nucleohistone

 [noo″kle-o-his´tōn]
the nucleoprotein complex made up of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and histones. It is the principal constituent of chromatin.

nu·cle·o·his·tone

(nū'klē-ō-his'tōn),
A complex of histone and deoxyribonucleic acid, the form in which the latter is usually found in the nuclei of cells; nucleohistone may be viewed as a salt between the basic protein and the acidic nucleic acid.

nucleohistone

/nu·cleo·his·tone/ (noo″kle-o-his´tōn) the nucleoprotein complex made up of DNA and histones, the principal constituent of chromatin.

(no͞o′klē-ō-hĭs′tōn′, nyo͞o′-)
n.
A nucleoprotein whose protein component is histone.

morsus-ranae show higher nuclear and cytoplasmic RNA, more nucleohistone, and more total protein (Cutter & Feldman, 1970b); similar results were obtained with Elodea canadensis (Dosier & Riopel, 1978).

These studies were in good agreement with the more physiologically relevant preference of histone Hl for the A-T rich regions of DNA in native nucleohistones described by Johns and Butler (1964) at the time.
