DNA polymerase activity was studied in Coprinus cinereus, a basidiomycete fungus. Only one from of the enzyme could be demonstrated, whether by affinity or ion-exchange chromatography; this enzyme had a molecular weight of 185000 on Sephadex G-200, and was inhibited by mercaptoethanol. Coprinus, a representative of the most advanced type of the filamentous fungi, resembles other eukaryotic micro-organisms in its lack of a mammalian beta-type DNA polymerase. The properties of the polymerase are compared with those of two other fungi, and found to resemble most closely the yeast polymerase A in Mg2+ requirements and template preference.
