    ..Thus, Tmod3 and -4 compensate for the absence of Tmod1 structurally but not functionally. We conclude that Tmod1 is a novel regulator of skeletal muscle physiology. ..

    ..We concluded that the M-protein expression is strongly and rapidly repressed by T3 in cardiomyocytes, which represents an important aspect for the basis of T3-dependent sarcomeric deleterious effects in the heart. ..
