Effect of eosin Y on ATPase activity of actomyosine complex of uterus smooth muscle

R. D. Labyntseva, S. O. Kosterin

The effect of eosin Y (2,4,5,7 – tetrabromofluorescein; 0.1–100 ?­M) on ATPase activity smooth muscle actomyosine was studied. The inhibition coefficient i50 of ATPase activity with eosin Y was 0.74 ± 0.07 ?­M. The inhibitor decreased Vmax of actomyosine ATPase for ATP, but no influence on affinity of actomyosine for ATP was observed. It is suggested that eosin Y inhibits actomyosine ATPase activity noncompetitively in respect of ATP.
