 Title    Permeability of Plasma Membrane Vesicles to Ouabain and Mg2+ as a Factor Determining Rate of Binding of Ouabain to Na+ and K+ Dependent ATPase  
 Abstract    N a+, K+-ATPase of the plasma membrane isolated from sheep kidney medulla exhibits functio­ nal asymmetry for the cardiac glycoside ouabain. In this vesicular membrane preparation the rate of binding o f ouabain was slow (time constant > 60 min) when the vesicles were incubated in the presence o f isotonic sucrose. Upon treatment o f the preparation with hypoosmotic shock or phos-pholipase A the initial rate of ouabain binding was enhanced at least 3 fold. In equilibrium a concentration of the ouabain-enzyme-complex was obtained which was about twofold that of the untreated vesicles. This result suggests two types o f ouabain binding sites with an approximate stoichiometry of 1 to 1. The stoichiometry seems to be maintained at high concentrations of ouabain where binding curves show a biphasic time course. Additional information about hetero­ geneity of binding sites comes through experiments in which the vesicles were treated with Mg2+ prior to the addition o f ouabain. A minor fraction of the binding sites were occupied by ouabain only after longtime incubation with Mg2+.
