The role of DNA methylation in virus replication: inhibition of frog virus 3 replication by 5-azacytidine.

Abstract

Frog virus 3 (FV3) DNA is the most highly methylated DNA of any known DNA virus; about 20% of the cytosine residues in FV3 DNA are methylated (D. Willis and A. Granoff, 1980, Virology 107, 250-257). To understand the role of DNA methylation in virus replication, we have examined the effect of 5-azacytidine, a drug that inhibits DNA methylation. 5… (More)
