A complex of histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 has been isolated from purified rat liver nuclei by a method which is both gentle and rapid. Nuclei were homogenised in 0.25 M sucrose and the residual nuclear material obtained after centrifligation was adsorbed on calcium phosphate gel. After removing histone H1 from the adsorbed material by washing with 1M NaCl in 25 mM sodium phosphate buffer, pH 6.0, histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 were eluted together, with 2 M NaCl in 25 mM sodium phosphate buffer, pH 7.0. The core histones so obtained migrated as a single sharp band on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis under non-denaturing conditions. Fractionation of the freshly prepared core histones on a Sephadex G-100 column yielded two major protein peaks. The peak having the larger elution volume contained histones H2A and H2B in equal amounts while the peak with the smaller elution volume contained all the four histones. Histones H3 and H4 were present in larger proportions in the second peak.

N-[2-Naphthyl]-glycine hydrazide has been shown for the first time as a potent inhibitor of the DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (EC 188.8.131.52) of

Modulations of initial rate kinetics of ADP-induced aggregation of citrated calf platelet-rich plasma by adenosine and ATP were investigated employing a spectrophotometric platelet aggregation assay. The data were analysed according to the tenets of sequential shape-change and interaction model of aggregation. Adenosine and ATP increased the slopes and intercepts of double-reciprocal plots of ADP-aggregation kinetics. Examination of their slope and intercept effects together with their effects individually and in combination, on aggregation rates, suggested that adenosine and ATP acted at multiple, nonoverlapping, sites.

Aggregation of calf platelets by platelet activating factor was characterized by a spectrophotometric method. The aggregation kinetics of both platelet-rich plasma and purified platelets showed concave up double-reciprocal plots and linear Hill plots with
