Limited proteolysis of titin with trypsin yielded a number of polypeptides which were electrophoresed and transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane. Proteolytic removal of the C-terminal residues on the nitrocellulose-bound polypeptides was achieved by using carboxypeptidase Y. The species of the polypeptides left after the digestion was quantified by immunoblotting with two distinct monoclonal anti-titin antibodies A2 and A12 of which the epitopes were located at 0.74 μm and 0.69 μm away from the center of an A-band, respectively. Two polypeptides (266 kd and 84 kd) reactive to both antibodies were identified in the control group. Fifteen minutes after the digestion, the immunoreactivities of A2 on 266 kd and 84 kd polypeptides were disappeared, while those of A12 on these polypeptides were not affected. The results indicate that the C-terminal end of titin is located near the Z-line region and the N-terminal end at the M-line region in the sarcomere.
