In situ monitoring of kinetics of metabolic conversion of ATP to ADP catalyzed by MgATPases of muscle Gastrocnemius skinned fibers using micellar electrokinetic chromatography.

Abstract : A method for the in situ measurement of the kinetics of ATP metabolic transformation using capillary electrophoresis (CE) has been developed. The depletion of ATP and formation of ADP were monitored in situ by using saponin-permeabilized muscle fibers. The method of micellar electrokinetic chromatography, employing reversed electroosmotic flow by cationic surfactant and reversed-polarity mode, provided an efficient and reproducible separation of nucleotides and enabled kinetic analysis of the reaction to be performed in a large range of nucleotide concentrations that approaches physiological concentrations of ATP in the muscle cells, without the need for precipitation of proteins prior to sample application. The analytes were detected at a nM level with a reproducibility of about 7%. This reproducibility enabled the comparison of different competing kinetic models of ATP conversion to ADP and the results show that the MgATPase activity in the fast-twitch gastrocnemius muscle followed biphasic kinetics that corresponds to the allosteric character of regulation of the enzyme(s) activity at physiological ATP concentrations. The results also confirmed that the combination of minimal sample volume requirements, rapid measurement and reproducibility makes the micellar CE a valuable tool for the analysis of biological fluids and understanding the processes of biological interest.
