Cingulin, a protein component associated with the tight junctions of chicken intestinal epithelium, has been purified to homogeneity by a new procedure and characterized. Purified cingulin is a heat-stable elongated dimer, composed of two polypeptides of Mr 108,000 (cingulin-108), with a Stokes' radius of approximately 15 nm, and a molecular length of 130 nm +/- 32 nm. Monoclonal antibodies were used to determine the tissue distribution and subcellular localization of cingulin in a variety of… CONTINUE READING
