Detection and quantitation of a sodium-dependent sulfate cotransporter (NaSi-1) by sandwich-type enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

The sodium-dependent sulfate transporter (NaSi-1) DNA has been recently identified from rat kidney cortex. The objective of this study was to develop a quantitative assay for the NaSi-1 transporter protein. The NaSi-1 antigen was prepared by fusion protein techniques following analysis of the primary sequence for antigenicity. Polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies against the NaSi-1 antigen were raised in rabbits and mice, respectively. The specificity of the raised antibodies was examined by Western analysis using brush-border membrane (BBM) and basolateral membrane (BLM) purified from rat kidney cortex. Both NaSi-1 polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies detected a 69-kDa protein in the BBM. Using the purified monoclonal antibody as the capture antibody and the polyclonal antibody as the detecting antibody, a simple and sensitive sandwich-type enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was developed to quantitate NaSi-1 transporter protein levels in tissue. The specificity of the assay was examined using BBM, BLM and NaSi-1-transfected Madin-Darby canine kidney cells. The assay was capable of detecting NaSi-1 at levels as low as 6.58 fmol. The concentration of NaSi-1 transporter protein in crude membrane isolated from rat kidney cortex was 0.094+/-0.014 fmol/ microg protein (mean+/-SD of three preparations).[1]
