reconstituted into liposomes in the presence of transmembrane Na+ gradient

N. М. Slinchenko, S. O. Kosterin,  V. F. Gorchev

Effect of Na+ gradient directed out of proteoliposomes on Ca2+, Mg2+-dependent ATP-hydrolase and Mg2+, ATP-depedent Ca2+-transporting activities of reconstituted Ca2+, Mg2+-ATPase from the myometrium cell plasma membrane was studied. It was established, that transmembrane Na+ gradient did not affect both catalytic and transporting enzyme activities.
