Endocytic vesicles contain a calmodulin-activated Ca2+ pump that mediates the inhibition of acidification by calcium
MetadataShow full item record
Endocytic vesicles isolated from rabbit reticulocytes contained an intrinsic Ca2+-pump activity that was dependent on ATP, activated by calmodulin and inhibited by vanadate. 45Ca2+ uptake and acidification studies indicated that acidification of the endocytic vesicles inversely correlated with the Ca2+-pump activity. Acidification was inhibited by externally added Ca2+ and calmodulin and activated by vanadate and EGTA. It is suggested that intravesicular Ca2+ can act as a modulator of endocytic vesicle acidification. © 1990.
