Abstract

1. Troponin I isolated from fresh cardiac muscle by affinity chromatography contains about 1.9 mol of covalently bound phosphate/mol. Similar preparations of white-skeletal-muscle troponin I contain about 0.5 mol of phosphate/mol. 2. A 3':5'-cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase and a protein phosphatase are associated with troponin isolated from cardiac muscle. 3. Bovine cardiac 3':5'-cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase catalyses the phosphorylation of cardiac troponin I 30 times faster than white-skeletal-muscle troponin I. 4. Troponin I is the only component of cardiac troponin phosphorylated at a significant rate by the endogenous or a bovine cardiac 3':5'-cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase. 5. Phosphorylase kinase catalyses the phosphorylation of cardiac troponin I at similar or slightly faster rates than white-skeletal-muscle troponin I. 6. Troponin C inhibits the phosphorylation of cardiac and skeletal troponin I catalysed by phosphorylase kinase and the phosphorylation of white skeletal troponin I catalysed by 3':5'-cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase; the phosphorylation of cardiac troponin I catalysed by the latter enzyme is not inhibited.
