Abstract

We have cloned ratp28, a membrane protein from rat liver homologous to the previously described hpr6.6, a putative steroid-binding protein in humans. Ratp28 has a type II topology as determined by protease digestion experiments on intact and detergent-solubilized membranes. Subcellular fractionation by sucrose density centrifugation revealed a distribution for ratp28 identical to Bip as a marker for membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum. In these experiments no association was found with markers for Golgi or plasma membranes, indicating that ratp28 is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum.
