The purpose of this study was to determine the mechanism by which uracil DNA glycosylase locates uracil residues within double-stranded DNA. Using reaction conditions that contained low salt concentrations, the addition of uracil DNA glycosylase to plasmid DNAs containing multiple, randomly incorporated uracils resulted in the accumulation of form III DNA while unreacted form I DNA was still present. These data suggested that the enzyme utilizes a one-dimensional DNA-scanning mechanism such… CONTINUE READING
