By John M. Graham, Joan A. Higgins

There were many vital advances in our figuring out of organic membrane constitution and serve as during the last decade. a lot of this growth has been pushed by means of the advance of recent options for learning membrane parts and their interactions. culture­ best friend, the research of membranes has principally happened in the domain names of biochemistry, actual chemistry, and mobile biology; yet some of the most important advances have resulted from a spread into different disciplines, corresponding to molecular biology, immunology, and the scientific sciences. In those volumes we now have tried to assemble a few of these techniques—to mix the previous and the recent. Biomembrane Protocols: II. structure and serve as is anxious completely with the structure and actions of membranes, while the better half quantity, Biomembrane Protocols: I. Isolation and research, bargains with their isolation and compositional research. the purpose of every bankruptcy is to supply certain technical and meth­ odological info that may permit the reader to accomplish the tech­ nique effectively, with no the necessity to seek advice different texts. certain stories of membrane constitution and serve as will not be incorporated, other than the place they're proper to the alternative or efficacy of a specific proce­ dure. as well as fabrics and strategies sections, every one bankruptcy has a Notes part that explains the explanations for taking definite steps and professional­ vides functional assistance for utilizing the concepts to different systems.

10. [3H]-inulm. 3. Methods 1. Test filter-grown cells (see Note C2) for monolayer integrity. Typttally this is done by the use of a radioactive tracer such as [3H]-inulin in complete medium added to the upper compartment for several hours at 37°C (see Note C3). A tight monolayer will prevent leakage of radioactivity from the apical to the basolateral side of the membrane. At the end of the incubation a sample of medium is withdrawn from the lower (basolateral) compartment. Monolayers that allow leakage of >l% of the total radioacttvity added to the apical compartment should not be used (see Notes C4-7).

Introduction The ability to compartmentalize function has enabled multicellular organisms to evolve sophisticated physiological systems. At the cellular level, compartmentalization of function is established by the maintenance of asymmetric structure and function between the apical and basolateral surfaces of the cell.
