Troponin C is the Ca2+-receptive protein located on the thin filament of striated and cardiac muscle. We have determined the amino acid sequence of troponin C obtained from porcine cardiac muscle by sequencing and aligning the lysyl endopeptidase and Staphylococcus aureus V-8 protease peptides. It was composed of 161 amino acid residues with a blocked N-terminus. The sequence of porcine cardiac troponin C was identical with that of bovine cardiac troponin C.
