Release of troponin evaluated by the peak of troponin during the hospital phase.Because of its sensitivity and specificity as well as its widespread use in routine practice, rise in tropo...
Elevated troponin is powerful and independent adverse prognostic marker in patient with ACS. However, non specific (non cardiac) troponin elevation is a common finding among hospitalized p...
Troponin T-us is a cardiac marker for myocardial infarction. Its use in neonates is increasing, yet normal values are still to be determined for the latest generation of tests, such as Hig...
Elevated level of troponin is frequently observed among patients with renal dysfunction. Increase in troponin after cardiac surgery may predict postoperative outcome in cardiac surgery pat...
Troponin is a major diagnostic criterion of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) which confirms myocardial damage and necrosis. In out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients its dynamics ...
With the advent of the new high-sensitivity troponin assays, it is becoming critical to measure troponin accurately to low concentrations. To ensure assay performance is acceptable, appropriate QC mus...
Cardiac troponin levels in the blood are an important biomarker of acute coronary events, but may also be elevated in the context of acute ischemic stroke without an obvious concurrent myocardial insu...
The definition of Myocardial Infarction relies on elevated troponin levels. However, elevated levels of high sensitive cardiac troponin (hs-cTnT) assays have been reported in elderly patients without ...
Recent studies have suggested that there may be large diurnal variation in cardiac troponin T (cTnT) concentrations measured with a high sensitive assay.
One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It is a cardiac-specific protein that binds to TROPOMYOSIN. It is released from damaged or injured heart muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Defects in the gene encoding troponin T result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.
One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It inhibits F-actin-myosin interactions.
One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex of skeletal muscle. It is a calcium-binding protein.
One of the minor protein components of skeletal muscle. Its function is to serve as the calcium-binding component in the troponin-tropomyosin B-actin-myosin complex by conferring calcium sensitivity to the cross-linked actin and myosin filaments.
A protein found in the thin filaments of muscle fibers. It inhibits contraction of the muscle unless its position is modified by TROPONIN.
