Abstract

NOWADAYS, it is fairly well established that calcium not only affects the excitability of the nerve cell membrane1 but that it is an important constituent of the membrane itself2. In this communication we contrast adenosine triphosphate (ATP) dependent calcium binding by the microsomal fraction of brain and liver cells and the nerve ending fraction of neurones with that by the sarcoplasmic reticulum of muscle cells and the mitochondrial fractions of brain and liver cells.
