A soluble Mg-dependent ATPase, similar to the mitochondrial ATPase from beef heart, has been isolated from heart mitochondria of salmon (Salmo salar). The salmon heart ATPase has 5 subunits with molecular weights similar to the beef heart enzyme, but the Stoke's radius of the intact salmon enzyme is larger. The salmon heart ATPase is less temperature labile(More)
