In vitro dose dependent inverse effect of nantenine on synaptosomal membrane K+-p-NPPase activity.


The effect of nantenine, an aporphine alkaloid, on ATPase K+-dependent dephosphorylation was evaluated using p-nitrophenylphosphate (p-NPP) as substrate. Basal K+-p-NPPase activity was significantly increased with 3 x 10(-4) M, remained unchanged with 3 x 10(-6) M, 3 x 10(-5) M but was reduced with 7.5 x 10(-4) M and 1 x 10(-3) M nantenine, whereas Mg2+-p… (More)
