The plasma membrance ATPase was partially purified by a linear glycerol density gradient centrifugation of the detergent-solubilized plasma membrance poteins and subsequent separation by a size-exclusion column chromatogrphy. A purified
ATPase preparation is shown to contain a 97.6kDa protein that was cross-reacted with an antibody raised against mung bean H+-ATPase. The preparation also exhibited the phosphorylation of exogenous phosphatidylionsitol(PI) when supplized with [γ-32P]ATP. These results indicate that one form plasma membrance ATPase is co-purified with PI kinase.
