With cultured mosquito cells derived from Aedes albopictus, standard methods for preparation of ribosomal subunits have proved to be unsatisfactory. A new method has been developed for isolation of ribosomal subunits after treatment of mosquito cells with puromycin in vivo. Our results suggest that this method may be applicable to a variety of eukaryotic cell types.
