Its Golgi localization was confirmed by its colocalization with Golgi markers using indirect immunofluorescence microscopy. Immunogold labelling demonstrates that the majority of p28 was localized on the cis-Golgi and its associated structures. Two independent experiments demonstrate that the p28 epitope recognized by mAb HFD9 is exposed to the cytosol. Extraction of Golgi membranes with a variety of reagents revealed that p28 behaves like an integral membrane protein. mAb HFD9 thus defines a novel 28 kDa integral membrane protein on the cis-Golgi. To our knowledge, p28 represents the first integral membrane protein of the Golgi system identified via the antibody approach whose epitope is cytoplasmically-oriented and highly-conserved. Monoclonal antibody HFD9 will thus provide a useful tool for further studies on the cis side of the Golgi, which is not well characterised due to the lack of good markers.||Source Title:||Journal of Cell Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/111978||ISSN:||00219533|
