Analysis of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase by isoelectric focusing coupled to a specific activity stain.


The procedure described allowed a convenient analysis of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase. The different phosphodiesterase forms present in a crude cytosolic preparation from rat heart were separated by isoelectric focusing on a polyacrylamide gel plate. Phosphodiesterase activity bands were rendered evident by a specific staining method. They were then… (More)
