Measurable and quantifiable biological parameters (e.g., specific enzyme concentration, specific hormone concentration, specific gene phenotype distribution in a population, presence of biological substances) which serve as indices for health- and physiology-related assessments, such as disease risk, psychiatric disorders, environmental exposure and its effects, disease diagnosis, metabolic processes, substance abuse, pregnancy, cell line development, epidemiologic studies, etc.
A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.
A transferase that catalyzes formation of PHOSPHOCREATINE from ATP + CREATINE. The reaction stores ATP energy as phosphocreatine. Three cytoplasmic ISOENZYMES have been identified in human tissues: the MM type from SKELETAL MUSCLE, the MB type from myocardial tissue and the BB type from nervous tissue as well as a mitochondrial isoenzyme. Macro-creatine kinase refers to creatine kinase complexed with other serum proteins.
A diverse superfamily of proteins that function as translocating proteins. They share the common characteristics of being able to bind ACTINS and hydrolyze MgATP. Myosins generally consist of heavy chains which are involved in locomotion, and light chains which are involved in regulation. Within the structure of myosin heavy chain are three domains: the head, the neck and the tail. The head region of the heavy chain contains the actin binding domain and MgATPase domain which provides energy for locomotion. The neck region is involved in binding the light-chains. The tail region provides the anchoring point that maintains the position of the heavy chain. The superfamily of myosins is organized into structural classes based upon the type and arrangement of the subunits they contain.
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.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
A powerful flexor of the thigh at the hip joint (psoas major) and a weak flexor of the trunk and lumbar spinal column (psoas minor). Psoas is derived from the Greek "psoa", the plural meaning "muscles of the loin". It is a common site of infection manifesting as abscess (PSOAS ABSCESS). The psoas muscles and their fibers are also used frequently in experiments in muscle physiology.
Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.

Predictive Value of Tests
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Parts of the myosin molecule resulting from cleavage by proteolytic enzymes (PAPAIN; TRYPSIN; or CHYMOTRYPSIN) at well-localized regions. Study of these isolated fragments helps to delineate the functional roles of different parts of myosin. Two of the most common subfragments are myosin S-1 and myosin S-2. S-1 contains the heads of the heavy chains plus the light chains and S-2 contains part of the double-stranded, alpha-helical, heavy chain tail (myosin rod).
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).

A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
A heat-stable, low-molecular-weight activator protein found mainly in the brain and heart. The binding of calcium ions to this protein allows this protein to bind to cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases and to adenyl cyclase with subsequent activation. Thereby this protein modulates cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP levels.

Properties of non-polymerizable tropomyosin obtained by carboxypeptidase A digestion. (1/1215)Tropomyosin digested with carboxypeptidase A [EC 18.104.22.168] (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)
Ca2+ and cross-bridge-induced changes in troponin C in skinned skeletal muscle fibers: effects of force inhibition. (2/1215)Changes in skeletal troponin C (sTnC) structure during thin filament activation by Ca2+ and strongly bound cross-bridge states were monitored by measuring the linear dichroism of the 5' isomer of iodoacetamidotetramethylrhodamine (5'IATR), attached to Cys98 (sTnC-5'ATR), in sTnC-5'ATR reconstituted single skinned fibers from rabbit psoas muscle. To isolate the effects of Ca2+ and cross-bridge binding on sTnC structure, maximum Ca2+-activated force was inhibited with 0.5 mM AlF4- or with 30 mM 2,3 butanedione-monoxime (BDM) during measurements of the Ca2+ dependence of force and dichroism. Dichroism was 0.08 +/- 0.01 (+/- SEM, n = 9) in relaxing solution (pCa 9.2) and decreased to 0.004 +/- 0.002 (+/- SEM, n = 9) at pCa 4.0. Force and dichroism had similar Ca2+ sensitivities. Force inhibition with BDM caused no change in the amplitude and Ca2+ sensitivity of dichroism. Similarly, inhibition of force at pCa 4.0 with 0.5 mM AlF4- decreased force to 0.04 +/- 0.01 of maximum (+/- SEM, n = 3), and dichroism was 0.04 +/- 0.03 (+/- SEM, n = 3) of the value at pCa 9.2 and unchanged relative to the corresponding normalized value at pCa 4.0 (0.11 +/- 0.05, +/- SEM; n = 3). Inhibition of force with AlF4- also had no effect when sTnC structure was monitored by labeling with either 5-dimethylamino-1-napthalenylsulfonylaziridine (DANZ) or 4-(N-(iodoacetoxy)ethyl-N-methyl)amino-7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazole (NBD). Increasing sarcomere length from 2.5 to 3.6 microm caused force (pCa 4.0) to decrease, but had no effect on dichroism. In contrast, rigor cross-bridge attachment caused dichroism at pCa 9.2 to decrease to 0.56 +/- 0.03 (+/- SEM, n = 5) of the value at pCa 9. 2, and force was 0.51 +/- 0.04 (+/- SEM, n = 6) of pCa 4.0 control. At pCa 4.0 in rigor, dichroism decreased further to 0.19 +/- 0.03 (+/- SEM, n = 6), slightly above the pCa 4.0 control level; force was 0.66 +/- 0.04 of pCa 4.0 control. These results indicate that cross-bridge binding in the rigor state alters sTnC structure, whereas cycling cross-bridges have little influence at either submaximum or maximum activating [Ca2+].

Amphidinolide B, a powerful activator of actomyosin ATPase enhances skeletal muscle contraction. (3/1215)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.

The amino acid sequence of rabbit cardiac troponin I. (4/1215)The complete amino acid sequence of troponin I from rabbit cardiac muscle was determined by the isolation of four unique CNBr fragments, together with overlapping tryptic peptides containing radioactive methionine residues. Overlap data for residues 35-36, 93-94 and 140-145 are incomplete, the sequence at these positions being based on homology with the sequence of the fast-skeletal-muscle protein. Cardiac troponin I is a single polypeptide chain of 206 residues with mol.wt. 23550 and an extinction coefficient, E 1%,1cm/280, of 4.37. The protein has a net positive charge of 14 and is thus somewhat more basic than troponin I from fast-skeletal muscle. Comparison of the sequences of troponin I from cardiac and fast skeletal muscle show that the cardiac protein has 26 extra residues at the N-terminus which account for the larger size of the protein. In the remainder of sequence there is a considerable degree of homology, this being greater in the C-terminal two-thirds of the molecule. The region in the cardiac protein corresponding to the peptide with inhibitory activity from the fast-skeletal-muscle protein is very similar and it seems unlikely that this is the cause of the difference in inhibitory activity between the two proteins. The region responsible for binding troponin C, however, possesses a lower degree of homology. Detailed evidence on which the sequence is based has been deposited as Supplementary Publication SUP 50072 (20 pages), at the British Library Lending Division, Boston Spa, Wetherby, West Yorkshire LS23 7QB, U.K., from whom copies may be obtained on the terms given in Biochem.

Aldolase binding to actin-containing filaments. Formation of paracrystals. (5/1215)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.

Parvalbumin from rabbit muscle. Isolation and primary structure. (6/1215)A parvalbumin, with its characteristic low molecular weight (approximately 12000) acidic isoelectric point (approximately 5.5), ultraviolet spectrum (maxm 259 nm) and Ca2+-binding capacity (2 mol/mol protein) has been isolated from rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) muscle. Its primary structure has been determined from a study of its tryptic peptides and of overlapping peptides generated by limited tryptic digestion and by chymotryptic and thermolytic digestions of the protein. The amino acid sequence so obtained is considered in comparison with those known for other parvalbumin and for rabbit troponin C. (+info)
Characterization of the cardiac holotroponin complex reconstituted from native cardiac troponin T and recombinant I and C. (7/1215)Cardiac troponin I (cTnI), the inhibitory subunit of cardiac troponin (cTn), is phosphorylated by the cAMP-dependent protein kinase A at two adjacently located serine residues within the heart-specific N-terminal elongation. Four different phosphorylation states can be formed. To investigate each monophosphorylated form cTnI mutants, in which each of the two serine residues is replaced by an alanine, were generated. These mutants, as well as the wild-type cardiac troponin I (cTnI-WT) have been expressed in Escherichia coli, purified and characterized by isoelectric focusing, MS and CD-spectroscopy. Monophosphorylation induces conformational changes within cTnI that are different from those induced by bisphosphorylation. Functionality was assessed by measuring the calcium dependence of myosin S1 binding to thin filaments containing reconstituted native, wild-type and mutant cTn complexes. In all cases a functional holotroponin complex was obtained. Upon bisphosphorylation of cTnI-WT the pCa curve was shifted to the right to the same extent as that observed with bisphosphosphorylated native cTnI. However, the absolute values for the midpoints were higher when recombinant cTn subunits were used for reconstitution. Reconstitution itself changed the calcium affinity of cTnC: pCa50-values were higher than those obtained with the native cardiac holotroponin complex. Apparently only bisphosphorylation of cTnI influences the calcium sensitivity of the thin filament, thus monophosphorylation has a function different from that of bisphosphorylation; this function has not yet been identified.

Comparison of putative cooperative mechanisms in cardiac muscle: length dependence and dynamic responses. (8/1215)Length-dependent steady-state and dynamic responses of five models of isometric force generation in cardiac myofilaments were compared with similar experimental data from the literature. The models were constructed by assuming different subsets of three putative cooperative mechanisms. Cooperative mechanism 1 holds that cross-bridge binding increases the affinity of troponin for Ca2+. In the models, cooperative mechanism 1 can produce steep force-Ca2+ (F-Ca) relations, but apparent cooperativity is highest at midlevel Ca2+ concentrations. During twitches, cooperative mechanism 1 has the effect of increasing latency to peak as the magnitude of force increases, an effect not seen experimentally. Cooperative mechanism 2 holds that the binding of a cross bridge increases the rate of formation of neighboring cross bridges and that multiple cross bridges can maintain activation of the thin filament in the absence of Ca2+. Only cooperative mechanism 2 can produce sarcomere length (SL)-dependent prolongation of twitches, but this mechanism has little effect on steady-state F-Ca relations. Cooperativity mechanism 3 is designed to simulate end-to-end interactions between adjacent troponin and tropomyosin. This mechanism can produce steep F-Ca relations with appropriate SL-dependent changes in Ca2+ sensitivity. With the assumption that tropomyosin shifting is faster than cross-bridge cycling, cooperative mechanism 3 produces twitches where latency to peak is independent of the magnitude of force, as seen experimentally.

Troponin I - Wikipedia
Troponin I is a cardiac and skeletal muscle protein useful in the laboratory diagnosis of heart attack. It occurs in different plasma concentration but the same circumstances as troponin T - either test can be performed for confirmation of cardiac muscle damage and laboratories usually offer one test or the other. Troponin I is a part of the troponin protein complex, where it binds to actin in thin myofilaments to hold the actin-tropomyosin complex in place. Because of it, myosin cannot bind actin in relaxed muscle. When calcium binds to the troponin C it causes conformational changes which lead to dislocation of troponin I and finally tropomyosin leaves the binding site for myosin on actin leading to contraction of muscle. The letter I is given due to its inhibitory character. The tissue specific subtypes are: Slow-twitch skeletal muscle isoform troponin I, TNNI1 (1q31.3, 191042) Fast-twitch skeletal muscle isoform troponin I, TNNI2 (11p15.5, 191043) Cardiac troponin I, TNNI3 (19q13.4, 191044) ...

We investigated the effect of 7 Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)-causing mutations in troponin T (TnT) on troponin function in thin filaments reconstituted with actin and human cardiac tropomyosin. We used the quantitative in vitro motility assay to study Ca(2+)-regulation of unloaded movement and its modulation by troponin I phosphorylation. Troponin from a patient with the K280N TnT mutation showed no difference in Ca(2+)-sensitivity when compared with donor heart troponin and the Ca(2+)-sensitivity was also independent of the troponin I phosphorylation level (uncoupled). The recombinant K280N TnT mutation increased Ca(2+)-sensitivity 1.7-fold and was also uncoupled. The R92Q TnT mutation in troponin from transgenic mouse increased Ca(2+)-sensitivity and was also completely uncoupled. Five TnT mutations (Δ14, Δ28 + 7, ΔE160, S179F and K273E) studied in recombinant troponin increased Ca(2+)-sensitivity and were all fully uncoupled. Thus, for HCM-causing mutations in TnT, Ca(2+)-sensitisation

Prognostic implications of elevated troponin in patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome but no critical epicardial...
We have previously demonstrated the strong prognostic value of cardiac troponin in patients with high clinical suspicion for non-ST-segment elevation ACS (14). The present study demonstrates that, in the important group of patients presenting with symptoms of ACS who were later found to not have angiographically significant CAD, the presence of an elevated troponin is also associated with an adverse prognosis. This finding challenges the idea that these are false-positive troponin results and that these patients may be regarded as low-risk for subsequent cardiovascular events. Elevation of troponin in these patients may result from coronary atherothrombosis not evident using standard angiography or from other ischemic and non-ischemic mechanisms.. In the current study, 6% of patients who satisfied clinical criteria for ACS and had elevated troponin early after presentation were found not to have significant angiographic coronary stenosis. Despite the absence of significant coronary stenosis, ...
Troponin assay use in the emergency department for management of patients with potential acute coronary syndrome: current use...
The timing of troponin elevation after an ischemic event is another topic of research, as serial troponin measurements have been found to be an effective tool to detect developing myocardial injury. Initial research on troponins has shown cTnT and cTnI are most commonly elevated 4 to 9 hours after myocardial injury, with a peak at 12 to 24 hours. These enzymes may remain elevated in the blood for 7 to 14 days . Thus, the time from onset of chest pain is crucially important for ED practitioners to discern, as troponin elevations may not be detected with commonly used assays if the insult occurred immediately prior (i.e., less than two hours) to presentation. To account for this discrepancy, practitioners will frequently observe patients who lack the electrocardiographic (ECG) changes indicative of ST-segment myocardial infarctions in addition to having a negative initial troponin. The observation period usually involves repeat physical examinations and telemetry monitoring along with repeat ...
TROPONIN and TROPONIN CARDIAC I and T: function, metabolism and normal values - Examievalori
When measured with the old assays, elevated troponin levels could be detected between 6 and 12 hours after the myocardial damage event, peaking at 24 hours followed by a gradual decline after two weeks.. In recent years there has been the introduction of a new type of troponin, troponin to high sensitivity, with different sensitivity and specificity, which made it possible to overcome the large limit of classical troponins of being detectable in the blood only several hours after the ischemic event and which improved the diagnostic accuracy, being able to diagnose subendocardial or transmural infarction with two samples veins performed just 3 hours apart from each other.. It was a remarkable one increase of the sensitivity for IMA (from 63.7% to 90.7%), compared to a slight reduction of the specificity (from 97.2% to 90.7%). However, the tissue specificity of troponin hs for damage to cardiomyocytes, which is always very high, must always be distinguished from clinical specificity for AMI, which ...

Inhibition of actin-myosin subfragment 1 ATPase activity by troponin I and IC: Relationship to the thin filament states of...
Troponin I (TnI) is the component of the troponin complex that inhibits actomyosin ATPase activity, and Ca2+ binding to the troponin C (TnC) component reverses the inhibition. Effects of the binding of TnI and the TnI-TnC (TnIC) complex to actin-tropomyosin (actinTm) on ATPase and on the binding kinetics of myosin subfragment 1 (S1) were studied to clarify the mechanism of the inhibition. TnI and TnIC in the absence of Ca2+ bind to actinTm and inhibit ATPase to similar levels with a stoichiometry of one TnI or one TnIC per one Tm and seven actin subunits. Tnf also binds to actinTmTn in the presence of Ca2+ with a stoichiometry and inhibition constant similar to those for the binding to actinTm of TnI and Tn in the absence of Ca2+. Thus, in the presence of Ca2+, the intrinsic TnI which is released from its binding site on actinTm does not interfere with the binding of an extra molecule of TnI to actinTmTn. The rate of Si binding to actinTmTnI and to actinTmTnTnI in the presence of Ca2+ was ...

Frontiers | The Importance of Intrinsically Disordered Segments of Cardiac Troponin in Modulating Function by Phosphorylation...
Troponin plays a central role in regulation of muscle contraction. It is the Ca2+ switch of striated muscles including the heart and in the cardiac muscle is physiologically modulated by PKA-dependent phosphorylation at Ser22 and 23. Many cardiomyopathy-related mutations affect Ca2+ regulation and/or disrupt the relationship between Ca2+ binding and phosphorylation. Unlike the mechanism of heart activation, the modulation of Ca2+-sensitivity by phosphorylation of the cardiac specific N-terminal segment of TnI (1-30) is structurally subtle and has proven hard to investigate. The crystal structure of cardiac troponin describes only the relatively stable core of the molecule and the crucial mobile parts of the molecule are missing including TnI C terminal region, TnI (1-30), TnI (134-149) (inhibitory peptide) and the C-terminal 28 amino acids of TnT that are intrinsically disordered.Recent studies over the years have been performed to answer this matter by building structural models of cardiac troponin

What are other reasons other than heart attack for increased level of troponin - What are other reasons other than heart attack for increased level of troponin? Any heart problem. Troponin is an enzyme released by damaged heart muscle. While the major cause is a heart attack, and large increases are usually due to this, almost any condition affecting the heart can cause small increases. Viral infections of the heart, pulmonary embolus or medial procedures such as angioplasty often result in increases of troponin.

Abstract 9671: Molecular Dynamics and Calcium Binding Studies on Troponin Mutations Causing Dilated Cardiomyopathy | Circulation
Troponin (Tn), part of the thin filament in cardiomyocytes, plays an important role in calcium signaling events in cardiac muscle contraction. It acts as a Ca2+-dependent switch, activating and deactivating the myofilament leading to contraction and relaxation of the muscle cell. The most common form of heart muscle disease, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), is characterized by dilatation of the heart and impaired systolic function of the left or both ventricles. Several Tn mutations that cause DCM have been reported. We used microsecond timescale molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to elucidate the molecular action of three troponin C (TnC) DCM mutations - D75Y, E59D and G159D - with particular focus on calculating the free energy difference between the open and closed states of the TnC as well as average times between opening events. We found free energy differences between the open and closed states of ~8 kcal/mol for the wildtype system. While G159D causes a significant increase in the free ...
Drug maker, Roche, is recalling two of its Elecsys Troponin Immunoassays, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) just announced. The recall has been deemed a Class I by the agency, its most severe and involving a situation in which there exists a reasonable probability that the use of, or exposure to, the recalled, violative product-in this case, the Roche Elecsys Troponin Assays-will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.. The Elecsys Troponin I and Elecsys Troponin I STAT Immunoassays are used to determine heart damage as an aid when diagnosing a heart attack..

Abstract 15220: Myocardial Biomarker Testing With Troponin I: Are We Ordering Too Many Studies? | Circulation
Background: Myocardial biomarker testing with some form of troponin assay has become standard of care for diagnosing acute myocardial infarction (AMI) among patients presenting with symptoms consistent with acute coronary syndrome. However, in order to not miss anyone, troponin assays may be ordered on patients presenting with non-cardiac diagnoses, but the frequency, justification and outcome of this practice are unknown.. Methods: During the year 2007, in a large multi-hospital integrated health system, all patients with a troponin-I (trpI) measurement obtained were studied. Baseline clinical characteristics, primary and secondary admit and discharge diagnoses, as well as maximum trpI were collected and analyzed. A trpI level ,0.4 was considered consistent with AMI. Independent predictors of a positive trpI were determined by logistic regression analysis.. Results: At least one trpI test was obtained in a total of 22,410 unique encounters in 18,730 unique patients (age=67±16 years, ...

Quality Control - MTAKHI
Many manufacturers cut corners or take shortcuts in an attempt to keep costs down. This often results in unrealistic values, parameters imbalances, a frequent lack of differentiation between levels and ultimately in controls that do not completely cover the clinical range. In many situations these inadequacies force laboratories to purchase additional and often expensive low or high level controls. For example Troponin levels in the level 1 control from some manufacturers do not adequately cover the cut-off levels used in diagnosis. This often results in the need for additional controls to cover these lifesaving concentrations. The levels of Troponin I and Troponin T in our Cardiac and Liquid Cardiac controls are in line with internationally recommended levels ...

Troponin finnes i tre isoformer - C, I og T. De to siste finnes bare i myokard, og påvisning i serum må derfor skyldes lekkasje fra kardiomyocyttene. De har således en meget høy spesifisitet for myokardskade. Den klart viktigste indikasjonen for å måle troponin I eller T hos en pasient, er å diagnostisere iskemisk myokardskade, dvs. koronare hendelser. Bøhmer nevner at forhøyede troponinverdier kan forekomme ved andre lidelser enn akutt koronar syndrom, slik som nedsatt nyrefunksjon eller nyresvikt. Hun går ikke nærmere inn på hvilke andre tilstander eller sykdommer som er knyttet til forhøyet troponin. Kronisk obstruktiv lungesykdom (kols) er en av disse lidelsene. Nyere studier har vist at pasienter med kols har høyere troponinnivåer enn friske (1, 2), at det blant pasienter med kols er en negativ assosiasjon mellom troponinnivået og lungefunksjon målt ved spirometri (1-3), og at pasienter som er sykehusinnlagt pga. kolsforverring har høyere troponinverdier enn i stabil fase ...

In November 2016, NICE reviewed this guidance and recommended that it should be withdrawn. The guidance was published in June 2011 and recommended that further research was carried out on the technology. There was insufficient evidence on its use in clinical practice to recommend adoption. On reviewing the guidance in 2016, NICE determined that: The comparator in the original guidance, standard serial troponin testing, was changed in 2014 to high sensitivity troponin testing which expert advice indicated is now widespread in the NHS The clinical pathway in the original evaluation has significantly changed and the original scope is no longer valid.

DIGITAL.CSIC: Two functionally identical modular enhancers in Drosophila troponin T gene establish the correct protein levels...
The control of muscle-specific expression is one of the principal mechanisms by which diversity is generated among muscle types. In an attempt to elucidate the regulatory mechanisms that control fiber diversity in any given muscle, we have focused our attention on the transcriptional regulation of the Drosophila Troponin T gene. Two, nonredundant, functionally identical, enhancer-like elements activate Troponin T transcription independently in all major muscles of the embryo and larvae as well as in adult somatic and visceral muscles. Here, we propose that the differential but concerted interaction of these two elements underlies the mechanism by which a particular muscle-type establish the correct levels of Troponin T expression, adapting these levels to their specific needs. This mechanism is not exclusive to the Troponin T gene, but is also relevant to the muscle-specific Troponin I gene. In conjunction with in vivo transgenic studies, an in silico analysis of the Troponin T enhancer-like ...
Expression and functional properties of four slow skeletal troponin T isoforms in rat muscles - Kischel Philippe
en] We investigated the expression and functional properties of slow skeletal troponin T(sTnT) isoforms in rat skeletal muscles. Four sTnT cDNAs were cloned from the slow soleus muscle. Three isoforms were found to be similar to sTnT1, sTnT2, and sTnT3 isoforms described in mouse muscles. A new rat isoform, with a molecular weight slightly higher than that of sTnT3, was discovered. This fourth isoform had never been detected previously in any skeletal muscle and was therefore called sTnTx. From both expression pattern and functional measurements, it appears that sTnT isoforms can be separated into two classes, high-molecular-weight ( sTnT1, sTnT2) and low-molecular-weight ( sTnTx, sTnT3) isoforms. By comparison to the apparent migration pattern of the four recombinant sTnT isoforms, the newly described low-molecular-weight sTnTx isoform appeared predominantly and typically expressed in fast skeletal muscles, whereas the higher-molecular-weight isoforms were more abundant in slow soleus muscle. ...
Interaction of aldolase with the troponin-tropomyosin complex of bovine muscle | Biochemical Journal
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.. ...

Troponin C type 1 - Wikipedia
Troponin C, also known as TN-C or TnC, is a protein that resides in the troponin complex on actin thin filaments of striated muscle (cardiac, fast-twitch skeletal, or slow-twitch skeletal) and is responsible for binding calcium to activate muscle contraction. Troponin C is encoded by the TNNC1 gene in humans for both cardiac and slow skeletal muscle. Cardiac troponin C (cTnC) is a 161-amino acid protein organized into two domains: the regulatory N-terminal domain (cNTnC, residues 1-86), the structural C-terminal domain (cCTnC, residues 93-161), and a flexible linker connecting the two domains (residues 87-92). Each domain contains two EF-hands, Ca2+-binding helix-loop-helix motifs exemplified by proteins like parvalbumin. and calmodulin. In cCTnC the two EF-hand motifs constitute two high affinity Ca2+-binding sites. that are occupied at all physiologically relevant calcium concentrations. In contrast, only the second EF-hand in cNTnC binds Ca2+ with low affinity, while the first EF-hand ...
Intraoperative cardiac troponin T release and lactate metabolism during coronary artery surgery: comparison of beating heart...
Beating heart surgery allows coronary artery bypass grafting to be performed without the attendant disadvantages, both cerebral and myocardial, of cardiopulmonary bypass.16 It was our aim in the present study to compare the extent of myocardial damage associated with these two techniques using cardiac troponin T,13 17 18 a specific marker with negligible cross reactivity with skeletal muscle.10 In addition, we aimed to increase the sensitivity of this method still further by estimating cardiac troponin T in both coronary sinus and peripheral artery, so that myocardial release could be detected.7 Using this approach, we found that all patients undergoing beating heart coronary artery surgery had detectable cardiac troponin T in coronary sinus blood within 20 minutes of release of the coronary snare. In contrast, even by 20 minutes peripheral arterial concentrations were consistently less raised, and remained less than coronary sinus concentrations throughout the intraoperative period, showing net ...

Molecular Dynamics Studies of Point Mutations of Cardiac Troponin C and Annexin
Calcium binding proteins are biologically important for their ability to convert changes in calcium ion concentration to functional changes in proteins. All calcium binding proteins use a calcium sensing motif that changes the protein conformation and dynamics when associated with calcium ions. Dysfunction in calcium binding proteins has been linked to many diseases such as cancer and heart disease. In this study, models of mutated proteins were generated and Molecular Dynamics simulations were used to study Annexin and Cardiac Troponin C (cTnC). Annexin A1 is an important protein that is known to induce membrane aggregation, while cardiac Troponin C (cTnC) regulates cardiac muscle contraction. This study focuses on the impact of mutations on Annexin A1 and cTnC with the objective to gain insight of how these changes are made by mutations. The ultimate goal of this research is to use the knowledge of the effects of point mutations on calcium binding proteins dynamics to treat disease. Multiple ...
Severe disease expression of cardiac troponin C and T mutations in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. - Radcliffe...
OBJECTIVES: We performed genetic investigations of cardiac troponin T (TNNT2) and troponin C (TNNC1) in 235 consecutive patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) to evaluate prevalence of mutations and associated disease expression in affected families. BACKGROUND: Recently, mutations in sarcomeric genes have been reported in DCM. However, the prevalence, penetrance, and clinical significance of sarcomere gene mutations in large consecutive cohorts of DCM patients are poorly defined. METHODS: Mutation detection was performed by fluorescent SSCP/DHPLC analysis and direct sequencing. The functional effects of mutations on interactions within the troponin complex were assessed by a two-hybrid luciferase assay. RESULTS: A total of 43% (102 of 235) of the study cohort had familial DCM. One TNNC1 and four TNNT2 (three novel) mutations were identified in one and four families, respectively. The prevalence of TNNC1/TNNT2 mutations in familial DCM was 5% with a penetrance of 100%. A total of 21

Troponin T monitoring to detect myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery: a cost-consequence analysis.
BACKGROUND: Myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery (MINS) is a mostly asymptomatic condition that is strongly associated with 30-day mortality; however, it remains mostly undetected without systematic troponin T monitoring. We evaluated the cost and consequences of postoperative troponin T monitoring to detect MINS. METHODS: We conducted a model-based cost-consequence analysis to compare the impact of routine troponin T monitoring versus standard care (troponin T measurement triggered by ischemic symptoms) on the incidence of MINS detection. Model inputs were based on Canadian patients enrolled in the Vascular Events in Noncardiac Surgery Patients Cohort Evaluation (VISION) study, which enrolled patients aged 45 years or older undergoing inpatient noncardiac surgery. We conducted probability analyses with 10 000 iterations and extensive sensitivity analyses. RESULTS: The data were based on 6021 patients (48% men, mean age 65 [standard deviation 12] yr). The 30-day mortality rate for MINS was ...
Analytically false or true positive elevations of high sensitivity cardiac troponin: a systematic approach | Heart
Cardiac troponin (cTn) is a regulatory protein of the myofibrillar thin filament of striated muscle regulating excitation-contraction coupling in the heart.w1 Among the three subunits (T, I, and C), only cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and I (cTnI) are expressed in cardiac muscle and released into blood following myocardial cell death. Several distinct pathobiological mechanisms leading to elevated troponin values have been suggested, not all of which involve myocyte necrosis.w2. cTnT or cTnI are routinely used in emergency units as the preferred biomarkers for the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (MI). According to joint criteria for the diagnosis of acute MI by the European Society of Cardiology/American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association/World Heart Federation Task Force, an acute MI should be diagnosed in patients with symptoms of myocardial ischaemia and detection of a rise and/or fall of cardiac biomarkers (preferentially troponins) with at least one value above the 99th ...
TROPONIN TURNAROUND TIMES-QT15
Patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) with chest pain must be evaluated quickly. Rapid serum troponin measurement is an important part of ED practice that can provide decisive information for patient management. Reducing delays in troponin testing has been reported to result in shorter length of stay in the ED and more rapid initiation of anti-ischemic treatment. Emergency departments and chest pain centers should, therefore, have effective procedures for ensuring optimal turnaround time (TAT) for troponin testing and a process for ongoing monitoring to ensure that performance meets expectations. QT15 is enhanced for 2019 with additional time intervals to help pinpoint process time challenges. Laboratories use this monitor to help meet CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program Checklist statement GEN.20316 QM Indicators of Quality. The American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association recommend troponin as the preferred diagnostic biomarker in their Acute Coronary ...
Disease-Related Cardiac Troponins Alter Thin Filament Ca2+ Association and Dissociation Rates - Semantic Scholar
The contractile response of the heart can be altered by disease-related protein modifications to numerous contractile proteins. By utilizing an IAANS labeled fluorescent troponin C, [Formula: see text], we examined the effects of ten disease-related troponin modifications on the Ca(2+) binding properties of the troponin complex and the reconstituted thin filament. The selected modifications are associated with a broad range of cardiac diseases: three subtypes of familial cardiomyopathies (dilated, hypertrophic and restrictive) and ischemia-reperfusion injury. Consistent with previous studies, the majority of the protein modifications had no effect on the Ca(2+) binding properties of the isolated troponin complex. However, when incorporated into the thin filament, dilated cardiomyopathy mutations desensitized (up to 3.3-fold), while hypertrophic and restrictive cardiomyopathy mutations, and ischemia-induced truncation of troponin I, sensitized the thin filament to Ca(2+) (up to 6.3-fold). Kinetically,

troponin | The British Journal of Cardiology
Introduction Most patients presenting as an emergency with chest pain do not have myocardial infarction (MI),1 which must, nevertheless, be ruled out in order to reassure and discharge from hospital. High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-TnT) and troponin I (hs-TnI) have streamlined the assessment and management of chest pain, as a rapid rule out of MI is now possible, particularly if hs-TnT or hs-TnI are undetectable at presentation.2-8 Undetectable troponin cannot, however, be used to exclude unstable angina, which by definition is not associated with a troponin rise.9 It is for this reason that physicians and cardiologists may be reluct. ...
Medico-legal challenges of GP troponin tests - MJA InSight 27, 18 July 2016 | doctorportal
This article is the first weve seen that unequivocally states the clinical scenarios and the timeframes in which troponin should and shouldnt be ordered, Dr Wilcox told MJA InSight. Its also the first article that talks about the role of high-sensitivity troponin in general practice. Dr Walid Jammal, Senior Medical Advisor - Advocacy with Avant, also welcomed the narrative review as an important contribution to the discussion about the role of cardiac troponin testing in general practice, but said it was unlikely to reduce the associated medico-legal risk.. He said there were several medico-legal challenges associated with the use of cardiac troponin testing in general practice.. Problems may arise if the GP doesnt properly understand the clinical utility and the positive and the negative predictive values of the test in a particular patient. This can lead to inappropriately ordering the test in patients for whom its not relevant, he said. Medico-legal risk will also arise if the GP ...

Three studies with respect to the biochemical evaluation of acute coronary syndromes were undertaken : (1) The clinical application of biochemical markers for diagnosis and risk stratification in patients with acute coronary syndroms. (2) The value of cardiac troponins under different physiological and pathophysiological conditions. (3) Experimental transient myocardial ischemia in an animal model with respect to the question, whether elevation of cardiac troponins in plasma perhaps occur after reversible myocardial damage. The clinical appilication of cardiac markers is sufficiently possible following actual guidelines and should include cardiac troponin measurement. The troponin test-system has to be evaluated in clinical studies with respect to its diagnostic and prognostic properties. In this study significant differences between two cardiac troponin I test-systems could be shown. The differences were below clinical relevance. Mild to moderate elevations of cardiac troponin T in patients ...
Human Cardiac Troponin T: Cloning and Expression of New Isoforms in the Normal and Failing Heart | Circulation Research
This study confirms the recent assignment of the human cTnT gene to chromosome 1q21 and refines the location of the gene to 1q32 by physical mapping. No signal was observed on any other chromosome that might be accounted for by another troponin family gene. This chromosomal location supports our previous hypothesis that cardiac and slow skeletal TnT are encoded by distinct genes.15 Sequencing of five clones isolated from the fetal human heart cDNA library identified two variable boxes in the 5′ half of cTnT cDNA. The first box is composed of 30 bp coding for 10 amino acids (EEEDWREDED) and defining a highly acidic domain, which can be excised of the first amino acid (E) (Fig 2⇑). The resulting 27-bp box in the 5′ region of F-II-18 is identical to that recently reported by Townsend et al,21 but the existence of an additional amino acid at the 5′ end of this box in two other cDNAs (F-II-10 and F-II-16) shifts the limits of the variable domain by one amino acid (between amino acids 22 and ...

Myocardial injury revealed by plasma troponin I in breast cancer treated with high-dose chemotherapy | Archivio Istituzionale...
Background: High-dose chemotherapy (HDC) has been widely utilized in high-risk breast cancer, but it may induce cardiac toxicity. Cardiac dysfunction may become evident weeks or months after HDC and, to date, no early markers of myocardial injury that are able to predict late ventricular impairment are available. We investigated the role of plasma troponin I (TnI) in this setting. Patients and methods: We measured TnI plasma concentration after HDC in 211 high-risk breast cancer women (46 ± 11 years, mean ± SD). According to TnI value (,0.5 or ≥0.5 ng/ml), patients were allocated into a troponin positive (TnI+; n = 70) and a troponin negative (TnI-; n = 141) group. All patients underwent left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF, Echo) examination during the following 12 months. Results: LVEF progressively decreased in the TnI+ group but not in the TnI- group. In TnI+ patients a close relationship between the TnI increase, as well as the number of positive TnI assays, and the maximal LVEF ...
Cardiac troponin T circulates in the free, intact form in patients with kidney failure. - Kent Academic Repository
BACKGROUND: The clinical significance of the increased concentrations of cardiac troponins observed in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) in the absence of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is controversial. One proposed explanation is that immunoreactive fragments of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) accumulate in ESRD. We used gel-filtration chromatography (GFC) to ascertain whether fragments of cTnT, which could cross-react in the commercial diagnostic immunoassay (Roche Diagnostics), were the cause of the increased cTnT in the serum of patients with ESRD. METHODS: We subjected sera from ESRD patients (n = 21) receiving dialysis and having increased cTnT concentrations to size-separation GFC. We detected cTnT in the chromatography fractions by use of the same antibodies used in the commercial assay for serum cTnT. RESULTS: In all patients, cTnT immunoreactivity eluted as a major, homogeneous peak in an identical position between the peaks of serum prolactin [relative molecular mass (Mr) ...

2000 - Review: The accuracy of troponin T and I tests in acute MI depends on timing after onset of symptoms | 2001...
Serum troponin T and I tests are often used to help diagnose acute MI. The diagnostic performance of the tests varies greatly, however, depending on the cut point used to define abnormal levels and the timing of the test from onset of symptoms. The review by Ebell and colleagues highlights the difficulties in using troponin tests for the diagnosis of MI and provides summary sensitivity and specificity data for specific cut point values and times from symptom onset. These values are derived by using data from studies of varying quality and from a wide spectrum of patients, including patients presenting to the ED with symptoms suggestive of MI and those admitted to coronary care units because of high suspicion of MI. The reported test sensitivities may be inflated by the inclusion of patients with a high likelihood of MI. The summary diagnostic performance values are best-fit estimates from data from several studies and are not derived by statistically rigorous methods. The only conclusions that ...
Most recent papers with the keyword Troponin Sensitive Diagnosis | Read by QxMD
Early diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI) with cardiac troponin (cTn) assays at the point-of-care (POC) is suggested to shorten turn-around-time in the emergency department (ED). The present study aimed at comparing the diagnostic performance of two POC cTn assays with that of a central laboratory high-sensitivity (hs) method, under routine ED conditions. In 2,163 non-selected ED patients suspected for MI, the diagnostic performance of the POC troponin I (TnI), troponin T (TnT), and hs-TnT assay for the prediction of MI was evaluated based on receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analyses and compared with the performance based on the manufacturers cut-offs ...
Research - The Fajer Lab
Muscle contraction is initiated by the binding of Ca2+ to the thin filament. This signal somehow results in a changed interaction between the myosin head and actin. Since Ca2+ binds to troponin C, a protein which is not in direct contact with either myosin or actin, the signal must be propagated via the other regulatory proteins, troponin I, troponin T and tropomyosin. The nature of these interactions is not well understood. In solution Ca-binding proteins containing E-F hands analogous to troponin C undergo large structural changes. The conformational freedom of troponin C in complex with the proteins of the thin filament is greatly restricted and changes are more subtle. They involve changes in the mobility of constituent proteins and their relative geometries. The questions asked and the general strategy to answer them is similar to those described above for energy transduction-identify and describe the motions within the proteins, and correlate them with thin filament activation. The ...
Troponin C, slow skeletal and cardiac muscles
Troponin is a central regulatory protein of striated muscle contraction, and together with tropomyosin, is located on the actin filament. Troponin consists of 3 subunits: TnI, which is the inhibitor of actomyosin ATPase; TnT, which contains the binding site for tropomyosin; and TnC, the protein encoded by this gene. The binding of calcium to TnC abolishes the inhibitory action of TnI, thus allowing the interaction of actin with myosin, the hydrolysis of ATP, and the generation of tension. Mutations in this gene are associated with cardiomyopathy dilated type 1Z. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008 ...
Chris Potter: The Potter Principle - JazzTimes
I can hear Chris Potters sound even before he starts to improvise. These are the words of Ravi Coltrane, Potters fellow saxophonist and contemporary, in a November 2005 Blindfold Test for Downbeat. The track Coltrane heard was Sintra, from David Binneys 2004 release Welcome to Life (Mythology). Potter states the initial melody in a calm yet resolute tenor voice-nothing fancy, just 10 or so legato notes, but enough for Coltrane to identify him. This is perhaps the ultimate compliment for a saxophonist, who invests his very breath in the instrument and strives for a personal tone above all else.. Potters tone has served him well. He is a figure of international renown by age 35. Hes the youngest musician ever to win Denmarks JAZZPAR Prize. His discography, from a creative if not a commercial standpoint, is pure platinum: over a dozen albums as a leader and counting, plus sideman credits with Dave Holland, Dave Douglas, Steve Swallow, Paul Motian and many others. In David Liebmans ...
A Comparison of p53-induced Genes Activation in Patients With and Without Acute Myocardial Infarction - Full Text View -...
The diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction is based on the rise of bio-markers for cardiac necrosis such as troponin. While troponin measurement is highly sensitive for myocardial necrosis it has several limitations that influence its clinical use. First, since the troponin test is reliable only after 4-6 hours from symptoms onset, it has only limited value in the assessment of patients presenting earlier. Second, several clinical situations, most commonly renal dysfunction, are associated with increased troponin level and therefore may decrease the specificity of the test. Third, since troponin rise indicates myocardial infarction it is not useful in the common situations where there is myocardial ischemia without necrosis.. The P53 is a tumor suppressing gene activated in different stressful situations including hypoxia. This activation is associated with accelerated transcription (up to 30-50 folds from baseline) of different genes that are involved in apoptosis, DNA repair and in stopping ...

Foundation-Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) heights on affirmation demonstrate a high-hazard subgroup of patients with ST-fragment rise intense myocardial localized necrosis (AMI). This finding has been credited to less successful reperfusion after thrombolytic treatment. The point of this examination was to decide the function of confirmation cTnT on the viability of percutaneous coronary intercessions (PCIs) in sub-par AMI.. Techniques and Results-One hundred 59 back to back patients with second rate ST-portion AMI were selected and followed up for a mean of 448 days. Patients were separated by cTnT on confirmation. A cTnT ≥0.1 μg/L was found in 58% of patients. These patients had longer time ...

A FRET Investigation into Molecular Mechanisms of Cardiac Troponin Act by Maria Eleni Moutsoglou
Cardiomyopathies (CM) are the leading cause of death in America, and can develop from mutations in sarcomeric proteins, leading to altered protein structure and function. Current therapies target upstream signaling pathways to treat the symptoms of heart failure, but are associated with increased mortality by affecting downstream signaling pathways and other muscle types. Rational drug design can develop therapies to treat CM at the protein level. However, a detailed knowledge of how sarcomeric proteins regulate muscle contraction is required. Muscle contraction occurs through a cyclic interaction between actin thin and myosin thick filaments, regulated by intracellular Ca2+ concentration. Troponin (Tn), the Ca2+-binding protein in muscle, allosterically regulates actin and myosin interactions (crossbridge formation) by facilitating the release of two troponin I (TnI) actin binding sites at high Ca2+, the inhibitory region (IR) and the second actin binding site (SABS). The mechanism to remove TnI
3219393 - CellBiology
A final limitation of cardiac troponin testing is that there is currently no standardization of cardiac troponin assays with different commercial assays giving numerically different results. This issue arises from the fact that the detection limits of these assays are unable to characterize normal cardiac troponin levels in healthy controls, as well as different assays using different antibodies targeting other sites on the troponin protein [3,17]. For comparability and to avoid false-positives, the joint committee of the American College of Cardiology and the European Society of Cardiology recommended the following for the diagnosis of myocardial infarction: an increased value for cardiac troponin should be defined as a measurement exceeding the 99th percentile of a reference control group. Reference values must be determined in each laboratory by studies using specific assays with appropriate quality control, as reported in peer-reviewed journals . They also recommended that assays have ...

ventriloquist and magician, was born in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, the son of Dinah Swain (often called Black Dinah), a slave. Potters mother was kidnapped by Dutch slave traders during her childhood, sold at an auction, and taken to Boston as a slave by Sir Charles Henry Frankland, a tax collector for the Port of Boston. She had five children while serving in Franklands household. The identity of Potters biological father remains a mystery. According to speculation, Potters father was Frankland. Early church records indicate that Potters father was a white man by the name of George Simpson. The origin of Potters name is another mystery.. Potter spent his early years on the Frankland estate in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.
