The initiation sites for RNA transcription in Ad2 DNA.


Six restriction fragments of Ad2 DNA which contain sites for RNA initiation have been identified by their ability to hybridize nascent labeled RNA less than 1 kb in length. Four RNA initiation sites early in infection are identified in regions where previous work (Flint, 1977) had mapped mRNAs. The major late RNA initiation site is the origin of a giant… (More)
