Selective Cytochemical Demonstration of Arginine Groups in Nucleoprotein in the Cell Nucleus

Article metrics

Abstract

USEFUL information should accrue from cytochemical measurements of the arginine contained in the basic proteins linked to deoxyribonucleic acid in the nucleus. The specific Sakaguchi reaction for arginine has been modified for microspectrophotometry1.
