Abstract

The subnucleolar structure that is involved in rDNA transcription has been controversial. A report by Koberna et al. (2002, this issue, page 743) adds significant weight toward the idea that dense fibrillar components (DFCs)* and fibrillar center (FC)/DFC borders are the sites of pre-rRNA synthesis.
