The Multiskan spectrophotometric system and Coomassie brilliant blue G-250 protein-dye binding method have been used together to measure NaOH-solubilized protein in subcellular membrane fractions prepared from isolated rat adipose cells. Forty-eight samples can be read in duplicate within 1 min. Sucrose in concentrations up to 0.7 m interfere only moderately with the assay. A rapid and convenient method is, therefore, now available for multiple protein determinations following sucellular fractionation on sucrose gradients.
