<para>
In cardiac muscle, steady-state force-Ca<superscript>2+</superscript> (F-Ca) relations exhibit more cooperativity than that predicted by the single Ca<superscript>2+</superscript> binding site on troponin.  The exact mechanisms underlying this high cooperativity are unknown.  In their 1999 paper, J. Jeremy Rice, Raimond L. Winslow and William C. Hunter present five potential models for force generation in cardiac muscle (see the figures below).  These models were constructed by assuming different subsets of three possible cooperative mechanisms:

<caption>State diagrams for the five models of isometric force generation in cardiac muscle. T represents tropomyosin, TCa is Ca<superscript>2+</superscript> bound tropomyosin, N0, N1, P0 and P1 are the non-permissive and permissive tropomyosin states.</caption>
</informalfigure>

<para>
All the models are similar in that they are structured around a functional unit of troponin, tropomyosin and actin.  Tropomyosin can exist in four states, two permissive or two non-permissive (referring to whether or not the actin sites are available for binding to myosin and hence cross bridge formation).  Depending on the model, one or more cross bridges exist, and these are either weakly-bound (non-force generating) or strongly bound (force generating).
</para>

<para>
The paper (cited below) tests the behaviours of the five models of force generation in cardiac myocytes.  The first two models provide a baseline of performance for comparison.  Models 3 to 5 are developed to incorporate more cooperative mechanisms.  From the results of these simulations, which were compared to and consistent with experimental data, it is hypothesised that multiple mechanisms of cooperativity may coexist and contribute to the responses of cardiac muscle.
