Abstract

The poly (A)-containing nuclear RNA from dimethylsulfoxide-induced Friend leukemia cells was fractionated by acrylamide gel electrophoresis in denaturing conditions and analyzed for alpha and beta globin RNA sequences. The results indicate that nuclear RNA contains one species of large-size RNA (0.6 X 10(6) daltons), which is the putative precursor for beta globin mRNA only. In addition, it was shown by electrophoretic analysis that the complex of RNA molecules not resolved by sucrose gradient centrifugation (11S) comprises sequences of decreasing size (0.34, 0.28, and 0.26 X 10(6) daltons), which might be the precursors of alpha and beta globin mRNA.
