Troponin I is present in human cartilage and inhibits angiogenesis. (1/1406)

Cartilage is an avascular and relatively tumor-resistant tissue. Work from a number of laboratories, including our own, has demonstrated that cartilage is an enriched source of endogenous inhibitors of angiogenesis. In the course of a study designed to identify novel cartilage-derived inhibitors of new capillary growth, we have purified an inhibitory protein that was identified by peptide microsequencing and protein database analysis as troponin I (TnI). TnI is a subunit of the troponin complex (troponin-C and troponin-T being the other two), which, along with tropomyosin, is responsible for the calcium-dependent regulation of striated muscle contraction; independently, TnI is capable of inhibiting actomyosin ATPase. Because troponin has never previously been reported to be present in cartilage, we have cloned and expressed the cDNA of human cartilage TnI, purified this protein to apparent homogeneity, and demonstrated that it is a potent and specific inhibitor of angiogenesis in vivo and in vitro, as well as of tumor metastasis in vivo.  (+info)

Ca2+-dependent interaction of the inhibitory region of troponin I with acidic residues in the N-terminal domain of troponin C. (2/1406)

Ca2+ regulation of vertebrate striated muscle contraction is initiated by conformational changes in the N-terminal, regulatory domain of the Ca2+-binding protein troponin C (TnC), altering the interaction of TnC with the other subunits of troponin complex, TnI and TnT. We have investigated the role of acidic amino acid residues in the N-terminal, regulatory domain of TnC in binding to the inhibitory region (residues 96-116) of TnI. We constructed three double mutants of TnC (E53A/E54A, E60A/E61A and E85A/D86A), in which pairs of acidic amino acid residues were replaced by neutral alanines, and measured their affinities for synthetic inhibitory peptides. These peptides had the same amino acid sequence as TnI segments 95-116, 95-119 or 95-124, except that the natural Phe-100 of TnI was replaced by a tryptophan residue. Significant Ca2+-dependent increases in the affinities of the two longer peptides, but not the shortest one, to TnC could be detected by changes in Trp fluorescence. In the presence of Ca2+, all the mutant TnCs showed about the same affinity as wild-type TnC for the inhibitory peptides. In the presence of Mg2+ and EGTA, the N-terminal, regulatory Ca2+-binding sites of TnC are unoccupied. Under these conditions, the affinity of TnC(E85A/D86A) for inhibitory peptides was about half that of wild-type TnC, while the other two mutants had about the same affinity. These results imply a Ca2+-dependent change in the interaction of TnC Glu-85 and/or Asp-86 with residues (117-124) on the C-terminal side of the inhibitory region of TnI. Since Glu-85 and/or Asp-86 of TnC have also been demonstrated to be involved in Ca2+-dependent regulation through interaction with TnT, this region of TnC must be critical for troponin function.  (+info)

Specific myosin heavy chain mutations suppress troponin I defects in Drosophila muscles. (3/1406)

We show that specific mutations in the head of the thick filament molecule myosin heavy chain prevent a degenerative muscle syndrome resulting from the hdp2 mutation in the thin filament protein troponin I. One mutation deletes eight residues from the actin binding loop of myosin, while a second affects a residue at the base of this loop. Two other mutations affect amino acids near the site of nucleotide entry and exit in the motor domain. We document the degree of phenotypic rescue each suppressor permits and show that other point mutations in myosin, as well as null mutations, fail to suppress the hdp2 phenotype. We discuss mechanisms by which the hdp2 phenotypes are suppressed and conclude that the specific residues we identified in myosin are important in regulating thick and thin filament interactions. This in vivo approach to dissecting the contractile cycle defines novel molecular processes that may be difficult to uncover by biochemical and structural analysis. Our study illustrates how expression of genetic defects are dependent upon genetic background, and therefore could have implications for understanding gene interactions in human disease.  (+info)

Characterization of the cardiac holotroponin complex reconstituted from native cardiac troponin T and recombinant I and C. (4/1406)

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.  (+info)

Diagnostic marker cooperative study for the diagnosis of myocardial infarction. (5/1406)

BACKGROUND: Millions of patients present annually with chest pain, but only 10% to 15% have myocardial infarction. Lack of diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of clinical and conventional markers prevents or delays treatment and leads to unnecessary costly admissions. Comparative data are lacking on the new markers, yet using all of them is inappropriate and expensive. METHODS AND RESULTS: The Diagnostic Marker Cooperative Study was a prospective, multicenter, double-blind study with consecutive enrollment of patients with chest pain presenting to the emergency department. Diagnostic sensitivity and specificity and frequency of increase in patients with unstable angina were determined for creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) subforms, myoglobin, total CK-MB (activity and mass), and troponin T and I on the basis of frequent serial sampling for +info)

Reduced reflex sensitivity persists several days after long-lasting stretch-shortening cycle exercise. (6/1406)

The mechanisms related to the acute and delayed secondary impairment of the stretch reflex function were investigated after long-lasting stretch-shortening cycle exercise. The results demonstrated a clear deterioration in muscle function immediately after fatigue, which was accompanied by a clear reduction in active and passive reflex sensitivity. For active and passive stretch reflexes, this reduction was biphasic (P < 0.05 to P < 0.001). However, for the ratio of the electrically induced maximal Hoffmann reflex to the maximal mass compound action potential, only one significant reduction was seen immediately after fatigue (71.2%, P < 0.01). A similar significant (P < 0.01) decrease in the stretch-resisting force of the muscle was also detected. Clear increases were found in the indirect markers of muscle damage (serum creatine kinese activity and skeletal troponin I), which could imply the occurrence of ultrastructural muscle damage. It is suggested that the acute reduction in reflex sensitivity is of reflex origin and due to two active mechanisms, disfacilitation and presynaptic inhibition. However, the delayed second decline in the sensitivity of some reflex parameters may be attributable to the secondary injury, because of some inflammatory response to the muscle damage. This might emphasize the role of presynaptic inhibition via group III and IV muscle afferents.  (+info)

Comparison of myocardial perfusion imaging and cardiac troponin I in patients admitted to the emergency department with chest pain. (7/1406)

BACKGROUND: Identification of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) among those who present to emergency departments with possible myocardial ischemia is difficult. Myocardial perfusion imaging with 99mTc sestamibi and measurement of serum cardiac troponin I (cTnI) both can identify patients with ACS. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients considered at low to moderate risk for ACS underwent gated single-photon emission CT sestamibi imaging and serial myocardial marker measurements of creatine kinase-MB, total creatine kinase activity, and cTnI over 8 hours. Positive perfusion imaging was defined as a perfusion defect with associated abnormalities in wall motion or thickening. cTnI >/=2.0 ng/mL was considered abnormal. Among the 620 patients studied, 59 (9%) had myocardial infarction and 81 (13%) had significant coronary disease; of these patients, 58 underwent revascularization. Perfusion imaging was positive in 241 patients (39%), initial cTnI was positive in 37 (6%), and cTnI was >/=2.0 ng/mL in 74 (12%). Sensitivity for detecting myocardial infarction was not significantly different between perfusion imaging (92%) and cTnI (90%), and both were significantly higher than the initial cTnI (39%). Sensitivity for predicting revascularization or significant coronary disease was significantly higher for perfusion imaging than for serial cTnI, although specificity for all end points was significantly lower. Lowering the cutoff value of cTnI to 1.0 ng/mL did not significantly change the results. CONCLUSIONS: Early perfusion imaging and serial cTnI have comparable sensitivities for identifying myocardial infarction. Perfusion imaging identified more patients who underwent revascularization or who had significant coronary disease, but it had lower specificity. The 2 tests can provide complementary information for identifying patients at risk for ACS.  (+info)

Impaired cardiomyocyte relaxation and diastolic function in transgenic mice expressing slow skeletal troponin I in the heart. (8/1406)

1. To assess the specific functions of the cardiac isoform of troponin I (cTnI), we produced transgenic mice that expressed slow skeletal troponin I (ssTnI) specifically in cardiomyocytes. Cardiomyocytes from these mice displayed quantitative replacement of cTnI with transgene-encoded ssTnI. 2. The ssTnI transgenic mice were viable and fertile and did not display increased mortality or detectable cardiovascular histopathology. They exhibited normal ventricular weights and heart rates. 3. Permeabilized transgenic cardiomyocytes demonstrated an increased Ca2+ sensitivity of tension and a lack of contractile responsiveness to cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA). Isolated cardiomyocytes from transgenic mice had normal velocities of unloaded shortening but unlike wild-type controls exhibited no enhancement of the velocity of shortening in response to treatment with isoprenaline. Transgenic cardiomyocytes exhibited greater extents of shortening than non-transgenic cardiomyocytes at baseline and after treatment with isoprenaline. 4. The rates of rise of intracellular [Ca2+] and the peak amplitudes of the intracellular [Ca2+] transients were similar in transgenic and wild-type myocytes. However, the half-time of intracellular [Ca2+] decay was significantly greater in the transgenic myocytes. This change in decay of intracellular [Ca2+] was correlated with an increase in the re-lengthening time of the transgenic cells. 5. These changes in cardiomyocyte function in vitro were manifested in vivo as impaired diastolic function both at baseline and after stimulation with isoprenaline. 6. Thus, cTnI has important roles in regulating the Ca2+ sensitivity of cardiac myofibrils and controlling cardiomyocyte relaxation and cardiac diastolic function. cTnI is also required for the normal responsiveness of cardiomyocytes to beta-adrenergic receptor stimulation.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Measurement of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin levels is increasingly used in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). However, studies investigating the distribution and prognostic implications of high-sensitivity troponin levels in men and women separately are currently lacking.. METHODS: Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) levels were determined using a high-sensitivity assay (Abbott Laboratories, Abbott Park, IL) in 1,677 male and 1,073 female NSTE-ACS patients participating in the GUSTO IV study. The prognostic associations of cTnI to outcome (30-day composite end point of recurrent myocardial infarction and 1-year mortality) were assessed in multivariable models, using cTnI both as a continuous variable and dichotomized at different sets of single and gender-specific 99th percentiles.. RESULTS: Median cTnI levels were 947 and 175 ng/L in men and women, respectively (P , .001). The adjusted odds ratios for cTnI (ln) were similar in men and women. The adjusted odds ratios for ...

Covalent modification of cTnI by kinase-mediated phosphorylation is an important mechanism in the regulation of thin filament function and thereby the cardiac contractile phenotype.26 Furthermore, altered phosphorylation of cTnI and other myofilament proteins may contribute causally to cardiac dysfunction in the transition from compensated hypertrophy to heart failure.30 In this context, the present work shows, for the first time to our knowledge, that PKD interacts with and directly phosphorylates a number of myofilament proteins, including cTnI at Ser22 and Ser23, and that PKD-mediated phosphorylation of cardiac myofilaments has a functional impact on both the Ca2+ sensitivity of tension development and the crossbridge cycling kinetics.. To date, most investigative effort in phosphorylation-mediated regulation of cTnI function has focused on the actions of PKA and PKC. Evidence from studies in a variety of systems, ranging from reconstituted myofilament proteins to cultured myocytes or ...

The extent of cTnAAb interference in different cTnI assay configurations and the molecular characteristics of cTnAAbs were investigated in publications I and II, respectively. The findings showed that cTnI midfragment targeting immunoassays used predominantly in clinical practice are affected by cTnAAb interference which can be circumvented by using a novel 3+1-type assay design with three capture antibodies against the N-terminus, midfragment and C-terminus and one tracer antibody against the C-terminus. The use of this assay configuration was further supported by the epitope specificity study, which showed that although the midfragment is most commonly targeted by cTnAAbs, the interference basically encompasses the whole molecule, and there may be remarkable individual variation at the affected sites. In publications III and IV, all the data obtained in previous studies were utilized to develop an improved version of an existing cTnAAb assay and a sensitive cTnI assay free of this specific ...

FRIDAY, Sept. 13, 2019 (HealthDay News) - Typical symptoms of myocardial infarction are more common and have greater predictive value in women than in men, according to a study published in the Sept. 3 issue of the Journal of the American Heart Association.. Amy V. Ferry, from the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, and colleagues evaluated patient-reported symptoms in 1,941 patients (39 percent women) presenting to the emergency department with suspected acute coronary syndrome. Typical and atypical presentations were characterized based on pain nature, location, radiation, and additional symptoms, while a diagnosis of myocardial infarction was determined using a high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I assay with sex-specific thresholds.. The researchers found that type 1 myocardial infarction was diagnosed in 16 percent of men (184 of 1,185) and 12 percent of women (90 of 756). Five percent of men and 30 percent of women were reclassified using the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I ...
It is well established that troponin I is a phosphoprotein. Phosphorylation alters its functional properties and this modulation of function through the action of kinases and phosphatases plays a role in tuning the contractile apparatus. The prime example of this is phosphorylation by protein kinase A (PKA) as part of inotropic and lusitropic responses to β-adrenergic stimulation. What is considerably less certain is the where and when of these phosphorylation processes in the human heart. Recent research has addressed this question with new techniques and the results have been surprising and somewhat disconcerting. Quantitative measurements of total phosphorylation by phosphate affinity sodium dodecylsulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) indicate that 1.6 mol of Pi are incorporated per mole of troponin I in the donor heart. According to current literature, troponin I is phosphorylated in vitro by PKA at Ser22 and 23, by protein kinase C (PKC) at Ser41, Ser43 and Thr142 and ...
This project will focus on gaining useful reference data of the cardiacsensitive biomarker, serum cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in adult Thoroughbreds and Thoroughbred foals. Different groups including clinically normal horses (foals and Thoroughbreds in race training), horses with primary cardiac disease, and horses (of a range of ages) with primary gastrointestinal tract disease that could effect mean arterial pressure and coronary perfusion, will be assessed. The project will focus on obtaining clinically relevent information by collecting data via telemetric electrocardiograms (ecg) and comparing any results of abnormal ecg traces with troponin levels in Thoroughbreds in training, horses with gastrointestinal compromise and in foals. Telemetric ecg is an excellent noninvasive assessment method that can be used in horses over a prolonged period of time, and at exercise as well as at rest. This study will assist in determining whether diagnosis of poor performance due to myocardial disease in ...
The differentiation and maturation of striated muscle involves numerous alterations in the pattern of contractile protein isoform gene expression which ultimately lead to the mature phenotype of distinct muscles. The molecular mechanisms controlling these processes remain poorly understood. Troponin I (TnI) is one of the contractile proteins that is subjected to this complex regulation. Three TnI isoform genes are differentially expressed in slow and fast skeletal myofibers and adult cardiac muscle. We first studied the expression profile of the three TnI isoform genes during murine development. Detailed analysis showed that the slow isoform of TnI (TnI{dollar}\rm \sb{lcub}S{rcub}){dollar} is the predominant isoform found in early development of both skeletal and cardiac muscles. The differential expression pattern of TnI isoform genes occurs at late fetal and postnatal stages. During this period, TnI{dollar}\rm \sb{lcub}S{rcub}{dollar} becomes restricted to slow twitch skeletal myofibers and ...
Troponin in Emergency Department COVID patients. Cardiac Troponin (cTn) is a nonspecific marker of myocardial injury. In normal times, the most common use of cTni is in diagnosing, or ruling out, acute myocardial infarction (AMI, a subcategory of acute myocardial injury. However, in multiple studies, even in the absence of AMI, both acute and chronic myocardial injury (as diagnosed by any elevated cTn) are powerful markers of adverse outcomes in both the short and long term.1,2 New data on acute myocardial injury associated with COVID-19 again shows very strong independent association between elevated cTnI and disease severity, including mortality, and a correlation of increasing severity with increasing troponin levels.3-8 Shi et al.3 studied 416 patients hospitalized with COVID in China, of whom 82 had an initial cTn(I) above the upper reference limit. Those with elevated cTnI, compared to those without, developed more severe disease on multiple measures, including mortality: (42 of 82 [51.2%] ...
We performed a meta-analysis of published trials to determine the predictive value of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and T (cTnT) levels for adverse events (death and myocardial infarction) in acute coronary syndrome without ST elevation (ACS). The accumulated odds ratio (OR) for adverse events (30 days) in ACS with elevated cTnI (n = 5,759) and cTnT (n = 5,483) was 4.9 (95% confidence interval, CI, 3.9-6.2) and 4.6 (95% CI 3.8-5.5), respectively. Trials that mandated timed serum sampling (6 or more hours after symptom onset) had an improved predictive value for elevated cTnI (n = 2,807, OR 8.8; 95% CI 5.9-13.2) and cTnT (n = 1,990, OR 8.5; 95% CI 5.9-12.5). In conclusion, cTnI and cTnT provide similar information in ACS. The risk of adverse events is 4-fold higher in patients with suspected ACS and elevated serum cTn. For patients with an elevated timed (6-hour) sample the risk is over 8-fold higher.
Cardiac conditions. Certain subtypes of troponin (cardiac troponin I and T) are very sensitive and specific indicators of damage to the heart muscle (myocardium). They are measured in the blood to differentiate between unstable angina and myocardial infarction (heart attack) in patients with chest pain or acute coronary syndrome. A patient who had suffered from a myocardial infarction would have an area of damaged heart muscle and so would have elevated cardiac troponin levels in the blood. This can also occur in patients with coronary vasospasm.. It is important to note that cardiac troponins are a marker of all heart muscle damage, not just myocardial infarction. Other conditions that directly or indirectly lead to heart muscle damage can also increase troponin levels. Severe tachycardia (for example due to supraventricular tachycardia) in an individual with normal coronary arteries can also lead to increased troponins for example, presumably due to increased oxygen demand and inadequate ...
nontechnical summary Carrying out a myocardial infarction cardiac muscle becomes irreversibly broken and as time passes this may result in heart failure. which this occurs as well as the degree to which adverse remodelling can be attenuated. Abstract Abstract The goal of this research was to research the part of intramyocardial administration of chimeric ephrinA1-Fc in modulating the degree of damage and swelling in non reperfused myocardial infarction (MI). Our outcomes display that intramyocardial shot of 6 μg ephrinA1-Fc in to the boundary zone soon after long term coronary artery ligation in AG-490 B6129s mice led to 50% reduced amount of infarct size 64 much less necrosis 35 less chamber dilatation and 32% less left ventricular free wall thinning at 4 days post-MI. In the infarct zone Ly6G+ neutrophil density was 57% reduced and CD45+ leukocyte density was 21% reduced. Myocyte damage was also reduced in ephrinA1-Fc-treated hearts as evidenced by 54% reduced serum cardiac troponin I. ...
Background: High sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-cTnI) assays are being approved for use in the United States (US). Our objective was to determine the efficacy of a 2 hour acute myocardial infarction (AMI) rule-out/rule-in European derived hs-cTnI algorithm when applied to patients in the US when the second sample was drawn 2-3 hours later in the High Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin I in the US (HIGH-US) study. Methods: Adults presenting with any suspicion for AMI were included. Patients with STEMI were excluded. Baseline and 2-3 hour plasma samples were analyzed in a core laboratory (University of Maryland) using the Siemens Atellica hs-cTnI assay (99th % 45.0 ng/L). AMI was independently adjudicated using all 30 day clinical materials available. Results: 2505 patients were enrolled with 1916 having complete data for the 2-3 hour algorithm analyses. Subjects had a mean age of 56.7 ± 12.9 years and 1419 (56.5%) were males Past medical history included hypertension in 1730 (69.1%), coronary artery

VetVine is an accredited Continuing Education provider for veterinary professionals and resource of expert-driven pet health information for pet owners. This is the forum topic view page. When a cat in respiratory distress (dyspnea) is brought to a veterinary hospital, it creates a challenging emergency situation that requires quick assessment and appropriate intervention. The patient must be handled carefully to avoid decompensation or death. The two most common causes of dyspnea in cats are congestive heart failure and respiratory tract disease. A minimally invasive or patient-side test to help identify cats with heart failure would be clinically useful. From the results of previous studies, the circulating concentrations of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) are supportive in distinguishing cats with dyspnea due to respiratory disease from those with underlying heart disease. It has been noted that cTnI concentrations may be elevated in cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, myocardial contusions (trauma),

BACKGROUND:Periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI) is known to be a predictor of postprocedural cardiovascular morbidity and mortality following a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, the correlation between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and periprocedural myocardial injury in patients following elective PCI in southern China remains unclear. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the association of preoperative low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels with PMI in patients following elective PCI. MATERIAL AND METHODS:This study included 1942 consecutive patients who received elective PCI. Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) was used to assess perioperative myocardial injury. The peak cTnI was measured within 24 h after PCI, and the correlation between the cTnI value and the preoperative LDL level was studied. RESULTS:The data suggest that the PCI patients with preprocedural LDL-C |100 mg/dl were strongly and independently correlated with less risk of PMI. Univariate logistic regression
It is advised in NG171 that all patients with a suspected or confirmed acute myocardial injury should be monitored in a setting that allows for any cardiac and respiratory deterioration to be rapidly identified. In addition, continuous ECG monitoring should be undertaken as well as regular blood pressure, heart rate and fluid balance checks.. NG171 recommends that where there is a clear diagnosis of myocardial injury, health professionals obtain specialist cardiology advice on treatment, any further relevant tests or imaging and to follow local treatment protocols.. In cases where there is a high suspicion of myocardial injury but no clear diagnosis, NG171 advises health professionals to repeat high sensitivity troponin and daily ECGs which may help to establish a clear diagnosis. NG171 suggests that staff seek specialist cardiology advice on the need for any further investigations to assist in the diagnosis such as transthoracic echocardiography ...

To the Editor:. The interpretation of cardiac troponin concentrations at presentation and their dynamics over time is a key aspect in the diagnostic workup of acute myocardial infarction in the absence of characteristic electrocardiogram abnormalities. The present biological variation study sought to examine and compare the hour-to-hour biological variation in cardiac troponin I (cTnI) over 24 h in individuals with and without chronic kidney disease (CKD).1 This study was carried out according to the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki and approved by the Institutional Review Board and Ethics Committee of Maastricht University Medical Center ( NCT02091427 and NCT02210897). All participants provided written informed consent.. From 8:30 AM until 9:30 AM the next day, 20 individuals with clinically stable CKD stage 3 or higher (estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ,59 mL · min−1 · 1.73 m−2) and 20 individuals without CKD were restricted to the laboratory ...
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 ...
Troponin I, slow skeletal muscle is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNNI1 gene. It is a tissue-specific subtype of troponin I, which in turn is a part of the troponin complex. Gene TNNI1, troponin I type 1 (skeletal muscle, slow), also known as TNN1 and SSTNI, is located at 1q31.3 in the human chromosomal genome, encoding the slow twitch skeletal muscle isoform of troponin I (ssTnI), the inhibitory subunit of the troponin complex in striated muscle myofilaments. Human TNNI1 spans 12.5 kilobases in the genomic DNA and contains 9 exons and 8 introns. Exon 2 to exon 8 contain the coding sequences, encoding a protein of 21.7 kDa consisting of 187 amino acids including the first methionine with an isoelectric point (pI) of 9.59. Three homologous genes have evolved in vertebrates, encoding three muscle type-specific isoforms of TnI. In mammals, the amino acid sequence of ssTnI is highly conserved. Mouse and bovine ssTnI each differs from human ssTnI in only four amino acids, and rhesus ...

Troponin I, cardiac muscle is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNNI3 gene. It is a tissue-specific subtype of troponin I, which in turn is a part of the troponin complex. The TNNI3 gene encoding cardiac troponin I (cTnI) is located at 19q13.4 in the human chromosomal genome. Human cTnI is a 24 kDa protein consisting of 210 amino acids with isoelectric point (pI) of 9.87. cTnI is exclusively expressed in adult cardiac muscle. cTnI has diverged from the skeletal muscle isoforms of TnI (slow TnI and fast TnI) mainly with a unique N-terminal extension. The amino acid sequence of cTnI is strongly conserved among mammalian species (Fig. 1). On the other hand, the N-terminal extension of cTnI has significantly different structures among mammal, amphibian and fish. TNNI3 is expressed as a heart specific gene. Early embryonic heart expresses solely slow skeletal muscle TnI. cTnI begins to express in mouse heart at approximately embryonic day 10, and the level gradually increases to one-half of ...

Wolfgang Koenig, M.D., Ph.D., professor of medicine/cardiology at the department of internal medicine II - cardiology at the University of Ulm Medical School, Ulm, Germany, reported that even modestly increased cardiac Troponin I (cTnI) levels are strongly associated with incident coronary heart disease (CHD) independent of standard risk factors. Using Singulexs highly sensitive cTnI research-use-only immunoassay, the long-term, population-based, prospective study found that cTnI was detectable in almost every healthy middle-aged subject. Incident CHD subjects had a higher baseline cTnI level than subjects who did not develop CHD (geometric mean 2.56 vs. 1.49 ng/L, p,0.0001).. Singulexs highly-sensitive cTnI assay has enabled us to predict the incidence of coronary heart disease in the general population, stated Koenig. I believe we now have the ability to gain greater insight into the cardiovascular risk profile of individuals who have not already been diagnosed with the ...
Troponin is recognized as the preferred biomarker in detection of MI given its high clinical sensitivity and myocardial tissue specificity. The Third Universal Definition of MI, endorsed by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF), the American Heart Association (AHA), and the World Heart Federation (WHF) and adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO), requires at least one cTnI value above the 99th percentile upper reference limit (URL) during patient monitoring for detection of MI. The cTnI methods on the Stratus CS/Stratus CS 200* and ADVIA Centaur XP systems are considered guideline-acceptable as they each display optimal precision at their 99th percentile URL with a coefficient of variation (CV) ≤10%, allowing reliable detection of changing cTnI values..

BACKGROUND: Postoperative myocardial injury (PMI) is a strong predictor of mortality after noncardiac surgery. PMI is believed to be attributable to coronary artery disease (CAD), yet its etiology is largely unclear. We aimed to quantify the prevalence of significant CAD in patients with and without PMI using coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). METHODS: This prospective cohort study included patients of 60 years or older without a history of cardiac disease and with and without PMI after intermediate- to high-risk noncardiac surgery. PMI was defined as any serum troponin I level ≥60 ng/L on the first 3 postoperative days. Main exclusion criteria were known cardiac disease and postoperative ischemic symptoms or electrocardiography abnormalities. Noninvasive imaging consisted of a postoperative CCTA. Main outcome was CAD defined as >50% coronary stenosis on CCTA. RESULTS: The analysis included 66 patients. Median peak troponin levels in the PMI (n = 46) and control group (n = 20) ...

... is a calcium-binding protein of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. The protein helps hold calcium in the cisterna of the sarcoplasmic reticulum after a muscle contraction, even though the concentration of calcium in the sarcoplasmic reticulum is much higher than in the cytosol. It also helps the sarcoplasmic reticulum store an extraordinarily high amount of calcium ions. Each molecule of calsequestrin can bind 18 to 50 Ca2+ ions.[1] Sequence analysis has suggested that calcium is not bound in distinct pockets via EF-hand motifs, but rather via presentation of a charged protein surface. Two forms of calsequestrin have been identified. The cardiac form Calsequestrin-2 (CASQ2) is present in cardiac and slow skeletal muscle and the fast skeletal form Calsequestrin-1(CASQ1) is found in fast skeletal muscle. The release of calsequestrin-bound calcium (through a calcium release channel) triggers muscle contraction. The active protein is not highly structured, more than 50% of it adopting a ...

  • High levels of troponin are an immediate red flag. (
  • As the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T test becomes more widely used, further refinement in the cutoff levels for normal troponin T is expected based on patient's age, sex, underlying medical conditions, and ethnicity. (
  • Cardiac troponin I mutations in Australia. (
  • Molecular dynamics, Brownian dynamics, and free energy simulations have been used to elucidate the conformational dynamics and underlying free energy landscape of troponin, calcium, and switch peptide binding, as well as the effect of disease mutations, small molecules and post-translational modifications such as phosphorylation. (
  • Lu QW, Wu XY, Morimoto S. Inherited cardiomyopathies caused by troponin mutations. (
  • In the troponin T gene no mutations but six polymorphisms were detected. (
  • The fifth-generation troponin test features greater sensitivity. (
  • What is the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin test? (
  • How does the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin test work? (
  • An elevated level of troponin T on the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin test indicates heart muscle damage or a heart attack. (
  • Thus, when the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T test detects levels above 14 ng/l, heart damage or heart attack is likely. (
  • High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T levels and secondary events in outpatients with coronary heart disease from the Heart and Soul Study. (
