Hybridization of labeled low molecular weight (LMW) nuclear RNA's to pre-mRNA from rabbit non-matured erythroid bone marrow cells or globin mRNA from reticulocytes revealed three RNA species having approximately 90, 100 and 160 nucleotides which are were specifically hybridized with purified cytoplasmic globin messenger RNA, while one (100 nucleotides) was also hybridized with rabbit 18S rRNA. The identity of these rabbit RNAs to LMW RNAs described for other animal species, as well as their possible hybridization sites and function are discussed.
