The antitumor agent BCNU (1,3-bis(2-chloroethyl)-1-nitrosourea) was incubated with poly(C) and poly(G) in aqueous solution at 37 degrees and pH 7 to produce approximately 0.33 and 0.07% substitution, respectively. Under the same conditions, there was relatively little reaction with poly(A) and poly(U). Poylnucleotides reacted with [14C]BCNU were digested by(More)
The recently described amphotropic group of murine leukemia viruses constitutes a distinct biological group, differing from the ecotropic and xenotropic groups in host range, cross interference, and serological reactivity. Viruses of this group have been detected only in wild mice from certain areas in California. By using a [3H]DNA probe synthesized in an(More)
