By a slight modification of the procedure described by Gratecos et al. (Gratecos, D., Knibiehler, M., Benoit, V. and Sémériva, M. (1978) Biochim. Biophpys. Acta 512, 508-524), the basolateral and brush border membranes of rabbit enterocytes have been purified concomitantly from the same aliquot of mucosa. The two types of membrane have been obtained with(More)
In vivo pulse-chase labeling of rabbit jejunum loops was used in conjunction with subcellular fractionation and quantitative immunoprecipitation to determine whether or not the newly synthesized aminopeptidase N transits through the basolateral membrane before it reaches the apical brush border, its final localization. The kinetics of the arrival of the(More)
The cellular and subcellular localizations of annexins I, II, VI and XIII in the rabbit intestine, liver and pancreas were studied by performing immunofluorescence labeling on thin frozen tissue sections using specific monoclonal antibodies. The expression of annexins was found to be finely regulated. Annexins XIII and I were expressed exclusively in the(More)
The filamentous brush border glycocalyx forming the 'enteric surface coat' of the intestinal epithelium is composed in rabbits of a 400 kDa mucin-type glycoprotein, which was purified using the 3A4 monoclonal antibody. This monoclonal antibody recognizes a filamentous brush border glycocalyx-specific glycosidic structure containing an O-acetylated sialic(More)
Membrane vesicle preparations are very appropriate material for studying the topology of glycoproteins integrated into specialized plasma membrane domains of polarized cells. Here we show that the flow cytometric measurement of fluorescence energy transfer used previously to study the relationship between surface components of isolated cells can be applied(More)
