Purification and DNA synthesis in cell-free extracts: properties of DNA polymerase II.

Abstract:

The major DNA-synthesizing enzyme present in Pol A(1) (-)Escherichia coli (DNA polymerase II) has been purified to homogeneity as judged by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The enzyme requires all four deoxynucleoside triphosphates, Mg(++), NH(4) (+), and native DNA for maximal activity. The enzyme activity is sensitive to sulfhydryl reagents and is insensitive to anti-DNA polymerase I antiserum. A second DNA-synthesizing enzyme, present in low amounts, has been identified in Pol A(1) (-) extracts. The relationship of this enzyme to DNA polymerases I and II is discussed.

Sorting:

Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).

Filtering:

It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
