Detection of sugar-binding sites in the fibrillar and the granular components of the nucleolus an experimental study in cultured mammalian cells

The intranucleolar distribution of sugar-binding sites (i.e., lectin-like molecules) was analyzed in segregated nucleoli of actinomycin D-treated HeLa cells. The detection of sugar-binding sites was performed by incubation either of permeabilized nuclei in the presence of fluorescein-labeled neoglycoproteins or of ultrathin sections cut through in situ-fixed nuclei in the presence of gold-labeled neoglycoproteins. In the former case, the fluorescent nucleolar components were identified by comparison with the nucleolar components of similarly treated cells observed in electron microscopy. For the first time, this study reveals the presence of sugar-binding sites in both the fibrillar and the granular components of the nucleolus.
