Metabolic characteristics of alpha-toxin-permeabilized smooth muscle.

Abstract

Rabbit portal veins were permeabilized using Staphylococcus aureus alpha-toxin, and adenosinetriphosphatase (ATPase) was measured as the formation of [3H]ADP, [3H]AMP, and [3H]adenosine from [3H]ATP in the solution bathing the muscle. The resting ATPase (1.96 +/- 0.15 mM/min, n = 13) is approximately 5-10 times higher than that measured in Triton X-100… (More)
