The mutation spectrum attributable to an antimutator DNA polymerase in a eukaryotic cell was examined. Drug-resistant thymidine kinase (tk) mutants derived from both a wild-type (wt) strain, KOS and an antimutator DNA polymerase (pol) mutant, PAAr5, of herpes simplex virus (HSV), were isolated, and the mutated tk genes were characterized at the sequence level. While both transition and frameshift mutations were found in the mutated tk genes derived from the wt KOS Pol, all the PAAr5-mediated… CONTINUE READING
