Binding of intrinsic factor to ileal brush border membrane in the rat.Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 1983 Aug 30; 115(1):238-44.BB
The rat ileal brush border membrane binds both free [125I]-intrinsic factor (IF) and the IF-[57Co]cobalamin (cbl) complex. This binding is observed with IF isolated from rat stomach, but not from IF isolated from hog, canine and human stomachs. The binding of rat-IF[57Co]cbl can be blocked with free rat IF but not with hog IF. The IF-cbl complex binds at a higher affinity (Ka = 0.15 X 10(9) M-1) compared to that of free IF (Ka = 0.9 X 10(9) M-1). Rat IF-cbl also binds efficiently to human and canine ileal membranes. While antibody to the canine ileal receptor blocks the binding of rat, human or hog IF-[57Co]cbl to human and canine ileal membranes, it does not affect the binding of rat IF-[57Co]cbl to rat ileal membranes. These findings demonstrate that the rat ileal receptor is different from canine and human ileal receptors.
