Rotational dynamics of the Ca-ATPase in sarcoplasmic reticulum studied by time-resolved phosphorescence anisotropy.

We have investigated the microsecond rotational motions of the Ca-ATPase in rabbit skeletal sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR), by measuring the time-resolved phosphorescence anisotropy of erythrosin 5-isothiocyanate (ERITC) covalently and specifically attached to the enzyme. Over a wide range of solvent conditions and temperatures, the phosphorescence anisotropy… CONTINUE READING
