Abstract

During conjugation, the macronucleus of Epistylis articulata breaks up into a large no. of fragments, each of which gives an intensely pos. Feulgen reaction. As conjugation proceeds, each fragment develops a Feulgen-neg. space in its center which becomes progressively larger until in its final stage the DNA is in a very thin peripheral region. As this central area becomes Feulgen neg., it begins to stain with pyronine, indicating that DNA was progressively being replaced by RNA. [on SciFinder(R)]
