The nemaline myopathy-causing E117K mutation in β-tropomyosin reduces thin filament activation.
The effect of the nemaline myopathy-causing E117K mutation in β-tropomyosin (TM) on the structure and function of this regulatory protein was studied. The E117K mutant was found to have indistinguishable actin affinity compared with wild-type (WT) and similar secondary structure as measured by circular dichroism. However the E117K mutation significantly lowered maximum activation of actomyosin ATPase. To explain the molecular mechanism of impaired ATPase activation, WT and E117K TMs were cova...Expand abstract
