    Notes: To study the post-translational fate of arginine permease (Can1p), the gene coding for this transport protein was placed behind a constitutive promoter of plasma membrane ATPase (PMA1) and furnished with a Myc tag. In exponential-phase cells the amount of Can1p is constant, although turnover can be demonstrated. A rapid decrease in transport activity during the early stationary phase is paralleled by a corresponding net degradation of the protein. The amount of Can1p present in exponential cells grown on various nitrogen sources is the same, except in arginine-grown cells, in which the amount of the protein is markedly lower. This occurs solely when arginine serves as nitrogen source but not as an immediate consequence of, for example, arginine addition to cells growing on other nitrogen sources. It was demonstrated that Can1p is phosphorylated. Since Can1p expression under the PMA1 promoter is glucose-dependent, the amount of the permease expressed in high-glucose-grown cells is higher than in low-glucose-grown ones. Only a part of the Can1p overexpressed in high-glucose-grown cells is phosphorylated, while in low-glucose-grown cells the phosphorylated form probably represents the majority of Can1p. The permease phosphorylation or dephosphorylation is not related to transinhibition. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: Abstract The dependence of the Ca2+-ATPase activity of sarcoplasmic reticulum vesicles upon the intravesicular concentration of calcium accumulated after active uptake was studied. The internal calcium concentration was modified by addition of the ionophore A23187 at the steady state of accumulation. About half of the calcium accumulated could be released at low ionophore concentration without any concomitant activation of the Ca2+-ATPase. This population of calcium might consist of calcium free in the lumen of the vesicles or bound to the bilayer at sites which do not interact with the ATPase activity. At higher concentrations of ionophore (above 1.75 nmol A23187/mg protein) the release of calcium activated this enzyme. This phenomenon was independent of the extravesicular calcium concentration and might be explained by assuming second species of calcium ions bound to the inner side of the membrane and in close functional interaction with the Ca2+-ATPase.
