Postanoxic changes in cells of the CNS and, in particular, in neurons have been studied sufficiently well [i]. They depend on the type of anoxia, the character of the course of the process, and on other factors, and they can in general be reduced to manifestations of chromatolysis, hyperehromia, and combinations of both. However, whereas ultrastructural changes in the cytoplasm of neurons have been described in fair detail, there is little information on changes taking place in nuclei… Expand

Relationship between ultrastructure and function of hepatocyte chromatin: a study with adrenalectomized rats after cortisol administration.
The results demonstrating a strict relationship only between the chromatin pattern and the quantity of perichromatin fibrils, morphological expression of heterogeneous nuclear (hn) RNA which has been synthesized suggest that the Chromatin ultrastructural changes induced by cortisol are a consequence and not a cause of gene transcriptional activity.

A new staining method for ultrathin sections is proposed, which gives preferential contrast to certain cell structures known to contain RNA, whereas deoxyribonucleoproteins have lost most or all of the stain. Expand
