Abstract

The deoxynucleotide (dNMP) composition of ten strains of C neoformans was analysed by 32P-labelling and two-dimensional thin-layer chromatography. This technique is very sensitive for detecting rare deoxynucleotide adducts and analogues (minor bases) in DNA. The results indicate considerable variation among strains in DNA nucleotide composition.
