In order to localize at EM level the sites of transcription of both pre-mRNA and pre-rRNA, we have detected the DNA/RNA hybrid molecules and m3Gcapped structures by means of specific antibodies after short bromo-uridine (BrU) incorporation. In addition, the sections have been stained by a selective RNA stain, terbium citrate. Our data indicate that perichromatin fibrils incorporate BrU and are labeled by the anti-hybrid probe; this supports the idea that they are the pre-mRNA transcription… CONTINUE READING
