Kinetic aspects of hemoglobin.haptoglobin-receptor interaction in rat liver plasma membranes, isolated liver cells, and liver cells in primary culture.

Abstract

125I-Hemoglobin.haptoglobin injected intravenously into rats was incorporated into liver parenchymal cells as evidenced by a cell separation technique. A mixture of freshly isolated liver parenchymal and nonparenchymal cells failed to internalize and degrade the 125I-hemoglobin.haptoglobin added, although it retained the ability to bind the molecule. The liver parenchymal cells in primary culture also lacked the ability to degrade 125I-hemoglobin.haptoglobin, although they bound the molecule more extensively as compared with the freshly isolated liver cells. It was confirmed that the 125I-hemoglobin.haptoglobin which was bound to the freshly isolated liver parenchymal cells localized on the outer surface of liver plasma membranes. Scatchard plots revealed the existence of two binding sites for 125I-hemoglobin-haptoglobin on the isolated liver plasma membrane: an apparent high affinity binding site (Kd = 1.3 X 10(-7) M) and an apparent low affinity binding site (Kd = 4.0 X 10(-6) M) at 37 degrees C. In contrast, freshly isolated liver parenchymal cells had only an apparent low affinity binding site (Kd = 1.4 X 10(-6) M) at 37 degrees C. Impairment of the apparent high affinity binding site during the isolation procedure with collagenase seemed to be related to loss of the ability to internalize and degrade the 125I-hemoglobin.haptoglobin molecules into the freshly isolated liver parenchymal cells or liver parenchymal cells in primary culture.
