In the experiments carried out with the suspension of the myometrium cell plasmatic membranes treated with 0.1% digitonin solution we investigated the influence of сalixarene С-107 (5,17-diamino(2-pyridyl)methylphosphono-11,23-di-tret-butyl-26,28-dihydroxy-25,27-dipropoxycalix[4]arene) on the Nа+,K+-АТРase activity. It was shown that this calixarene increased the affinity of the enzyme for the sodium pump conventional inhibitor – ouabain: the magnitudes of the seeming­ constant of inhibition I0.5 changed from 26.9 ± 1.3 mM to 10.9 ± 0.6 mM. However the ouabain itself did not influence on the affinity of the Nа+,K+-АТРase for сalixarene С-107.
