Using a radioimmunoassay for the IS50(R) proteins Tnp and Inh, we found that both proteins were present primarily in the cytoplasm, but 3 to 11% of Tnp and 3 to 5% of Inh were found in association with the inner membrane. The fractions of total Tnp and Inh that became membrane bound were unaffected by the amount of Tnp and Inh synthesized in whole cells, provided that the ratio of total Tnp to total Inh was not changed. In addition, Inh was not found in the membrane fraction in Tnp- IS50(R) mutants, indicating that Tnp is required for Inh localization.
