Heat mutagenesis in bacteriophage T4: the transversion pathway.


Heat induces transversions (as well as transitions) at G-C base pairs in bacteriophage T4. The target base for transversions is guanine,which is converted to a product which is sometimes replicated and transcribed as a pyrimidine.A model for this process is proposed in which the deoxyguanosine glycosidic bond migrates from N9 to N2: the resulting deoxyneoguanosine may pair with normal guanine to produce G-C leads to C-G transversions.

Using Polbase tables:


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).


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.
