nucleoprotein

 [noo″kle-o-pro´tēn]
any of a class of conjugated proteins, consisting of nucleic acids and simple proteins (e.g., a histone).

nu·cle·o·pro·tein

(nū'klē-ō-prō'tēn),
A complex of protein and nucleic acid, the form in which essentially all nucleic acids exist in nature; chromosomes and viruses are largely nucleoprotein.

n.
Any of a group of complexes composed of protein and nucleic acid and found in the nuclei and cytoplasm of all living cells, as in chromatin and ribosomes, and in viruses.
