Specific binding is obtained by subtracting the nonspecific binding obtained in parallel reactions, containing 300 ixM veratridine or 500 /xM aconitine from the total binding. Specific binding ranges from 77 to 8 6 % of total binding. Protein concentrations in the vesicular preparation can b e determined by the m e t h o d of either Peterson (27) or L o w r y et al. (28). In the latter c a s e , the vesicular preparation must b e centrifuged and w a s h e d with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) in order to r e m o v e the H E P E S / T r i s .
