The active Na+/K+ pump is composed of an alpha and a beta subunit. Until now, three putative isoforms of the beta subunit have been identified that share sequence similarity. We have expressed the beta 1 and beta 3 isoforms of Xenopus laevis Na+/K(+)-ATPase in Xenopus oocytes to compare functional properties of the Na+/K+ pump, including either of these two(More)
The minimal functional Na,K-ATPase unit is composed of a catalytic alpha-subunit and a glycosylated beta-subunit. So far three putative beta-isoforms have been described, but only beta 1-isoforms have been identified clearly as part of a purified active enzyme complex. In this study we provide evidence that a putative beta 3-isoform might be the functional(More)
Subunit assembly plays an essential role in the maturation of oligomeric proteins. In this study, we have characterized the main structural and functional consequences of the assembly of alpha and beta subunits of Na,K-ATPase. Xenopus oocytes injected with alpha and/or beta cRNA were treated with brefeldin A, which permitted the accumulation of individual(More)
The ubiquitous Na,K- and the gastric H,K-pumps are heterodimeric plasma membrane proteins composed of an alpha and a beta subunit. The H,K-ATPase beta subunit (beta HK) can partially act as a surrogate for the Na,K-ATPase beta subunit (beta NK) in the formation of functional Na,K-pumps (Horisberger et al., 1991. J. Biol. Chem. 257:10338-10343). We have(More)
To study the role of the Na,K-ATPase beta subunit in the ion transport activity, we have coexpressed the Bufo alpha 1 subunit (alpha 1) with three different isotypes of beta subunits, the Bufo Na,K-ATPase beta 1 (beta 1NaK) or beta 3 (beta 3NaK) subunit or the beta subunit of the rabbit gastric H,K-ATPase (beta HK), by cRNA injection in Xenopus oocyte. We(More)
In small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) tumour cell contamination of leukaphereses is unknown. The present study was performed to define appropriate markers for reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), then to assess the contamination rate of leukaphereses and corresponding bone marrow samples. Immunocytochemistry (ICC) and RT-PCR methods were(More)
