15. The distribution of the 64 trinucleotides was computed for the megaplasmid and the two chromosomes. The compositions of the megaplasmid and chromosome II were compared with the ␹ 2 test, with each other, and with similarly sized samples of chromosome I chosen uniformly at random. These tests indicate that all three elements have significantly different(More)
Uracil-DNA glycosylase (UDG) is a ubiquitous enzyme found in eukaryotes and prokaryotes [1][2][3]. This enzyme removes uracil bases that are present in DNA as a result of either deamination of cytosine or misincorporation of dUMP instead of dTMP [4] [5], and it is the primary activity in the DNA base excision repair pathway. Although UDG activities have(More)
