Isolation of renal proximal tubular brush-border membranes


Biber, J; Stieger, B; Stange, G; Murer, H (2007). Isolation of renal proximal tubular brush-border membranes. Nature Protocols, 2(6):1356-1359.

Abstract

This protocol describes a method for the isolation and purification of renal proximal tubular brush-border membranes in high yield and high purity. Based on a different reactivity of the brush-border membrane compared to other cellular membranes with divalent cations, such as Mg2+, purified membrane vesicles can be obtained after a few differential centrifugation steps (within approximately 3 h) that are suitable for in vitro studies, such as transport experiments or protein and lipid analysis.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
