Abstract

Abstract A new method was developed for the analysis of DNA-protein crosslinks in Neurospora crassa. The formations of DNA-protein and DNA-DNA crosslinks were assayed following exposure of spheroplasts to HN2. Both types of crosslink were detected and were found to be repaired during recovery. Moreover a mutant sensitive to HN2 was defective in the removal of both types of crosslink.
