Failure of [32P]ADP-ribosylation by pertussis toxin to determine Gi alpha content in membranes from various human tissues. Improved radioimmunological quantification using the 125I-labelled C-terminal decapeptide of retinal transducin.


The quantitative determination of pertussis-toxin-sensitive guanine-nucleotide-binding proteins (G-proteins) in cell membranes is still a problem. Pertussis-toxin-catalysed [32P]ADP-ribosylation strongly relies on the substrate quality of the alpha-subunits and is influenced by the concentration of nucleotides, beta gamma-subunits, the physicochemical… (More)
