Investigations the role of SH-groups of Ca2+-transport systems molecules in secretory cells functioning have special significance because of: (i) Ca2+ cations have extraordinary importance in secretory process; (ii) SH-groups have importance to maintain of lipid bilaer structure [5,11]; (iii) one of the most sensitive links, obviously, for all membrane Ca2+transporting systems are SH-groups of aminoacid’s residues since its: * have high reactive ability [9]; ** determine fourth structure of protein molecule [9], besides its are form part of regulatory domains of these transport systems and especially Na+-Ca2+-exchanger molecule dogs cardiomyocites [1]. It has also known that SH-groups are form part of large intracellular loop f of Na+-Ca2+exchanger molecule [10]. Availability of SH-groups in the Nat Ca2+exchanger molecule of secretory cell membrane in Chironomus larvae salivary gland we have supposed on the base of changes in Na+-Ca2+exchange current at alkalisation of external solution [6,8] and influence of Cd2+,Ni2+ and La3+[3]. Therefore the target of this study was to investigate the influence of SH-groups specific blocator — p-chloromercuribenzoate (PCMB) on the Na+-Ca2+exchange in the secretory cell membrane of investigated glands.
