[Effect of the structure of oligonucleotide substrates on interaction with methylase Eco dam].

The interaction of Eco dam methylase with various synthetic oligonucleotide substrates was investigated. The "imperfect" duplexes contained a normal GATC recognition sequence in one chain of the enzyme recognition site and had some defects in the complementary chain, i.e., the absence of one or several nucleotide residues or the presence of S-methyl… CONTINUE READING
