CaATPase content is lower in cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum isolated from old rats.

Abstract

The rate of oxalate-facilitated ATP-dependent calcium uptake by the calcium pump, calcium adenosinetriphosphatase (CaATPase), is 30-40% slower in the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) isolated from the hearts of senescent Fischer 344 male rats. To determine the underlying mechanism, cardiac SR was isolated from 11- to 12-mo-old (adult) and 22- to 24-mo-old… (More)
