With the aim of comparative estimation of efficacy of well-known inhibitors of energy-dependent Ca(2+)-transporting systems their effects were investigated on the activity of purified Ca2+, Mg(2+)-ATPase of the myometrium cell plasma membranes. From the approved inhibitors (eosin Y, o-vanadate, thapsigargin, cyclopiazonic acid, ruthenium red, sodium azide) only eosin Y and o-vanadate are potent inhibitors of myometrium sarcolemma Ca(2+)-pump: the values of Ki equal 0.8 and 4.7 microM, respectively. Thapsigargin and cyclopiazonic acid as well as ruthenium red in concentrations inhibiting, respectively, endo(sarco)plasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-pump and energy-dependent Ca(2+)-transport in mitochondria had no effect on the Ca2+, Mg(2+)-ATPase of the uterus smooth muscle cell plasma membrane. Sodium azide (10 mM) blocking completely Ca(2+)-transport in mitochondria inhibited activity of the plasma membrane Ca(2+)-transporting ATPase by 14%.
