Abstract: Membrane fractions prepared from smooth muscle of the pig stomach (antral part) contain two Ca2+-dependent phosphoprotein intermediates belonging to different Ca2+-transport ATPases. These alkali-labile phosphoproteins can be separated by electrophoresis in acid medium. The 130 kDa phosphoprotein resembles a corresponding protein in the erythrocyte membrane, whereas the 100 kDa protein resembles that of the Ca2+-transport ATPase in sarcoplasmic reticulum from skeletal muscle. These resemblances are expressed in terms of Mr, reaction to La3+ and in a similar proteolytic degradation pattern. The presence of the calmodulin-stimulated ATPase in mixed membranes from smooth muscle is confirmed by its binding of calmodulin and antibodies against erythrocyte Ca2+-transport ATPase, whereas such binding does not occur with proteins present in the presumed endoplasmic reticulum from smooth muscle.
