Presence of a putative 15S precursor to beta-globin mRNA but not to alpha-globin mRNA in Friend cells.

Dimethyl sulfoxide-induced Friend cells were labeled for periods of 5-60 min. The denatured RNA was fractionated by sucrose gradient centrifugation and the distribution of alpha- and beta-globin-specific [(3)H]RNA was determined by hybridization to hybrid plasmids containing mouse alpha- and beta-globin DNA, respectively. After 5 min of labeling, a 15S peak… CONTINUE READING
