Heterogeneous nuclear RNA is normally complexed with a specific set of proteins, forming ribonucleoprotein particles termed hnRNP. These particles are likely to be involved in mRNA processing. We have found that the structure of hnRNP is profoundly altered during the heat shock response in Drosophila cultured cells. Although hnRNA continues to be synthesized at a near-normal rate during heat shock, its assembly into hnRNP is incomplete, as evidenced by a greatly decreased protein content of the… CONTINUE READING
