binding subunit of the troponin complex TnT exists as different isoforms in slow skeletal muscle (ssTnT/TNNT1), fast skeletal muscle (fsTnT/TNNT3) and in cardiac muscle (cTnT/TNNT2). Each of these may also contain multiple alternatively spliced variants. Assays for measuring serum concentrations of cTnT, as well as cTnI, have been reported for analyzing cardiac injury.
