Abstract

A plasma membrane fraction was obtained by the combined use of differential centrifugation and aqueous polymer two-phase partitioning techniques. Vanadate-inhibited ATPase and glucan synthase activities were highly enriched in this fraction, although the presence of ATPase activity which was not inhibited by vanadate, nitrate, molybdate, anyimycin A or azide was also detected. Other intracellular membrane marker activities were present at very low or undetectable levels. A further separation step using Percoll density gradient centrifugation resulted in the separation of a fraction which exclusively contained vanadate-inhibited ATPase activity, and was enriched with silicotungstic-acid-staining membrane material. Latency tests performed on the plasma membrane markers showed that the membrane vesicles were in the right-side-out orientation.
