Abstract

Nucleoplasmic and non-histone chromatin proteins from two unrelated and four related mouse plasmaeytoma cell lines have been analysed by biosynthetic labelling with [35S]-methionine followed by one- and two-dimensional polyaerylamide gel electrophoresis. We have attempted to find a relationship between the patterns of nuclear proteins and gene expression in mutant plasmacytoma cell lines. The majority of nuclear proteins are common to all of the cell lines studied as would be expected if the majority of nuclear proteins are concerned with functions common to all plasma cells. There are, however, both qualitative and quantitative differences in the nuclear protein patterns of mutant and parent cell lines which appear to correlate with differences in gene expression. The turnover of nuclear proteins in two of the cell lines, MOPC 315.40 (IgA producer) and MOPC 315.32 (λ2 chain producer) was studied using pulse-chase techniques.
