The partial sequence of a novel PtdIns-specific phospholipase C of the beta subfamily (PtdIns-PLC beta 3) is described. Based upon the predicted protein sequence, monospecific antibodies have been raised and used to identify a suitable source for purification of the protein. Fractionation of HeLa S3 cells revealed that immunoreactive PtdIns-PLC beta 3 is membrane associated; purification (approximately 1000-fold) from this fraction yielded a single immunoreactive protein of 158 kDa, with a specific activity of 136, with PtdIns 4,5-bisphosphate as substrate. Substrate specificity and Ca2+ dependence of this purified PtdIns-PLC are characteristic of the PtdIns-PLC beta subfamily.
