Inhibitor-1 purified from rabbit liver could not be distinguished from the skeletal muscle protein by chromatographic, electrophoretic and immunological criteria. Amino acid sequences comprising 68% of rabbit liver inhibitor-1 were identical to the skeletal muscle protein indicating that they are products of a single gene. Total inhibitor-1 activity in heat-treated rabbit liver extracts was similar to that in skeletal muscle extracts, and the phosphorylation state of inhibitor-1 increased from 14% to 42% in rabbit liver in vivo after an intravenous injection of glucagon. Monospecific antibodies to rabbit skeletal muscle inhibitor-1 recognised a single major protein of identical electrophoret..View full abstract
