Sulfobromophthalein (BSP) electrogenic transport activity in a plasma membrane vesicle preparation from rat liver is shown to depend on free sulfhydryl groups. These are organized in two classes, one of which does not react with the sulfhydryl group reagent 5,5'-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoate). The two classes appear to be involved in BSP transport independently. However, reactivity of one class can be shown to be affected by alkylation of the other. Hence, it is concluded that both classes are… CONTINUE READING
