    Abstract

    myo-Inositol analysis of detergent-solubilized immunoaffinity-purified rat liver 5'-nucleotidase showed the presence of 1 mol of myo-inositol/mol of enzyme monomer. This provides unequivocal evidence that the ectoenzyme 5'-nucleotidase is attached to liver membranes by a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol lipid anchor.
