Target size of the 5′-nucleotidase in six different smooth muscles was determined by radiation inactivation. The enzyme in the soluble fraction of rat myometrium and vas deferens gave a target size of approximately 80,000 daltons. The plasma membrane bound 5′-nucleotidase however, gave target size of 80,000 to 110,000 daltons in rat gastric fundus and vas deferens and dog stomach and ileum, 135,000 daltons in rat mesenteric artery and 210,000 daltons in rat myometrium.
