Nonionic detergents, Triton X-100 and Brij 58, removed lipoid membranes of suspended thymus lymphocytes within 5 minutes. The mobilization and solubilization of cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins occurred much faster (less than 5 minutes) with Triton X-100 treatment than with Brij 58 treatment (less than 10 minutes). In Triton X-100 treated cells the loss of K+ was complete within 5 minutes whereas with Brij 58 treatment the K+ loss was not complete after 10 minutes. Thus, the high concentration… CONTINUE READING
