Method Researchers quantitatively monitored chromatin organization and chromosome dynamics in living cells after HSV-1 infection by using a fusion of histone H2B and green fluorescent protein (H2B–GFP)(ref 15). For volume measurements, confocal sections of individual nuclei from H2B–GFP HeLa cells either not infected or infected with HSV-1 were processed and analysed with 3-D image-analysis software (Ana3D© Y. Usson).
Comments Table gives volumes of nuclei of non-infected and infected Hela cells 8 and 9.5 hours after infection. 690 µm^3 is average of nucleus volume at these 2 time points. Researchers report direct quantitative analysis of the global structural perturbations of interphase chromosome and interchromosome domain distribution caused by infection with herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1). For nuclear volume of Hela cell in cervix tissue of 374 um^3 see BNID 101402
