Abstract

Two variants of a simplified procedure for the isolation of plasma membrane fractions from monkey and rat brains, are described. The preparations show marked enrichments in the marker enzymes, (Na+-K+) adenosine triphosphatase, acetylcholinesterase, 5′-nucleotidase and adenylate cyclase. Lipid analysis and a protein electrophoretic pattern are presented. An enzymatic check has been made to assess for contamination by other cellular organelles. The amino acid composition of brain membrane proteins show a resemblance to the reported composition of erythrocyte ghost proteins but differ from myelin proteins.
