ABSTRACT
Describes a mutant troponin C (TnC) in which the key conformational transition and the calcium-regulatory activity are reversibly blocked by the formation of a disulphide bridge. Mutant TnC design; Reactivity of thiol groups in mutant TnC; Ca2+ binding properties of TnC4882; Interaction of TnC4882 with TnI and TnT; Regulatory activity.
