Nuclease activity persists in the most purified deoxyribonucleic acid polymerase preparations from normal and bacteriophage T2-infected Escherichiu coli (1,2). It has therefore been difficult t.o determine whether such a nucleolytic activity is an invariable component of bacterial polymerase. An opportunity to explore a source of polymerase which was promising in this respect was suggested by a survey of a variety of microorganisms for nuclease activity.’ Bacillus subtilis was identified in a… CONTINUE READING
