Method Mouse L cells were maintained in MEM with 10% fetal calf serum. All media contained 0.1 mg/ml of streptomycin and 200 U/ml of penicillin. Determinations of nuclear diameter by phase-contrast microscopy, of height by electron microscopy, and of pore frequency by freeze-etching were done on cells during the exponential growth phase (48 h after plating). For determination of nuclear size the short and long axis of 50 live cells were measured and averaged separately.
