Topology of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase: an infrared study of thermal denaturation and limited proteolysis.

Sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase structure and organization in the membrane has been studied by infrared spectroscopy by decomposition of the amide I band. Besides the component bands assignable to secondary structure elements such as alpha-helix, beta-sheet, etc...., two unusual bands, one at 1,645 cm(-1) in H2O buffer and the other at 1,625 cm(-1) in… CONTINUE READING
