Abstract

Anion and cation channels present in the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) are believed to be necessary to maintain the electroneutrality of SR membrane during Ca2+ uptake by the SR Ca2+ pump (SERCA). Here we incorporated canine cardiac SR ion channels into lipid bilayers and studied the effects of tamoxifen and other antiestrogens on these channels. A Cl- channel was identified exhibiting multiple subconductance levels which could be divided into two primary conductance bands. Tamoxifen decreases the time the channel spends in its higher, voltage-sensitive band and the mean channel current. The lower, voltage-insensitive, conductance band is not affected by tamoxifen, nor is a K+ channel present in the cardiac SR preparation. By examining SR Ca2+ uptake, SERCA ATPase activity, and SR ion channels in the same preparation, we also estimated SERCA transport current, SR Cl- and K+ currents, and the density of SERCA, Cl -, and K+ channels in cardiac SR membranes.
