SCI is a prominent, 170,000 Mr, non-histone protein of HeLa metaphase chromosomes. This protein binds DNA and was previously identified as one of the major structural components of the residual scaffold structure obtained by differential protein extraction from isolated chromosomes. The metaphase scaffold maintains chromosomal DNA in an organized, looped(More)
The molecular weights of Sendai and Newcastle disease virus RNA were estimated by sedimentation in sucrose gradients and by length measurements in the electron microscope under both denaturing and nondenaturing conditions. Sedimentation analyses under denaturing conditions yielded molecular weight estimates of 2.3 x 10(6) to 2.6 x 10(6), whereas length(More)
We have studied the three-dimensional folding of the scaffolding in histone H1-depleted chromosomes by immunofluorescence with an antibody specific for topoisomerase II. Two different types of decondensed chromosomes are observed. The majority of the chromosomes are expanded, and the central fluorescence signal is surrounded by a large halo of chromatin. A(More)
