We first quantified some obvious but thus far neglected side effects of section staining on immunogold labeling, using mono- or polyclonal antibodies (Abs) against defined secretory and cell surface components, followed by F(ab)2 or protein A gold conjugates. Use of alkaline lead staining resulted in considerable rearrangement and loss of label unless sections were postfixed by glutaraldehyde after gold labeling. This artifact is specific for section staining with lead. It can be avoided by staining sections with aqueous uranyl acetate only to achieve high-resolution immunogold localization of a protein phosphatase on unicryl sections. In general, phosphatases are assumed to be closely, although loosely, associated with their targets. Because the occurrence of protein phosphatase 2B (calcineurin) in Paramecium has been previously established by biochemical and immunological work, as well as by molecular biology, we have used Abs against mammalian CaN or its subunits, CaN-A and CaN-B, for antigen mapping in these cells by quantitative immunogold labeling analysis. Using ABs against whole CaN, four structures are selectively labeled (with slightly decreasing intensity), i.e., infraciliary lattice (centrin-containing contractile cortical filament network), parasomal sacs (coated pits), and outlines of alveolar sacs (subplasmalemmal calcium stores, tightly attached to the cell membrane), as well as rims of chromatin-containing nuclear domains. In other subcellular regions, gold granules reached densities three to four times above background outside the cell but there was no selective enrichment, e.g., in cilia, ciliary basal bodies, cytosol, mitochondria, trichocysts (dense-core secretory organelles), and non-chromatin nuclear domains. Their labeling density was 4- to 8.5-fold (average 6.5-fold) less than that on selectively labeled structures. Labeling tendency was about the same with Abs against either subunit. Our findings may facilitate the examination of molecular targets contained in the selectively labeled structure.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Momayezi, Massoud</dc:creator> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Histochemistry and Cytochemistry 48 (2000), 9, pp. 1269-1281</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:creator>Plattner, Helmut</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kissmehl, Roland</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kissmehl, Roland</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:37:46Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Quantitative immunogold localization of protein phosphatase 2B (Calcineurin) in Paramecium Cells</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/7819"/> <dc:contributor>Momayezi, Massoud</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
