Encyclopedia > Calcium ATPase

Calcium ATPase is a form of ATPase which transfers calcium after a muscle has contracted. ATPases are a class of enzymes that catalyze the decomposition of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and a free phosphate ion. ...

We are investigating the hypothesis that the oligomeric state of the calcium ATPase in the sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane is of regulatory significance.
The time dependence of the anisotropy of a covalent phosphorescent label on the calcium ATPase is used to estimate the mole fractions of monomeric, dimeric, tetrameric, and higher order oligomers of the calcium ATPase.
Calcium, the inhibitors thapsigargin and cyclopiazonic acid, and local and general anesthetics have been found to modulate both the activity and the oligomeric state of the calcium ATPase.
