Abstract

DNA polymerase [EC 2.7.7.7] activities present in hypotonic extract from rat ascites hepatoma AH130 cells were eluted in three separable peaks on DEAE-cellulose column chromatography. Peak I activity had an alkaline pH optimum, and was relatively resistant to SH-blocking reagents and salt concentration. These properties of DEAE peak I are typical of low molecular weight DNA polymerase. DEAE peak II and peak III activities possessed properties corresponding to high molecular weight (6-8 S) polymerase; they showed maximal activity at neutral pH, and were sensitive to SH-blocking reagents and salt. No low molecular weight polymerase activity was released from DEAE peak II or peak III by salt treatment, though partial conversion from DEAE peak II to peak III was observed on the same treatment.
