Abstract: To examine the thermal instability and the role of sulfhydryl (SH) oxidation on sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca(2+)-ATPase function, crude homogenates were prepared from the white portion of the gastrocnemius (WG) adult rat muscles (n = 9) and incubated in vitro for < or =60 min either at a normal resting body temperature (37 degrees C) or at a temperature indicative of exercise-induced hyperthermia (41 degrees C) with DTT and without DTT (CON). In general, treatment with DTT resulted in higher Ca(2+)-ATPase an…
