Two species of DNA polymerase alpha free of primase activity were identified in extracts of Ehrlich mouse cells that had been infected with minute virus of mice. Primase-free forms of DNA polymerase alpha eluted with 150 and 180 mM NaCl during ion-exchange chromatography on DEAE-cellulose columns, exhibited sedimentation coefficients of 11 S and 8.2 S, respectively, and were inhibited by aphidicolin, N2-(p-n-butylphenyl)-9-(2-deoxy-beta-D-ribofuranosyl)guanine 5'-triphosphate, and 2-(p-n-butylanilino)-9-(2-deoxy-beta-D-ribofuranosyl)adenine 5'-triphosphate. The ratio of primase-free DNA polymerase alpha to the DNA polymerase alpha-primase complex increased from 1.5 to greater than 100 during the course of infection, and free primase was produced during the MVM replicative cycle.
