Solubilized membrane proteins from HL-60 cells were separated by two-step affinity chromatography. Proteins eluted with MgCl2 in the first heparin-gel were applied to the second heparin-gel and eluted with CaCl2. The eluted proteins were analysed and purified by electrophoresis. N-terminal amino acid sequences of eight proteins on the characteristic bands were determined. Homology search for the sequences indicated that three microsomal proteins, two nuclear proteins and a glycolytic enzyme were eluted with divalent cations, whereas a nuclear ribonucleoprotein and a membrane-cytoskelton linker protein were not dissociated with divalent cations, but with 2 M NaCl. Heparin affinity chromatography combined with differential elution with divalent cations can be a useful method for separation of membrane proteins.
