Association of cell surface receptors for melanotropin with the Golgi region in mouse melanoma cells.

Abstract

Binding of beta-melanotropin (betal-melanocyte stimulating hormone) to mouse melanoma cells occurs in a region on the cell surface overlying the Golgi complex. This association was demonstrated by labeling cells with fluorescein isothiocyanate hormone and by locating the Golgi complex with a histochemical test for thiamine pyrophosphatase activity. The… (More)
