A protein found in the thin filaments of muscle fibers. It inhibits contraction of the muscle unless its position is modified by TROPONIN.
Filamentous proteins that are the main constituent of the thin filaments of muscle fibers. The filaments (known also as filamentous or F-actin) can be dissociated into their globular subunits; each subunit is composed of a single polypeptide 375 amino acids long. This is known as globular or G-actin. In conjunction with MYOSINS, actin is responsible for the contraction and relaxation of muscle.

Donor site competition is involved in the regulation of alternative splicing of the rat beta-tropomyosin pre-mRNA. (1/1370)

The rat beta-tropomyosin (beta-TM) gene encodes both skeletal muscle beta-TM mRNA and nonmuscle TM-1 mRNA via alternative RNA splicing. This gene contains eleven exons: exons 1-5, 8, and 9 are common to both mRNAs; exons 6 and 11 are used in fibroblasts as well as in smooth muscle, whereas exons 7 and 10 are used in skeletal muscle. Previously we demonstrated that utilization of the 3' splice site of exon 7 is blocked in nonmuscle cells. In this study, we use both in vitro and in vivo methods to investigate the regulation of the 5' splice site of exon 7 in nonmuscle cells. The 5' splice site of exon 7 is used efficiently in the absence of flanking sequences, but its utilization is suppressed almost completely when the upstream exon 6 and intron 6 are present. The suppression of the 5' splice site of exon 7 does not result from the sequences at the 3' end of intron 6 that block the use of the 3' splice site of exon 7. However, mutating two conserved nucleotides GU at the 5' splice site of exon 6 results in the efficient use of the 5' splice site of exon 7. In addition, a mutation that changes the 5' splice site of exon 7 to the consensus U1 snRNA binding site strongly stimulates the splicing of exon 7 to the downstream common exon 8. Collectively, these studies demonstrate that 5' splice site competition is responsible, in part, for the suppression of exon 7 usage in nonmuscle cells.  (+info)

Properties of non-polymerizable tropomyosin obtained by carboxypeptidase A digestion. (2/1370)

Tropomyosin digested with carboxypeptidase A [EC 3.4.12.2] (CTM) shows a lower viscosity than the undigested protein in solution. From the relation between the viscosity decrease and the amount of amino acids liberated from the carboxyl terminus during this digestion, it is inferred that loss of the tri-peptide-Thr-Ser-Ile from the C-terminus is responsible for the decrease in viscosity. The secondary structure of -TM was not affected by the digestion according to circular dichroic measurements. The viscosity of CTM did not increase in methanol-water mixtures, whereas that of tropomyosin increased markedly. These results indicate that polymerizability was lost upon the removal of a small peptide from the C-terminus without change in the secondary structure. A decrease in the viscosity of tropomyosin solutions was observed on the addition of CTM, indicating that CTM interacts with intact tropomyosin. The dependence of the viscosity decrease on the amount of CTM showed that CTM binds tropomyosin in a one-to-one ratio as a result of end-to-end interaction. Since paracrystals having a 400 A repeated band structure could be grown in the presence of Mg ions at neutral pH, side-by-side interactions in CTM molecules remain intact, even though polymerizability is lost. The disc gel electrophoretic pattern showed that troponin could bind to CTM, but no increase in viscosity due to the complex was observed in solution. That is, the C-terminal part of tropomyosin is not required for the formation of the complex. The amount of CTM bound to F-actin was less than half of that bound to undigested tropomyosin, and could be reduced to one-tenth by a washing procedure. In the presence of troponin, however, the amount recovered to the level of tropomyosin normally bound to F-actin. Therefore, it is concluded that troponin is bound in the middle of the tropomyosin molecule and strengthens the binding of tropomyosin to F-actin.  (+info)

Roles for the troponin tail domain in thin filament assembly and regulation. A deletional study of cardiac troponin T. (3/1370)

Striated muscle contraction is regulated by Ca2+ binding to troponin, which has a globular domain and an elongated tail attributable to the NH2-terminal portion of the bovine cardiac troponin T (TnT) subunit. Truncation of the bovine cardiac troponin tail was investigated using recombinant TnT fragments and subunits TnI and TnC. Progressive truncation of the troponin tail caused progressively weaker binding of troponin-tropomyosin to actin and of troponin to actin-tropomyosin. A sharp drop-off in affinity occurred with NH2-terminal deletion of 119 rather than 94 residues. Deletion of 94 residues had no effect on Ca2+-activation of the myosin subfragment 1-thin filament MgATPase rate and did not eliminate cooperative effects of Ca2+ binding. Troponin tail peptide TnT1-153 strongly promoted tropomyosin binding to actin in the absence of TnI or TnC. The results show that the anchoring function of the troponin tail involves interactions with actin as well as with tropomyosin and has comparable importance in the presence or absence of Ca2+. Residues 95-153 are particularly important for anchoring, and residues 95-119 are crucial for function or local folding. Because striated muscle regulation involves switching among the conformational states of the thin filament, regulatory significance for the troponin tail may arise from its prominent contribution to the protein-protein interactions within these conformations.  (+info)

Binding of hnRNP H to an exonic splicing silencer is involved in the regulation of alternative splicing of the rat beta-tropomyosin gene. (4/1370)

In the rat beta-tropomyosin (beta-TM) gene, exons 6 and 7 are spliced alternatively in a mutually exclusive manner. Exon 6 is included in mRNA encoding nonmuscle TM-1, whereas exon 7 is used in mRNA encoding skeletal muscle beta-TM. Previously, we demonstrated that a six nucleotide mutation at the 5' end of exon 7, designated as ex-1, activated exon 7 splicing in nonmuscle cells. In this study, we show that the activating effect of this mutation is not the result of creating an exonic splicing enhancer (ESE) or disrupting a putative secondary structure. The sequence in exon 7 acts as a bona fide exonic splicing silencer (ESS), which is bound specifically by a trans-acting factor. Isolation and peptide sequencing reveal that this factor is hnRNP H, a member of the heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP) family. Binding of hnRNP H correlates with the ESS activity. Furthermore, addition of antibodies that specifically recognizes hnRNP H to the splicing reactions or partial depletion of hnRNP H from nuclear extract activates exon 7 splicing in vitro and this effect can be reversed by addition of purified recombinant hnRNP H. These results indicate that hnRNP H participates in exclusion of exon 7 in nonmuscle cells. The involvement of hnRNP H in the activity of an ESS may represent a prototype for the regulation of tissue- and developmental-specific alternative splicing.  (+info)

Amphidinolide B, a powerful activator of actomyosin ATPase enhances skeletal muscle contraction. (5/1370)

Amphidinolide B caused a concentration-dependent increase in the contractile force of skeletal muscle skinned fibers. The concentration-contractile response curve for external Ca2+ was shifted to the left in a parallel manner, suggesting an increase in Ca2+ sensitivity. Amphidinolide B stimulated the superprecipitation of natural actomyosin. The maximum response of natural actomyosin to Ca2+ in superprecipitation was enhanced by it. Amphidinolide B increased the ATPase activity of myofibrils and natural actomyosin. The ATPase activity of actomyosin reconstituted from actin and myosin was enhanced in a concentration-dependent manner in the presence or absence of troponin-tropomyosin complex. Ca2+-, K+-EDTA- or Mg2+-ATPase of myosin was not affected by amphidinolide B. These results suggest that amphidinolide B enhances an interaction of actin and myosin directly and increases Ca2+ sensitivity of the contractile apparatus mediated through troponin-tropomyosin system, resulting in an increase in the ATPase activity of actomyosin and thus enhances the contractile response of myofilament.  (+info)

Aldolase binding to actin-containing filaments. Formation of paracrystals. (6/1370)

Electron-microscopy observation show that when aldolase binds to F-actin or F-actin-tropomyosin, highly ordered paracrystalline structures are formed consisting of tightly packed filament bundles cross-banded at 36 nm intervals. Morphologically different paracrystalline arrays are formed between aldolase and F-actin-tropomyosin-troponin. The filament bundles are far more extensive and are characterized by a prominent cross-striation at 38nm intervals. It is suggested that this reflects an interaction between troponin and aldolase.  (+info)

Exonic splicing enhancers contribute to the use of both 3' and 5' splice site usage of rat beta-tropomyosin pre-mRNA. (7/1370)

The rat beta-tropomyosin gene encodes two tissue-specific isoforms that contain the internal, mutually exclusive exons 6 (nonmuscle/smooth muscle) and 7 (skeletal muscle). We previously demonstrated that the 3' splice site of exon 6 can be activated by introducing a 9-nt polyuridine tract at its 3' splice site, or by strengthening the 5' splice site to a U1 consensus binding site, or by joining exon 6 to the downstream common exon 8. Examination of sequences within exons 6 and 8 revealed the presence of two purine-rich motifs in exon 6 and three purine-rich motifs in exon 8 that could potentially represent exonic splicing enhancers (ESEs). In this report we carried out substitution mutagenesis of these elements and show that some of them play a critical role in the splice site usage of exon 6 in vitro and in vivo. Using UV crosslinking, we have identified SF2/ASF as one of the cellular factors that binds to these motifs. Furthermore, we show that substrates that have mutated ESEs are blocked prior to A-complex formation, supporting a role for SF2/ASF binding to the ESEs during the commitment step in splicing. Using pre-mRNA substrates containing exons 5 through 8, we show that the ESEs within exon 6 also play a role in cooperation between the 3' and 5' splice sites flanking this exon. The splicing of exon 6 to 8 (i.e., 5' splice site usage of exon 6) was enhanced with pre-mRNAs containing either the polyuridine tract in the 3' splice site or consensus sequence in the 5' splice site around exon 6. We show that the ESEs in exon 6 are required for this effect. However, the ESEs are not required when both the polyuridine and consensus splice site sequences around exon 6 were present in the same pre-mRNA. These results support and extend the exon-definition hypothesis and demonstrate that sequences at the 3' splice site can facilitate use of a downstream 5' splice site. In addition, the data support the hypothesis that ESEs can compensate for weak splice sites, such as those found in alternatively spliced exons, thereby providing a target for regulation.  (+info)

Regulatory protein of vascular smooth muscle. (8/1370)

Preparations of native tropomyosin from the muscles of bovine aorta and carotid artery resensitized myosin B from either tissue. Neither preparation had any effect on desensitized myosin B from skeletal muscle but native tropomyosin from skeletal muscle could resensitize desensitized myosin B from vascular smooth muscles.  (+info)

Tropomyosin is a rod-shaped molecule composed of two intertwined polypeptides with a length approximately equal to that of seven actin molecules. Chains of tropomyosin molecules are arranged end to end along the actin thin filament. These tropomyosin molecules partially cover the myosin-binding site on each actin molecule, thereby preventing the cross-bridges from making contact with actin. Each tropomyosin molecule is held in this blocking position by troponin, a smaller, globular protein that is bound to both tropomyosin and actin. One molecule of troponin binds to each molecule of tropomyosin and regulates the access to myosin-binding sites on the seven actin molecules in contact with tropomyosin. This is the status of a resting muscle fiber; troponin and tropomyosin cooperatively block the interaction of cross-bridges with the thin filament. ...
Phenotypically altered C2 myoblast cells, generated by the stable transfection of human nonmuscle actin genes (Schevzov, G., C. Lloyd, and P. Gunning. 1992. J. Cell Biol. 117:775-786), exhibit a differential pattern of tropomyosin cellular organization and isoform gene expression. The beta-actin transfectants displaying a threefold increase in the cell surface area, showed no significant changes in the pattern of organization of the high M(r) tropomyosin isoform, Tm 2, or the low M(r) tropomyosin isoform, Tm 5. In contrast, the gamma- and beta sm-actin gene transfectants, exhibiting a twofold decrease in the cell surface area, had an altered organization of Tm 2 but not Tm 5. In these actin transfectants, Tm 2 did not preferentially segregate into stress fiber-like structures and the intensity of staining was greatly diminished. Conversely, a well-defined stress fiber-like organization of Tm 5 was observed. The pattern of organization of these tropomyosin isoforms correlated with their ...
Tropomyosin is a two-stranded alpha-helical coiled coil protein found in cell cytoskeletons. All organisms contain structures that provide physical integrity to their cells. These structures are collectively known as the cytoskeleton, and one of the most ancient systems is based on filamentous polymers of the protein actin. A second polymer of the protein, tropomyosin, is an integral part of most actin filaments in animals. Tropomyosins are a large family of integral components of actin filaments that play a critical role in regulating the function of actin filaments in both muscle and nonmuscle cells. These proteins consist of rod-shaped coiled-coil hetero- or homo-dimers that lie along the α-helical groove of most actin filaments. Interaction occurs along the length of the actin filament, with dimers aligning in a head-to-tail fashion. Tropomyosins are often categorised into two groups, muscle tropomyosin isoforms and nonmuscle tropomyosin isoforms. Muscle tropomyosin isoforms are involved in ...

In myotonic ADR mice that are homozygous for a defect in the muscular chloride channel gene adr/Clc-1, the hyperexcitability of fast muscles is associated with secondary changes in gene expression and fibre type composition, cDNA clones derived from a set of genes down regulated in fast muscles of the myotonic ADR mouse were isolated by a subtractive cloning procedure. A total of 1200 clones were analysed for high expression in fast muscle of wild type and low expression in mutant mouse. Differential transcript levels were verified by northern blot hybridizations. The identities of the corresponding transcripts were determined by sequencing as myosin heavy chain IIB, alpha-tropomyosin, troponin C, a Ca2+ ATPase and parvalbumin mRNAs. Of these, mRNAs for parvalbumin and myosin heavy chain IIB were drastically downregulated in myotonic muscle (to < 10% of control). A full length cDNA clone for skeletal muscle alpha-tropomyosin was homologous to the mouse fibroblast tropomyosin isoform 2, except ...

Precise orchestration of actin polymer into filaments with distinct characteristics of stability, bundling, and branching underpins cell migration. A key regulator of actin filament specialization is the tropomyosin family of actin-associating proteins. This multi-isoform family of proteins assemble into polymers that lie in the major groove of polymerized actin filaments, which in turn determine the association of molecules that control actin filament organization. This suggests that tropomyosins may be important regulators of actin function during physiological processes dependent on cell migration, such as wound healing. We have therefore analyzed the requirement for tropomyosin isoform expression in a mouse model of cutaneous wound healing. We find that mice in which the 9D exon from the TPM3/γTm tropomyosin gene is deleted (γ9D -/-) exhibit a more rapid wound-healing response 7 days after wounding compared with wild-type mice. Accelerated wound healing was not associated with increased ...
We have demonstrated by haplotype analysis that individual II-3 passed a normal copy of the α-tropomyosin gene to an unaffected child (III-4) and, on the same segment of chromosome 15, a mutated copy to another son (III-2), who developed hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This observation demonstrates that a de novo α-tropomyosin gene mutation, Asp175Asn, occurred in individual III-2, who has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (Fig 1A⇑). This finding shows conclusively that this mutation alone is sufficient to cause the disease and excludes the possibility that another abnormality in this or a linked gene is responsible. The Asp175Asn mutation in the α-tropomyosin gene of individual III-2 was present in three different tissues: cardiac myocytes, lymphocytes, and gametes. This suggests that the mutation arose either in development of the gamete (ie, during spermatogenesis in the father, II-3) or very early in embryonic development. We cannot determine whether the probands father (individual II-3) ...
We used differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and circular dichroism (CD) to investigate thermal unfolding of recombinant fibroblast isoforms of alpha-tropomyosin (Tm) in comparison with that of smooth muscle Tm. These two nonmuscle Tm isoforms 5a and 5b differ internally only by exons 6b/6a, and they both differ from smooth muscle Tm by the N-terminal exon 1b which replaces the muscle-specific exons 1a and 2a. We show that the presence of exon 1b dramatically decreases the measurable calorimetric enthalpy of the thermal unfolding of Tm observed with DSC, although it has no influence on the alpha-helix content of Tm or on the end-to-end interaction between Tm dimers. The results suggest that a significant part of the molecule of fibroblast Tm (but not smooth muscle Tm) unfolds noncooperatively, with the enthalpy no longer visible in the cooperative thermal transitions measured. On the other hand, both DSC and CD studies show that replacement of muscle exons 1a and 2a by nonmuscle exon 1b not ...
In this study we report on the developmental and regional expression of two brain-specific isoforms of tropomyosin, TMBr-1 and TMBr-3, that are generated from the rat alpha-tropomyosin gene via the use of alternative promoters and alternative RNA splicing. Western blot analysis using an exon-specific peptide polyclonal antibody revealed that the two isoforms are differentially expressed in development with TMBr-3 appearing in the embryonic brain at 16 days of gestation, followed by the expression of TMBr-1 at 20 days after birth. TMBr-3 was detected in all brain regions examined, whereas TMBr-1 was detected predominantly in brain areas that derived from the prosencephalon. Immunocytochemical studies on mixed primary cultures made from rat embryonic midbrain indicate that expression of the brain-specific epitope is restricted to neurons. The developmental pattern and neuronal localization of these forms of tropomyosin suggest that these isoforms have a specialized role in the development and ...
A protein found in the actin filaments in muscles. The molecule consists of two elongated strands that run along the length of the filament. When the muscle is at rest, the tropomyosin molecule covers the binding site of the actin molecule, where interaction with myosin occurs. On contraction of the muscle, the tropomyosin is displaced by another protein, troponin, allowing the interaction of actin with myosin. See sliding filament theory. ...
Ultracentrifugal studies of mixtures of aldolase and the troponin-tropomyosin complex from bovine muscle showed the existence of a labile interaction between these two myofibrillar constituents in imidazole buffers, pH6.8, I 0.02-0.10 (mol/l), and the suppression of the reaction by fructose 1,6-diphosphate. Analysis of the sedimentation-velocity patterns suggests the binding of more than 2 molecules of troponin-tropomyosin/molecule of aldolase. The results illustrate the necessity of considering additional or alternative sites to F-actin to account for the observed binding of aldolase to the thin filaments of skeletal muscle.. ...
In this study, the Ephrussi lab shows that an atypical tropomyosin isoform is a direct (m)RNA binding protein that binds preferentially to the dimerizing oskar 3 UTR and is a component of the transported oskar mRNPs within the female germ-line. In the absence of this tropomyosin isoform, Khc fails to get loaded onto oskar mRNA, which explains the reduced motility and ultimately the failure in oskar localization. This Tm1-I/C dependent recruitment is rather inefficient - only a small fraction of oskar mRNPs acquire Khc - but dynamic, enabling the posterior-ward transport of virtually all oskar mRNPs. Most importantly, however, the Tm1-I/C recruited Khc is inactive. Activation of the motor only commences in the oocyte during mid-oogenesis - possibly to prevent interference with the other transporter of oskar, cytoplasmic dynein - and requires the previously identified exon junction complex (EJC) and associated spliced oskar localization element (SOLE)..

N2 - The ends of striated muscle tropomyosin (TM) are integral for thin filament cooperativity, determining the cooperative unit size and regulating the affinity of TM for actin. We hypothesized that altering the α-TM carboxy terminal overlap end to the β-TM counterpart would affect the amino-terminal association, which would alter the end-to-end interactions of TM molecules in the thin filament regulatory strand and affect the mechanisms of cardiac muscle contraction.

Myosin was distributed in a speckled pattern that extended radially from the granulomere. F-actin demonstrated cable-networks. Tropomyosin and alpha-actinin occurred in a punctuate distribution, and vinculin was localized at adhesion sites. Although myosin, F-actin, alpha-actinin, tropomyosin, and vinculin were not studied in resting platelets, our data support the idea that these contractile proteins are reorganized and reassembled in activated platelets during platelet function.
Injury to lens epithelial cells (LECs) leads to epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) with resultant fibrosis. The tropomyosin (Tpm) family of cytoskeleton proteins is involved in regulating and stabilizing actin microfilaments. Aberrant expression of Tpms leads to abnormal morphological changes with disintegration of epithelial integrity. The EMT of LECs has been proposed as a major cause of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) after cataract surgery. Using in vivo rodent PCO and human cataractous LECs, we demonstrated that the aberrant expression of rat Tpm and human Tpm1α/2β suggested their association in remodelling of the actin cytoskeleton during EMT of LECs. Expression analysis from abnormally growing LECs after lens extraction revealed elevated expression of α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA), a marker for EMT. Importantly, these cells displayed increased expression of Tpm1α/2β following EMT/PCO formation. Expression of Tpm1α/2β was up-regulated in LECs isolated from cataractous ...
The one-bead-one-compound (OBOC) combinatorial peptide library is a powerful tool to identify ligand and receptor interactions. Here, we applied the OBOC library technology to identify mimotopes specific to the immunoglobulin E (IgE) epitopes of the major shellfish allergen tropomyosin. OBOC peptide libraries with 8-12 amino acid residues were screened with serum samples from patients with shellfish allergy for IgE mimotopes of tropomyosin. Twenty-five mimotopes were identified from the screening and their binding reactivity to tropomyosin-specific IgE was confirmed by peptide ELISA. These mimotopes could be divided into seven clusters based on sequence homology, and epitope mapping by EpiSearch of the clustered mimotopes was performed to characterize and confirm the validity of mimotopes. Five out of six of the predicted epitopes were found to overlap with previously identified epitopes of tropomyosin. To further confirm the mimicry potential of mimotopes, BALB/c mice were immunized with ...
Part A 1.) What are the changes in phenotypes that you observe between group A and group B? In group A, in which Tropomyosin 4 was over-expressed, the stringed phenotype was the most common among the cells observed. In the control group (group B) the pronged phenotype was the most common. 2.) How does Tm4 mediate these changes? Tm4 mediates these changes due to its effect on actin filaments within the cells. Tropomyosin, of which Tm4 is an isoform, is a protein that binds to actin filaments and promotes their stability. Actin filaments are important structural components of neurites, which are projections of the cell body of the neuron. [2] Due to the overexpression of the tropomyosin isoform in group A the higher percentage of cells with the stringed phenotype makes sense. The greater expression of tropomyosin means that there is a higher level of stabilized actin filaments, which would explain the presence of more cells with long neurites than the control group. The lower levels of ...
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic cardiac disease, which affects the structure of heart muscle tissue. The clinical symptoms include arrhythmias, progressive heart failure, and even sudden cardiac death but the mutation carrier can also be totally asymptomatic. To date, over 1400 mutations have been linked to HCM, mostly in genes encoding for sarcomeric proteins. However, the pathophysiological mechanisms of the disease are still largely unknown. Two founder mutations for HCM in Finland are located in myosin-binding protein C (MYBPC3-Gln1061X) and α-tropomyosin (TPM1-Asp175Asn) genes. We studied the properties of HCM cardiomyocytes (CMs) derived from patient-specific human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) carrying either MYBPC3-Gln1061X or TPM1-Asp175Asn mutation. Both types of HCM-CMs displayed pathological phenotype of HCM but, more importantly, we found differences between CMs carrying either MYBPC3-Gln1061X or TPM1-Asp175Asn gene mutation in their cellular size, Ca2+ ...

This gene encodes a member of the tropomyosin family of actin-binding proteins involved in the contractile system of striated and smooth muscles and the cytoskeleton of non-muscle cells. Tropomyosins are dimers of coiled-coil proteins that polymerize end-to-end along the major groove in most actin filaments. They provide stability to the filaments and regulate access of other actin-binding proteins. In muscle cells, they regulate muscle contraction by controlling the binding of myosin heads to the actin filament. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009 ...
The actin microfilaments are composed of a two stranded polymer of actin and most filaments also contain polymers of the rod shaped tropomyosin running along the major groove in the filament. As you heard in the lecture on Microfilaments, the different tropomyosin isoforms have the ability to direct the assembly of specific cellular structures. Previous experiments have been performed in which the neuroblastoma derived cell line, B35 (Schubert D, etal., 1974) is given a gene construct driving the expression of a specific tropomyosin. Cells are then isolated which express the introduced tropomyosin and analysed for changes in phenotype. ...

The data are considered in the context of prominent three-state models of thin-filament regulation. In the biochemical three-state model, advanced by McKillop and Geeves15 and refined by Geeves and Lehrer,33 tropomyosin can exist in equilibrium between three states. In the absence of Ca2+, troponin stabilizes tropomyosin in a state that blocks myosin binding to actin (blocked state). In the presence of Ca2+, the equilibrium shifts and tropomyosin adopts a state that allows myosin to bind strongly to actin (closed state). In the presence of myosin, equilibrium shifts yet again and tropomyosin adopts a state that permits myosin to bind actin, hydrolyze ATP, and cooperatively propagate further binding of myosin to actin (open state). Vibert and colleagues32 have proposed a structural three-state model in which the Ca2+-free troponin constrains tropomyosin in a position on the inner edge of the outer domain of actin that sterically occludes myosin-binding sites (EGTA state). In the presence of Ca2+, ...

Although cryo-EM reconstruction is currently the method of choice to resolve macromolecular structure and is optimal for defining troponin-tropomyosin structure and position on actin filaments in specific thin filament end states, it does not readily capture dynamics about those states or transitions between states. Moreover, blotting thin filament samples into thin films before freezing may distort actin-tropomyosin mechanics (Galkin et al., 2012), and in addition, minimal hydration ensuing at or near the air-water interface during preparation (Noble et al., 2018a,b) may distort weak and transient interaction pathways on the actin surface. As an alternative, we therefore have begun to extend understanding beyond high-resolution 3-D EM, by using MD to determine potential energetically favorable pathways between thin filament regulatory states. We had to overcome a number of technical drawbacks inherent to current MD protocols. Most significantly, the size of the actin-tropomyosin complex and the ...

The formation of a neuronal network depends on the proper development and targeting of neurons within the network. Here, we show that Psidin, in a similar manner to its recently described role in oocyte migration, acts as a constituent part of the actin machinery in the context of neuronal circuit formation in vivo. Furthermore, it functionally links to known actin regulators, in particular LimK and nonmuscle Tropomyosin. In addition, we define a novel role of Psidin in cell survival of neurons during development. Our data strongly suggest that Psidin uses two modes of activity. First, it prevents apoptosis of developing olfactory neurons as a noncatalytic subunit of the NatB complex. Second, it regulates axon targeting via its interaction with cytoskeleton regulators. Regarding the first role as part of the NatB complex, our results prove an evolutionarily conserved role of Psidin that has been predicted so far merely on the basis of in silico comparisons (see below) (Brennan et al., ...

Identifying causal variants and genes from human genetic studies of hematopoietic traits is important to enumerate basic regulatory mechanisms underlying these traits, and could ultimately augment translational efforts to generate platelets and/or red blood cells in vitro. To identify putative causal genes from these data, we performed computational modeling using available genome-wide association datasets for platelet and red blood cell traits. Our model identified a joint collection of genomic features enriched at established trait associations and plausible candidate variants. Additional studies associating variation at these loci with change in gene expression highlighted Tropomyosin 1 (TPM1) among our top-ranked candidate genes. CRISPR/Cas9-mediated TPM1 knockout in human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) enhanced hematopoietic progenitor development, increasing total megakaryocyte and erythroid cell yields. Our findings may help explain human genetic associations and identify a novel genetic

Actin- and myosin-binding protein implicated in the regulation of actomyosin interactions in smooth muscle and nonmuscle cells (could act as a bridge between myosin and actin filaments). Stimulates actin binding of tropomyosin which increases the stabilization of actin filament structure. In muscle tissues, inhibits the actomyosin ATPase by binding to F-actin. This inhibition is attenuated by calcium-calmodulin and is potentiated by tropomyosin. Interacts with actin, myosin, two molecules of tropomyosin and with calmodulin. Also play an essential role during cellular mitosis and receptor capping. Involved in Schwann cell migration during peripheral nerve regeneration (By similarity ...
The myosin fibers (on actin) are blocked by tropomyosin which is anchored by troponin. Ca2+ binds to troponin causing a conformational change thus moving tropomyosin allowing the myosin binding site to become open. These binding sites form a cross bridge with actin with the help of ADP/Pi. The release of this ADP and phosphate powers a stroke between the myosin and actin filaments causing a pass of the long to shortened sacromere. ADP is released and a new ATP binds to myosin, detacing (relaxing) myosin for next stroke. When ATP is converted to ADP/Pi, another stroke occurs and the cycle repeats until Ca2+ or ATP runs out ...
Strong interactions between cross-bridges (XB) and regulatory units (RU) lead to a steep response of cardiac muscle to an increase in intracellular calcium. We developed a model to quantitatively assess the influence of different types of interactions within the sarcomere on the properties of cardiac muscle. In the model, the ensembles consisting of cross-bridge groups connected by elastic tropomyosin are introduced, and their dynamics is described by a set of partial differential equations. Through large scans in the free energy landscape, we demonstrate the different influence of RU-RU, XB-XB, and XB-RU interactions on the cooperativity coefficient of calcium binding, developed maximal force, and calcium sensitivity. The model solution was fitted to reproduce experimental data on force development during isometric contraction, shortening in physiological contraction, and ATP consumption by acto-myosin. On the basis of the fits, we quantified the free energy change introduced through RU-RU and ...
You will construct three models in this chapter. These models are provided as sample models with model names tutorial Ca-F regulatory, tutorial SL dependent(0) and tutorial SL dependent(1).. Here you will include the force regulatory unit which responds to the calcium ion concentration [Ca2+] in its force generation. The actin filament is divided into segments which are referred as to the T/T units. Here the first and second Ts represent the troponin and tropomyosin, respectively. The arrangement of the tropomyosin is controlled by the troponin that reacts with calcium ions and changes the configuration of tropomyosin to expose the biding sites. Here you will create the sarcomere model shown below by starting from the sample model tutorial energy aware MH-3.. ...

Binds to actin filaments in muscle and non-muscle cells. Plays a central role, in association with the troponin complex, in the calcium dependent regulation of vertebrate striated muscle contraction. Smooth muscle contraction is regulated by interaction with caldesmon. In non-muscle cells is implicated in stabilizing cytoskeleton actin filaments.
Calcium pumps transport calcium back into sarcoplasmic reticulum, ending an action potential and causing relaxation. The process of muscle contraction will continue until the action potential is terminated. Relaxation is achieved when calcium pumps have actively transported calcium back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum, reversing the changes that previously occurred in troponin. Tropomyosin is now back in its original position covering the myosin binding sites on actin, preventing crossbridges and power stroke cycling. - Stock Video Clip K005/0663

When you contract a muscle, you are shortening sarcomeres that slide between two filaments, one thick and one thin. The sliding is produced by cross bridges that come out from both the myosin and actin. Myosine heads are located on each end of a sarcomere which pulls actin towards the center. The myosine heads split up ATP into ADP and P. After the myosine heads attach to a actin protien it forms a cross bridge causing dephosphorylated making a change in the myosin creating a power stroke. This adds to the force pulling the thin filament towards the center. More cross bridges are made to make the force stronger. Attached to actin is a protein called tropomyosin which then has a protein called tropinin attached to it. They are the switch that controls wheather the muscle is going to contract or relax. In order to relax, tropomyosin has to be removed and it can only be removed by tropinin and Ca2+ working together. Each muscle cells contains a cytoplasm which in turn contains the sarcoplasm. The ...

To gain insight into the mechanisms of thin filament assembly and the role of tropomodulin therein, we have characterized the temporal appearance, biosynthesis and mechanisms of assembly of tropomodulin onto the pointed ends of thin filaments during the formation of striated myofibrils in primary embryonic chick cardiomyocyte cultures. Our results demonstrate that tropomodulin is not assembled ...
Nemaline myopathies are diseases characterized by the presence in muscle fibres of pathognomonic rod bodies. These are composed largely of alpha-actinin and actin. We have identified a missense mutation in the alpha-tropomyosin gene, TPM3, which segregates completely with the disease in a family whose autosomal dominant nemaline myopathy we had previously localized to chromosome 1p13-q25. The mutation substitutes an arginine residue for a highly conserved methionine in a putative actin-binding site near the N terminus of the alpha-tropomyosin. The mutation may strengthen tropomyosin - actin binding, leading to rod body formation, by adding a further basic residue to the postulated actin-binding motif.
Tropomyosin from the fast skeletal (trunk) muscle of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is an alpha-type isoform. It shares ~93% identity with a counterpart from rabbit skeletal muscle (20 amino acid substitutions out of a total of 284) but is less thermally stable. -- An interesting aspect of the small heterogeneity is the replacement of lysine-77 in rabbit with threonine in salmon. In the case of the mammalian protein, the lysine in question is positioned to form ion pairs with aspartate-80 in the next turn of the same helix and also with glutamate 82 in the opposing helix of the coiled coil. Thus, at neutral pH, salmon tropomyosin loses two potential charge-charge (ion pair) interactions. The contribution of residue-77 to the properties of salmon tropomyosin has been investigated by mutating it to the amino acid in rabbit using site directed mutagenesis, followed by circular dichroism, differential scanning calorimetry, affinity chromatography and limited proteolysis. A major finding of this ...

The effect of free Mg2+ on the inhibition of the acto-S1 ATPase by rabbit skeletal troponin (Tn) was studied at S1 to actin ratios ranging from 0.17:1 to 2.5:1. These studies were performed using two Mg2+ concentrations: 2.5 mM Mg2+-2.5 mM ATP, conditions considered to have low free Mg2+; and 5.0 mM Mg2+-2.5 mM ATP, conditions providing a high free Mg2+ concentration of ∼2.5 mM. In the presence of high free Mg2+ (2.5 mM ATP-5.0 mM MgCl2) the Tn inhibition of acto-S1-TM ATPase increased by approximately 40-50% ...
Production of mRNA in eukaryotic cells involves not only transcription but also various processing reactions such as splicing. Recent experiments have indicated that there are direct physical connections between components of the transcription and processing machinery, supporting previous suggestions that pre-mRNA splicing occurs co-transcriptionally. Here we have used a novel functional approach to demonstrate co-transcriptional regulation of alternative splicing. Exon 3 of the alpha-tropomyosin gene is specifically repressed in smooth muscle cells. By delaying synthesis of an essential downstream inhibitory element, we show that the decision to splice or repress exon 3 occurs during a limited window of opportunity following transcription, indicating that splice site selection proceeds rapidly after transcription.
© 2015 Elsevier Inc. Abstract We have investigated the effect of the E41K, R91G, and E139del β-tropomyosin (TM) mutations that cause congenital myopathy on the position of TM and orientation of actin monomers and myosin heads at different mimicked stages of the ATPase cycle in troponin-free ghost muscle fibers by polarized fluorimetry. A multi-step shifting of wild-type TM to the filament center accompanied by an increase in the amount of switched on actin monomers and the strongly bound myosin heads was observed during the ATPase cycle. The R91G mutation shifts TM further towards the inner and outer domains of actin at the strong- and weak-binding stages, respectively. The E139del mutation retains TM near the inner domains, while the E41K mutation captures it near the outer domains. The E41K and R91G mutations can induce the strong binding of myosin heads to actin, when TM is located near the outer domains. The E139del mutation inhibits the amount of strongly bound myosin heads throughout the ATPase
Tropomyosin, in association with the troponin complex, plays a central role in the calcium dependent regulation of muscle contraction.
Loading of the appropriate transport machinery on mRNPs is critical to achieve correct localization and, consequently, localized translation of the transcript. Although mRNA transport has been extensively studied over the last two decades, the recruitment of plus‐end‐directed kinesin motors to mRNPs and their regulation remains poorly understood (Medioni et al, 2012).. Here, we have shown that the majority of kinesin‐1 motor associated with oskar mRNA is recruited by Tropomyosin1‐I/C, a non‐canonical RNA binding protein, which explains the mislocalization of oskar mRNA when Tm1‐I/C is lacking (Erdelyi et al, 1995; Veeranan‐Karmegam et al, 2016; and this study). We found that this recruitment occurs early in the cytoplasmic life of the mRNA, upon its nucleo‐cytoplasmic export, in the perinuclear cytoplasm of the nurse cells, where dimerization of oskar mRNA molecules via their 3′UTRs commences (Little et al, 2015). Our observations are consistent with an ergonomic ...

The calponin family of F-actin-, tropomyosin- and calmodulin-binding proteins currently comprises three genetic variants. Their functional roles implicated from in vitro studies include the regulation of actomyosin interactions in smooth muscle cells (h1 calponin), cytoskeletal organisation in non-muscle cells (h2 calponin) and the control of neurite outgrowth (acidic calponin). We have now investigated the effects of calponin (CaP) isoforms and their C-terminal deletion mutants on the actin cytoskeleton by time lapse video microscopy of GFP fusion proteins in living smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts. It is shown that h1 CaP associates with the actin stress fibers in the more central part of the cell, whereas h2 CaP localizes to the ends of stress fibres and in the motile lamellipodial protrusions of spreading cells. Cells expressing h2 CaP spread more efficiently than those expressing h1 CaP and expression of GFP h1 CaP resulted in reduced cell motility in wound healing experiments. Notably, ...
Tropomyosin alpha-1 chain is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TPM1 gene. This gene is a member of the tropomyosin (Tm) family of highly conserved, widely distributed actin-binding proteins involved in the contractile system of striated and smooth muscles and the cytoskeleton of non-muscle cells. Tm is a 32.7 kDa protein composed of 284 amino acids. Tm is a flexible protein homodimer or heterodimer composed of two alpha-helical chains, which adopt a bent coiled coil conformation to wrap around the seven actin molecules in a functional unit of muscle. It is polymerized end to end along the two grooves of actin filaments and provides stability to the filaments. Human striated muscles express protein from the TPM1 (α-Tm), TPM2 (β-Tm) and TPM3 (γ-Tm) genes, with α-Tm being the predominant isoform in striated muscle. In human cardiac muscle the ratio of α-Tm to β-Tm is roughly 5:1. Tm functions in association with the troponin complex to regulate the calcium-dependent interaction of ...

Researchers at Osaka University used electron cryomicroscopy (CryoEM) to image essential cardiac muscle components, known as thin filaments, with unprecedented resolution. They also discovered the mechanism by which these filaments regulate heartbeat via cardiac muscle contractions in the presence or absence of calcium ions by changing their conformations.
All the models are similar in that they are structured around a functional unit of troponin, tropomyosin and actin. Tropomyosin can exist in four states, two permissive or two non-permissive (referring to whether or not the actin sites are available for binding to myosin and hence cross bridge formation). Depending on the model, one or more cross bridges exist, and these are either weakly-bound (non-force generating) or strongly bound (force generating). The paper (cited below) tests the behaviours of the five models of force generation in cardiac myocytes. The first two models provide a baseline of performance for comparison. Models 3 to 5 are developed to incorporate more cooperative mechanisms. From the results of these simulations, which were compared to and consistent with experimental data, it is hypothesised that multiple mechanisms of cooperativity may coexist and contribute to the responses of cardiac muscle. ...
Abstract: In this paper the friction and wear characteristics of vinylester and cenosphere reinforced vinylester composites have been investigated under dry sliding conditions, under different applied normal load and sliding speed. Wear tests were carried using pin on a rotating disc under ambient conditions. Tests were conducted at normal loads 10, 30, 50 and 70 N and under sliding velocity of 1.88, 3.14, 4.39 and 5.65 m/s. The results showed that the coefficient of friction decreases with the increase in applied normal load values under dry conditions. On the other hand for pure vinylester specific wear rate increases with increase in applied normal load. However the specific wear rate for 2%, 6%, 10% and 15% cenosphere reinforced vinylester composite decreases with the increase in applied normal load under dry conditions. The results showed that with increase in the applied normal load and sliding speed the coefficient of friction and spe- cific wear rate decreases under dry sliding ...

This paper provides a comprehensive explanation of striated muscle mechanics and contraction on the basis of filament rotations. Helical proteins, particularly the coiled-coils of tropomyosin, myosin and α-actinin, shorten their H-bonds cooperatively and produce torque and filament rotations when the Coulombic net-charge repulsion of their highly charged side-chains is diminished by interaction with ions.

This study aims to evaluate a new ointment to treat an inherited skin tumour condition called cylindromatosis. Patients from families with this condition carry an error in their DNA (CYLD mutation) that results in the development of multiple skin tumours on the face, scalp and trunk. These tumours are disfiguring, can be painful, and may ulcerate and bleed. Surgery is the only available treatment, and up to 1 in 4 patients with this condition undergo removal of their entire scalp to manage this condition. We have recently discovered an abnormal signal in the tumour cells called TRK. This signal is recognised to give tumour cells the ability to survive, and in laboratory tests blocking it with drugs called TRK inhibitors results in the tumour cells dying. We propose a study of an ointment form of TRK inhibitor as a means to reduce tumour growth in these patients. We have partnered with a drug company (Creabilis) who have already produced this ointment (called CT327) for trials in skin conditions. ...
