|Protein Name||Troponin C, slow skeletal and cardiac muscles|
|Molecular Weight||18403 MW|
|Protein Function||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.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the troponin C family.|
|Alternative Names||Troponin C, slow skeletal and cardiac muscles;TN-C;TNNC1;TNNC;|
|Research Areas|||signal transduction|cytoskeleton / ecm|cytoskeleton|microfilaments|actin etc|troponin| cardiovascular|heart|contractility|contractile proteins||

1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
