 Title    Ca2+ Uptake Coupled to Glycogen Phosphorolysis in the Glycogenolytic-Sarcoplasmic Reticulum Complex from Rat Skeletal Muscle  
 Abstract    The glycogenolytic-sarcoplasmic reticulum complex from rat skeletal muscle accumulates C a2+ upon stimulation of glycogen phosphorolysis in the absence of added ATP. It is shown that an efficient C a2+ uptake involves the sequential action of glycogen phosphorylase, phos-phoglucomutase and hexokinase, which generate low concentrations of A TP (approximately 1 -2 ^m) compartm entalized in the immediate vicinity of the sarcoplasmic reticulum C a2+, Mg2+-ATPase (the C a2+ pump). The C a2+ uptake supported by glycogenolysis in this subcel-lular structure is strongly stimulated by micromolar concentrations of AMP, showing that the glycogen phosphorylase associated with this complex is in the dephosphorylated b form. The results point out that the flux through this compartmentalized metabolic pathway should be enhanced in physiological conditions leading to increased A M P concentrations in the sarcoplasm, such as long-lasting contractions and in ischemic muscle.
