>Does anybody know the pH of yeast nuclei?

Actually, I have NO real idea what the pH of the yeast nuclei is, but I
suspect that it is NOT acidic.  I have been using several flourecent
dyes which are weak bases and accumulate in acidic compartments (yeast
vacuoles) and I have never seen any signal coming from yeast nuclei.
