Immobilization of Na,K-ATPase isolated from rat brain synaptic plasma membranes
MetadataShow full item record
Rat brain Na,K-ATPase partially purified by SDS from synaptic plasma membranes (SPM) was immobilized by adsorption on nitrocellulose (NC), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and glass fiber (GF) membranes, Partial SDS solubilization increased the enzyme activity by 40%. With regard to the presentation of the enzyme activity. nitrocellulose Was shown to be the optimal support for die immobilization, The enzyme showed the highest percentage activity (14%) after 30 min of SPM adsorption. at 20 degreesC under the vaccum. with 25 mug of proteins per NC disc filter. In addition, adsorption on NC stabilizes the Na,K-ATPase, since the activity was substantial 72 h after adsorption at 20 degreesC, After adsorption. the sensitivity of the enzyme to HgCl2 and CdCl2 inhibition was higher, The results show that immobilized Na,K-NTPase SPM can be used as a practical model for the detection of metal ions in different samples.
