Mutations in two cysteine-histidine-rich clusters in adenovirus type 2 DNA polymerase affect DNA binding.

Several point and linker insertion mutations in two Cys-His-rich regions of adenovirus (Ad) DNA polymerase (Pol) gene have been expressed in recombinant vaccinia virus. The resulting mutant enzymes were analyzed in vitro for their effects on DNA synthesis activity, on Ad-specific initiation assays, on gel shifts of Ad origin sequences, and on interactions… CONTINUE READING
