The larval midgut epithelial cell of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, has two forms of alkaline phosphatase and trehalase, soluble and membrane-bound. Alkaline phosphatase and trehalase of the latter form are found in the brush border membrane and the basolateral membrane, respectively. In this work we studied the membrane anchors of these membrane-bound enzymes. Alkaline phosphatase was solubilized by phosphatidyl-inositol-specific phospholipase C, but not by papain. Conversely, trehalase was… CONTINUE READING
