Abstract—

Both particulate and soluble fractions of brain homogenates bound [3H]colchicine. Approximately one-half of the total colchicine-binding activity in mouse brain was found in the particulate fraction. Of the particulate fractions, the microsomal and nerveending subfractions which sediment at the 1·0–1·2 m interface on sucrose gradients were richest in colchicine-binding activity. Intact microtubules were not found in these fractions, but colchicine-binding activity of these fractions may be related to the presence of microtubular protein.
