The beta-glucuronidase activity of Drosophila melanogaster exists as two chromatographically separable forms, both of which are glycoproteins. Form I is membrane-bound in vivo, has a pI of 8.0-8.5, and can be irreversibly inactivated either by incubation at 55 degrees C for 20 min or by incubation at 37 degrees C in the presence of 6 M urea. Form II exists both membrane-bound as well as membrane-free, has a pI of 4.5, and is resistant to the conditions which inactivate form I. The two forms are… CONTINUE READING
