The enzymatic basis for the Ca2+ pump in human red cells is an ATPase with hysteretic properties. The Ca2+-ATPase shifts slowly between a ground state deficient in calmodulin and an active state saturated with calmodulin, and rate constants for the reversible shifts of state were recently determined at different Ca2+ concentrations (Scharff, O. and Foder, B. (1982) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 691, 133-143). In order to study whether the Ca2+ pump in intact red cells also exhibits hysteretic… CONTINUE READING
