|Abstract:||We studied the effect of muscle acylphosphatase on the Ca2+ pumping ATPase of heart sarcolemma. Acylphosphatase addition to calmodulin-depleted sarcolemmal vesicles produced a significant increase in the rate of Ca(2+)-dependent ATP hydrolysis, even higher than obtained with exogenously added calmodulin. Maximal stimulation (about four fold over basal value) was obtained with 550 units/mg vesicle protein, a concentration that fall within the physiological range. Conversely, similar amounts of acylphosphatase decreased the rate of ATP-dependent Ca2+ transport into the sarcolemmal vesicles. The maximal statistically significant inhibition of Ca2+ uptake was observed with the same acylphosphatase concentration that gave the maximal stimulation of Ca(2+)-ATPase activity. From these findings acylphosphatase appears to reduce the efficiency of heart sarcolemmal Ca2+ pump with an impairment of the coupling between ATP hydrolysis and Ca2+ transport. A possible mechanism of this effect is discussed.|
