- ... Protein expression of plasma membrane Ca2+-ATPases (PMCAs) and the putative Golgi secretory pathway Ca2+-ATPase (SPCA) was examined in rat mammary tissue. As lactation started, PMCA protein expression increased dramatically, and this increased expression paralleled milk production. Mammary PMCA was primarily PMCA2b but was apprx4,000 daltons larger than expected. RT-PCR showed that the primary mam ...
