The total percentage entering under the RSMS and STNI categories that exclude Melbourne is less than 40 per cent of all those entering under the SSRM schemes.
sTnI exists as 2 different isoforms, slow sTnI (ssTnI) and fast sTnI (fsTnI), produced in slow- (ST) and fast-twitch (FT) fibers, respectively.
The usefulness of sTnI assays depends on the ability of the monoclonal antibody (mAb) to detect intact ssTnI and fsTnI and any of their modified forms.
Exposure times of Western blots were chosen to maximize visualization of intact sTnI and/or its degradation products; consequently, comparisons of the intensities of bands from different patients were not possible.
Using WB-DSA, we have detected both slow and fast isoforms of sTnI in patients with skeletal muscle disorders, raising the possibility that their detection may eventually provide useful diagnostic information.
We previously showed, in severely hypoxemic dogs, that proteolysis of sTnI occurs in the diaphragm, demonstrating that proteolytic fragments form in the muscle cell before release (16).
The ability to monitor independently both sTnI isoforms permits tracking of injury to each fiber type.
The amino acid sequences for feline and swine sTnI, unlike those for human, rat, rabbit, and mouse sTnI, are unknown, but fsTnI and ssTnI show sequence homologies of 95% and 98%, respectively, between mammals.
In this preliminary study, using WB-DSA, we were able to detect sTnI in serum from a patient with rhabdomyolysis.
Acute renal failure, compartmental syndrome, and cardiac abnormalities are common complications that can affect either the release or clearance of sTnI (17).
Additionally, the antibody specific to both cTnI and sTnI (3C5.10) stained all heart homogenates (Fig.
