Plasma membrane Ca2+,Mg2+-ATPase is an important element of general myometrium tonus control mechanism, which also makes a contribution to muscle tension relaxation after its contraction. Expiriments were done on the myometrial cell plasma membrane suspension, which was treated with 0.1% digitonin solution. The authors have investigated the inhibitory action of calix[4]arene C-90 (5,11,17,23-tetra(trifluor)methyl(phenylsulphonylimino)-methylamino-25,26,27,28-tetra propoxi-calix[4]arene) on the Ca2+,Mg2+-ATPase activity (the magnitude of І0.5 was 20.2 ± 0.5 mkM). The inhibitory action of calix[4]arene C-90 on the activity of Ca2+, Mg2+-ATPase is explained as cooperative action of four trifluormethyl(phenylsulfonylimino)methylamino groups that are spatially oriented on the calix[4]-arene base rather than with the action of tetraphenol macrocycle or separate pharmacophore sulphonilamidin groups. Conside­ring established kinetic pattern of calix[4]arene C-90 inhibitory action on the plasma membrane Ca2+,Mg2+-ATPase­ activity, stationary kinetical model of basal calcium concentration control in unexcited uterus myocytes was develo­ped. It is assumed that obtained results may be promising for creation of new generation («supramolecular») pharmacological agent - uterus basal tonus stimulator – on the base of calix[4]arene C-90.

Key words: Ca2+,Mg2+-ATPase, plasma membrane, smooth muscle cells, myometrium, enzymatic hydrolysis of ATP, kinetic properties of ATPase, calix[4]arenes.
