Characterization of acetylcholine-receptor-enriched membranes from Torpedo californica electric tissue by negative-staining electron-microscopy and by lipid analysis is described. The protein/lipid ratio is 70%/30%. The lipids consist of 70% phospholipids (46% phosphatidylcholine, 31% phosphatidylethanolamine, 14% phosphatidylserine, 7% sphingomyelin, 2% phosphatidylinositol of the phospholipids determined) and 20% cholesterol. The acetylcholinesterase-enriched membranes show a similar… CONTINUE READING
