Induction of mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake by mersalyl.

Abstract

1. The addition of mersalyl to aged mitochondria from rat kidneys, is followed by induction of an ATP-driven Ca2+ uptake which is sensitive to Ruthenium Red. 2. This Ca2+ influx requires Mg2+, albumin, and is accomplished by membrane energization. 3. The activation of Ca2+ uptake by the mercurial in the presence of ATP can be explained if it is assumed that… (More)
