Studies of Ca2+ release from sarcoplasmic reticulum Academic Article uri icon


  • Our studies of Ca2+ release have shown that three classes of compounds--quercetin, which inhibits Ca2+ release by reversal of the Ca2+ pump, H+ ionophores and DCCD, which affect proton gradients, and lipophilic anions, which act to oppose a separation of membrane surface charges--all have potential in probing the mechanism of Ca2+ release from sarcoplasmic reticulum.
