Abstract: Using immunoblotting with specific antibodies, we have identified b1- and b 2-subunits of Gi-proteins in membrane andcytosolic fractions of pig lung. It has been shown that b1-subunit is present both in membrane and cytosolic fractions, whereas b2-subunit is associated only with membranes. Activation of membrane-bound G proteins withnon-hydrolisable GTP analogues have led to partial release from membrane of b 1-, but not b 2-subunits. Whendepolimerisation of F-actin during fractionation was prevented, both b1- and b 2-subunits were found in fraction containing totalmembranes and F-actin. Dialysis of this fraction into low ionic strength buffer causeddepolimerization of the bulk of actin and release of about 1/4 of b1-subunits into solution. The data presented here suggest that distribution of b 1-subunits between membrane and cytosol could depend on the stateof actin cytoskeleton.
