Previous Symbols for TNNC1 Gene
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]
GeneCards Summary for TNNC1 Gene
TNNC1 (Troponin C Type 1 (Slow)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TNNC1 include tnnc1-related dilated cardiomyopathy and cardiomyopathy, dilated, 1z. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and actin filament binding. An important paralog of this gene is CABP2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TNNC1 Gene
Troponin is the central regulatory protein of striated muscle contraction. Tn consists of three components: Tn-I which is the inhibitor of actomyosin ATPase, Tn-T which contains the binding site for tropomyosin and Tn-C. The binding of calcium to Tn-C abolishes the inhibitory action of Tn on actin filaments
