Abstract: Myricetin, a flavonoid, potently inhibits human erythrocyte plasma membrane Ca2+-pumping ATPase activity: half-maximal inhibition of the basal and calmodulin-stimulated activity is obtained with 6 μM myricetin. Inhibition of the Ca2+-ATPase by myricetin is observed at all concentrations of free Ca2+ from 10-8M to 10-5M. The extent of inhibition of the Ca2+-ATPase is dependent on the time of preincubation of the plasma membranes with myricetin. Inhibition of the Ca2+-ATPase by myricetin is not reversed by excess calmodulin. It is concluded that calmodulin does not mediate myricetin's inhibition of human erythrocyte plasma membrane Ca2+-pumping ATPase.
