Uptake of Adenine-8-C14 and Orotic-6-C14 Acid into Nuclear DNA of Non-Dividing Cells in the Adult Feline Neuraxis

Abstract

A biochemical investigation (1, 2) of the incorporation of adenine-8-C '4 and orotic-6-C 14 acid into the nucleic acids of the adult feline neuraxis showed rapid uptake of these precursors into pentosenucleic acid (PNA) in both white and gray matter. Deoxypentosenucleic acid (DNA) exhibited little, if any, uptake in short term experiments. In chronic… (More)
