  • A chemically synthesized 15-mer oligopeptide derived from the N terminus of high affinity progesterone-binding membrane site(s) from porcine liver was used to generate site-specific antibodies. Western blotting experiments confirmed the specificity of the anti-peptide serum obtained. In further investigations this antiserum was used for the identification of the native progesterone-binding membrane protein complex that represents an oligomer with an apparent molecular mass of about 200 kDa.
