Abstract

Structures consisting of connecting rings surrounding a fibrillar core were observed within nucleoli of developing normal and axotomized hamster facial motoneurons. A few appeared in the nucleoplasm, attached to coiled bodies. Their peculiar structure and temporal association with neuronal maturation may reflect a transient state of ribosomal RNA transcription.
