Abstract The effect of accumulation of Ca2+ at physiological concentrations (10(-8)-10(-6) M) on the rates of ATP synthesis and hydrolysis in rat liver mitochondria was studied. An addition of 5 x 10(-7) M Ca2+ resulted in the maximal rates of synthesis and hydrolysis of ATP. Decrease in the concentration of Ca2+ to 10-8 M or its increase to 5 x 10(-6) M inhibited oxidative phosphorylation and ATP hydrolysis. It was found that the rate of oxidative phosphorylation correlated with the phosphorylation level of a 3.5-kD peptide in the mitochondrial inner membrane on varying the Ca2+ concentration. The possible regulation of oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria by Ca2+ is discussed.
