Metachromatic staining with Coomassie Brilliant Blue R-250 of the proline-rich calf thymus histone, H1.

Abstract

In this report, we show that calf thymus histone 1 stains metachromatically with Coomassie Brilliant Blue R-250. Histone 1 gel bands appear red instead of the more familiar blue color characteristic of the vast majority of proteins. The red color and the spectral properties of histone 1 bands are qualitatively similar to those of collagen and procollagen… (More)
