Despite previous reports [McLaughlin (1985) Mol. Biochem. Parasitol. 15, 189-201; Ghosh, Ray, Sarkar and Bhaduri (1990) J. Biol. Chem. 265, 11345-11351; Mazumder, Mukherjee, Ghosh, Ray and Bhaduri (1992) J. Biol. Chem. 267, 18440-18446] suggesting that the plasma-membrane Ca(2+)-ATPases of different trypanosomatids differ from the Ca2+ pumps present in mammalian cells, Trypanosoma cruzi plasma-membrane Ca(2+)-ATPase shares several characteristics with the Ca2+ pumps present in other systems… CONTINUE READING
