Localization of mitochondrial 60-kD heat shock chaperonin protein (Hsp60) in pituitary growth hormone secretory granules and pancreatic zymogen granules.


We used quantitative immunogold electron microscopy and biochemical analysis to evaluate the subcellular distribution of Hsp60 in rat tissues. Western blot analysis, employing both monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies raised against mammalian Hsp60, shows that only a single 60-kD protein is reactive with the antibodies in brain, heart, kidney, liver… (More)
