Accelerating effect of ATP on calcium binding to sarcoplasmic reticulum ATPase.

The rise of intrinsic fluorescence due to calcium binding to sarcoplasmic reticulum ATPase occurs with a kobs of approximately 2 s-1 at pH 6.0, which is much lower than that observed at neutral pH. This is consistent with a H+-Ca2+ competition for the high-affinity sites. An accelerating effect of ATP on the calcium-induced transition can be clearly demonstrated at that pH. Nonhydrolyzable nucleotides, such as AMP-PNP, do not elicit the same response. Acetylphosphate also accelerates the calcium-induced fluorescence rise, demonstrating that this effect is limited to substrates that are able to form the phosphorylated enzyme intermediate. This effect, which is attributed to occupancy of the phosphorylation domain of the catalytic site, is distinct from the known secondary activation of enzyme turnover which is produced by ATP and by inactive nucleotide analogs, but not by acetylphosphate.[1]
