Serum Troponin – a Sensitive Indicator of the Cardiac Involvement in Septic States


Troponins (Tn) are protein associations located on the filaments of the movement-generating apparatus in the striate (both cardiac, and skeletal) musculature. There are three distinct proteins coded by separate genes: TnC, TnI, TnT. Th ey are important regulatory components of the myocardial contraction machine. Their nomenclature reflects the role each of them plays in contraction [1]. […]
