Abstract Highly purified sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) has been prepared from dog hearts and has been incubated with the triplet probe erythrosinyl isothiocyanate to specifically label the Ca2+-stimulated ATPase (Ca2+-ATPase) of the SR. The rotational mobility of the Ca2+-ATPase has been studied in this erythrosin-labelled SR using time-resolved phosphorescence polarization. Qualitatively, the mobility of the cardiac Ca2+-ATPase resembles that of skeletal muscle SR Ca2+-ATPase. Addition of Ca2+ to SR affects the mobility of the Ca2+-ATPase in a way consistent with a segment of the ATPase altering its orientation relative to the plane of the membrane. Phosphorylation of phospholamban in cardiac SR by the purified catalytic subunit of cAMP-dependent protein kinase, which is known to increase the activity of the Ca2+-ATPase by deinhibition, also alters measured anisotropy. The changes observed are not compatible with dissociation of the Ca2+-ATPase from phospholamban after the latter is phosphorylated. The data are more consistent with phospholamban associating with the Ca2+-ATPase following phosphorylation, or more complex models in which only the hydrophilic domain of phospholamban binds with and dissociates from the Ca2+-ATPase.
