Troponin is a heterotrimer that regulates muscle contraction in skeletal and cardiac muscle (but not in smooth muscle). Troponin acts with intracellular calcium to control the interaction of actin and myosin filaments in striated muscle fibers. Though they perform similar functions, cardiac and skeletal troponins differ in sequence and can be differentiated in immunoassays. When muscle tissue is damaged, the troponin-tropomyosin complex breaks down and troponin I and troponin T are released into the blood. Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and cardiac troponin I (cTnI) can be readily distinguished from their skeletal muscle analogs allowing confirmation of cardiac muscle tissue damage over skeletal muscle tissue damage. Troponins are excellent biomarkers for myocardial injury in cardiotoxicity because of the demonstrated tissue-specificity of cardiac and skeletal troponins.
