Oligonucleotides as primers for polynucleotide phosphorylase.


Ribonucleoside diphosphates react to form polyribonucleotides and inorganic phosphate. Studies of the nature of nucleotide incorporation into nucleic acid in Escherichia coli led to the recognition of a similar reaction by Littauer and Kornberg (3). Beers (4,5) and Olmsted (6,7) have investigated the phosphorylase in Micrococcus lysodeikticus. Heppel et al… (More)
