Fluorescence Anisotropy Experiments on Hog Renal Brush Border Membrane Vesicles
In a temperature study of the solute transport in hog renal brush border membrane (BBM) vesicles under tracer exchange conditions, discontinuities were observed in the Arrhenius plots for sodium-dependent D-glucose and phosphate uptake (De Smedt and Kinne, 1981). The most striking change in the slope of the Arrhenius plots occurred between 12 and 15°C. It has been suggested then that this behavior can be explained by an altered activity of intrinsic membrane proteins due to a change in membrane organization.
