Abstract

We have purified a 37,000-dalton polypeptide (p37) from the red cell membrane that was found in previous studies to undergo a lineage-specific alteration in its membrane association. Our data suggest that p37 associated with the red cell membrane through electrostatic interactions that are resistant to 0.5 M NaCl or 10 mM EDTA. Conditions found to elute p37 from red cell ghosts include H2O at pH 12, 0.1 N NaOH + 1 mM ethanol and 1.0% Triton X-100. p37 was purified substantially from ghosts by Triton X-100 solubilization followed by sequential DEAE-Sephadex and CM-Sephadex chromatography. When p37 was analyzed by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, a family of isoelectric focusing variants was detected ranging in pI from 7.0 to 7.8. All of the isoelectric focusing variants showed homology to one another when compared serologically with anti-p37 antibodies or by limited peptide mapping using Staphylococcus aureus V8 protease. The isoelectric focusing variants appear to represent distinct, yet related polypeptides rather than degrees of post-translational modifications to a single species, inasmuch as all of the variants are present in anti-p37 immunoprecipitates prepared from in vitro translations programmed with p37 mRNA.
