The extra ATPase and calcium uptake activities of fragmented sarcoplasmic reticulum may be uncoupled by increasing pH, freezing, and aging if they are measured in the absence of oxalate. As such uncoupling has not been found when oxalate is included in the assay medium, it is suggested that oxalate changes the mechanism of these processes.
