The major membrane protein of the bovine lens fiber cell is a 26-kilodalton (kD) protein (MP26), which appears to be a component of the extensive junctional specializations found in these cells. To examine the arrangement of MP26 within the junctional membranes, various proteases were incubated with fiber cell membranes that had been isolated with or without urea and/or detergents. These membranes were analyzed with electron microscopy and SDS-PAGE to determine whether the junctional… CONTINUE READING
