The enzyme, called APOBEC3A, transformed cytosine, one of the four main bases in DNA that make up the genetic code, into a rarer form called uracil.
As a result, during the PCR, the reaction will randomly incorporate some uracil into the progeny DNA.
Better but not pricier Although proprietary, patented OBS chemistry is based on uracil, which is naturally present in the human body as one of the four building blocks of RNA nucleic acids.
This deamination process is normally counteracted by uracil-N-glycosylase, the product of the ung gene, and organisms defective in the removal of uracil from DNA have an increased spontaneous mutation rate and more G:C right arrow] A:T base-pair transitions (7).
6]A37) changes the anticodon stem loop structure such that uracil 34 flips around, leaving only two remaining uracil bases to interact with the messenger RNA codon.
Investigations of glutathione S-transferase (6), hemoglobin (7), uracil N-glycosylase (8), chorismate metabolism enzymes (9), and hypothetical protein targets associated with a structural genomics program (10) are representative of these efforts.
In the first possible role, pol [Iota] may play a role repairing uracil (U) in DNA.
