The structural and functional effects of the familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy-linked cardiac troponin C mutation, L29Q.
 

Author(s): Ian M Robertson, Ivanka Sevrieva, Monica X Li, Malcolm Irving, Yin-Biao Sun, Brian D Sykes

Journal: J. Mol. Cell. Cardiol.. 2015 Oct;87():257-69.

 

Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC) is characterized by severe abnormal cardiac muscle growth. The traditional view of disease progression in FHC is that an increase in the Ca(2+)-sensitivity of cardiac muscle contraction ultimately leads to pathogenic myocardial remodeling, ...
