In simple terms strong interaction holds the atomic nucleus together while weak interaction allows certain nuclei to decay radioactively.
It was also pointed out that this might indicate that certain nuclei are not spherical but are deformed as an elipsoid, but no one could give a reasonable explanation of this phenomenon.
It was also pointed out by several research scientists that this might indicate that certain nuclei are not spherical but are deformed as an ellipsoid, but no one could give a reasonable explanation of this phenomenon
If this mass of nuclei is brought into contact with dilute acids the greater part of the protein is dissolved while the nucleic acid is left.
The behaviour of the heads of spermatozoa, which in their origin and histological characters really belong to the cell nuclei, is note-worthy.
They showed at the same time that the nucleic material belonged to a well-defined part of the nuclear substance which stood out in a very conspicuous manner during the transformation process, whose amount in various nuclei is variable and which because of its reaction to certain stains has received the name of "chromatin".
Continuing these investigations, Rutherford was able in 1919 to produce transmutations of atomic nuclei by bombarding nitrogen with helium nuclei from a radium source.
Alexa488-labeled phalloidin was used to detect F-actin and Hoechst stain to label nuclei
Among the plethora of available probes are dyes that label nuclei, the Golgi apparatus, the endoplasmic reticulum, and mitochondria, and also dyes such as fluorescently labeled phalloidins that target polymerized actin in cells.
Weak Nuclear Force is responsible for the radioactive decay of certain nuclei.
