A method is described for studying the coupling ratio of the Na+/K+ pump, i.e., the ratio of pump-mediated fluxes of Na+ and K+, in a reconstituted system. The method is based on the comparison of the pump-generated current with the...

In liposomes with reconstituted shark Na,K-ATPase produced to contain sucrose addition of external Na+ and ATP induce an uncoupled Na+-efflux on inside-out oriented pumps which can be inhibited by digitoxigenin. This flux mode is found to be electrogenic and accompanied...

The Ca2+ transport adenosine triphosphatase of sarcoplasmic reticulum was reconstituted in unilamellar liposomes prepared by reverse-phase evaporation. The size of the resulting proteoliposomes was similar to that of native sarcoplasmic reticulum vesicles, but their protein content was much lower, with...

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) has been employed to determine the effect of five commonly employed extrinsic potential-sensitive probes on phase transitions of multilamellar suspensions of L-alpha-dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC). At mol% values of less than five, the effect of these probes on...
