Muscle type specific expression of tropomyosin
isoforms in bovine skeletal muscles.
Non-significant differences were found between the two experimental groups in the plasma protein content of fetoprotein, the six haptoglobin isotypes, serotransferrin isotypes 1, 2, 3, 5 and tropomyosin
Most HCMP patients are supposed to carry mutations in their genes coding for contractile proteins like beta myosin heavy chain or tropomyosin
Hypersensitive humans may express a severe reaction to certain antigens, the most known being tropomyosin
and chitin of crustacean arthropods.
We have identified [beta]-actin, tropomyosin
, gelsolin and myosin (non-muscle) as the binding partners of MT-3.
Also, if we think of actin as bacon wraps, the actin would be the hot dog, the bacon wrapped around it is the tropomyosin
, and the troponin is the toothpick.
The panel on dietetic products, nutrition and allergies has investigated the issue as regards molluscs, concluding that the muscle protein tropomyosin
was a key allergen, especially as it is heat-resistant and "not reliably reduced by food processing".
The most common cause of shellfish allergies is the production in the body of antibodies designed to fight against tropomyosin
, a protein found in shellfish muscles.
Some of these characterized allergens are associated with digestive enzymes and other internal body proteins, such as tropomyosin

In studies conducted at EntreMed, tropomyosin
was shown to interact with Endostatin protein in laboratory and mouse studies.
