Western blot analysis of Tropomyosin(36kDa) expression in rat skeletal muscle extract (lane 1), rat cardiac muscle extract (lane 2), mouse skeletal muscle extract (lane 3), mouse cardiac muscle extract (lane 4), and HELA whole cell lysates (lane 5). Tropomyosin(36kDa) at 36KD was detected using rabbit anti-Tropomyosin(36kDa) Antigen Affinity purified polyclonal antibody (Catalog # MA1096) at 0.5 ??g/mL. The blot was developed using chemiluminescence (ECL) method (Catalog # EK1002).

Protein Function Binds to actin filaments in muscle and non-muscle cells. Plays a central role, in association with the troponin complex, in the calcium dependent regulation of vertebrate striated muscle contraction. Smooth muscle contraction is regulated by interaction with caldesmon. In non-muscle cells is implicated in stabilizing cytoskeleton actin filaments. Binds calcium.
Background The tropomyosins are a family of actin filament binding proteins. These proteins were first isolated from skeletal muscle, but later identified in many nonmuscle tissues. Tropomyosins are ubiquitous proteins of 35 to 45 kD associated with the actin filaments of myofibrils and stress fibers. Vertebrates have at least 4 different tropomyosin genes; in humans, they are named TPM1, TPM2, TPM3, and TPM4. Tropomyosins expressed as different isoforms in muscle and non-muscle cells.
