abstract Highly purified lysosomes from the livers of normal and leupeptin- treated rats were subjected to immunoblot analysis, using antibodies against rat liver cystathionine gamma-lyase. Normal lysosomes showed small amount of single band at about 40 kDa, whereas the leupeptin- treated lysosomes showed large amounts of a major band at about 40 kDa and a minor band at about 35 kDa. These observations suggest that cystathionine gamma-lyase is sequestered into lysosomes at the original subunit molecular weight and is degraded in the lysosome by way of the sequential formation of an intermediate with distinct molecular weight.
