Functional consequences of the arabinosylcytosine structural lesion in DNA.

Abstract

Cytosine arabinoside (araC) is a potent antileukemic agent that is misincorporated into DNA in the course of its action. We have developed a chemical synthetic method that allows site-specific introduction of araC into synthetic DNA oligomers. We describe here the utilization of these oligomers as primer/template substrates for in vitro DNA synthesis… (More)
