Abstract

We have determined the amino acid sequences of the three major isoforms of lobster troponin C, using protein chemistry methods. Each isoform contains 150 amino acid residues, with a calculated Mr of 17,000 +/- 100. Sequence differences occur in all regions of the polypeptides, indicating that the isoforms are products of three different genes, rather than alternative transcripts of a single gene. Analysis of the sequences predicts that functional Ca(2+)-binding sites are present only in regions II and IV of four ancestral regions.
