[The mutagenic activity of N4-(4-aminobutoxy)-2'-deoxycytidine-5'-triphosphate].

Abstract

We have shown that deoxycytidine-5'-triphosphate modified by O-(4-aminobutyl)hydroxylamine in the pyrimidine ring, is effectively incorporated into DNA synthesizing in vitro, replacing deoxythymidine-5'-triphosphate or deoxycytidine-5'-triphosphate and inducing A-->G and G-->A transitions, respectively. UV spectroscopy and NMR spectroscopy have shown that… (More)
