What is Troponin?
It is a complex of three contractile regulatory proteins, troponin C, T and I, which controls the calcium-mediated interactions between actin and myosin in cardiac and skeletal muscles. Troponin-I and T are specific to cardiac muscles, unlike troponin-C which is associated with both cardiac and skeletal muscles. Hence, troponin-C is not used in the diagnosis of myocardial damage.
