Comments Results of the quantitative Western blot analysis with antibodies against a mixture of two HU subunits indicated that about 30,000 to 55,000 HU molecules per cell exist in the exponentially growing cells of E. coli W3110 (Fig. 2H), indicating that HU, together with Fis, forms a major nucleoid component in the growing E. coli cell (see Fig. 3).
