We have analyzed the expression pattern of Na,K-ATPase alpha and beta subunit isoforms within the rodent and primate central nervous system. Membrane fractions prepared from rat cerebral cortical type-1 astrocytes and rat cerebellar granule and hippocampal neurons were characterized by immunoblot analyses using a panel of alpha and beta subunit(More)
We have isolated and characterized cDNA clones encoding the human retinal guanylyl cyclase (retGC), a novel member of the membrane guanylyl cyclase gene family. Like other membrane guanylyl cyclases, the 1101 aa retGC is predicted to have a hydrophobic amino-terminal signal sequence followed by a large extracellular domain, a single membrane spanning(More)
Na,K-ATPase plays a central role in the visual sensitivity of photoreceptors by driving the dark current of vision. The alpha 3 and beta 2 isoforms of Na,K-ATPase were previously shown to be the major alpha and beta subunit mRNAs expressed in photoreceptors. Here we compared the distribution of beta-subunits of the enzyme in the retina and kidney, using(More)
