Analytical Subcellular Fractionation of Endosomal Compartments in Rat Hepatocytes

  • Pierre J. Courtoy
Part of the Subcellular Biochemistry book series (SCBI, volume 19)


This chapter focuses on the contribution of complementary analytical fractionation procedures to the dissection of the endosomal compartments in rat hepatocytes. It also describes their composition and properties, and concludes with the proposal of a structural model. Recent reviews on endosomes and opinions on some unsolved issues can be found elsewhere (e.g., Gruenberg and Howell, 1989; Hubbard, 1989; Courtoy, 1991; Griffiths and Gruenberg, 1991; Murphy, 1991; Stoorvogel et al., 1991).
