Localization of specific rDNA spacer sequences to the mouse L-cell nucleolar matrix.

Mouse L-cell nucleoli were isolated from sonicated nuclei by centrifugation and extensively treated with pancreatic DNase or micrococcal nuclease to obtain "core nucleoli." Core nucleoli still contained the precursors to rRNA and about 1% of the total nuclear DNA, which remained tightly bound even after the removal of some chromatin proteins with 2 M NaCl… CONTINUE READING
