32P-labelled chromatin proteins from rat liver and ventral prostate were fractionated according to the procedure designed to enrich high-mobility-group (HMG) nonhistone proteins. This fraction, however, reproducibly demonstrated small amounts of apparently basic nonhistone proteins other than HMG nonhistone proteins. These proteins appeared to be tissue specific and were highly labelled with 32P. The 32P-labelled phosphoproteins were soluble in trichloroacetic or perchloric acid, migrated in acid-urea polyacrylamide gels, and demonstrated pI values ranging from 6.8 to 7.5. The HMG proteins 1 and 2 showed no incorporation of radioactivity under these experimental conditions.
