Separation of newly-synthesized RNA by organomercurial agarose affinity chromatography.


Mouse myeloma cells, MOPC-31C, were incubated in the presence of 2-thiouridine and newly-synthesized RNA which appeared to contain 2-thioUMP as a constituent was separated from preexisting RNA by affinity chromatography using organomercurial agarose as a support. Both pH and salt concentration greatly affected the specific adsorption of the newly… (More)
