    ..Both might affect the calcium binding or the retaining of the conformation for its function. Results presented here will be useful to understand the interaction site between the tropomyosin and troponin complex. ..

    ..Similar evidence suggests that one of the genes associated with mild effects on lattice assembly may code for tropomyosin. Many of the newly identified genes are likely to play critical roles in muscle development and function. ..

    ..These results strongly suggest that tropomyosin and troponin are the actin-linked regulators for contraction of ovarian muscle in the C. elegans reproductive system. ..

    ..Sterility caused by RNAi of pat-3 and ECM molecules was suppressed by increased IP(3) signaling. Our data suggest that the cell-ECM interaction controls ovulation via IP(3) signaling. ..

    ..These combined biochemical and in vivo studies of mutant animals demonstrate that this troponin is essential for proper muscle function during development. ..

    ..Our results suggest the body wall genes have evolved following duplication of the pharynx gene and provide important data about gene duplication and functional differentiation of nematode troponin I isoforms. ..
