Calcium Gradient Dependent Pyrophosphate Formation by Sarcoplasmic Vesicles

  • Wilhelm Hasselbach and Andrea Migala


Pyrophosphate Synthesis, Sarcoplasmic Reticulum, Calcium Accumulation The vesicles of the sarcoplasmic membranes synthesize pyrophosphate from inorganic phosphate. Pyrophosphate synthesis proceeds as long as a calcium gradient is maintained across the vesicular membranes. Pyrophosphate synthesis is inhibited by low concentrations of nucleoside triphosphates.
