Studies on Soluble Ribonucleic Acid: The Action of Snake Venom Phosphodiesterase on Soluble Ribonucleic Acid in Yeast* T. NIHEI AND G. L. CANTONI WITH THETECHNICAL ASSISTANCE OF RACRELLE ROTHENBERG


Useful information on the structure of soluble ribonucleic acid may be obtained by a study of the action of snake venom diesterase on it, to the extent that the mechanism of action of the enzyme itself is understood. Snake venom phosphodiesterase has been widely studied and extensively purified (l-5). Two basic conclusions have been reached as to its… (More)
