Identification of potential ovomucoid mRNA precursors in chick oviduct nuclei

Abstract

Denaturing gel electrophoresis of chick oviduct nuclear RNA reveals multiple species of RNA that are 1.5–5 times larger than ovomucoid mRNA. By analogy with ovalbumin RNA processing, these data suggest that ovomucoid mRNA is derived from a primary transcript that contains intervening sequences.
