Affinity labeling of a nerve growth factor receptor component on rat pheochromocytoma (PC12) cells.

Abstract

Clonal PC12 rat pheochromocytoma cells were sequentially incubated with 125I-labeled nerve growth factor and the photoreactive bifunctional agent hydroxysuccinimidyl-p-azidobenzoate. This treatment effected the crosslinking of 125I nerve growth factor to a PC12 cell component that exhibits an apparent Mr = 148 000-158 000, and consists of a single polypeptide chain with internal disulfide bonds. The amount of label associated with this Mr = 148 000-158 000 species was proportional to the degree of occupancy of nerve growth factor receptors by 125I-labeled nerve growth factor. Affinity labeling of this species was inhibited by the presence of 0.2 microM unlabeled nerve growth factor during incubation of PC12 cells with 125I nerve growth factor. In membranes prepared from PC12 cells hydroxysuccinimidyl-p-azidobenzoate effected the crosslinking of 125I-labeled nerve growth factor to an Mr = 120 000-130 000 species but not to the Mr = 148 000-158 000 component observed in intact cells. The kinetics of 125I nerve growth factor affinity labeling of the Mr = 148 000-158 000 species closely paralleled the time-course of 125I nerve growth factor association to two kinetically distinct forms of nerve growth factor receptors in PC12 cells. The data indicate that the Mr = 148 000-158 000 species affinity-labeled by 125I nerve growth factor is the native form of a component associated with kinetically different nerve growth factor receptors in PC12 cells.
