The (Na+ + K+)ATPase [EC] from mouse plasmocytoma MOPC 173 ascitic cells was resistant to ouabain in purified plasma membranes as 50% of the enzyme activity (E 1/2) was inhibited by 120 .mu.M ouabain. After 2 treatments by a sucrose-EDTA-imidazole buffer, the plasma membrane-bound enzyme recovered in the pellet was much more sensitive to ouabain inhibition (E 1/2 = 0.4 .mu.M). The original (Na+ + K+) ATPase sensitivity to ouabain can be restored by addition of concentrated supernatants from EDTA-treated membranes plus Ca2+ and Mg2+ to the pellet.
