Abstract

In an earlier publication we had reported the preparation of a rabbit antiserum specific for rat Clara cell secretory proteins. This rabbit anti-rat Clara cell serum was found to react with two proteins in rat lung lavage by crossed-immmunoelectrophoresis. Immunoblotting of rat lung lavage proteins, after sodiium dodecylsulphate (SDS) polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, disclosed three bands of reactivity with anti-Clara cell serum. The relative molecular masses of these three proteins were about 200 (protein A) 55 (protein B) and about 12 kDa (protein C). Anti-Clara cell antibodies eluted from Sepharose-4B-linked protein C (as well as the antiserum raised by immunizing rabbits with protein C) reacted with proteins A and C. Anti-Clara cell antiserum unbound to proteins A and C (as well as antiserum raised by immunizing rabbits with protein B) reacted with protein B only. In non-SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, protein B migrated as a single band, slightly cathodic to albumin; protein C resolved into three bands, all anodic to albumin. Immunoblots of isoelectric focusing gels showed three bands (pI 5.2-5.7) that reacted with antibody to protein C, and four bands corresponding to protein B were seen in the pI range 4.6-5.0. As determined by immunoperoxidase staining of paraformaldehyde fixed methacrylate embedded 1 μm thick sections of rat lung, protein(s) A (and protein C) and protein B were present in the same cells and in the same granules. Protein B was resistant to trypsin digestion, whereas proteins A and C were readily degraded by trypsin. Rat Clara cell secretory proteins consist of at least two antigenic types that appear to be functionally distinct, and each antigenic type displays charge microheterogeneity.
