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. ... General Name, Symbol, Number calcium, Ca, 20 Chemical series alkaline earth metals Group, Period, Block 2, 4, s Appearance silvery white Atomic mass 40. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Muscular system. ...
Cardiac muscle is a type of involuntary mononucleated, or uninucleated, striated muscle found exclusively within the heart. ... Drawing of a cell membrane A component of every biological cell, the cell membrane (or plasma membrane) is a thin and structured bilayer of phospholipid and protein molecules that envelopes the cell. ...
We are investigating the hypothesis that the oligomeric state of the calciumATPase in the sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane is of regulatory significance.
The time dependence of the anisotropy of a covalent phosphorescent label on the calciumATPase is used to estimate the mole fractions of monomeric, dimeric, tetrameric, and higher order oligomers of the calciumATPase.
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 calciumATPase.
