The structural framework of the rat liver nucleus has been identified and consists of a nuclear protein matrix. This matrix is 98.4% protein, 0.1% DNA, 1.2% RNA, and 0.5% phospholipid. The nuclear protein matrix is composed primarily of three acidic polypeptide fractions in the molecular weight range of 60-70,000 daltons.
