Using carbachol contracture as the experimental model for testing the properties of the intracellular calcium store in intact tissue and 45Ca2+ accumulation in the chemically skinned by digitonin smooth muscle cells isolated from oestrogen-dominated rat uterus the evidence for the presence of Mg2+, ATP-dependent Ca2+ pump in the non-mitochondrial store has(More)
Comparative investigation of sensitivity of calcium pumps of sarcolemma, endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria of the smooth muscle to some inhibitors of energy-dependent Ca(2+)-transporting systems has been carried out in experiments made using the isotope method (45Ca2+) on the fraction of plasmatic membranes and suspension of chemically scanned cells of(More)
In experiments performed on digitonin-treated myometrium cells the existence of intracellular energy-dependent Ca(2+)-transporting system has been identified. The mitochondria-linked energy-dependent accumulation of Ca2+ was inhibited by ruthenium red and sodium azide with Ki of 0.7 +/- 0.3 microM and 1.1 +/- 0.4 mM, respectively. The Ca2+ ionophore A23187(More)
The effects of ruthenium red, pH, and sodium ions on active and passive Ca2+ transport were studied in digitonin-treated (0.1 mg/ml) suspension of myometrial cells using radiolabeled 45Ca2+. The inhibitor of mitochondrial Ca2+ accumulation ruthenium red (10 microM) suppressed active accumulation of the cation in permeabilized myocytes by 78-85%. Ruthenium(More)
The inhibiting effect of Pb2+, Zn2+ and Cd2+ on Mg(2+)-dependent superprecipitation and ATPase activity of myometrium actomyosin. The inhibiting effect of heavy metals cations on the both processes satisfies the succession: Pb2+ > Zn2+ > Cd2+. Cadmium and zinc ions in concentration of 1 mM stimulate the initial velocity (v0) of Mg(2+)-dependent(More)
A method has been proposed for the kinetic analysis of the relaxation phase of mechanical response of smooth muscle. The method implies linearization of the entire mechano-kinetic relaxation curve using the coordinates ln[(fm-f)/f]; ln t (where fm and f are the maximal and the actual values of force within the relaxation phase respectively) with subsequent(More)
The effects of Ca(2+)-precipitating anions (oxalate and phosphate) and effective inhibitors of endo/sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium pump (thapsigargin and cyclopiazonic acid) on azide-insensitive (5 mM) Mg2+,ATP-dependent Ca2+ accumulation in microsomes of ureter smooth muscle cells were studied. Oxalate (0-20 mM) and phosphate (0-60 mM) stimulate(More)
In order of estimating some regularities of ethanol direct (effectory) effect to transmembrane calcium metabolism in the myometrium the action of this substance on the energy-dependent Ca(2+)-transporting systems of the uterine myocytes subcellular structures has been studied. The systems of Mg2+, ATP-dependent Ca2+ transport regarding their sensitivity to(More)
The inhibiting effect of Pb2+ (0.1-1.0 mM) on superprecipitation and ATPase activity of myometrium actomyosin has been shown. It is found out that of 11 studied chelators of bivalent cations only monosodium salt of 4-guanidino-1-hydroxybutyliden-1.1-bisphosphonic acid can efficiently renews the value of superprecipitation and ATPase activity of actomyosin(More)
