Nuclear formation in a Drosophila cell-free system.

Berrios M , Avilion AA .


Abstract
A cell-free preparation obtained from 0- to 5-h-old Drosophila melanogaster embryos induces chromatin decondensation and nuclear formation from demembranated Xenopus sperm. Newly formed nuclei have a peripheral lamina, a double membrane, and structures resembling pore complexes. Indirect immunofluorescence analyses demonstrate the association of Drosophila lamins and DNA topoisomerase II with newly assembled nuclei.
