Abstract: Insulin-stimulated synthesis of plasma membraneous "signal" ATP (psATP) from ADP and P(i) in oxidation coupled with that of NADH was detected in a preparation of plasma membranes from human erythrocytes; psATP was formed at concentrations of 10(-8)-10(-9) M. Effect of medicinal plasmapheresis on ability of erythrocyte membranes to produce psATP was studied. The rate of psATP biosynthesis was estimated in healthy volunteers and in patients with various diseases: nonspecific aortic arteritis, bronchial asthma, peritonitis, myasthenia before and after plasmapheresis. Distinct values of basal content of ATP (without insulin) and insulin-stimulated biosynthesis of ATP were detected in volunteers. Elevation of ATP biosynthesis, in response to insulin effect, was equal to 8.029 +/- 0.163 nmol/mg of membrane protein per min. Estimation of the psATP biosynthesis rate in patients with various pathological states enabled to detect markedly that psATP content tends to increase after plasmapheresis. Absolute values of psATP content were distinctly lower in these patients than those in healthy volunteers, while after plasmapheresis these parameters approached the normal level. Estimation of the insulin-stimulated synthesis of psATP may serve as a valid criterion of plasmapheresis efficiency.
