Immunocytochemical localization of cathepsins B and H in rat liver

, : Immunocytochemical localization of cathepsins B and H in rat liver. Histochemistry 88(1): 97-103

Light and electron microscopic localization of cathepsins B and H in rat liver was investigated by immunoenzyme and protein A-gold techniques. For light microscopy (LM), semi-thin sections of the Epon-embedded material were stained by the immunoenzyme technique after removal of epoxy resin. For electron microscopy (EM), ultra-thin sections of the Lowicryl K4M-embedded material were stained by the protein A-gold technique. By LM, reaction deposits for cathepsins B and H were present in the cytoplasmic granules of parenchymal cells and endothelial cells, and Kupffer cells. The sinus-lining cells and the parenchymal cells showed the similar staining intensity. By EM, gold particles were present exclusively in lysosomes of all the cell types cited above. The same results were obtained from quantitative analysis. In addition, Golgi complexes themselves were mostly negative but some small vesicles on the trans side of them were labeled for these proteinases. The results indicate that cathepsins B and H are present in the lysosomes of rat liver and that these enzymes seem to be transported by small vesicles from endoplasmic reticulum to lysosomes via tubuloreticular network of the trans Golgi region.
