Changes in nucleolar dry mass of neurones of the paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei in the rat during pregnancy and lactation

Abstract

Interference microscopy was used to measure the dry mass of nucleoli in unfixed nuclei isolated from neurones of the paraventricular (PV) and supraoptic (SO) nuclei of female rats. Changes in nucleolar dry mass during pregnancy and lactation have been interpreted as reflecting changes in rates of synthesis of ribosomes and protein in these neurones… (More)
