Troponin C is a calcium-binding protein with similar homology to calmodulin. It forms part of the troponin complex. The binding of calcium produces a conformational change which modulates the activity of other proteins. This is vital to the functioning of skeletal and cardiac muscle where formation of the complex triggers activation of contractile proteins.
