Calcium inhibition of brush border alkaline phosphatase activity in hymenolepis diminuta



Calcium inhibition of brush border alkaline phosphatase activity in hymenolepis diminuta



Zeitschrift fuer Parasitenkunde 71(6): 759-764



The brush border membrane of Hymenolepis diminuta contains several Ca2+-dependent enzymes. Following our isolation of a Ca2+-dependent modulator protein we examined the kinetic properties of the brush border marker alkaline phosphatase from fractionated and crude tegument. We show that this enzyme is inhibited by Ca2+ concentrations approaching those in the calcareous corpuscles of H. diminuta.
