Plasma membrane calcium adenosine triphosphatase (Ca(2+)-ATPase) is an energy-dependent protein responsible for transporting cytosolic calcium across the plasma membrane. Multiple plasma membrane Ca(2+)-ATPase isoforms are expressed from four genes (PMCA1-4) and alternative mRNA splicing. We have studied PMCA gene expression in bovine lens epithelium tissues by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, Southern blot, and Northern blot hybridization. All four PMCA genes are expressed in… CONTINUE READING
