A sensitive genetic assay for the detection of cytosine deamination: determination of rate constants and the activation energy.
Previously it has not been possible to determine the rate of deamination of cytosine in DNA at 37 degrees C because this reaction occurs so slowly. We describe here a sensitive genetic assay toExpand

Cytosine deamination in mismatched base pairs.
The rate of deamination of cytosine in mismatched base pairs has been determined. Incubation of M13mp2 nicked heteroduplex DNA molecules containing T.C or C.C mispairs in the lacZExpand

Boron-containing aptamers to ATP.
Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), an experimental treatment for certain cancers, destroys only cells near the boron; however, there is a need to develop highly specific delivery agents. AsExpand

High potency silencing by single-stranded boranophosphate siRNA
In RNA interference (RNAi), double-stranded short interfering RNA (ds-siRNA) inhibits expression from complementary mRNAs. Recently, it was demonstrated that short, single-stranded antisense RNAExpand

Analysis of subunit organization in chicken erythrocyte chromatin.
Micrococcal nuclease digestion of intact chicken erythrocyte nuclei is shown to result in the formation of core nucleoprotein particles containing about 140 base pairs of DNA. These core particles,Expand
