ATP-driven calcium uptake was studied in basal-lateral membranes and in microsomal fractions, isolated from pig kidney cortex. The uptake is strongly enhanced in conditions where calcium inside the vesicles is precipitated by oxalate (5 mM) or phosphate (40 mM). Both anions were equally effective for the stimulation of calcium uptake in the microsomes but oxalate was less effective than phosphate in the basal-lateral membrane fraction. The active calcium pumps in the renal basal-lateral and… CONTINUE READING
