|Abstract: ||A PtdIns 4-kinase from rat spleen particulate fraction was purified to homogeneity and its molecular properties were compared with a PtdIns 4-kinase from splenic lymphocytes. The enzyme activity was solubilized from spleen particulate fraction with Triton X-100 and chromatographed sequentially on phosphocellulose, DEAE-sephacel, heparin acrylamide and hydroxyapatite columns. The purified enzyme preparation showed a 55 kDa band on SDS-PAGE with silver staining. Renaturation of the enzyme activity from SDS-PAGE showed that it comigrated with the 55 kDa protein. Characterization of the enzyme showed that it was a type II PtdIns 4-kinase. Polyclonal antibodies raised against PtdIns 4-kinase inhibited the enzyme activity in in vitro assays. Analysis of adult rat tissue particulate fractions on immunoblots showed restricted immunoreactivity among PtdIns 4-kinases. However, the immunoreactivity is conserved in lymphoid tissues from mouse to human, suggesting that lymphoid tissue has a distinct PtdIns 4-kinase. Activation of rat splenocytes with Con A showed two fold increase in PtdIns 4-kinase activity. Comparison of PtdIns 4-kinases from spleen and splenic lymphocytes showed identical chromatographic behaviour, molecular mass, immunoreactivity, K-m values for PtdIns and inhibition by adenosine.|
