Solubilization of the total membrane fraction of human platelets in a 2% solution of sodium deoxycholate and subsequent affinity chromatography on glutamate agarose resulted in two protein fractions possessing a glutamate-binding activity. As can be evidenced from radioligand binding data, the first fraction contains two types of binding sites (Kd1 = 1 microM, Bmax 1 = 100 pmol/mg of protein; Kd2 = 9.3 microMm Bmax2 = 395 pmol/mg of protein). The second fraction has only one type of binding sites (Kd = 1 microM, Bmax = = 110 pmol/mg of protein). SDS-PAAG electrophoresis revealed the presence in the first fraction of proteins with Mr of 14, 24, 56 and 155 kDa, whereas the second fraction was found to contain 14, 46, 71 and 155 kDa proteins. Solid phase immunoenzymatic analysis using poly- and monoclonal specific antibodies against mammalian brain glutamate-binding proteins revealed a marked immunochemical similarity of the isolated protein fractions with human brain synaptic membrane glutamate-binding proteins.
