How do Ca2+ ions pass through the sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane.

Abstract

We propose an overview of the mechanism of Ca2+ transport through the sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane via the Ca(2+)-ATPase. We describe cytoplasmic calcium binding, calcium occlusion in the membrane and lumenal calcium dissociation. A channel-like structure is discussed and related to structural data on the membranous domain of the Ca(2+)-ATPase.
