Mamestra brassicae genomic DNAs, isolated from larvae and adult tissues and from in vitro cultured CRL-8003 cells, were enzymatically hydrolysed to nucleosides that were separated by HPLC. HPLC analysis showed that 5mC content in cabbage moth larvae, adults and cultured cells was 8.9 ± 0.5, 9.3% ± 0.2 and 10.2% ± 0.4 respectively. Cabbage moth 5mC content results the highest reported till now in insects and it is similar to the typical vertebrate one. Analysis of MspI and HpaII restriction… CONTINUE READING
