DNA polymerase activities in differentiating mouse neuroblastoma N-18 cells.


The activities of two DNA polymerases (DNA nucleotidyltransferases) ...
The activities of two DNA polymerases (DNA nucleotidyltransferases) were characterized in mouse neuroblastoma clone N-18 on the basis of their apparent molecular weights (determined by sucrose density gradient centrifugation: polymerase-alpha, 7.5-8 S; polymerase-beta, 3-4 S) and relative inhibition by sulfhydryl-blocking agents. N-Ethylmaleimide (10 mM) and iodoacetamide (1.5 mM) inhibited DNA polymerase-alpha activity completely, whereas only 35-40% inhibition was observed for DNA polymerase-beta under similar conditions. DNA polymerase-alpha activity was reduced 50-70% in N-18 cells that had been induced to differentiate by 4 micro M bromodeoxyuridine, and the low molecular weight DNA polymerase-beta activity remain unchanged. With activated calf thymus DNA as template, only DNA polymerase-alpha activity was stimulated in the presence of added ribonucleotides and purified Escherichia coli RNA polymerase.
