Method "Measurements were made on electron micrographs of NPCs in the highly enriched NPC fraction negatively stained with phosphotungstate (In isolated NPCs), or on thin section electron micrographs of NPCs in the enriched nuclei fraction (In nuclei). Each mean value is given with its standard deviation. Figures in brackets are the number of measurements made to obtain each mean value. A minus sign indicates that the measurement could not be made."
Comments "Surprisingly, the measurements obtained from the NPCs within the context of the yeast nuclei were very similar to those obtained from the isolated NPCs (Table II), though they are in full agreement with the dimensions of NPCs as seen in preparations of yeast cells (Moor and Miihlethaler, 1963 Severs et al., 1976 Willison and Johnston, 1978 Byers, 1981)."
