Size of the directing moiety at carbon 5 of cytosine and the activity of human DNA(cytosine-5) methyltransferase

, : Size of the directing moiety at carbon 5 of cytosine and the activity of human DNA(cytosine-5) methyltransferase. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 145(1): 146-152

M13 DNAs in which carbon 5 of each deoxycytidine residue in one strand is replaced with a bulky group are very good substrates for human DNA (cytosine-5) methyltransferase. Rate enhancements of up to 35 fold are obtained depending on the size of the moiety at C-5. The enzyme appears optimally suited to sense a methyl group in one strand at this position. Alkaline density gradient analyses of the distribution of methyl groups applied to 5-BrdCyd or 5-IdCyd substituted DNA reveal that these groups serve to direct the enzyme to methylate the unsubstituted strand.

Altered excitability of the skeletal muscle membrane (sarcolemma) can result in clinical signs of muscle dysfunction. Hyperexcitability of the sarcolemma results in myotonia, and hypoexcitability results in paresis or paralysis. Our understanding...
