The pattern of aquaporin-1 water channel protein (AQP1) expression in the human kidney was analyzed by immunocytochemistry using semi-thin and optimized high-resolution immunoelectron microscopy based on freeze-substituted and Lowicryl HM20 embedded tissue. In addition, in situ hybridization was used to determine AQP1 mRNA distribution. Immunoblots revealed(More)
The topology of Ca2+-ATPase in sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) vesicles was investigated with the aid of sequence-specific antibodies, produced against oligopeptides corresponding to sequences close to the membranous portions of the protein. The antisera in competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays only reacted with intact SR vesicles to a limited extent,(More)
Membrane-bound Na, K-ATPase was digested with trypsin in the presence of Rb+ to form the stable 19-kDa and smaller fragments of the alpha-chain known to preserve occlusion of Rb+ (K+) or Na+. The trypsinized membranes obtained from pig kidney and shark rectal gland were analyzed by electron microscopy. Tryptic digestion preserved general membrane structure(More)
Using four oligopeptide-specific polyclonal antibodies, we mapped the alpha subunit of Na,K-ATPase by double-labeling immunoelectron microscopy combined with negative staining. The results show that the epitopes of the N-terminus (Gly1-His13), C-terminus (Ile1002-Tyr1016) and Leu815-Gln828 are located on the same face of crystallized Na,K-ATPase membranes(More)
