Echinomycin, a bis-intercalating, antitumor drug, has been studied for its ability to induce the deamination of cytosine to uracil (C→U) in double-stranded DNA. We have employed a sensitive lacZ α-complementation reversion assay to detect G·C→A·T mutations at a number of sites in M13mp2 DNA to determine the extent to which distortions of ...More
