The Lipid Requirement of the Ca2+/Mg2+-ATPase in the Erythrocyte Membrane

  • Ben Roelofsen

Abstract

The Ca2+/Mg2+-ATPase found in erythrocyte membranes consists of a 140,000-molecularweight protein that spans the lipid bilayer. This system has been shown to be identical to the “Ca pump,” which maintains an outward-directed 10,000-fold Ca2+ gradient over the membrane (Schatzmann and Burgin, 1978; Roufogalis, 1979).
