The effect of 2,6-dichloro-4-nitrophenol (DCNP), an inhibitor of phenol sulphotransferases (EC 2.8.2.-), on the biosynthesis of aminopeptidase N (EC was studied in organ-cultured pig intestinal mucosal explants. At 50 microM DCNP did not affect protein synthesis but it decreased incorporation of [35S]sulphate into aminopeptidase N and other major microvillar hydrolases by 70-85% compared with controls, indicating an inhibition of their post-translational tyrosine sulphation. In labelling experiments with [35S]methionine from 0.5 to 5 h, DCNP was tested for its possible influence on synthesis, processing and microvillar expression of aminopeptidase N, but no effect on any of these parameters could be detected. It can therefore be concluded that tyrosine sulphation is not required (for instance as a sorting signal) for the targeting of newly synthesized enzymes to the microvillar membrane.
